  • Flowers-Vitamin F Flowers Fuel the Soul and Create Inspiring Spaces

     Today I was researching Flowers and their affect on our emotions when I found some very interesting information, so I thought I would share this with you.

    From A to E, vitamins are responsible for strengthening our senses, bolstering our bones and invigorating our bodies from the inside out. Research proves that flowers, being dubbed by some as Vitamin F, help feed our need for serenity, inspiration, wellness, gratitude, love and optimism.

     

    Mind and matter are interconnected, according to personal fulfillment expert and best-selling author Jayme Barrett, as she points to university research studies linking flowers with happiness, creativity, compassion and tranquility. Barrett’s interiors expertise coupled with the floral investigations demonstrate that flowers hold an intrinsic, natural energy that, when used throughout the home, can create positive shifts in emotions, and lead to truly inspired living.

    “People and flowers both have a life force that needs oxygen to thrive, and light and water to live. And, when we are surrounded by nature, our emotions are calmed and harmonized,” says Barrett, who has applied the principles of Zen and feng shui to floral design. Her philosophy is that we can cultivate idyllic atmospheres by purposefully integrating flowers throughout our living space.

    In fact, research from America’s leading universities has cemented the connection that flowers have both scientific and emotional powers. As early as 2000, Rutgers University found that flowers create instant delight and happiness, and increase enjoyment and life satisfaction. Most recently, a Harvard University study introduced small bouquets of flowers into people’s morning routines and discovered that respondents immediately perked up, much like they would with a morning vitamin.

    “We need and deserve simple ways of creating homes where we feel happy and harmonious by disconnecting from the hectic pace of the world outside,” says Barrett. “Flowers are a wonderful way to ease the stress of everyday life and refocus our emotions more constructively.”

    So that anyone can introduce a range of positive floral energies in the home, Barrett shares a simple, do-it-yourself guide to creating Vitamin F arrangements. Her seven soul-stimulating energies include gratitude, wellness, inspiration and motivation, love and romance, new beginnings, serenity, and prosperity. Her floral formula factors in color combination, shape and significance, vase style, placement in the home and flower variety.

  • Flower of the Month Chrysanthemum

     Did you know that the name Chrysanthemum comes from two Greek words

    Chrysos meaning gold and "anthos" meaning flower?
    The genus chrysanthemum is a large one, having both ornamental and also economic value. These flowers vary greatly in form, size and colour and can be grown in many climates.
    The origin of the chrysanthemum is actually Asia and the native habitat of the plants is Northern China,Mongolia,Korea and later Japan.
    Chrysanthemum buds should open in the vase if a floral preservative is used. Its best to buy chrysanthemum's where at least half the flowers are open. NEVER NEVER smash,crush or split the stems of Chrysanthemums or other woody stem flowers such as Proteas or Roses.This damages the stems and hinders the water uptake, meaning the flowers will wilt more quickly, keep them out of draughts and sunlight
