    This video shows what happens when you use ash from a fire in the vegetable garden and around fruit trees.

    Ash helps build the flora immune system.

    Historically wood ash is used to make soap


    You pack all the wood ash into a barrel with holes round the base, and let the rain water off the roof run into the barrel, and collect any liquid that runs out into another barrel. After a winter, you have a Barrel of Lye, or what is in fact sodium hydroxide. Now you chuck the used ash onto the ground and plough it in, as it adds carbon and other organic material to the soil without making it too alkaline.

    Now you put the lye into a copper pot, and boil it, and then pour in all the fat you saved from all the meat you've cooked or eaten over winter. A complex reaction then occurs, with the sodium hydroxide reacting with the copper to form copper (III) hydroxide, and then both hydoxides react with the fat to produce Sodium Stearate complexes, or soap

    You then skim the raw soap off, heat it up and melt it, add natural perfumes like rose or verbena, and cast it into blocks

    And thats how the Victorian farmer made soap.

    The ash is also good for traction on the driveway in the winter.
    Humble yourself, for there is an enormous change coming.

    When we first moved back to PA. the house we bought had a wood-burning furnace in it, so you know what I did during the Spring and Summer. Anyhoo, i would save the ash that the furnace produced and I would spread it on my road so that I was able to get out in the winter to go to work or run errands.

    in my opinion using ash entraps heat from the sun. i dont feel it has any gripping qualities unless its not all burnt. dead seahorses does that, plus adds traction.

    and because hardwood ash can make lye, some of the native Americans used it to nixtimalize corn...making all the nutrients accessible to humans..Some Indians used slaked lime and that gives the corn a special taste. But some used hardwood ash.
