The Secret of Basic H® in Your Garden


Summertime is when all of us want to enjoy the beauty and bounty of our gardens – but who
wants to spend all their time taking care of them?

Basic-H® has been used for years by farmers and home gardeners alike to reduce the amount of watering time, improve the quality of the soil, and treat for pests. Even in those areas where Basic-H® Soil Conditioner is not available (Pennsylvania, for instance), you can still get great results by using Basic-H®, Basic-G® and Liqui-Lea®.

The best information we’ve found on using Basic-H in the garden has come from MaryAnn and
Mike Mizicko of Vienna, Ohio. Mike is a very successful truck farmer – and Basic-H is his secret!

Be careful to note special circumstances, such as whether to spray on foliage, to apply only to the soil around plants, avoid spraying on blooming trees or plants, and other restrictions. Basic-H is a surfactant, not a fertilizer, so don’t use one concentration for all uses, or you will kill the plants you love.

Soil Preparation

For new vegetable or flower beds, and new lawn areas Mix 1 pint Basic-H to 3 gallons water for
an area of 1,000 sq. ft. (20 feet x 50 feet). Wet down with sprinkler or till in immediately.
Using a hose applicator, set the dial to 7 Tablespoons to 1 gallon water.

Lawns

For growing lawns in the spring and fall, using a spray applicator, set the dial to 7 Tablespoons
per gallon. If using an Ortho sprayer, fill the bottle with 2 Tablespoons Basic-H and water, and
spray evenly over the lawn. Repeat until the entire lawn is treated.

Transplanting

For transplanting flowers, vegetables, trees, shrubs Mix 1 oz. Basic-H to 1 gallon water. You
may also add 2-3 teaspoons Liqui-Lea. Add a small amount to the hole before planting.

Seed Planting

Before planting seeds (If you don’t use this recipe, then you will need to use the one below).
Coat hard seeds with Basic-H full strength; when planting, just add water to the seed furrow.
When planting seeds (If you used the recipe above, you don’t need to do this.) Mix 1 oz. Basic-
H to 1 gallon water; pour this mixture into the seed furrow before placing seeds. You may also
add 2-3 teaspoons Liqui-Lea.

Plant Feeding
For house plants Mix 4 drops (a little less than 1/8 teaspoon) Basic-H to 16 oz. water. You may
also add 1 teaspoon Liqui-Lea. Mix 4 drops (a little less than 1/8 teaspoon) Basic-H to 1 quart water. Water plants every other week.
Mist plants with a mixture of 2 drops Basic-H to 16 oz. water.

For outdoor plants (foliar feeding) Mix 1 oz. Basic-H and 1 Tablespoon Liqui-Lea® to 4 gallons
water. Spray every 7-9 days; apply in the evening or on dark days.

For tomatoes Mix 10-12 drops (not quite ¼ teaspoon) to 16 oz. water. Apply to ground around
the plant, not directly on the plant.

For small trees and shrubs Mix 1 teaspoon Basic-H to 1 gallon water; apply with watering can or hose applicator.

For evergreen shrubs Mix 1 teaspoon Basic-H and 1 teaspoon Liqui-Lea to 1 gallon water.
For trees, fruit trees Mark or trench an area about 1/3 distance from the trunk to the drip line.
Pour 1 quart Basic-H into the soil; let the hose run for 30 minutes.

Insect Spray
G/H Concentrate - Make a concentrated mixture of 1 part Basic-G and 3 parts Basic-H.
NOTE: Not all of the following recipes use this mixture. Do not to use this for every insect problem.

For tender plants Mix 1 oz. Basic-H to 5 gallons water. Do not spray when plants are in full
bloom.

For vegetables (NOT tomatoes) Mix 1 oz. G/H concentrate to 3 gallons water.

For tomatoes (for thrips, fleahoppers, etc.) Mix 1 teaspoon Basic-H to 1 gallon water.

For gardens and flowers Use 1 oz. G/H concentrate to 2.5 - 5 gallons water; plant size and
maturity determine strength. Do not spray when plants are in full bloom.

For roses Mix 1 teaspoon Basic-H to 1 gallon water. Spray rose bushes to protect them from
spiders and other diseases and insects.

For lawn grubs Mix 1-1/2 pints Basic-H and 4 oz. Basic-G to 5-6 gallons water. Spray every
100 feet with an Ortho bottle or use an injector.

For shrubs and trees (bagworms, web worms, etc.) Mix 1 Tablespoon G/H concentrate to 1
gallon water. Spray every 7-9 days until blossom – do not spray when trees are in full bloom.

After bloom, mix 1 Tablespoon Basic-H to 1 gallon water, spray every 3 - 4 weeks.

For picnic areas Mix 1 oz. G/H concentrate to 1 gallon water. Spray one hour before picnic.
For problem insects (squash bugs, bag worms, fleas, ticks, etc.) Mix 1 oz. G/H concentrate to 1
gallon water; spray lawns, trees, dog houses, kennels runs, etc.

The Gardener’s Friend

The Invisible Glove Rub Basic-H full strength on your hands, and allow to dry. You can work
without gloves, and when the task is done, rinse all the grime away under the spigot. Basic-H
will coat your skin, and won’t come off until you add water.

Insect repellant Rub Basic-H full strength on your arms, ears, neck, anywhere (avoid eyes). If
you use Shaklee Sunblock SPF 30, apply the Basic H on top.

HAPPY GARDENING !

Please note: There are two different kinds of Basic-H – there is the Classic Basic-H which I prefer, which comes in 5 gallon & 30 gallon sizes. The amounts used in these recipes are for the Classic Basic-H and is best for the plants.
The second type of Basic-H is Basic-H2, which comes in both 16 oz. and 64 oz. This formula is twice the concentrate of the Classic Basic-H, so be sure that if you are using Basic-H2 that you cut all dilutions in half!

Please follow directions carefully. When in doubt, less is best.

10 Year Old Skin Problem Clears Up in 7 Months!

A story by Barbara Mulin

When I was 13 years old, my face started breaking out. My sisters had peaches and cream complexions.

My mom felt badly for me, so she started taking me to dermatologists.
Within a 10 year span, I went to 14 different doctors.

Each doctor had his own solution; and all of them included some type of antibiotic. I had salves (that burned), shots in my arm and cortisone shots in my face, dry ice therapy, sun lamp treatments, etc.

Each time my skin would clear up, but then after stopping the treatments, my skin would break out again and get worse. My few pimples turned into acne and I was eventually referred to the head of dermatology at Johns Hopkins. There, they put me on 6 tetracycline tablets a day for 2 years.

Can you imagine taking antibiotics for 2 years – and at such high levels?

I moved to New York when I was 23 years old. One day at my new job, my mom called to say she had made an appointment for me with the head of Columbia Hospital. I started crying and said that I was done. I couldn’t take the ups and downs, the disappointments anymore – I would rather have the acne!

When I got off the phone, Helen, one of the secretaries in the office heard me on the phone. She said, “I have something that will clear up your skin for good. It may take a year, but it will get to the root of the problem.”

She was a beautiful woman – beautiful hair and skin, but she was always taking pills and I thought she must be sick!

There was something so genuine and caring about what she said and how she said it that I was willing to give it a try.

She was very honest and said that my skin might get worse before it could get better because of all the medications I had taken. That it all had to come out so I could get better. And, that made sense to me.

Well, the products she was talking about were Shaklee. I took ONLY 3 products – Energizing Soy Protein, Vita-Lea and Herb-Lax.

At first my skin did start breaking out – but at the same time a lot of other things started happening.

I started sleeping better, my PMS symptoms went away, the skin around my eyes started looking healthier – no more circles, and I had more energy. I started experiencing a feeling of well being that I had NEVER experienced before.

Well, true to Helen’s word, my skin was clear within 7 months.

Helpful Tip: What I Use to Clean My Oven & Grill

I hate cleaning the oven and the grill, but at least when I finally break down and do it, I have a scouring paste that works so well, is safe to use and it won’t pollute the environment. It works so well I always end up wondering why I put it off.
Here’s what I use – Scour Off
It’s a paste, so it doesn’t form dust clouds.
It cleans stuck-on messes.
It even cleans burnt-on food in your oven.
And it doesn’t burn your nose hairs off in the process.
Here are some of the benefits:
·         Natural ingredients remove the toughest dried-on splatters and spills, burned-on grease, baked-on food, and sticky messes without hazardous chemicals or toxic fumes.
·         Scour Off is made from natural mineral abrasives and biodegradable cleaning agents. It does not contain chlorine, bleach, or dye.
·         Scour Off gently removes stains other cleansers can't and is great for cleaning tubs, ovens, sinks, and tiles.
·         It will even remove rust, and is great for cleaning these surfaces: copper, grout, cement, ceramic, and imitation marble.
·         Wide-mouth jar makes it easy to use.

Did you know?

Some scouring cleansers, tub, tile, and sink cleaners may contain chlorine releasing compounds and may contribute to the formation of organochlorines, a dangerous class of compounds that can cause reproductive, endocrine, and immune system disorders.

Some may also contain phosphoric acid, which is corrosive in high concentrations and is an eye, skin, and respiratory irritant.

Scour Off does not contain these hazardous ingredients.
Clean Credentials
·         Nontoxic
·         Natural abrasives
·         No harsh chemicals
·         Biodegradable surfactants
·         No phosphates

Surfaces to Avoid
Do not use Scour Off to clean glass, mirrors, stainless steel, marble, silver, brass, aluminum, acrylic, pewter, colorized aluminum, formica, inside the toilet tank, and any other brushed, mirror-like, shiny, or soft finishes. If unsure, test in a small inconspicuous area first.

Here are just some of the ways I use Scour-Off in my home:
·         As an oven cleaner – I use it with a non scratch pad and a little water – an amazing cleaner.
·         Stains on the counter top – lifts them right up.
·         The grill – just like the oven cleaner, it cleans the grill and the grates amazingly fast and rinses easily.
·         Surface rust – Some Scour Off and a little steel wool works better and safer than a SOS pad.

A Great Cancer Story


By Barbara W.

In October, 2006, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I had 2 lumpectomies, went through chemotherapy, herceptin, radiation and I had a partial hysterectomy.

When I finished chemo, I restarted Shaklee’s NutriFeron, Vita- Lea, Osteomatrix, and Sustained Release Vita-C .... PLUS 6 months prior to my last check up I started on VIVIX.

My physician, who is the Head Surgical Oncologist in the Breast department at Moffitt Cancer Center, in Tampa, Florida, said my blood work and exam were excellent!

I asked if they were any closer to a cure for breast cancer. The doctor said “No”, but that a substance has been found to treat the individualized expression of breast cancer, for non-hormonal breast cancer. They feel it will prevent the re-occurrence of breast cancer and prostate cancer.

Moffitt has just put in for a one-million dollar grant for a clinical trial of this substance. When I asked “What is the substance?” the doctor said it was RESVERATROL.

I said I have been taking Shaklee’s Vivix (Resveratrol) for 6 months. The doctor looked surprised, and said “You’re the first person that we have ever seen that had such great results with Resveratrol. I will request for you be a patient advocate during the testing”.

If the grant is approved I would be thrilled that I will be helping the Susan B. Komen Foundation in this study.

Taking Vivix, NutriFeron and the other supplements takes the edge off my cancer fears, knowing that they may prevent the re-occurrence of cancer.
