Did You Know?

Plants That Humans Like but Bugs Don’t:

Marigolds repel mosquitoes, squash bugs, and tomato worms. They contain a natural compound used in many insect repellents. Lavender is attractive to bees but not to other insects. Lemongrass also repels mosquitoes – it contains citronella, which is used in many repellents. Basil and Rosemary drive away flies, mosquitoes, and cabbage moths. Petunias have a licorice-like scent that repels aphids, tomato hornworms, and squash bugs, although some pests such as slugs and caterpillars like it. Mint keeps ants and mice away.


Homemade Weed Killer:

Mix one gallon of white vinegar, one cup of table salt, and one tablespoon of liquid dish-washing soak. Place in a clean plastic jug and shake well.  Spray directly on the weed on a sunny day. Sunlight boosts the vinegar effectiveness which dries out the weed’s plant cells. Repeat application often as necessary. Make sure you don’t spray this mixture on valued plants nearby.


Make Fresh- Cut Flowers Last Longer:

Combine a few drops of bleach or clear liquor such as vodka or gin, with a crushed vitamin C tablet and a few drops of clear soda or superfine sugar. The bleach or liquor fights bacterial growth, the soda or sugar provides nourishment, and the vitamin C lowers the pH so that the water can move up the stems faster, preventing wilting.

Inspirational Quotes

“The greatest gift we can give ourselves is to own our own happiness. The greatest freedom we can give to others is to let them have their own experience.” ~Jesse Elder 

“Change from being a worrier into a Warrior…Become your own best friend for personal growth, and for humanity.” 

“Sometimes the greatest gift we can give others is to simply remind them of what is possible when they take a chance on themselves.”

“It’s not what you leave to your children that make you great, it’s what you leave in them. Then they can make their own way in life.”


“My experience with MIOH has been extremely pleasant, challenging, and eye-opening. Marla and all of the teachers have so much to offer by way of experience and knowledge. I feel so grateful that I chose MIOH to broaden my understanding of Hypnotherapy and begin learning other modalities such as NLP and Energy Psychology. I love the diverse curriculum. It allows you to reflect deeply on yourself before beginning a practice where you will ask others to do the same, which was paramount for me.” 

“The internship was challenging. It was intimidating and nerve wracking for the first few sessions; then there was a shift in me. I became more and more confident. Sessions became more fluid and seamless. The internship solidifies the curriculum and allows for deep integration on many levels.” ~Meredith R.

Letter from the Executive Director

Hi Everyone,

Why worry about looking the part when you can be the whole package?  ~Gerald

Now that we’re entering into the second half of 2017, I thought I’d ask you these questions to ponder and really think about your answers:

· What would you do differently if you knew no one would be judging you? 

· What’s something that no one can ever take from you? 

· What’s the most valuable life lesson you learned from a mistake? 

· What impact / gifts do you want to leave on the people you love? 

· What’s something simple that makes you smile? 

· What’s something that used to scare you but no longer does? 

· What do you have total confidence in? 

· What do you want to remember forever? 

· In one sentence – who are you?

Remember to always be your authentic self, appreciate who you are…as everyone else is already taken.


Have a great July 4th.

To Your Success,

Marla Brucker, DCH, R.HA
