Homeopathy for Farm and Garden
Homeopathic remedies aren't just being used in people and pet healthcare. Organic farmer's all over the world rely on Agrohomeopathy (a form of homeopathy for farm and garden) to eradicate plant pests as well as botanical diseases. Heavy rain doesn't seem to reduce it's effectiveness either. The repellent properties may last as long as 4 weeks! Some farmers spray the remedy right on the plants (being sure to get the upper and lower sides of the leaves), others water it into the soil below the plants with equally good results. A dose of Helix tosta will have the snails moving along before they can manage to nibble your garden to the ground.
What is Homeopathic Helix Tosta?
It's a homeopathic remedy made from toasted snail shell. Originally this remedy was used by homeopaths to treat respiratory illnesses and tuberculosis, especially if the patient was coughing up blood. Only recently has this remedy found new fame as a snail and slug repellent.
Homemade Snail and Slug Repellent
Step 1. Put 2 pellets/pills of Helix tosta 6c into 1 liter (4 1/2 cups) of distilled or purified water. Succuss this bottle 50 times. That means, strike the bottom of the bottle straight up and down, hitting the bottom of it hard on a padded surface. This liter of the remedy will make many bottles (about 15 liters) of spray or watering solution. Step 2. To make your spray or watering solution put 3 Tablespoons from the remedy bottle you've made into an empty 1 liter bottle, then fill the bottle up with water. This 2nd dilution is what you will use to spray or water the plants. To make additional bottles just repeat Step 2. above. Note: Discard any unused remedy, because it will not remain potent for future applications.
