Packaging design aimed at targeting busy working professionals was created to provide convenience and balance while ensuring there is no effect on the environment (packaging is biodegradable and dissolvable). The packaging consists of 14 small transportable packages that fit inside a larger box. The idea is that the dissolvable plant medicine sachets which are housed in the transportable packages can be easily packed in and taken on the go. The box uses structure as well as colour therapy to guide the patient through their two-week course. Cool colors are used at the beginning of the week to promote a calming effect whereas warmer colors are used at the end of the week to energize and excite.

What’s Unique?
The packaging design is a new way of packaging medicine. Specifically the use of dissolvable material to ensure there is no impact on the environment.
