Nature has a powerful healing quality,
not only through the beauty of its creations
but also through the energy of the smells that pervade the natural environment,
especially the scent of flowers and trees.
These fragrances are nature’s gift to us,
conveyed through the air and presented freely to us as a precious treasure.
Flowers communicate an immediacy of life and vitality
that uplifts and refreshes.
They awaken appreciation and make us feel good.
So it is important for our well being
to refresh our living and work areas from time to time
with fresh flowers, incense, and other pleasant fragrances.
