Vegetable garden after the storm
Vegetable garden after the storm Unfortunately, July is also the month when we like to be saddened by stronger storms and hail. After the hail, all plants showing signs of life are immediately sprayed only with preparations containing algae or with a healing preparation containing the active substance brasinolide. Only after a day or two, when it dries up and dries out at least a little, do we consider what makes sense to process and what plants we are going to plant or re-sow. You can use marigold flower tea instead of seaweed. In any case, we save fruit trees. These are still growing well. Since they already have a well-developed root system, there will be even more harvest. Seaweed fruits are also watered to help the roots. Cut off the broken tops. We remove all damaged fruits, as they will only burden the already affected plant. Then the plants are sprinkled with sage tea, to which you can add a tablespoon of baking soda. You can also make a baking soda preparation, I would make it myself from milk instead of water. Buy copper foliar fertilizer or horsetail preparation from stores. Spray with these preparations at least three times in succession at intervals of three to five days. We also look at the remaining vegetables, we mainly clean all the broken parts of the plants. Instead of sage tea, you can also use thyme tea, yarrow or elderberry leaf preparation.

Exfoliation is one of the best things we can do for our skin. It helps eliminate dead cells and promotes the growth of new ones. One of the most common peels is loofah soap. The natural loofah sponge allows effective body massage and care of the hardest areas of the skin. Loofah massage improves metabolism and stimulates cell regeneration. It takes care of young and beautiful skin. The advantage of the loofah mushroom is that no bacteria grow there after use. When making soap, you can use sliced, ground or whole loofah rolls. LUFO SOAP For two oval soaps of 100 g each you need: 150 g of transparent soap to pour 2 loops of loofah (about 2 cm thick) 10 drops of lavender essential oil 2 drops of liquid red paint 2 drops of liquid turquoise paint Soap making is quick and easy: melt clear soap for molding. Set aside, add lavender essential oil and stir. Divide the melted soap into two parts. The first is red and the second turquoise. Place the loofah coils in the mold. Sprinkle them with alcohol and pour soap over them so that they are well covered. Spray the soaps in the mold again with alcohol and wait until they cool completely and harden. We’ll be sharing more about soap made without lye with you soon…

Concentration in learning
Concentration in learning When carrying out assessments, preparing for exams, we can help ourselves and our loved ones with a pleasant environment that encourages concentration for better learning. Herbs (teas, perfumes, preparations) also help us. Rosemary, for example, is known to improve concentration. This herb acts as a cognitive enhancer that helps improve memory, concentration, and mood. To do this, pour 2 to 3 drops of rosemary essential oil on a paper towel and then inhale its vapors deeply. Also effective is rosemary tea, for which you need a teaspoon of dried or fresh rosemary, which you pour with hot water. Let the herb steep in the covered infusion for 5 minutes, then strain the tea and drink it. More knowledge and advice can be found in the book Mediterranean herbs (hydrosols, teas and other preparations). By clicking on the cover, you can browse and order the book:
