A Forest Bath in a Bottle
The term forest bathing comes to us from Japan.
The idea behind it stems from the theory of Biophilia, which simply states that because humans evolved in nature, we must spend time in it to be complete ourselves.
This no longer radical theory was among the first to speculate that, as humans, we share an intrinsic love of nature. From infanthood we show a – and that nature loves us in return.
The Japanese revisited this theory in recent decades with modern science ready to put this to the test.
For years, the Japanese have had a phrase for spending healing time in nature shinrin-yoku, forest-bathing, the art of opening your senses to nature and bathing in it’s atmosphere.
