Never underestimate the power of flowers! One bundle of blooms could make someone's entire day. If you identify yourself as a flower enthusiast, you’re probably nodding your head in agreement right now. For those who haven’t yet experienced the wonderful benefits of flowers, we hope the following information on blooms will inspire you to buy or arrange a bundle yourself!
- Simply observing flowers can brighten up your day. In general, (softer) less saturated flowers are believed to be relaxing for the observer, whilst (bolder) more saturated flowers work to maximise levels of energy. Try placing blooms near you when having breakfast or tea/coffee in the morning; this will help you kick start the day on a positive note!
- Flowers are great for practising aromatherapy. Certain scents are known to aid specific needs. Lavender, for example, is an effective solution for insomnia as its distinct aroma helps to relax the mind and body. Each of us react to scents in different ways, so explore your options and go for flowers that satisfy your unique sense of smell!
- A bundle of blooms make the perfect gift idea, especially for patients in hospital. Not only do flowers provide great emotional support for the receiver, they can potentially speed up the recovery process of those who are unwell. As mentioned in the previous two points, flowers help to relax our mind and body. A person who is relaxed generally has an easier time getting better than someone who may be dealing with stress and anxiety. Next time you gift a bundle of blooms to a loved one, be assured that those flowers will do a lot more than what you may imagine.
- Did you know people who give flowers also reap benefits? The very act of giving increases emotions of happiness and contentment in the giver. A study conducted at Rutgers University have found that, compared to other gifts, those who choose to give blooms as gifts have higher levels of positivity and emotional intelligence. If you are seeking a gift idea that’s beneficial for both you and the receiver, consider buying a fresh bundle of blooms!
- More and more people are getting very limited exposure to nature these days. Plants are known to oxygenate the surrounding air, making it an essential factor for maintaining healthy brain cells and a clear mindset. If you’re experiencing regular brain fogs, perhaps it’s a sign your body isn’t getting the fresh, quality air it needs to thrive. We encourage you to surround yourself with plenty of flowers and plants, especially in spaces that require a lot of mental energy (e.g. office/study). This will help reduce stress and aid concentration and memory – whilst boosting creative abilities as well!
