Forest bathing is the practice of taking a leisurely visit to a forest for health benefits by breathing in the compounds released by the trees and plants. The practice originated in Japan, where it is called shinrin-yoku. It is claimed to benefit physical as well as mental health, as it helps lower heart rate and blood pressure, reduce stress hormone production, boost immunity and mood, and improve overall feelings of well-being.
The same essential constituents released by the trees are mimicked in this coniferous blend of plant oils.
