An uplifting plant for your well-being toolkit!

Making up some pots filled with Hens and Chicks to share with others, I  placed them in my Feldenkrais® Treatment Room until needed.  I put three pots on the windowsill and left.  When returning to the room it had a completely different feel to it. These little plants uplifted the whole space!   I was pleasantly surprised.

With them in the window while working with clients I felt a deeper sense of balance and pleasure.  As the original pots were gifted and they disappeared there was an immediate void in the space.  I will have to be aware of this as these new ones are shared with others and they leave their perch.

Hens and Chicks are wonderful plants to have in your health and well-being kit.  I am encouraging others to have a pot in their bathrooms and by their kitchen sink.  These little guys have similar qualities to aloe vera except they are easier to manage. Rather than breaking a tip off of an aloe vera,  you can simply take a small leaf out of the rosette!

This leaves can be eaten, juiced, crushed for facials and smelled to stop a nose bleed!  The juice can be rubbed on scraps, burns and bites. There are many more used too!  Read more

Begin your own little pot of these enjoyable plants and watch them multiply!

In an earlier Hens and Chicks  blog post I recommended that they be placed in the Helpful People area of the Bagua, however, these three on the window sill are placed in the Creative/Adventure portion of the Bagua.  The pots are metal and round and reflect the metal element for this particular position on the Bagua. Metal and the round shape reflect a zen like quality.  Little metal zen pots with wood, fire and earth aspects.  Wood is the plant itself. Earth is the soil and the red tips and shape of the leaves reflect the fire element! Read more
