Hildegard of Bingen was a Christian mystic, visionary, and polymath. She is one of the best-known composers of sacred monophony, as well as the most-recorded in modern history. She has been considered by many in Europe to be the founder of scientific natural history in Germany.
Along with her impressive body of work and ethereal musical compositions, Hildegard is best known for her spiritual concept of Viriditas – “greenness” - the cosmic life force infusing the natural world. For Hildegard, the Divine manifested itself and was apparent in nature.
Her resonant sounds kept appearing in the formulation of this scent. Bringing to consciousness the connecting force we all have to the botanical world. A living perception; alive, breathing, freshly existing in the new earth garden of our inner-worlds.
