How Flowers can Impact your Health

Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below

It’s no secret that for years, we have given flowers and plants as tokens to express appreciation and love. We have tapped into the numerous meanings and symbols hidden within our favorite blooms’ vibrant colors, unique combinations, and flower types to craft the perfect and sentimental arrangements for every situation or feeling. While plants and buds are great terms of endearment, it might be surprising for many of us to learn that our favorite flowers can impact our health.

 

This is great news, especially when we consider how much money and time we spend on trying to achieve better health and happiness. After all, in Singapore alone we dedicate between 8 and 10 percent of our income to a Medisave account. While we are ranked sixth in the world for health care, we can’t forget about how costly medical and health services are around the world. For instance, in the United States they spend almost $10,000 annually per person. Even in these two different parts of the world, all people are still concerned about their health and are seeking better alternatives to expensive or reactive treatments. This provides us a great opportunity to share with others how flowers can impact our health.

 

 The Medical Power of Flowers

 

Surprisingly, there is a little truth to that coined 60’s term: “flower power”. When we think about our health and flowers, most of us immediately consider allergies. Even though allergies do cause us problems, there are a variety of hypo-allergenic plants, like hostas and hydrangeas on the market. Anyone, even those with red, itchy eyes and bouts of sneezing can enjoy these blooms. While this is great to know, allergies aren’t the only way flowers can impact our health. We just need to look in our own backyards to harness the power of flowers.

 

Flowers and plants have been shown time and time again to impact our mental and physical health. Today, we have a lot of research pointing out the numerous ways how plants can reduce stress, promote happiness, and even improve our overall well being. If that isn’t reason enough to embrace plants and flowers, it is also paramount we consider that for centuries people have used herbs, plants, and even flowers for herbal and natural health remedies that don’t require a prescription or doctor visit to access.

 

Looking Forward…

 

This powerful side of flowers and plants shows us that besides decorating our lawns and homes, our favorite blooms and foliage can be used to treat a variety of common everyday illnesses. We can take advantage of our local florist or garden for a simple way to improve our health today. For instance, we don’t have to look past our own communities or markets to access these healing plants. Just consider how the common marigold, when dried, can be used to soothe sunburns, inflammation, and other skin conditions. Commonly grown mint and ginger can soothe stomach complaints and aid with digestion. Even the oil of oregano can be applied topically to relieve pain and symptoms from a shingles outbreak.
