EM Rinse Hair Color


Look at what EM's have done for my hair!!

The photo on the left was taken in March of this year, when I started to notice a richer color in my hair as a result of using our Luv'n Life Soap and drinking polypore tea. I may have also used EM with polypore as a rinse at this time.. not sure exactly about the timing of that. Anyway, I've noticed a slow increase in color over the months, and then decided to try my Black Walnut Hull EM as a rinse... wow!! Not only did the color of my hair return almost to the color of my youth, but it's nearly as soft as it once was!! I want my dh to try it, but he thinks he's earned his silver and is not sure he wants to relinquish it. Note, the picture was taken after using the rinse 4 times over the course of 5 days, but the color pretty much changed with the first rinse.

Just for comparison's sake, I've looked into using henna as a natural hair dye and it imparts a much deeper red than this, unless it's combined with other herbs, in which case it goes darker. You have to mix the henna the night before using, than leave it on for several hours, taking extreme care not to stain skin, sink, floor, etc., and rinsing it out sounds like an ordeal. In contrast, I simply poured about ½ cup of my Black Walnut EM on my wet, just shampooed hair as a rinse, quickly rinsing it out... no mess, no fuss, no staining, no waiting... voila!! An added bonus is that this makes the best conditioner I've ever used!!

If you want to try this yourself (I'm not guaranteeing anything, this is extremely experimental!!, but please share your results if you do!!), I have instructions for the way I brew EM's here, and then I simply fill a bucket with black walnuts and either cover them with AEM (activated EM's), or brew the EM's on the black walnuts by adding molasses, EM starter and possibly some wheat bran, good salt and whatever other herbs/clays/minerals catch my fancy at the moment). A similar method could work with polypore mushrooms or any of the herbs that are typically used for dyes, and might work with kombucha as well as EM... experiment at your own risk, but please share!! (You might want to test possible brews with hair clippings first.)


EM's Proven for Radiation Protection/Remediation

This is just so exciting, I had to share!! Japan is showing us how to heal! Or should I say that Nature is showing us how to heal! God is so amazingly good, in giving us answers before we have created problems beyond repair. Even the worst humanity has to offer has solutions in Nature. EM's, beneficial bacteria, TRANSMUTE toxins, completely rendering them harmless!!

Here's a quote from this amazing article:
In addition, there is a group of farmers in Fukushima Prefecture a little further from ground zero who have had their produce tested for radiation.  Again, the results are remarkable:
In the area of Date city of Fukushima prefecture, there are many farmers who have used EM well over 15 years. Mr. Makuta Takehiro has organized about 50 EM farmers under a supply chain management called “Agri-SCM”. The recent Tsunami and earthquake has forced approximately 10 farmers out of farming, leaving only 40 farmers in the group.
In order to prevent unfounded conjecture, Mr. Makuta took the harvested crops and vegetables of “Agri-SCM” farmers to Isotope Research for radiation measurement, all of which results showed “not-detected”. According to Mr. Makuta, some farm products from low contamination areas have shown high concentration above the allowable level when EM application has not been made. All EM applied farm products from Kohriyama and Fukushima cities have proved “not-detected” level of radiation, which seems to indicate that EM farming can solve radiation problems.

EM's for the Garden, Russian style

My last post was an update on our experience with EM's (efficient microbes) on our homestead.

In Russia, the term "EM's" has come into common use to describe homemade brews made to enhance soil fertility. A recipe for such a brew is offered in the book "Growing Vegetables with a Smile:"

50 gal water
lb of any compound fertilizer containing trace elements or, even better, 1/2 gl of dried bird droppings
1/2 bucket of compost
1/2 bucket of rotted straw
Fresh grass and leaves, if desired
1 c ashes or lime
2 lb of sugar
2 buckets of rotting fruit (or some 2 qts of old preserves)
Pinch of any kind of yeast
Ready in about a week (yeast is multiplied but not yet died out). At this point, a liter of curdled milk can be added for extra lactic acid. The resulting concoction is full of nutrients, microbes and stimulators. Watering with this brew invigorates plants and has a long lasting effect.

Want an easier and just as effective method?

1/2 c. of sugar or a c. of old preserves
3 qt water
pinch of baker's yeast

3-4 days, brew is flourishing. One c. of brew to bucket of water, once a week on seedlings and transplants and twice a month on adult plants. In a test, young plants developed nearly 2 times faster than those treated with EM and other store-bought stimulators.

"In general, the more beneficial ingredients are combined, the better. Mix together greens, comp;oat, half a dose of a chelate fertilizer, some form of sugar, lactic acid bacteria, and yeast, and you will get an effective and unequivocally harmless infusion. You could even call it the "drink of the gods" - nectar and ambrosia for plants. But even such "Herbalife" works only when it can penetrate the soil under stable moisture conditions. Otherwise, the microbes will die."

I will add my 2 cents to this method, and suggest that a person may want to consider adding some mycorrhizal fungi to the brew. Mycorrhizal fungi are mushroom species which enhance the growth of plants by helping to deliver nutrients and water to their roots. Fungi, like other beneficial bacteria, get destroyed by any invasive or abrupt action on the soil, such as tilling, chemical fertilizers, flooding, and leaving soil bare.

The spores are present on all parts of a mushroom, and multiply when cultured on sweet, just like yeasts do, so adding pieces of mushrooms or spore powder to your brews will help your gardens grow, and if you want to take the care to learn your mushrooms, you can do this with species that are also edible and enjoy extra fruit from your garden's fertilizer.

You can read more about mycorrhizal fungi and even purchase some spores to add to your brews here.

I will discuss the mycorrzial mushrooms that we cultivate in our garden area in a future post.

Think SPRING! Happy
