What kind of clay do you eat? I eat white dirt (kaolin) and I have never experience itching. Maybe the clay is taking toxins out of your system and it comes out through your pores. Does this happen every time you eat clay.

Where do you get it from? I eat kaolin as well and have not experience that. Yes it taste good when you get a good piece that is earthy in taste.

I get it from http://www.sunclaytherapy.com/product_claybox...
It comes in powder form but I make chunks out of it and bake it. It is really good. I love the smell of it when I wet it.

Do you think maybe its how you bake it. Take a look at that. Also does it bother you when you eat it w/o baking it. Maybe you have an allergy to something in the clay. Please be careful that you are not harming yrslf with it. Sometimes clay will absorb the metal flavor jog what it is baked on . Try clay from somewhere else if it dies not bother you then it us the clay from that company. I know you like it but give it ago.
Everybody has their favorite clay.

I got it from Sams online. I used to buy from mutt and Jeff it was much cheaper but they do not seem to carry it anymore even though it is on their site. I do not have any now but I plan to treat myself soon. I like to break it into little pieces and just put it in my mouth and crunch it up. Mutt had better pieces. Sams had a few here and there.

I use to order from Sam's but like u said a few good pieces here and there. That's another reason I went to cornstarch. Some of the clay was very smooth and others were gritty(yuck).

I tried sams before. I didn't like the taste. I am taking a trip to georgia in august. Maybe I can try to dig up some fresh clay when i am there. I miss that mississippi clay. that was what I grew up on. that was so good.

I heard that granny's own was good but you can't seem to get it online . I guess you have to go to Georgia to get it. I have family living in GA but not tell them to get clay for me they would not understand. I love mutt and Jeff the majority of their clay was good.

I want to take a trip to Georgia myself. Can u imagine having access to all that dirt......I would pack a suit case full......LOL!!!! I've gt to order some and see if it has the same taste as I remember. I wish I had the courage to purchase like 10 boxes of cornstarch at one time. Dump them into a container and just enjoy myself.......talking abt cornstarch overload!!!!!!!

Maybe if you take a trip to the mines they will let you take away as much as you can carry. I've seen pictures on the net of people visiting the mines.
