Are you familiar with the healing powers of flowers? According to the Society of American Florists, 69% of Americans say the sight and smell of flowers can improve their mood, but flowers can do much more for your overall health as well. Here are some examples of the healing power of flowers.
They Bring About a Sense of Calm
There's nothing fun about being laid up in a hospital bed or even in your own room on bed rest. It can feel drab, and the days can seem to go very slowly. Having something like a beautiful bouquet from a florist in there can brighten the mood. Those flowers can just make a room feel a lot more comfortable, which can then lower stress levels and help the patient that's in there think about healing.
They Enhance Emotional and Spiritual Life
Getting someone something like a flower bouquet can also make them feel happy. Flowers, in general, are able to help people access the happiness portion of the brain. Just looking at them in a vase or in a yard can boost someone's mood. If you're having an exceptionally bad day, think about your favorite flower. Unless you envision a weed like crabgrass, you'll find it hard to not smile. Then you can use that boost to have a good rest of your day. Even smelling a nice flower can have the same effect on you.
The same can be said for how you feel when you see or smell flowers, it can even help you feel something deep on a spiritual level. Think about what happens when you see flowers. Your brain releases many chemicals like dopamine, oxytocin, and serotonin, also known as the "happy" chemicals when you see or smell flowers. This means it runs deeper than just your basic emotions.
