The Great Wine Blight

Sometime in the 1850s, the North American root louse phyloxera vastatrix was brought to Europe. And it discovered it really, really liked grape vines. Which is bad, because grapes are used to make wine, and Europeans <strong>love</strong> their wine. Phyloxera vastatrix devastated European rootstocks for decades. The French were the worst affected, and the whole disaster became known as the “Great French Wine Blight.” The French government even offered over 320,000 Francs as a reward to whoever could discover a cure for the blight.

Leo Laliman and Gaston Bazille, two French wine growers, each proposed the same solution: if louse-susceptible European vines were grafted onto the louse-resistant American roots, then the problem might be solved. A Texan named Thomas Munson was consulted. He agreed that yes, this might work, and he provided native Texan rootstock for grafting. With some persuasion all French and all European vines were grafted. In France this is colloquially known as the “Reconstitution.”

Unfortunately, phyloxera vastatrix still poses a threat to any European grape vine which has not been combined with American vines. To this day, almost all European wines come from grafted vines.

There is a bittersweet longing in Aloha ‘Oe (Farewell to...



There is a bittersweet longing in Aloha ‘Oe (Farewell to Thee). It was written by Queen Lili'uokalani of Hawaii in 1877, after seeing the farewell embrace between an American colonel and his Hawaiian girlfriend. Sixteen years later, Queen Lili'uokalani was deposed by American pineapple and sugar magnates, with assistance from the U.S. Navy. She was not a bad ruler. She just had the audacity to push back against the increasing power of the U.S. companies and draft a new constitution which would give more rights to Hawaiians who were, well, from Hawaii. This was unacceptable.

Hawaii became a “republic” controlled by the United States, and then they stopped pretending and just made it a territory. Queen Lili'uokalani never abdicated. She was placed under house arrest for five years, during which time she wrote her autobiography and a songbook’s worth of music in Hawaiian.

A procura de desfazer magia negra, obter proteção contra energias negativas de todo o tipo. Sem dúvidas é um dos temas mais recorrentes, como nesta mensagem que recebemos:


[...]
Eu acendi uma vela azul para Iemanjá e após um dia me fez claro que houve uma pessoa que me fez muito mal a mim, à minha família e a nossas vidas.
Me fez macumba e bruxaria muito forte. Eu não desejo fazer mal a esse cara nem à sua família.
Mas queria eliminar essa macumba e bruxaria de nossa vida e abrir caminhos para a nossa felicidade.
Tem alguma simpatia ou o que eu possa fazer para eliminar isso?
Mais uma vez muito obrigado.
Abraços
[...]


Para desfazer Magia Negra recomendamos um banho para eliminar as energias negativas. Opções que podemos ter para fazer banho de ervas de chá nesta receita indicamos 3 ervas de grande poder agrimônia, bétula e arruda. 
É possível achar todas as ervas em casas de chá. Tanto no Brasil como em Portugal. Quem mora em lugar isolado também pode optar pela internet, deve achar sem dificuldade as ervas em questão. 

Outra opção é preparar o banho de sal Grosso, faça antes de dormir. Dissolva uma pelo menos uma colher de sopa de sal grosso em 2 litros de água, alguns colocam três colhes e outros até mais. Não existe uma regra certa. 

Mas misturando o sal grosso na água, você deve se banhar jogando a água com sal do pescoço para baixo. 

Se desejar, logo em seguida, pode tomar um banho para eliminar o excesso de sal. Já que o banho é mais para uma limpeza das energias negativas, depois de feito, você pode eliminar também o sal do corpo.
