It is already some years ago, as
an acquaintance (Heinz Krantzen from Kamp Lintfort) gave me the unusual
tip concerning the “Valerian bloom excerpt”.
Here is his former statement,
“Concerning the “Valerian bloom excerpt” I want
to mention that I had read somewhere about the killing of fungi (each
fungus as I could read).
However, I don’t know anymore, where it was written,
possibly in the book “Freilandsukkulenten” by Fritz Koehlein, which I
had lent some months ago in the public library. I do not want to commit
myself however here.
You can buy “Valerian excerpt” in the pharmacy, but
it is not “Valerian bloom excerpt”.
In addition it contains more than 50% alcohol and is
not suitable for gardening purposes.
“Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) bloom excerpt” is
a pure natural product. You can produce it by Yourselves, if You have the
plants or can find them in the nature (in the outer meadows).
I sowed it myself years ago. You only need to sow it
once, because Valerian sprouts like weeds, is perennial or even durable
and sows itself automatically as much that You have to intervene, to keep
it under control.
“Valerian bloom excerpt” is syrupy, dark-brown,
and, filled in bottles, locked well and kept cool (at about 12°C), even
the selfmade is durable for many years.
This fact is indication of the quality of this plant
juice. The only additive is a little fresh, clean rain water.
... the “Valerian bloom excerpt” is versatile usable.
In the spring it is yielded on the soil in fine doses (similarly
as in Homooepathie: ` smallest dosage / largest effect) - to activate the
organisms in the soil.
In the natural compost production it is similar:
Different herb drugs are brought with valerian as an activator into the
prepared compost heap.
To incitate the bloom-production it is yielded on the
plants of different arable crops, however not on kinds of salad, root
vegetable, carrots etc. because these plants otherwise have the tendency
to grow to fast.
It is also used as freeze protection, e.g. with the
strawberry bloom, with berrybushes etc..... “
In the little newspaper “Wincke” of the Abbey Fulda
experiences by plant lovers are presented, who confirm the addressed
I manufacture my excerpt as follows:
In June/July, during the main blooming-time of the
valerian, I collect the fully opened flower-umbels.
The appearance of the valerian is characterized by the
pink bud, which changes its color gradually into pure white.
Also the leaves are noticeable because of
their reciprocal, somewhat falcate form. Their edges are serrated
and strongly green colored.
The persistent bush reaches, depending on the location,
a height of about 1 m to 1,8m and grows in meadows and on the border of
forests and roads.
I remove the roughest stalks
the collected blooms (that’s the way, I do it, even if it takes a little
more time), put the blooms in plastic bags and freeze them for further use.
Because of the freezing the cell membranes burst and so the blooms can
better juiced out.
After the thawing the blooms are given into a mixer and
mixed well by adding some clean rainwater or distilled water if necessary.
The mash is pressed through a clean towel.
This juice (the actual excerpt) is filled into jam
glasses and up to consumption kept coolly and darkly.
After some time sediments set off on the ground of the
glasses, which are not depreciating at all.
ust shake the glasses before use.
As I practice it in my collection: 3,50 Euro per 100 ml).
The first treatment takes place with the first watering
in the year at the beginning of March.
I add 30 - 50 drops to 10 litres of water and giesse
all plants with it.
The second treatment takes place in the subsequent
months, as well as more frequent spraying of the mixture over the plants.
An acquaintance, orchid
collector , Beppo Maierl from Rosenheim,
tested this kind of use and meanwhile he swears on this “magic
means”, just like I do.
Against the clue, usual valerian tincture from the
pharmacy is unsuitable because of the high alcohol concentration, he uses
the means available at Walmart’s or Schlecker’s and being offered for
the human needs, with same success. Besides this it is rather cheap in
these shops (appr.
Because of the fact, that I meanwhile own a rather
large collection, the excerpt is worth being self-produced, as well as
valerian grows in masses in my environment (Chiemgau).
In the summer 2002 I harvested three 10 liter plastic
bags and so I could produce at least two liters of best excerpt, which
comes up to a market value of appr. 500. - Euro, if I compare it with the
at that time still available “Original Valerian Bloom Excerpt of Oscorna”
with costed appr. 24. – DM per 50 ml.
Everybody, who knows my collection, and who saw the
bloom splendour, which I may enjoy each
year, will often shake his head disbelievingly, and will assume, that I
fertilize my plants with a secret superfertilizer.
Nearly nobody believes, that primarily the valerian
causes this bloom splendour.
I would like to pass my experiences here, because it is
simply a gift of nature and does not harm anybody.
I wish such bloom splendour to everybody, and I hope,
that this procedure will receive more attention.
For further questions or problems I am available at any
“Original Valerian Bloom Excerpt” is officially
available again !!
can order the Valerian in my Online-Shop !
The really good !!
Even with comparably good quality it is appr. 3.- Euro
cheaper than the former available excerpt.
