Forest Bathing: To Forest Bathe or Not to Forest Bathe…

Forest Bathing

Compared to sunbathing, Forest-bathing is the new kid on the block.  It’s already gaining a lot of traction in the UK, as a therapeutic tool.

But we’re in danger of missing the point.  Whilst it’s being sold as a relaxing mindfulness exercise, really it’s a straight-up case of biological survival.

I’ll tell you why…it’s improving your immune system in response to the essential oils (phytoncides) pumped out by the trees.
