Flowers bring a gentle scent and pop of colour to the space you are in.
However that is not the only benefits these flowers have. Those with the other benefits will have you sprinting to the Blooming Flower in Toronto to get your very own.
First, they improve your mental health. Flowers give an immediate boost to your emotions because if someone buys you flowers, it can be a sign that they care about you. If you put in the time and effort to pick flowers yourself, it shows that you are putting in time to better yourself and your environment to be more content. Flowers are known to help people relax and feel less stressed. Many people receive or give flowers to hospital patients because a more relaxed patient likely heals faster than a patient that is stressed. As a tool to help the patient relax, flowers are the perfect gift choice. Floral scents such as lavender are also famous for having soothing effects. You can customize the bouquet based on the colour and scent to fit the need of the person you are gifting it to, or the space you want to put it in.
Flowers and floral scents also aid in memory and concentration. Floral scents unlock a part in your brain that is responsible for association, which is often a method used for memorization. The flowers and their scent leave a very strong lasting impression because it leaves an imprint in your mind with two separate senses, and scent is known to have a stronger associative quality (same as why people remember the scent of their mother’s cooking or when they first smelled something foul).
If you live in Toronto, look no further than the Blooming Flower Bar in Cabbagetown. They have a wide assortment of flowers, which you can either curate your own bouquet or choose one of the many amazing bouquets the store has designed.
