Nature puts the mind at ease; its fresh, its soothing, and it clears the head. Having some type of natural element indoors is a great solution for overcoming stress and negativity in any environment. Let’s take a look at the many different benefits it brings to us:

 

Nature Heals

  • Reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, but contributes to your physical well-being, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones. It may also reduce mortality.

Nature Soothes

  • It helps us cope with pain by distracts us from discomfort.
  • Studying patients who underwent gallbladder surgery; half had a view of trees and half had a view of a wall. Half with the view of trees tolerated the pain better, appeared to have fewer negative effects, and spent less time in hospital.

Nature Restores

  • Increases attention-span; humans find nature inherently interesting, we can naturally focus on what we are experiencing out in nature. This also provides a respite for our overactive minds, refreshing us for new tasks.

Nature Connects

  • Time spent in nature connects us to each other and the larger world.

 

Bringing nature indoors is a great way to increase each of these factors and create a positive atmosphere. With our Panespol Natural Moss product, you can achieve this in any space desired. Whether it be your employees, your clients, or even your friends and family – help create a positive and happy environment with a beautiful touch of fresh nature inside your office, store, restaurant and any other room.

 

This type of natural moss is a reindeer moss; a beautiful pale green lichen that forms large mats over the ground in boreal and arctic regions around the circumpolar north. It grows on the surface of bare soil or gravel in the captivating wild nature of northern forests. This lichen cannot be cultivated in any form.

The beauty of reindeer moss lies in its intricate structure and round-shaped upper surface. Each sprig of moss is unique; you will not find two that are alike.

This beautiful product comes in 19 different colors as seen below.
