Flowers are a simple way to improve emotional health, inspire us, and elevate our moods. Chinese healers say that the various colors of flowers allow us to summon specific powers and emotions. “Each color creates a different frequency of lightwaves, they believe, which travel through the retina and down the optic nerve, setting off a chain reaction of responses in the body. Neurotransmitters are then released, inducing the production of calming hormones like melotonin, stimulating hormones like adrenaline, and mood-boosting hormones like serotonin.” *
Red roses increase energy.
Irises boost confidence.
Sunflowers enhance alertness.
Bluebells encourage a good night’s sleep.
Green zinnias promote relaxation.
Orange daisies prevent allergies.

And an added benefit for goddesses looking for a soulmate: “A recent behavioral study conducted at Rutgers University shows that men who receive flowers demonstrate increased social interaction and happiness. The men who received flowers demonstrated increased eye contact in conversation, stood in closer proximity to the researchers, and produced more and truer smiles than those men who did not receive flowers. “If you want to get him to open up, send flowers.” *
