What is Willard Water?

Willard water is chemically processed water containing ingredients such as rock salt, calcium chloride, and magnesium sulfate. Willard water was developed in the early twentieth century at the South Dakota School of Mines by a chemistry professor named John Wesley Willard, Ph.D. He developed and patented this special water as an industrial cleanser to clean and degrease train parts. People in the town tried taking Willard water as medicine. Soon Willard water became legendary as a cure-all for almost every disease known to humans and animals, and as a plant fertilizer.

People take Willard water for arthritis, acne, anxiety, nervous stomach, high blood pressure, ulcers, and hair loss.

Willard water is used as a treatment for leukemia in cows and cats.

In manufacturing, Willard water is used as a food preserver and a laundry aid.
