Workshop on making aroma bags and jars for children of IDPs

It is human nature to smell different odors. The aroma has a wonderful effect on the body: it can awaken pleasant memories, evoke positive emotions and improve mental state. Aromatherapy is an ancient, age-old art of using essential oils, and other aromatic substances to take care of physical and mental health.



Children and their mothers learned how to create an aromatic composition during a workshop held on March 22 at the Museum of Local Lore in Uzhhorod. The children made wonderfully flavored glass jars from food, and the mothers made aroma bags. They combined sea salt of different colors, dried hydrangea, lavender, mint, and essential oils. Participants have already smelled lavender, citrus, and roses scents in the air in a couple of minutes of the work. Great mint tea with cookies perfectly complemented this event.

Ruslana Jahman, a senior researcher in the nature department, was speaking about the impact of waste on the environment, as well as about fauna and flora during the event. The easiest thing each of us can do is not to leave our garbage in nature, to sort and give a second life to waste. With a little imagination, you can get beautiful products for interior decoration.

The event was held within the framework of the project “Responsibility for the Creation and Women of the Carpathians”, was implemented by the Interreligious and Civil Environmental Forum of Eastern Europe (IRCEF) in cooperation with environmental groups of the Churches and with the support of Archdiocese Bamberg and Würzburg (Germany).
