New (big) home, new (infinite) corners to capture light! I'm so excited about the recent move and very proud of the colors I choose for the walls. This is the deep, brilliant green of the living room illuminated by the first light of this morning, and these are the lilies I bought at the market next to the house. Complementary colors with the right light are always a success. Enjoy your day!
LAST CHANCE to get your weekend blooms 🌻

Door het wisselvallig weer na de hittegolf en de bomen die hun blaadjes laten vallen, dennenappels op het bospad en het zacht zomerlicht, voel ik mij plots heel herfstig. Zin hebben in woldekentjes en filmkijken met een warme kop pompoensoep. Yep, echt waar 🙊
Maar eigenlijk ben ik helemaal nog niet klaar met zomeren, want ik hou zo van de zomer! Misschien helpt het om wat vakantiefoto’s te kijken met een fris glas homemade ice-tea..⛱
Ben ik dan de enige die al in herfstmodus verkeert? 🍂
Benefits of Melissa Essential Oil
1. May Improve Symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease
Melissa is probably the most studied of the essential oils for its ability to serve as a natural treatment for Alzheimer’s, and it’s very likely one of the most effective. Scientists at Newcastle General Hospital’s Institute for Aging and Health conducted a placebo-controlled trial to determine the value of melissa essential oil for agitation in people with severe dementia, which is a frequent and major management problem, especially for patients with severe cognitive impairment. Seventy-two patients with clinically significant agitation in the context of severe dementia were randomly assigned to the Melissa essential oil or placebo treatment group.
Researchers found that 60 percent of the melissa oil group and 14 percent of the placebo-treated group experienced a 30 percent reduction of agitation scores. There was an overall improvement in agitation in 35 percent of patients receiving melissa oil and 11 percent in those treated with placebo, suggesting that quality of life was improved significantly with essential oil treatment.

However, in 2011, a follow-up study seems to have refuted the evidence and shows that it had no more impact on the patients than medication or placebo. The researchers specifically point out that they blinded more factors in the study and used a more “rigorous design.” (2) The research is conflicting, but it seems melissa oil does potentially do as well as medication can in some instances.

Like I promised you...more flowers! But this time there is more going on! This picture was taken in the mountains near Mayrhofen, Austria. It took me like 15 minutes and 100 shots until I got this result. But it was worth it, wasn’t it?
