Nurturing Flowers

Flower arrangements in pastel shades and the softest yellows, peaches, warm pinks, creamy whites and subtle greens make us feel safe, snug and loved. Consider a nurturing floral arrangement for a new mother, a sick friend or a grieving loved one – anyone who would benefit from a caring, loving embrace.

Flower Health Benefits & Research - Emotional Impact of Flowers Study

Flowers  Florists

With today's high-tech and fast-paced lifestyle taking its daily toll on our lives, experts advise exercise and other personal lifestyle changes to relieve stress.

According to behavioral research conducted at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, nature provides us with a simple way to improve emotional health - flowers. The presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed.

"What's most exciting about this study is that it challenges established scientific beliefs about how people can manage their day-to-day moods in a healthy and natural way," said Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Rutgers and lead researcher on the study.

Indeed flowers are a stress reliever. Flowers symbolize friendship, love and well-wishes. If anyone gives you flowers your initial reaction is that you will be happy. Flowers have meanings that will serve as a language to let the recipient know how you feel.

The beauty and grace lies in the variety of different flowers. From red roses, to tulips and other summer flowers which are bright and are lovely, these types of flowers are used for various obvious reasons. They make the occasion all the more special, to top it off presenting a bouquet to the bride increases the beauty of the occasion
