As we shake off another snowstorm in Colorado, I’m torturing myself today by writing about a lush tropical garden on Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula for the July/August issue of Natural Home. I love this video of Finca Exotica owners Markus Wehrmeister and Gabriela Naranjo talking about their gardening techniques—and sharing a simple tip for starting the day out right with just-picked aromatherapy. So, those of you with access to citrus leaves right now—come on, get happy. Do it for those of us stuck cursing this endless winter.
