- Place the eggshells in the boiling water to kill off any bacteria and harmful pathogens that may be living.
- In the meantime, heat the oven to 200 degrees.
- After the shells are boiled, transfer them to a cookie sheet. Then bake the shells in the oven at 200 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Finally, remove them from the oven. Blend in a coffee grinder or high-speed blender (like a Vitamix) until you get a very fine powdered consistency (very important!)
- Store them in your Mason jar for future use.
