LARCH

The sight of a colourful larch forest delights visitors to the Alpine region, especially in spring and autumn. The larch is the second most common tree in South Tyrol and the only native conifer whose needles turn red and fall after the summer months and autumn. Larch trees need a lot of sunlight to grow, but can then grow to 40 metres and live to 800 years.

The precious larch oil which is extracted in our in-house oil distillery has many possible uses. You can find this and other valued natural products from the Sarntal Valley in the form of pure, organic essential oils in our Natur-Shop in Unterreinswald or directly online here.

In the fairy-tale forest

The larch gives you conviction and self-confidence. Trust in yourself!

Your herd has roamed under your direction for many years. You know the lushest pastures, the freshest springs and also the various danger spots. As a leader, you must always be on the alert. Protect your herd. Warn them about hunters. And protect them from rivals. Night and day.

It will soon be rutting season. You must strengthen and prepare yourself. Because you don’t want to lose your place in the herd. To be honest, yours is a very stressful job. As dominant male, you have the lead role. You are always at the centre of things. You must be there for the whole herd, be a role model and always radiate confidence and calm. Because they all trust you, trust that you know when the time is right to move on, that you sense when danger is imminent and that you know where to eat and rest comfortably.

It is all very tiring. And in reality you don’t exactly know everything. Sometimes you are also unsettled and at a loss. But you can’t let it show. Because you don’t want to further frighten the rest of your, naturally shy, herd. You must be strong. Always and everywhere.

Luckily, you‘ve found a place where you can recharge your batteries. A place of peace and relaxation. Right by your favourite tree. It is big and strong and so surprisingly resilient. No storm or amount of snow can harm it. You can remember the mighty larch from your early days as deer calf. It has always been there. Steadfast and unshakeable.

For you, the larch is like a grounding anchor. Your magnet. An eternal rock that supports you and will always be there. No matter what happens. Its fresh scent gives you clarity and gives you the necessary perspective to make your decisions consciously and in the interests of the whole herd.

At the same time, it signals the arrival and conclusion of the warmer months. Because the fine needles fall to the ground when it gets cold. At this time you know it is time to head to lower clearings. And as soon as the bare branches start to bloom again, the warm summer months are on their way and you can move towards higher locations.

The larch is so many things for you. It is your compass. Your calendar. But above all, your strengthening haven of calm that renews your self-confidence. „Thank you, dear larch, for letting me be strong and steady!“
