Bhaga – (from other Ind. “good,” “happiness”) your collection of edible plant seeds to restore harmony. Today, during high speeds of life, constant growth of asphalt and anxiety, it is so important not to lose yourself. Meditation is a wonderful tool that returns to substance. So why not combine it with cultivation and create a harmonious windowsill?

For many, home gardening and gardening have long been a kind of meditation. As you know, it cannot without such simple elements as – wise (a certain position of the fingers of the hands), mantra (sacred sound that affects the psychoemotional part of a person), and also color if we want to improve our particular center/sphere. Yeah, otherwise it’s called a chakra. There are seven of them, and they are distinguished by color, sound, wise, meaning, influence, and so on.

Each vegetable, grass or their complex will affect different centers. This is where the packaging solution is built. The design itself is simple – a closed envelope with tear-off strips from above and from below. Discovering, we will see general information about the chakra on the one hand, and a brief one about planting and caring for the plant on the other. Seeds are “hidden” in paper tape, which is very convenient to plant. It is attached to the package on a safe glue, over which it is slightly fixed with a sticker with a vegetable/grass/berry icon and its name. This nice bonus will conveniently be used to mark your pots.
