  1. Wonderful idea, concept, and beautifully done. I spend a lot of time outdoors with my grandson, and we pick a leaf or two from a shrub, bush or tree and crumble it between our thumb and pointing finger and breath in the scent of the tree. It can be so exhilarating, and mood changing, connecting with the plants, and knowing them more intimately. The same goes for identifying the leaves of plants and smelling the bark of different trees. My grandmother also used to use a lot of potpourri. We also burn a lot of incents. And use candles to evaporate essential oils into the air. Plants definitely can transform your energy and mood. We know the vast healing capabilities of plants. My favorite practices are looking up to the luminous yellow-green of the uppermost baby leaves of the trees; especially when the sun shines on them, after a rainstorm. And greeting and talking to the trees. Some might say I am crazy but they don’t know the true magic of life.
