Soil is vital to the health of both people and the planet. Unfortunately, it is often the most overlooked of all agricultural inputs. The U.N. General Assembly declared 2015 the International Year of Soils (IYS) to increase awareness and understanding of the many important roles of soil...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The soil; it's all about the soil. Where we plant our seeds determines how we live. It is a rule that runs literally and metaphorically in our crops, our lives, and our intentions. Without a solid foundation, what can grow? Well?

 

Organic Living


 

by Doctress Neutopia

Wholistic Gaia science is not only a foundational world view for the investigation of "the details of how all organisms exchange gases and other chemical compounds with the water, atmosphere and soils of Earth." But, from a cultural standpoint, what I am seeing is that Gaia is also a foundation for a planetary religion, a benevolent new way of living with and revering the Earth. Gaia shows us the way to create evolutionary new habitats so that we have not only the scientific technology, but the philosophy to peacefully penetrate deeper into the mysteries of the Universe using both science and art.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: The unique series of body treatments with herbal oils, pastes and scrubs is what makes Ayurveda one of the most powerful natural medicines known to date. According to Ayurvedic scholar Sushrata, Udvartana is one of a three-part treatment designed to detoxify, reduce fat, strengthen and tone the body. By appling dry herbs in a "scrub" form to the skin through massage, Udvartana stimulates blood and lymphatic stimulation, toxin elimination and absorption of herbal medicine. This video about Udartana by Ayurvedic Practitioner Lisa Belisle describes the process and what to expect from a treatment. Note that Udvartana is often best suited for kapha types and should not typically be used by pittas or vatas because of skin sensitivity. Namaste

Ayurveda


from Gerry McCarthy, Leyden House Ltd.

Here's a very basic and simple recipe for bath salts - just 4 ingredients and nothing else required except a tightly closing jar and a spoon. You can easily personalize this recipe by using different essential oils for different purposes. Have fun with this one...

 

Editor's Note: Enhance the moisturizing aspect of the glycerin by using Roman Chamomile, Geranium, Rosewood, or Palmarosa essential oils.  After bathing, follow up with a body oil or lotion.

 

Aromatherapy


 

Editor's Note from Zorica Denton: In Chicago, the city passed codes offering incentives to builders who put green roofs on buildings. For individuals, a primary benefit of green roofs are that cooling and heating costs are significantly reduced. You only need 4 inches of soil, a moisture barrier and an idea of how to select the right plants.. no watering!
See here how to create a low maintenance green roof.
