Flowers aren’t merely decorative, they are major players in our health and well being. They’ve been used for centuries in medicinal tinctures or added to teas. Certain essences are said to have the ability to reduce stress and promote sleep. When it comes to the value of flowers as a get well gift, there’s really no competition.
Curran’s Flowers is well aware of these benefits, as study after study confirms that flowers really do promote better health. A 2008 study found that, for instance, patients who have flowers or a potted plant in their hospital room rely on pain medication less and have lower blood pressure overall.
We say, if you’re going to take advantage of all of flowers’ healing properties, pick a bouquet that is bright and seems just snatched from the garden. This will convey all the freshness of outside, which your recipient is likely missing, and will hint at brighter days ahead. Our Wildflower Garden Vase is a great example of the form.
This graceful piece would look wonderful on a nightstand or other bedside table, where its visually arresting design would give someone under the weather something to enjoy while they recover. Flowers always make a person feel cherished and important, and it’s that feeling especially you want to give someone who is under the weather.
