A forest bathing trip involves visiting a forest for relaxation and recreation while breathing in phytoncides, or wood essential oils, which are antimicrobial volatile organic compounds derived from trees, such as α-Pinene and limonene. This lab workshop will focus on observing and heightening awareness of textures and patterns observed at Ruffner and learning how to create beautiful nature sculptures using found materials. Support well-being through sensory immersion in the forest. Shinrin-yoku is a recognized relaxation and/or stress management activity in Japan
