Research has long shown that exposure to the natural materials positively impacts human health and well-being, both physical and psychological.

The people who are living in big cities, under constant pressure are eager to be closer to nature in order to stimulate their spirit and mind. But sometimes it can be difficult to take away from daily routine and, for example, go for a picnic in the forest.

Wooden jewelry is the chance not only to feel connected with the world around, but also to improve physical and emotional health.

Why do we use responsibly sourced wood in our jewelry and fine art?

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 uses much less energy – called embodied energy – than most other materials, giving wood products a significantly lower carbon footprint.

Although wooden jewelry is the most ancient form of jewelry, it is still extremely popular due to its powerful natural energy. Symbolically, wood has a strong connection with the nature. Like crystals different tree species have their own sacred energy and metaphysical properties. Their energetic potential may help to deal with stress.

Here are some wood species we using in all of Laser Trees products and their metaphysical qualities:

The Maple tree is a symbol of strength and endurance, and also known as the tree of tolerance. It represents offering, generosity, balance, promise and practicality. Is it associated with the element of Water.

The Birch Tree symbolizes inception, fertility and new beginnings, as it is a pioneering species which quickly grows in bare soil and after fires burn through a forest. It is also thought to have powers of discipline and purification, assisting creativity and being of service. It is associated with the element of Water.

The Walnut tree (chocolate brown wood) symbolizes clarity and focus, gathering of energy and beginning new projects, as well as assisting in letting go of unwanted associations and making a transition or shift in your life. It is also a reminder of gratitude, with many references in folklore to people beating the tree with a sense of ingratitude for its fruit. It is associated with the element of fire.

The African Padauk (lustrous orange-red wood) symbolizes power and strength, drawing from the element of fire, and is used for vitality and control yet with a constantly shifting, energy.

The Cherry tree symbolizes strong expression, rebirth, new awakenings and compassion.
