Would you believe that you can brush your teeth, fertilize your garden, purify your cooking oil, and sooth digestive issues with a single mineral? Wait till you learn all benefits and uses!
What exactly is this magic mineral? Zeolites are a popular group of minerals for collectors and are important for industrial and other purposes too. They combine rarity, beauty, complexity and unique crystal habits. Typically forming in the cavities (or vesicles) of volcanic rocks, zeolites are the result of very low grade metamorphism. Zeolite refers to any number of absorbent minerals containing traces of both silicon and aluminum. They have a porous structure that can accommodate a wide variety of cations, such as Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+ and others. Natural zeolites form as a result of volcanic action, taking anywhere from 50 to 50,000 years to complete formation.
Zeolites have found application in water filtration, construction, aquariums, detergents and alternative medicine. Zeolites can be used as solar thermal collectors and for adsorption refrigeration. It is also great as pet litter if you want to keep your pet just as toxic free as yourself. In aquariums, zeolites can be used to adsorb ammonia and other nitrogenous compounds.
We at Ecoizm find this all-natural versatile mineral very useful, and we are selling the zeolite products of Geoproduct LTD. that mines its raw materials in the famous wine region of Tokaj. The volcanic activity in the Tokaj-mountains 10-12 million years ago accumulated many key elements and spread them in the area. This is the power that their products hold in themselves, and we offer a wide range of them from personal hygene to household uses.
You can use zeolite to brush your teeth: Dentomin-N is a tooth-powder free from fluorine and all kinds of additives. The mineral compounds help prevent tooth and gum diseases. It is recommended especially for those who prefer natural substances, and are sensitive to additives or suffer from allergy. If you prefer flavoured toothpowders, Dentomin-Z is your best choice, because it has the same excellent qualities with the addition of the fresh scent of peppermint leaves.
Some people experienced that using zeolite topically on the skin soothes eczema and other skin diseases, so it may worth a try to blend it in a little shea butter or other natural oil to test if your skin condition reacts similarly. In the meantime, you can use zeolite as a body powder for deodoring, absorbing moisture, and soothing skin irritations. You can make a face mask by mixing 1-2 teaspoons of zeolite powder with a little water until you get a homogeneous paste. Add a dash of honey for more nourishment. Leave it on for a few minutes then scrub it off when it dried. Rinse your face with water and apply moisturizer.
Zeolites are also great for your digestive health! Neurosan entero is an over the counter medicinal powder that effectively treats gastrointestinal complaints, neurotic and infectious diarrhoea, bloating, and heartburn. It is filled with different kinds of trace elements which are very beneficial for the digestive tract and the whole body.
In agriculture, clinoptilolite (a naturally occurring zeolite) is used as a soil treatment. It provides a source of slowly released potassium. Zeolites can also act as water moderators, in which they will absorb up to 55% of their weight in water and slowly release it under the plant's demand. This property can prevent root rot and moderate drought cycles. Grab one of our soil-ameliorating mineral composites to see results in your garden or on your houseplants.
Winter weather makes it dangerous to walk on slippery sidewalks, and rock salt is not an option because it damages the environment. There is a zeolite solution for that as well: anti-slip granules. Ice-melting rock salt is harming plants, and it is only effective above -7 °C, the Anti-slip with calcium chloride however can be used on -30°C, and, as mentioned before zeolite also acts as a fertilizer when solved into the soil.
Most surface scrubs contain corrodent materials that are bad for your skin, health, the environment, and can also demage the surface you are cleaning. Suromin scrubbing powder on the other hand isn’t corrosive, and doesn’t scratch glazing or lacquering. It is suitable even for Inox surfaces. The powder is made of zeolite, biodegradable tenside and citric acid.
Want to save your burnt cooking oil? The Derolin cooking oil purifier can help you recycle used oil by deodoring and clearing it. When mixed in cooking oil the minerals of Derolin bond floating particles, and saturated fatty acids. The solid particles slowly precipitate, and the clear cooking oil stays on top, so it regenerates the oil. The mineral grains loaded with contaminating substances sink to the bottom of the liquid so the purified top can be decanted and reused easily. If you live in a detached house, you can compost the sludge, because it is a great nutriment for the soil.
These are just a few applications of zeolite, but I bet that some of our readers have other tips too! Let us know how you use zeolite in your life!
