Holy
jungle

We want to feel cherished by nature, at ease in our own private jungle. To be one with the earth, going back to her peaceful womb, enjoying a brief moment of eternal bliss_______.

Sacred garden

We’re longing for luxury indoor gardens, grown like sacred green sanctuaries, providing a safe haven for our stressed body and mind. A place to find inner peace. Where we can be at ease with ourselves and our luscious surroundings. To pray or meditate, caressed by a soft blanket of leaves and a warm beam of sunlight. Our private, loving indoor garden filled with plants. To relax and feel safe in, where we can bond with nature. Like a green shelter to turn to when things get rough. Finding some guidance amongst our foliage friends and their soothing silence. Thinking about all that’s given to us. All our blessings beneath the struggles. So we can be grateful again for all that’s beautiful and loving in our lives.

WE ARE HELPING NATURE’S BELOVED PLANTS GROW, WHILE SHE IS CARRYING AND SUPPORTING US_______.

Spiritual green

Surrounded by huge plants and protective leaves you feel the tension floating, making space for a warm inner glow. In our own holy jungle we can forget about the world and its chaotic presence. In this private place filled with plants we dare to be vulnerable and humble, while nature is immense loving, patient and strong. Spending some precious time alone, we can have a heart-to-heart with our beloved monstera, palmtree or ficus, because they are really good listeners. Reconnecting with the source of it all; nature, and re-energize.

Botanic shrine

With plants acting like green veils, tapestry and carpets, nature is fiercely reclaiming our environment. Like a mother calling for her child. As if nature is saying: ‘You’ve played enough now, mommy ‘s taking over. Let’s clean up the mess you’ve made. Together.’ We are not fighting nature any longer, but supporting her. We are helping her beloved plants grow, while she is carrying us. Her plants are giving us strength. We are turning to the holy chicas plant to find the comfort and courage to move on. Finding answers in natures’ everlasting wisdom. Together we can move mountains. So fill your home to the brim with caring plants; create a safe haven for your friends and families to comfort your wandering souls, and join us on this green crusade_______.
