I have to say leslie I have enjoyed your post. You always put some interesting finds to read. It reminds me of another person who use to post some interesting things.Since getting so much info I was able to tell my brother I eat clay and the benefits surprisingly he was intrigued.

Hw did u package the clay, just wondering
I used a box and lined it with bubble wrap so the clay wouldn't break into pieces.

Soul Sista do you sell the ghana egg shaped clay?
Yes, I sell the Ghana clay and eat it as well. I'm trying to cut down gradually but it is so so difficult. Will get there one day, hopefully.

Hello ladies,so much has been on going on about our favourite habit.swabbi,hope you are doing great,soul sistas and mavu..my very dear clay sellers.@ leslie wow you have done an extensive research into geophagia that I honestly think you should start thinking of hosting/anchoring clay eaters tv show lol,you honestly know a lot.I love clay and would rather eat it than have food,but recently I have tried to cut down.somtimes I have so much control and other times I can't resist it.do you eat it everyday?how strong are your craves,are you constipated often?when did you start eating clay?

It's such a risk to bring clay to school & sneak & eat it when everyone is not looking . I just hope one day nobody would ask me what am I always eating . It's such a rush to sneak & eat clay but I love it . Makes the clay taste 100x better . Lol

Hello everybody, I was just thinking that no doubt clay has so many health benefits if taken in moderation, however would like to know what effect does it have on the kidneys.... I have ordered terramin baked clay from clay remedies... Will be trying clay for the first time only and only to have a better health...lets c how it tastes and how it works...I use to eat chalk on and off but not anymore.... Was also thinking instead of taking vitamins and minerals supplements why not try it in the raw form where I can also enjoy the taste....hav a good day everyone....

I like both Leslie's & Wanda's . If you want the soft crunch , the one that melts in your mouth you should try Leslie's & if you want the crunchy , crumbly then you should try Wanda's . They're both really good clays .
