Just to let you all know that I have currently run out of stock of both the Ghana and Nigerian clay. Been getting loads of enquiries and just thought I should let you know. Will be getting some more stock in the second week of January. Will let you know as soon as I get it. Happy holidays and best wishes for the New Year.
Hi Soul Sista have the Ghana clay come in yet?

Hey Guys!,
I actually had a dream last night about eating clay hahaha! I dreamt I went into an African store and i wasn't even there to buy clay, then I just heard the lady ask one of the assistants if she has put the clay on the shelves yet! Lol. Then right before me the assistant started bringing out all types of varieties of clay, odowa, nzu, ghana clay, mavu clay etc and stocking them! I can't recall past that ! I don't know if I bought them or tasted them.....
What a dream! I would love to come across a store like that in real life, where all types of clay was in stock. I'd sample them all right there, so that I could buy a big supply of my favourites.

I have lost my taste for clay ... Lets se how long this will last.... Somebody brought me odowa from my country but this time it does not taste nice... It tastes sweet instead of earthy ... No cravings either...

@odowa lover
You are so lucky!!! Ive been looking for ways to get odowa, it looks soooo yummy. Maybe your cravings have reduced because you are eating more fruits and veggies? That works for me.
What do you mean it tastes sweet? You mean like sugary?

Yes it tastes sugary ..., sort of.. It came all the way from those sides of kisumu ... What a waste??? I thought it would be odowa original..

I'm back to craving clay again . That earthy taste is so good . I haven't ate it in it 5 days . So almost a week w/o eating clay must've brought my iron back low . I was kinda hoping that I got over the craving of clay . Guess not .

Hi Mary, that's the type I'm always trying to find here. I got excited a few weeks back when I spotted what I hoped would be good, but when I was able to go back I couldn't get access to the construction site.

Hi all,

If more bags are ordered, the postage would automatically increase. I would have to find out for each individual order if more than one bag is requested.

Take care and happy clay eating
