Gardens have long been associated with concepts of spirituality and philosophy. From the Garden of Eden to the Zen gardens built in the early days of Buddhism, these naturally scented and highly meditative spaces link their visitors to the divine. Traditionally, gardens are said to represent the soul and innocence because of their enclosed nature. There are used to create peace between people and they also represent happiness, purity and salvation. The scent of healing is an aromatic expression of new beginnings.
