Water and its memory

For any form of life, water is of fundamental importance and plays an important role of chemical and biological processes.

Biophysical aspects of water applications

Water is not a simple liquid - it has strong polar hydrogen bonds, which are responsible for anomalies in the physical and chemical properties. For its Dipole characters, water represents an ideal medium for differentiated recording of information.

Big Bad Corn

Our frends at learnstuff.com asked us if we want to share their infographic with our customers, we gladly accepted. Here's the great graphic.

"If you’ve ever creeped your way through a corn maze at Halloween, you know how it can grab ahold of your imagination, turning benign stalks into monsters and discarded cobs into severed limbs. It’s just a trick of the light–but take a look at the ways that the U.S. uses corn, and you’ll see that a holiday thrill isn’t the scariest thing about this product. It was first subsidized in the late ‘70s as a fossil fuel alternative, but it’s turned out to be inefficient source of fuel.

At the Beekeeper

Meet Alfred, beekeeper in Henndorf (translated Chicken Village). Alfred has been beekeeping most of his life. While some people enjoy helping animals or working in a zoo, Alfred loves his bees. Check out a short introduction as we go behind the scenes to see what it takes to harvest honey. In the video we're surrounded by many bees with no protection or beekeeper suit. A drop of clove was given to us to spread the scent from our upper body to the side of our neck. It turns out, bees do not like the scent of clove and will not land on us. Each hive has an estimate of 30,000 - 50,000 bees. In this bee hut, there are twelve hives. You can imagine how many bees are surrounding us and we came out with absolutely not one sting. How amazing!

Difference between Salts

Difference between Salts

The difference between Table Salt, Cooking salt, and Rock Salt.

We just started carrying Rock Salt for our customers who are interested and also for conscious eaters like myself and Thomas. We have been using rock salt for a couples years now. If you are pondering what the taste is, well, it taste like salt.

There is no difference in taste other than if your salt is marinated. Like our teas, the salt is coming from our farmer who is located in the same Flachgau region in Austria. GMO is not allowed in Austria as this is a very important factor.

The herbs used in our Herb Salt are organic and grown by the moon.
