Hi ladies just want to give a shout out to my regular old and new customers!! Thank you for all the support from the beginning! It's been a crazy year and I just received my largest single order yet for 8kg!!! Wow! Talk about stocking up for the winter! I hope to remain your main UK supplier and get those deliveries out quicker..I'm trying!!

Have a good week and remember I now ship to the US and order before Wednesday so u don't miss delivery day!!

Ooo just a thought! Would you be interested in trying Kenyan or Ghanaian clay? I have potential suppliers from both countries and thought we could do with a bit of variety. Let me know here or email me at mavuseller@hotmail.co.uk which you'd prefer if not both!
Hi MavuSeller, don't know if this is from you or the original MavuSeller but is this something that is still possible?

I would love to try Kenyan clay. Also, now that you are shipping to US do you have plans to ship to other countries?

Hi angela I know how you feel. I have been having some serious cravings myself. I have a little bag of clay but it is not doing anything for me right now. It does not have that earthy taste that I like. It has everything else but that earthy flavor that I love. I hope you get it from them it has been awhile since I ordered from them. The last batch I got was real good. I ordered from another site and it was not quite up to par. I hope you only ordered ten lbs and not as much as you used to. I do not eat it as much but when I think about it my mouth begins to salivate. I know it is rough girl.

That craving won't go away until it is satisfied. How many months has it been since you had clay? I know it has been awhile. You did good. I think if you did not have a episode of your health situation you would still be going strong. I am thinking of getting from amazon it looks real earthy and good.

Hey Ackee. Yeah those stones are way harder on the system than clay. You literly feel it passing thru the system when you eat them. I use to each cement blocks it there isnt any real marl. Wld chip a piece off & nibble on it. It satisfies the craving if i eat a size like hlf of a lemon. Dont do it much now coz the cement make u feel awful. Then there was charcoal but thats carcinogenic. Then i used to feast on chalk esp street chalk. Several sticks a day. It was a trip hidin it from my then fiance lol. Now I satisfy the craving with eatin raw really dry quaker oats.

I would think that stones would be a bit hard on the system in comparison to clay. I think excess of stones or clay might cause kidney stones. Remember that they use clay for medicinal purposes in small quantity. By the way how do you satisfy your craving in JA. That video seems as if it contains Grey clay and red clay.

I gues eatng oats works for you I do not think I ould be satisfied because of the fact that it would not have that earth taste and crunch I like from eating clay. Do they use clay in JA for anything? I am sure their are others there that asr going through the same thing as you are. They probaly feel uncomfortable. Does your Family know that you like clay?
