She Loves a Branch!

Finding and creating beauty is essential right now — so I am excited to take you through the process of making your shower a verdant and fragrant utopia. I have come to be known for my love of branches.  It occurred to me that our self care rituals also deserve some beauty so why not place a seasonal verdant and sculptural clipping directly in our shower?

Everything comes alive again in spring — not only our spirits but also fragrant blooms begin to bud and then burst open.  The floral scent of lilacs is an absolute favorite at this time of year. 

I am fortunate to have a lilac tree in my yard so I clipped a few branches to appreciate the natural perfumy scent as my shower steams.  If you can get your hands on some eucalyptus, it offers amazing therapeutic benefits.

While I love how the fragrance of cut lilacs quickly permeates a room, any verdant branch, big or small, fragrant or not, can elevate the beauty in your bathroom. Aromatherapy has a centuries-long history as a form of healing. Lilac is said to provide a calming effect that eases anxiety, centers the mind, and encourages relaxation. 

I also want to be practical with regard to longevity…..

A dried branch can also evoke beauty and impart a sculptural quality. Overall, I find that bringing a touch of nature indoors elevates the spirit. Can be a dried branch or eucalyptus.  Even a succulent or small Aloe plant actually helps oxygenate the air. 

I hope this inspires you to appreciate the sacred space that is your shower!
