Giving Tree / Humidifier

Giving Tree
Giving Tree

An all-natural humidifier, ‘Giving Tree’ adds moisture via natural evaporation.
An ancient ancestral idea utilizing pine cones to decrease humidity. Pine cones retract when they absorb moisture but open after drying out.
The movement of oriental paper is very much like that of pine cones, which tells you when to supply water. Fill a bowl with water, and the paper leaves will both absorb and spread humidity. When utilized, the Giving Tree imparts moisture into the air faster than by just leaving water out in a bowl.
The natural material and aesthetic shape is a wonderful addition to your life.
