Fuller's Earth is a clay mined from the earth's crust that typically contains a complex of minerals, including quartz, silica, iron, calcite and dolomite.

At one time, this material was used in apothecaries in compounding pills. Because this material is highly absorbent, it is used to spot "dry clean" fabrics and is an ingredient in dry shampoos.

Fuller's earth is also combined with other botanicals to make herbal body powders and facial masks.

Fuller's Earth, powder

Scientific Name: Magnesium Aluminum Silicate
Origin: United States

Background: Fullers earth is a type of clay that has many uses. It has properties that allow it to absorb oil. This has made it useful in industry where it's been used to soak up automotive oil and grease. It's also been used as a component of cat litter.

The name of fullers earth comes from the people who were the first to capitalize on its use. Laborers who processed wool used it to soak up the oil from the sheep. These workers were called "fullers" and that's where the clay gets its name.

Description: Fullers earth is a mineral clay that's found abundantly in the world.

Safety: There is no negative information available for fullers earth. Consult your health care provider before beginning use of any herb.
