Bringing nature inside

It reminded me of how important a role our senses play in creating those special memories. Nature plays such an important part in our lives. Even at home, I try to bring nature into our house with plants, colors and textures. I guess that is why Moss Hill was so easy and such a natural fit for me when it was created in 2001. One of my favorite plants that seemed to cover all the gorgeous valleys and fields out west is the Blue Sage. Just rubbing the sprigs between your fingers releases this intoxicating scent of lemon and sage with a warm earthiness that just makes you want to keep smelling your fingers all day! Maybe next time you’re out roaming around in your yard or in a park, try to get to know a new fragrance. Like we say in Moss Hill ‘Take time to stop and smell the fragrances in life…”
