The Health Benefits of Fresh Flowers

There is nothing better than receiving a bouquet of fresh flowers. Aside from being filled with beautiful colors and sweet scents, they have a lot of benefits that can positively impact a person’s overall health. Here are just a few health benefits of filling your environment with fresh flowers!

Health Benefits of Fresh Plants

Improves Emotional Health

Receiving a bouquet of fresh flowers is a meaningful act of kindness. It shows that someone is thinking of you, and that can mean a lot to someone who is having a bad day. Fresh flowers help brighten up your space, and their colors can create positive feelings. For example, yellow is associated with happiness and sunshine. That’s why when you look at a sunflower, you often feel warm and happy. If you want to brighten someone’s day, try gifting our Teleflora’s Bee Well Bouquet!  

Helps Improve Memory and Concentration

If you have fresh flowers around your home, you may notice that you tend to remember more, like that bill that’s due at the end of the week! Plants, including fresh flowers, have the power to increase memory retention and concentration. They help improve air quality, which is beneficial to both our body and mind. Plus, their scents can also help you recall specific memories. Displaying plants and fresh flowers around your home or work environment can help you stay focused and stay organized.

Can Help You Destress and Sleep

Plants and fresh flowers have the power to lower blood pressure, feelings of pain, and anxiety. Your troubles tend to naturally melt away whenever you’ve been gifted a plant or a bouquet of fresh flowers. Feeling calm and less anxious can help us get a great night’s rest. Plus, some flowers such as lavender can help promote a better night’s rest too!

Flowers Help Keep Us Healthy 

Fresh flowers help pull toxins out of the air while creating humidity as they process water. They are helpful during the winter months because they help keep our skin and sinuses healthy and hydrated. Thus, decreasing the chances of developing colds and dry coughs during the winter weather.

At Dallas House of Flowers, we have plenty of arrangements to gift to someone, or to decorate your space. Shop from our large personalized selection or have one of our professionals customize one for you!
