ALOE THERE, PLANT WISDOM PT 2

Join us on a virtual journey through our plant ingredient library! 

Let's unlock secrets of primordial plant wisdom together as we dive deep into each ingredient infused into our tonics. It's regenerative agriculture for your home and garden in a sweet, little, four ounce bottle!

Aloe Vera is an ancient remedy for ailments ranging from sunburns to digestive issues and is celebrated for a myriad of regenerative properties. Throughout the ages aloe's medicinal benefits have been used in several cultures: Greece, Egypt, India, Mexico, Japan and China. Egyptian queens Cleopatra & Nefertiti incorporated aloe vera into daily beauty regimes. In the early 1800's, Aloe was utilized as a laxative and in the mid-1930s  was discovered to also to treat dermatitis. Today we find it in our cosmetics, hair products, toilet paper, and even our yogurt! 

But did you know aloe vera is a super food for plants too?

Although this easy to grow succulent consists of 99% water, the remaining solids contain more than 200 different beneficial chemical compounds including amino acids, soluble sugars, sterols, saponins, enzymes, salicylic acid, vitamins and minerals that optimize plant health. In many ways aloe is beneficial to plant ‘skin’ cells in the same manner it nourishes and replenishes human skin cells! 

That's precisely why fresh aloe vera is a key ingredient in our tonics! We distill all those nutrients and infuse them into every bottle of Sacred Soil and Sacred Leaf Tonic because we believe plants nourishing plants is the best approach to houseplant, garden, and agricultural care.

In our previous blog post Kelp Help we shared the incredible plant health benefits of incorporating nutrient dense algae into our tonics. We're excited to continue sharing how aloe and kelp synergize brilliantly along with soapnut berry and live sprouts to create the base of both Sacred Soil and Sacred Leaf Tonics. What's even more amazing? We feed the aloe harvested to make our tonics with our tonics! Feels so good to know we are closing the loop and creating regenerative solutions, and in the case of our aloe, a loop within a loop! 

Excited for you all to experience our fresh aloe infused plant care too! 

Happy growing and thanks so much for joining the SE communıty!

HOW TO GET RID OF SCALE

If you notice light tan to dark brown colored, oval shaped, flat bugs clustered together and surrounded by sticky, clear droplets of 'honeydew' on your leaves, most likely you've discovered a scale infestation. These little insects are tiny but mighty sap feeding destroyers of houseplants and gardens alike. They are insidious, affecting seemingly healthy plants meanwhile the plant’s life-force is being sucked dry leading to an eventual decay.

But no need to worry friends! We've tested our Sacred Tonics against these pests and are excited to share that we have found success, and the results are our happily glowing houseplants!
