Diatomaceous Earth

Dragonfly Products

Diatomaceous Earth is a fine powder made from the build up of fossilised water plants, which leaves behind a sediment that is rich in minerals such as silica. It can be used both internally and externally as a natural remedy for parasites such as fleas, ticks and some worms. Diatomaceous Earth destroys the outer skin of the parasite and essentially dries and kills both adult and larvae.
