Yesterday's video has a great teaser for the coming topics :)

Skin Care - Of course

We are what we eat, and of course, since my skin is an organ it is logical that I would only 'wear' what I would also eat.  Would you eat plastic?, toxic chemicals? well, we don't actually want to, even when our base selves succumb to its abundance, right?  And I can store it easier than that many extra bottles of chemicals.

Cleaning skin = soap. bar soap, but the good old fashioned stuff.
Bath wash is not soap, it is a chemical bath.
Real bar soap in it's traditional form is awesome stuff. It has worked for a long time.  Mix with water and people will think it could change the world. it probably has.
Real soap is alkaline and has oils and is soapy....!  This phobia of dirty soap is counter intuitive.  bugs generally, the normal ones, like an acidic environment.  and like all things need a certain amount of water, oxygen and food...., add water and the "soap" breaks the surface of the water, making it "work"... so altogether, soap really is not a place that can support much bug life.  it is ignorance that often creates fear and that is ok, since even if not changed or accepted it is simply fixed. Just rinse the bar off before use if the fear keeps rearing its head!
I have a wonderful aunt that has made some fancy soaps, plain or herb and oils added which I enjoy. There is a lot of variety in soaps! glycerin, coconut, olive etc are common for respectively, a layer to hold in moisture, lathering, moisturizing,..
My favorite off the shelf that we use and often recommend for household, full body, regular everyday use at the sinks and in the showers is the Sprouts brand, green and white types.  No added chemical fragrance, no essential oils for medicinal reasons. Not to harsh and not too weak. And not so soft that (as long as it isnt left in the water) it will last as long as it should.. And they are cheap enough to compare to chemical soaps!  During the sweaty summertime I get my Husband the Trader Joes white tea tree soap. It is stronger (for stripping oils) and might help with killing bacteria that likes to hide in sweaty skin crevices.  I've never tested, but I think it might make a difference. It is nice that it is harder (by nature of the harsher oils) so it holds up to multiple showers per day without dissolving as fast.

Skin isn't the only thing that goes on our skin, When we shampoo our hair and wash our clothes then we cover ourselves all over again. 
I recently switched us to this one and it is great for everyone in the house, must improved on what we did for way too long previously.
And since I've have been asked,... I have a lot of hair and the baking soda no-poo route was too hard to keep going on.
I do not use conditioner for all the same reasons plus a few.  I put a spot of coconut oil on my hands, rub it around and Then on my comb so it is really just the tiniest bit starting at the bottom of my hair.  Usually that is all I need, eating good makes better hair.  However, for better formed curls (my girl has springy hair) and occasionally I use it too I found that a bit more of the coconut oil with the hot water rinse or something like this ( not sure if it is the oils or the aloe, still experimenting)

So this is my list, it is all food even if the ratios are different.
I can't say I don't use other things now and then or haven't used others, (I will list those at the bottom),  but for months at a time, this is what I do. 

day to day = coconut oilHave a jar in the bathroom. quick, easy, soaks in, and "doesn't need to be digested" to be immediately used by your cells.  It is good for immunity and just like all fats, it protects against things that you do not want growing on you.  besides it goes into your body to help feed your insides in good ways.
cuz remember we already know fat doesn't make fat, it gets 'digested', and we already know that simply put, fat hydrates and strengthens our cells. The Fat of the Land was a statement of good attributes.

depending on hormonal cycles, yep, we all have them,... = grapeseed and/or olive oil Your skin will tell you when coconut oil isn't enough.  When I get extra dry, the usual, starts on the hands for me, but also when I start thinking I saw a bit of fine lines, or the coconut oil either doesn't soak in or soaks in so fast that I can't get enough, then I need to eat some serious butter (Kerrygold in a pinch from WinCo, Rumianos from Azure Standard) and load the grapeseed or olive oil on.

That being said simply, TCM has the (7?) Devils (my book is still packed) which includes, heat, cold, wet, dry etc... and sometimes, my personal demons include the heat and dry, so my cheeks get red and the skin on my mouth/nose/ cheeks area gets super chapped. (this is different than my spleen weakness where my lips get chapped). This is all internal and I have to find my internal demon before it goes away.  One possible simple answer is Immucalm, which appropriately is half Astragalus root and half Marshmallow root. 

Detoxing needs = Castor Oil

This is a bit of a new one for me. Castor Oil = lymph glands and breaking up scar tissue or stagnant areas.  Most common would be neck and behind the ears, around your ribs to your armpits and around your pelvis and thighs.  These are common lymphatic back up areas because of over burdened detox areas.  Allergies and modern diets are common enough burdens, throw in the usual chemical baths we give ourselves and people have quite the breakouts.
Castor oil is awesome for warm oil packs.  Their usefulness is way way underrated and should be done way more often.  But I just have not done it enough to have found a quick satisfactory way to suggest doing it with out it feeling like a process.  It is awesome to mix with a fomentation, herbal tea good for the area.  My intent is often Mullein Lobelia in the individual beneficial ratio.
So in the meantime, I use it when my skin is obviously having a hard time from the inside and because it stays on the skin for a long time, when I am dry in the winter time.  It is nice in areas that you are trying to "treat". It carries Essential Oils into the internal scars or stagnant areas.  So just go with the simple ones or search a few since Essential oils are way-over used these days for such a special medicine there is a lot of info out there.  perhaps put some juniper in it on your lower back for kidney, bladder, Or put it on your swollen areas with Tumeric. etc...

Almost forgot, deodorant.  Skip the antiperspirant, You body sweats out toxins. so the more you keep your sweat in, the more it will try to come out until it can't. Your body works or it malfunctions. If you over sweat, then heal your body starting by cleaning up your diet and working from the main organs and glands and out. (meaning, start with your intestines.... then liver, then kidney.  and intestines then lymphs, etc)
Deodorant is for smelly stuff, right?  if you don't have toxins feeding bacteria in your sweat then it won't smell (as bad because also If you are sweating toxins out, then you might smell the toxins... it could be called a micro habitat, attracting micro life).
But by all means, we don't need to smell your toxins covered or mixing with toxic chemicals.  a quick search on the word 'fragrance' can mean even 300 ingredients that may or may not be a safe chemical unless they used the excuse that it is for fragrance.  of course it could just mean yummy smell, but that is the minority, and a reason to go with companies that are formed and run on good intent.  usually too hard to tell. Back to recommendations.
My mother in law makes one I love.  Before she started making her products, I was looking ,... All the other recipes I tried were a flop, no go, or I really dont like the smell of shea butter, but I quit trying recipes because hers rocks.   No I don't know the ingredients. but I know they are safe and with good intent and it works.  If you want, I will even try a taste :)


Put 3+ types of seeds in a cup(s) and bring it to RS or put it on a table somewhere?,
Bring it back every week until it shows edible food, leaves, fruit.
or when it gets too big, maybe they will let you leave it at the door. :)
 smaller ideas:
Green onion, parsley, celery (leaves are awesome so need need to stalk it), basil !, spinach, lettuce
mini peppers or banana peppers, cauliflower, broccolini,  cherry tomato
carrot, beet (get a kick out of the 36(?) seeds per seed), potato...,

Many people have never seen the plants. It takes the fear out.  (I have yet to do this idea though)
seeing it take shape and how to harvest gives a visual, tangible understanding/goal.

My favorite farmer's market farmer was a city boy who grew a bean in a cup at school.... and it changed his life... now he has a huge acreage of crops with the farmers market as just a part of it.
 a bean in a cup can make a difference :) 

The language of soil ...and food from soil... is universal.

Dehyrating Screen Tutorial

This is completely open to any alteration and development of your own!!

My criteria for a successful design was as follows:
  • Low cost
  • stable materials (not reactive to moisture: metal screen, wood 'untreated'
  • High air flow
  • light, easy to move yet large enough to do as much as possible and still: ...
  • fits through doorway and on a raised surface in my backyard
  • "lid" to keep birds off
 I bought the cheapest 'vinyl' screen.
This should NOT be solar screens but Should be a 'single', large, open weave to allow lots of air and light. I prefer the black/brown screen that is plastic feeling on the outside with a fiberglass core. This is usually one of the cheapest ones available ... BUT smell it to make sure it does NOT smell of chemicals etc. Do not use soft metals such as aluminum.
 I bought the smallest size amongst the long pine boards of the cheapest grade;
I selected them from the selection by three factors that make little difference: I laid them on the floor to find straighter ones; I looked for smaller or no knots; And I looked for the finer grained, lighter weight ones because they are less dense and easier on my stapler.
Choose the dimensions: 5 strips per tray.
Identify a raised surface to use (outdoor table, not on the ground)
and determine largest size that still fits within the perimeter (don't want it knocked off easily).
Determine smallest size: Be sure that it fits through your back door while 'tray' is level (with hands on the sides)
Since mine are rectangular, there are three sizes; square would likely be simpler because when cutting there would be 4 strips the same size and one slightly shorter.

I chose mine to be deeper than the width that fits through my single doorway so that it could be bigger overall.  (As an extra step, I planned so that it used the screen in such a manner that the left over strips could be used for sprouting screens on my jars or as two side by side halves for a tray.)

Measure and Cut, squarely and straight:
By being consistently precise it will be better fitting and a safer, longer lasting product. (Trays sitting flat on each other keeps flies out).
Turn the boards so they are taller, not wider.
As can be deduced from the picture, I added a single Middle bar which measures so that it fits snugly inside.  It needs to be nailed in at exactly center so that it stacks neatly on top of the other tray's Middle bar as well.
This gives the screen extra support so it doesn't sag and so the trays do not twist as much.
Since mine are rectangular, there are three lengths; square would likely be simpler because when cutting there would be 4 strips the same size and one slightly shorter.
 "Carpenters' tip to not split your wood"
 Cut the tips off of the nails! I used heavy duty wire cutters.
The "flat" tip now crushes into the wood instead of splitting your wood.

To create a stronger tray:
Arrange your board strips so that the corners are rotating; by putting the boards in a 'spiral', you can only see the end of one from each side.
Use two nails per corner so that boards do not twist.   I have used smaller nails but these work nicely.
Just buy a box so that in a few years you still have some to make new trays with.  It is the most expensive investment.

Attaching the screen:
Cut the screen as straight as easily possible, mostly between rows so that as little of the fiberglass is exposed as possible. Trim when length is exposed. (It creates microscopic slivers that I don't like rubbing my arm on.)
I used staples to attach the screen to the boards. Pull nearly as tight as possible because it will have some give and will sag over time. Pulling too tight; however, creates holes and tears. I assume flat tacks would also work.  My attention to detail also demands that I space them as I go around the square so that I can re-pull/tighten and stagger the staples.
My stapler is a bit wimpy so I have to use a hammer to finish getting them flush.

Make at least two trays:
Use the remnant wood strips to raise screen trays up off the table top for more air flow and also keeps trays from sitting in water if left out in the weather. When juices fall underneath, I can quickly hose off underneath without moving the trays.
Three trays is easy to do with the number of boards.
One tray is always your lid, Others are stacked with food so that they are ALL fully contained.  I have not done more than four trays (three with food). I haven't ever had time to cut more than that in one day, but I think they would have to be rotated if you did as the inner level would not have as good exposure to air and sunlight.

Picture Caption: These are my first and second trays I ever made. Notice in this picture that the top tray has two board ends, but the two bottom trays have just one end showing.  The top tray died quickly.
( By the way, We didn't like the apples. just preference to the juicier = chewy fruits)

Dehydrate anytime the weather is under 60% humidity (which here means 'not raining')  and over 80*F 

Sprouted wheat, buckwheat, and other seeds dehydrate year round, the cooler temperature just changes how many days it takes. Take note: Be aware that the fully swollen seed is 'sprouted' and that after that a longer sprouted tail changes chemistry of the flour. (ex/ growing longer tails made chewy cookies into fluffy cookies)

In the Summer, stone fruit such as peaches, sliced on before 10 am is often dried by nightfall - so quickly it doesn't have time to brown- and can be removed in the evening or even left until morning when another batch can be put on. I often take my bowl of fruit, knife, and a water/trash bowl to rinse in, right out to the screen and cut so that it falls directly onto the trays. 

Have fun!! Great Quality for super cheap and Way faster than the standard machines

Planting Fruit Trees

There is an unseen world that living things communicate and interact and are a part of... This pdf has a method of planting trees that boosts their growth because that world was not ignored.
The magnetic north has it's draw as well as each element in it's form.  Whatever place we have as caretakers in this world, we can and will figure out follow the desire and in the action of our duties.

"Fresh fruit is a wonderful gift from our
Creator meant to be savored for its
excellent flavor. While vegetables and
other foods have their place, nothing
else can take fresh fruits’ position as
“cream of the crop.”
Fruit quality can be measured from
many perspectives including, proper
sizing, flavor, brix reading, market
value, total solids, acid to brix ratio,
storage characteristics, and nutrient
...Fruit above mediocre. "

Soil Testing

What would be a more fitting battlefield tactic from the PTB to not "see" our Maker if we were convinced or distracted enough to never see the natural world in all it's beauty, complexity, order, magnificence, intelligence, design and our equally perfect integration in it ...
instead we could make it part of our interests and studies and using it for our synergistic benefit. ... So just as the shepherds and others of ancient time, LOOK UP!!

Fall 2012 Biodynamics Journal: Is Agriculture Sacred?

Here is a tidbit regarding the moon from an RBTI Brix forum I follow:
"It took a while to dig it out, but I did find these words by Reams in his unpublished autobiography that may be of use to you.
I began analyzing the same piece of ground that had nothing growing on it, every day for 90 days. I was amazed at what happened. During the full moon, the temperature of that soil was the hottest. And when the soil was the hottest, the nitrogen was the highest. On new moon, the air was the hottest, but the soil was the coolest, just opposite. Then I realized that if plants came into production whenever the nights were moonlight, then all the blossoms would shed because the nitrogen was too high. They had to be planted so they would come into production at blossom stage when the nights were dark because the nitrogen content in the soil was the lowest at that time and then the blossoms would stay on the plants.
I can add that Jon Frank reported that he found Reams' suggestion of a few hundred pounds per acre ammonium sulfate truly has a remarkable ability to keep soil temperatures constant right through the hottest part of the year. As with many other things, moon phases probably matter more where the major elements are not properly addressed.

plants like humans are constantly on a reproduction growth cycle, knowing when to use those reproduction growth fertilizers in sync with the moon can only be of benefit. t."

A few Cleaning and personal needs Suggestions

UnScented, Low Water, High Efficiency Cleaning:
Charlie's soap (any good "cloth diaper" detergent is no residue, high efficiency),
Biokleen (just one brand of kitchen detergents, also works as efficient Shampoo). 
Both detergents works well in the bathroom and garage. 
Deodorants and soaps should be low water, clean rinsing, and not smell the day(s) after, esp if cleaning is not available every day....

a few Low water, NO trash Personal Hygiene Products
What happens when the trash pickup is interrupted?
Can you imagine the piles of baby diapers and female menstruation garbage? And then running out?
(If some of us don't have our glasses/contacts then we won't have to see it!)
 ....perhaps just imagine smelling the Middle Ages of Europe's streets...

My personal daily preference diapers:
(upper) Rumparooz and (lower) Thirsties
Both have additional shaping around the legs ("gussets" = never have another blowout again)
These Cover any absorbent inner - I use anything from "fitted" with snaps To a simple washcloth folded in half.
An optional sheet of liner for flipping off solid waste for flushing etc

Diva Cup
(bought locally at Sprouts during sale) - but multiple brands available
I prefer silicon, but rubber/latex ones have been available for about 100 years!!!
Why don't we all use these? I can hike, swim, sleep in,... ! ....and no smell.
....what makes more money, something you throw away a few times a day or something you use for years!!???
This is simply poured out, preferably rinsed/washed, such as with that no residue type soap, and replaced.

Nutrition and Gardening, introduction into Electric Universe

Invitation: I've downloaded the report = enjoyable reading

THE BELOW IS ALL QUOTED - see bottom of post: 
Let's summarize why it is so important
to grow our own nutrition.

1. Food carries nutrients from the soil to your body

2. As the soil so the food

3. To grow better foods first grow the soil

4. To grow better soil it must be crafted

5. To grow your health you must change your food supply

All of these points are covered in the
free report called *Grow Your Own Nutrition* but I would like to emphasize
point no. 4.

*To Grow Better Soil It Must Be Crafted* Soil is malleable. It can be
changed by your stewardship. As you apply what is deficient the pattern of
the soil changes.

The goal of crafting soil is a lot like a sculptor. Michelangelo could take
a large hunk of marble and chip away at it until it became a thing of
beauty. This is exactly what can be done in your garden.

Excessive nutrients are avoided while
deficient nutrients are added. Calcium, phosphorous, and potassium levels
and ratios play a huge role in sculpting a soil capable of growing
therapeutic grade foods.

This changing of the pattern directly
impacts the environment for soil biology and the quality of the produce
being raised.
As Dr. Reams used to say "Cause and Effect, Cause and Effect."

I wrote this report in early 2011 but did not publicly release it till now.

*A One-Winged Bird Cannot Fly*
It takes two wings for a bird to fly.
While this report centers on growing food its conclusion clearly points
toward soil mineralization. Soil mineralization is foundational for
revitalizing our food supply.
Call it the right wing.

At the same time the applied minerals need to be mobilized from the soil
into the plant.
Achieving this requires the other wing. The "other wing" will be described
in-depth in an up-coming video. Look for it in 3-5 days.

In the meantime can I ask a favor from you?
If you have friends who you know could benefit from this information please
forward this email to them. If this report leads to questions or comments
please leave them on the download page or email them to me. I plan on
compiling these comments/questions into a future video. Thanks.

Lastly, here is the signup page for the report.
