Re: Bach Flower Remedies: They are basically homeopathy at its best. Homeopathy is vibrational medicine meant to restore the body and energy field to its natural state. Flower remedies are the most gentle of all the homeopathic remedies.

Western medicine says that homeopathy is bogus, and believes that whatever benefit is gained by the recipient is due to the placebo effect. However, I've seen Bach Flower Remedies work on animals, babies, and small children who have little to no knowledge of what you are giving them.

I personally use 'Rescue Remedy' any time my body undergoes abnormal stress, like going to the dentist or flying long distances. Also Rescue Remedy would be good for shock. I have also used their 'olive' remedy for extreme fatigue... it doesn't make me all that much more awake per se but it does keep me from getting grouchy when I'm overtired.

The best way is to just choose one basic remedy and use it in context, and see if it actually works for you. Enjoy!

We just posted a blog on moon phases... in keeping with that theme, here's a great document on planting ‘uala available through Native Hawaiian Health; it's a PDF.

Recently, I came across something called Bach Flower Remedies. Since you guys have a focus on herbal medicine, perhaps one of you'll have an opinion on Bach Flower Remedies and their restorative claims?

What we're into:

Guerrilla gardening: Seed bombs

* Combine 2 parts mixed seeds (indigenous flowers, herbs or vegetables) with 3 parts compost. [For our pā‘ina, we're bombing with lā‘au; be careful of bombing with invasive weeds!]

* Stir in 5 parts powdered red or brown clay.

* Moisten with water until mixture is damp enough to mold into balls.

* Pinch off a penny-sized piece of the clay mixture and roll it between the palms of your hands until it forms a tight ball (1 inch in diameter).

* Set the balls on newspaper and allow to dry for 24 - 48 hours. Store in a cool, dry place until ready to sow.

Throw the balls into vacant lots, pavement cracks, long-standing rubbish piles, or anywhere that would benefit from a bit of random greenery.

Come try out some seed bombing at our April 17th event!

Those of you who have taken the lā‘au lapa‘au classes know that there's a tot to open the class (thought of the day). We'll post a few here, feel free to add your mana‘o.

S/he who is commanded in all things is a slothful and unwise servant. You should do many good things of your own free will.
