Not too modern to some people after all we are eating dirt so something must be wrong with us. We say cravings while other say it psychological. I think they are not sure. Food we eat grow in soil so it can't be that bad.Our ancestors have been doing it for centuries. We just go overboard. They used clay for medicinal purpose when necessary while we use it daily.
couldnt help chuckling at 'it can't be that bad'......

Hey Clay Family, so I tried so hard to try and like the Original Mavu Clay but it just wouldnt happen, it was way too smooth and I didnt have any earthy taste to it all and there was so much of it I just had to throw it away :(

:O you threw it away!? You should have given it to me! Did u bake it? Seems baking brings out the earthy flavour for most.

Being that it was soft baking it would make it hard and crunchy.

Is it bad that I'm just waiting on an email from Leslie or Wanda saying they're have a special on their clay? Like half price on clay or free shipping... Maybe it's just me . I LOVE their clay.

I got all my clays from Mavu last week. Thought I'd review..original is my favorite! I can eat it both baked and unbaked. Still as yummy. Prefer baked tho. Thought the red clay had a bit too much grit for me but the flavor was still super earthy. The white clay tastes clean and having tried Leslie's it's pretty much the same. Nakumatt is real crunchy and not sticky. Will have to stock up on the original mavu tho since I just checked her site and it's the only clay left in stock which can only mean one thing...it's next!

I am desperate for some ayilo right now. Does anyone know where I can get some or know someone who is willing to ship some? I will compensate for your time, price of the clay, and shipping. Love4clay is not selling it anymore, and Soul Sista is not responding.
