Humic shale can also be ground into a fine plant flour and soaked for three to four weeks in filtered spring water until it reaches a specific gravity of 3.0, it then provides a high quality plant derived colloidal mineral supplement that contains 38,000 milligrams of plant derived minerals per liter. This product is a potent nutritional supplement that is the basis for many of Youngevity's multimineral and multivitamin products that are up to 98% absorbable.
This would be analogous to Olive Oil production, the first pressing of Olive Oil is the "extra virgin" quality is what would go to human nutritional supplementation products.
The leaching process is repeated and the "second pressing" is still full of organically bound plant derived minerals. This batch is not filtered as finely as the "extra virgin" first round, so it has all the minerals PLUS 6% Humic Acid. The resulting liquid product is a superior humate soil conditioner and plant food containing up to 76 organically-bound (plant derived) earth elements (minerals).
Liquid Bloomin Minerals are excellent for foliar applications for fruits, vegetables, house plants, and grasses.
Mix a ratio of 1:120 (1 oz. Bloomin Minerals to 120 oz of water) and foliar feed front and backs of leaves, buds and fruits with a sprayer, boom or other applicator.
TIME AND FREQUENCY OF FOLIAR APPLICATIONS:
It is important to foliar feed grasses, grains, fruit trees or vegetable plants when growing stage is:
1st: Immediatelyafter germination for grains and vegetables and new leaf growth for fruit trees.
2nd: Just before flowering for vegetables and just before fruit appears on fruit trees.
3rd: Just before change of color of grains, fruits and vegetables.
For crops with multiple harvest times (i.e. tomato, cucumber, eggplant, etc..) the ideal frequency is every 15 days (twice a month), although some farmers use every 10 days for even better results.
For hay crops, apply 3 to 4 times per year. First 4" to 6" growth after cutting.
