What Is Floral Therapy?

Beyond the positive impact that office flowers have on staff morale, there are a range of other benefits locked away inside those beautiful buds. From medicine to beautiful fragrances, there are a multitude of uses that have been discovered over centuries. Floral therapy, therefore, is the successful use of petals and other parts of a plant to improve physical and mental health.

Flowers in Medicine

When thinking about the medicinal uses of flowers and plants, you could be forgiven for jumping to the conclusion that they’re only found within alternative or herbal medicine. However, there are well over 100 medicinal compounds derived from some sort of plant.

One of the most well-known medicines on the market is Aspirin; a product of none other than willow bark. Furthermore, Digitalin, used to control heart rate, is derived from the beautiful Foxglove.

Flowers in Beauty Products

When walking around the lotions and potions aisle of your local supermarket, you’ve no doubt come across some familiar ingredients, such as Lavender and Aloe Vera. These two plants, as well as an array of others, not only look beautiful themselves, but are worshipped by beauty gurus because of their beautifying properties.

Lavender has soothing properties that ease skin inflammation, Rose petals are famed for their ability to reduce redness in skin, and Aloe Vera is incredibly moisturising and gentle on the skin.
