The essence

Nasturtium is for those who have forgotten how to laugh. Some people live so much in their head that all spontaneity is lost. The essence serves men of reason, who only appreciate ratio, logic and analysis. It teaches them the value of learning to know their own feelings. Nasturtiums brings back the humor in life, the exuberance, joy and love of life. It whets the appetite for new experiences, the desire to enter the unknown and the thrill to enter uncharted territories.


In this way, it brings back the color to the pale face of the couch potato, who surely is a good scholar, but lacks the fun of life, that can bring you true wisdom.
