Wood gives a feeling of being connected with the world around and also to improve physical and emotional health. Why do we use responsibly sourced wood in our jewelry? Responsibly sourced wood is the only renewable building material available; it is naturally grown and removes CO2 from the atmosphere. Wood products then store the carbon that the growing trees have removed from the air (about 50% of the dry weight of wood is carbon).The production and processing of wood less embodied energy than most other materials, giving wood products a significantly lower carbon footprint. Symbolically, wood has a strong connection with the nature and different tree species have their own sacred energy and metaphysical properties. Their energetic potential may help a person to deal with stress.
