Playing cards can help take your mind off the stressors of life. You experience “feel-good” endorphins that come from both competing and socializing amongst a group of people. When directing your focus towards a game, it can feel both intense and relaxing. Therefore, playing cards can ultimately help with focus and attention, which is similar to that of aromatherapy.
The use of aromatherapy oils can provide both natural health remedies and therapeutic fragrances. Using medicinal herbs for multi purposes through essential oils is much healthier than using incense, candles, room sprays, etc.
Two of Herbs has created a deck of seeds containing some of the most versatile aromatherapy herbs that you can grow in the convenience of your own home. These seeds come embedded in biodegradable paper and are paired together as two complimenting herbs per card. The package also contains nutrient-rich soil dice which can be planted with the seed paper. By planting the seeds provided, it aims to inspire those to make their own essential oils, if not – simply enjoy the herbs for either cooking or for their fragrance.
The packaging as a whole is constructed with biodegradable materials, making the entire contents plantable.
