Winter Stations Pop-Up: SMELL - Apothecary Beach Bath

North Shore Apothecary will guide participants in the creation of a “Forest Bath” using botanicals foraged from the shores of Lake Ontario. Forest Bath is the English translation of Shinrin Yoku, the Japanese art of forest therapy or nature therapy. Sustainably harvested and packaged in a reusable mason jar, join us for a workshop focused on slowing down, relaxation and contemplation.

Organization: North Shore Apothecary

North Shore celebrates an often underutilized sense- the sense of smell. Nature provides some of the most wonderful, layered, complicated and downright lovely smells that can transport us back to our childhood, a place of meaning, or to our emotions. We’ve been expressing scent from plants, resins, mushrooms, bark & lichen for centuries dating back to ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt. Odorous plant matter was considered heavenly and was highly revered. Somewhere along the way, synthetic chemicals took the place of handcrafted natural expressions of plants. These synthetics do allow scent to last longer, but can also be riddled with chemicals, hormones, and preservatives. If you’re like me, modern perfumes cause headaches and the odd but oh so wicked migraine. Natural scents are more gentle, and well, natural.
