Biochemic Tissue Salts
"You can trace every
sickness, every disease And
every ailment to a mineral
deficiency." Dr. Linus
Pauling, winner of two Nobel
Prizes. This statement is not
at all surprising if one looks
at the work done by Dr.
Schuessler on cell salts in
the 1850's. He found that
the ability of the body to
utilise nutritional material is
impaired when there is a
tissue salt deficiency. He
also concluded that if the
body became deficient in
these essential minerals,
the deficiency caused an
abnormal or diseased
condition. To Dr. Schuessler,
a symptom was merely a
distress signal, warning that
a body constituent was
missing And when restored,
the body condition returns to
normal. This safe,
easy-to-use system is a
MUST for all therapists And
those with an interest in this

Painting or Staining Your New Birdhouses
You build birdhouses for housing specific species of birds. The painting of your birdhouses
needs to be in accord with the preferences of those birds. Different birds prefer different
colors. Purple martins prefer white while some others prefer beige colors. Research the color
choices of the species you want to attract to your birdhouses.
Overall, birds find birdhouses with subtle colors more attractive. This is because, in nature,
female birds are of a lighter And duller shade than the males. The dull colors protect the birds
from predators. They can easily mingle into the foliage. So, bright colored birdhouses do not
attract as many inhabitants.
How to Paint Birdhouses
Materials You Need
- Tack cloth (cloth that contains a sticky substance, used for removing dust from a
surface before painting
- Weathered Wood® Crackling Medium Acrylic paint
Sand your birdhouse And remove all sand particles with your tack cloth. Apply primer And,
then, allow it to dry. Apply a coating of slate blue paint.
Next, use square brushes And apply a thick coat of paint. Work in rows. Do not apply paint,
but use short, dabbing strokes to push the paint to the front. Allow all the paint to dry.
Apply an even coating of Weathered Wood Crackling Medium over the base paint And let it
dry for half an hour. This medium separates applied paint And gives a roughened And
crackled look to your birdhouse.
You can use a sponge to bring out finer cracks in the applied paint. You can use foliage colors
on your sponge. Use light or dark green paint And apply with light, jumping strokes. This is
similar to the natural foliage And may help the birds feel more at home.
Sponge brushes are the best for painting birdhouses as they do not hold much paint And
make its application easier.
Use two or three coats of external latex paint on the outside for finishing it. Three coats of
water-based polyurethane provide the finish to your painting. Such finishes are environment
friendly, And it is easy to clean them too. They protect your birdhouse.
Cautions When Painting Your Birdhouse
Do not paint the inside the birdhouse. Birds do not nest in painted houses or houses that
smell of paint or of humans.
Do not use any strong chemicals in your painting like lead or creosote. Birds often peck at
their houses And could ingest some paint in the process. This could be fatal or, at least,
cause serious injury to them. Creosote is a recognized wood preservative, but is toxic for
Similarly, wood in feeders should also not contain any such preservative. Do not paint
feeders in any bright colors nor use high-gloss finishes.
Each species of birds are very choosy about their houses. They will not go anywhere near a
highly decorated birdhouse. Therefore, do not decorate your birdhouse extensively. Give it a
basic, natural look And watch the birds nesting And living in your birdhouse.
Do not paint near the entrance holes, as birds use this hole often for coming in And out of
Do not use dark shades for birdhouses as dark colors absorb And retain heat. You can paint
roosting houses for roosters in dark colors only for winter months.
How to Attract Birds to Birdhouses
Often, you have to wait for some time before birds choose to nest in your birdhouses. Birds
are wary of new objects in their familiar surroundings And do not immediately accept your
You can try to entice them by adding a few birdbaths, feeders with grains And nuts, And
some swings too. Hanging the birdhouse in your backyard garden helps to provide a definite
supply of insects for your birds.
Birdhouses should be durable, waterproof And built for easy accessibility to birds. Wooden
birdhouses have natural insulation properties; cool in summer And warm in winter.
Although you might prefer dark or bright colors for your birdhouses, it is best to stay away
from bright colors. These colors bring the birdhouses to the notice of the many natural
predators of birds. Neutral colors like soft green, brown or tan offer the natural ambiance to
your birdhouses And birds feel more at home.
