Product Description

A 26 minute DVD movie presentation of over 260 still photos relating to flora from Australia and around the world. There are loads of gorgeous roses, orchids, camellias, daisies and other familiar flowers and trees from the home garden and botanic gardens. Experience the colour and beauty of nature. Accompanied by peaceful background music – no captions or narration, to enable easy viewing and listening, and reminiscence. Play the preview video.

Ideal for use with high care, palliative care and Sundowner's Syndrome patients because of its calming and soothing effect of colourful images and soundtrack of beautiful piano music (similar to Tasmania's Overland Track DVD). 

Photographed mostly in Australia, highlighting some of its unique wildflowers, there's also
desert flora from Utah and Arizona and flowers from Alaska, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Florida

This movie can be useful for horticultural therapy and also colour therapy (chromotherapy).

"Here are some great ideas to complement the Beautiful Blooms DVD. Use aromatherapy oils to bring back memories of different scents from the garden e.g. lavender or rosemary. Dry some rose petals in the microwave to make pot pourri – something tactile as well as having a beautiful perfume. Residents could then keep some pot pourri in their rooms." Karen, Diversional Therapist, Adelaide, South Australia

"Thank you, I have received the DVD's (Beautiful Blooms and Tasmania's Overland Track) … they are absolutely fabulous, the residents love them and so do the staff!" Helen, Lifestyle Coordinator, Murray Bridge, South Australia

"Fran, Regarding the feedback on the DVD's that we purchased the comments are: "I could watch it all day" (Outback Adventure & Marvellous Machinery). "If you didn’t like that, there's something wrong with you" (Beautiful Blooms). So I would say that they are a big hit here. All residents that have watched them have enjoyed them very much." Trish, Regis Sunraysia, Mildura, Victoria

A great accompaniment to Beautiful Blooms Nonverbal Picture Book CD.
