Announcing Matilija Nursery's new chocolate daisy aroma therapy….These daisies give off an intense chocolate fragrance and is you inhale the fragrance for at least 3 hrs per week all kinds of magical things will happen- you'll be overcome with an intense feeling of tranquility- your cravings for sweets/chocolate will be gone thus eliminating a source of aggression….I do this every day and my wife has said it makes a big difference in my attitude (how my attitude could have been improved I don't really know but she says it's been helpful.) Take a look at these shots from my garden and Calif. Lutheran Univ. in Thousand Oaks. This is such a visionary and path breaking discovery that I'm considering "franchising" to help spread the word.
