Flowers Beauty and Relaxation Powers

FIGHT ANXIETY WITH FLOWERS BEAUTY AND RELAXATION POWERS

Flowers relax the brain with their colors and beauty (vision), their essence (smell), their texture (touch).

Constant stimuli to the brain can create havoc on our central nervous system, and thus to our way of living.

Learning to relax is primordial, and flowers, herbs and plants can play an important role taking the stress away from your life.

1. Jasmine improves sleep and anxiety

Jasmine is a shrub found outdoors, but with proper care and the right location you can grow it indoors. Its fragrance is not only sweet to our senses, it’s proven to promote a better night’s sleep.

If you surround yourself by jasmine, it’s likely you’ll feel less anxious and more at peace, which results in waking up more alert.

Sleep plays an important role in our physical and mental well-being. If you’re lacking in sleep, you may find you have trouble making decisions, controlling your emotions, solving problems and coping with change.

2. Gerbera daisy helps to remove toxins from the air

It removes benzene from the air – a chemical associated with inks. Add one to your office, laundry room or bedroom to promote a calming ambiance and fight anxiety.

Mist the leaves a few times a week. When this flower blooms, its colorful petals can last up to two weeks. The pretty hue not only adds energy to our homes, but having brightly colored plants in the house and office also helps to promote happiness.

3. ROSES — Take a rose bath

4 Exotic Food and Flowers Meals to Make that Especial Person Fall in Love with You!

Exotic Food and Flowers

Flowers are so beautiful, they look gorgeous in their nature habitat, in our homes. Flowers are given to show love, passion, compassion, celebration, happiness. But flowers are much more than that. Lots of flowers are edible, like these common petunias!

Edible flowers is a trend in gastronomy, and they range from the small and delicate, intended to give just a hint of flavour, to a mouthful, without dominating a dish. Those varieties include marguerites, fuchsias and tagetes (a member of the sunflower family), large and muscular enough in flavour to elbow the cutlet right off your plate.

Did you know you could eat tulips? Club Gascon chef Pascal Aussignac’s green tulip primavera with truffle vinaigrette is one of London’s most iconic restaurant dishes. The lightly scented flowers have an earthy, rich, peppery, herbaceous flavour, and crunchy texture.

Considering Herbal Medicine to Prevent Head Aches and More

An herb is a plant or plant part used for its scent, flavor, or therapeutic properties. Herbal medicines are one type of dietary supplement. They are sold as tablets, capsules, powders, teas, extracts, and fresh or dried plants. People use herbal medicines to try to maintain or improve their health.

Did you know that about 25 percent of the drugs prescribed worldwide are derived from plants? Of the 252 drugs in the World Health Organization’s essential medicine list, 11 percent are exclusively of plant origin.

 In fact, about 200 years ago the first pharmacological compound, morphine, was produced from opium extracted from the seed pods of the poppy flower. Since then, scientists have been studying plants to create the pharmaceutical products we know today. But after years of over-medicating, facing resistant bacteria in the microbiome and treating the illness rather than the root of the problem, people are beginning to pay more attention to natural, herbal medicine

If you are thinking about using an herbal medicine, first get information on it from reliable sources. Make sure to tell your health care provider about any herbal medicines you are taking.
