For me there is nothing more calming than sitting by our forest cabin near a little lake in Northern Sweden. I have the impression that there is a magic energy in the woods. As if there would be fairytale creatures around every corner. Sometimes when I sit there in this total silence (except the noises of the woods) I feel like I wouldn`t be surprised if a little "Rumpnisse" (little gnome from the Astrid Lindgren novel Ronja Rövardotter) would come walking towards and starting talking to me.
I spend quiet some time in the woods. Its my safe space, the place where I recover, get energy and heal. I love every little natural detail.
From that place in the woods and from my forest- heart my jewelry- line "Arctic plants" comes from. I wanted to make small amulets of parts of the arctic forest, which we can carry around all year long (or hang them on our wall as posters). A symbol which reminds us of the beauty and healing power of trees and forests. For all people interested even in the scientific researches on the healing effects of forests and trees I warmly recommend the book "The biophilia effect" by Clemens G. Arvay. We live in such a fast moving time, many of us in big cities, so that I feel that it is very important for us to nourish our natural roots and give our souls and bodies the grounding and calming energy they need.
