First, you need to plant the seed in soil. You need to add water and light. Wait a few weeks or months, and eventually the seed will have germinated into a lovely flower.
Facts about plants (photosynthesis):
- The leaves are green due to the chlorophyll and the leaves absorb light for photosynthesis.
- The first stage of photosynthesis captures energy from the sun to break down water molecules.
- It takes six molecules of water and six molecules of carbon dioxide to make one molecule of glucose during photosynthesis.
- The leaves change colour during the autumn because of the reduced photosynthesis.
- The opposite of photosynthesis is cellular respiration. The process of using energy stored in sugars.
The bottom is an Asiatic Lily that I have placed in my living room. As you can see two bloomed last night, and they are beautiful.
The top photos is an overview of only a small Southerly part of my town. I love to walk up to the heights and get the full panoramic view of everything, especially on such a lovely day.
A blooming mesmerise,
bees delight hidden inside,
withered into autumn,
cradle winter night,
the flower blooms,
not matter what the time.
I am not the type of person who will swear on aromatherapy as a cure all, or the type of individual to swear by essential oils as being the best kind of “better medicine”…
But, general relaxation and peace and quiet of the mind, and maybe some spiritual connection to the divine or even prayer aid, yoga aid, Pilates aid, boxing aid…you name it…I will back up aromatherapy.
So, what is this “therapy you speaketh of?”
According to Wikipedia: “Aromatherapy is based on the usage of aromatic materials, including essential oils, and other aroma compounds, with claims for improving psychological or physical well-being. It is offered as a complementary therapy or as a form of alternative medicine, the first meaning alongside standard treatments, the second instead of conventional, evidence-based treatments.”
My recommendation is this: If you want to explore alternative then this is the place to start your alternative medicine journey. I would say go out and buy a good quality diffuser and some essential oils.
Good beginner oils are Lavender. It is apparently one of the safest to use, being able to apply directly to the skin and even add to the bath. Diffusing lavender essential oil essentially…lol…evapourates the oil and water into a steam to be inhaled. 2 or 3 drops are a good starting point.
Lavender is touted as an anxiety, depression, stress and insomnia aid. “When inhaled, the olfactory bulb can induce emotion and memory. It’s hypothesized that the smell-triggered memory associated with stress can be turned into positive mood and emotions by using certain oils, like lavender.”
A good choice to treat migraine. One small study from European Neurology found participants who inhaled lavender had a reduction in the severity of their pain in just 15 minutes.
Many love and wishes to you all. Enjoy your day and have a happy and fruitful week. May God bless every single one of you, x.
