Why do I need to ‘shake to activate’?
This is to ensure that all solids that may have crystallised out of solution are re-dissolved. The energy in the water that the macro and micronutrients are dissolved in will have slightly lowered as the elixir sits still on a shelf. As a result, some of the ions may have been attracted to each other and formed a crystalline solid. By shaking, you give the water molecules more energy (movement). As water molecules have a slightly polarised charge, they act to pull apart the ions which will have come together to form a crystalline solid. We want these ions to be evenly dispersed in the elixir every time we apply Sowvital Elixir to our plants to ensure consistent, high-performance results.
