The festive season is upon us, and what better way to embrace it than by bringing the beauty and aroma of the forest right into our homes? At Flowerland, we believe in the power of nature to transform spaces and elevate moods. This year, let’s explore the magic of fresh greens – a simple, yet profoundly beautiful way to decorate your home for the holidays.
The Essence of Nature: Phytoncides and Well-being
Did you know that the enchanting scent of evergreens is not just delightful but also beneficial for your health? Plants like Pine, Fir, and Cedar emit phytoncides – essential oils that have been shown to reduce stress and cortisol levels. These natural oils, with their stress-reducing properties, offer a gift of wellness alongside their nostalgic appeal. Imagine your home bathed in these soothing scents, creating a serene and healthful environment for you and your family.
Preparing and Caring for Your Fresh Greens
To ensure your green decorations remain vibrant throughout the season, here are some tips from Flowerland’s experts:
- Before arranging, cut the ends of the branches and let them soak in water. This helps them absorb moisture and stay fresh.
- Consider using an anti-desiccant spray, available at Flowerland, to seal the pores on the leaves and help retain moisture.
- Display your greenery away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Indoors, keep them away from heat vents; outdoors, they can last well beyond New Year’s Day.
