10 Surprising Off-Grid Reasons You Should Stockpile Diatomaceous Earth

Sometimes the simplest solutions when you’re homesteading are the best. And that’s where diatomaceous earth comes in.

DE is the one thing you absolutely must have.

Diatomaceous earth is the fossilized remains of diatoms, which are found in oceans and other water bodies. The diatoms live for only about three days and their hard shell, made of silica, remains. The diatoms are ground up into a fine powder.

Don’t ever consume the pool variety or the insecticide version, as these are higher in crystalline content, which can harm the kidneys and shut them down. Food grade, 100 percent fossil shell flour is the right type to get.

Take a look at all of these uses – and then buy a bag of it. You won’t regret it

1. Heal old injuries.

It’s easy to end up with a sprained ankle on the homestead from stepping in a hole. These injuries can persist for years, but you have the secret weapon – DE. Add DE to juice, water, smoothies, yogurt or soup a few times a day in a dosage of 1 heaping tablespoon and you will see a big difference in these old injuries within a week or two.
