What specifically are you attempting to root?
I find that many plants, shrubs, and trees will root without using anything more than soil... although, many do have a specific season where they are more receptive to being stuck.

One more natural method that I've heard of.... Is using a grain like wheat... No reason why rice or something similar wouldn't also work... The sprouting grain releases hormones that encourage root development on the plant that you are attempting to propagate.

I've never heard to using grain. Hmmm. But then you don't you need to remove the sprouted stuff you don't want?

I've used commercial rooting hormone found in any garden section of stores. I was told it does need to be fresh. So check for a production or expiration date when you buy it. And then if you need to use it later I was told to use it within a year.

I too have found that most things will just root on their own in soil. I never saw a big impact with rooting hormone. But then again I was rooting cuttings of things notoriously easy like coleus, chrysanthemums.

Don't know what is available in your area or which sellers can ship to you but here are two:
Vitax organic rooting powder is made from seaweed and other natural ingredients.
There is also one called Growing Success Organic Rooting Powder (also comes in a gel formula).
