Life is too short to worry about it
The scientist have done it again. They have discovered how important it is for us to keep in touch with nature, walk in the woods and enjoy the trees. They have also taken the time to isolate wood essential oils emitted from the trees and leaves as one of the main health benefits of being in nature.
We carry many of the tree essential oils in our store, cedar wood, pine, fire and cypress to mention a few. read more here
But really. Do we need to have a scientist to tell us what we already know. Who can not walk through a forest and feel a sense of calm wash over them. Fly fishing is a sport who's participants know that the catch is the prize but the reward is a day spent being in nature and breathing in all those wonderful smells.
Science will need a long time to isolate all the benefits that the natural world brings to humans. In the mean time I hope they can do studies that help protect the green spaces that we still have.
We are Free Spirit Botanicals because we love nature and all it has to offer. Nature is abundant with cures for our diseases and illness. Take some time this summer solstice to enjoy the extra long days, walk in the woods and feel the cool waters wash away the winter stress.
