Beloved Flower Lover,
Vitamin Sunshine……Spring time in London…..
We love the sun and have created sunny designs……then we came across some great research by Jayme Barrett…..From A to E, who says that vitamins are responsible for strengthening our senses, bolstering our bones and invigorating our bodies from the inside out. She took it all a step further by saying that research proves that flowers, do the same and has actually come up with the concept that they offer us Vitamin F.
Yes we like.
She says, that they help feed our need for serenity, inspiration, wellness, gratitude, love and optimism. We love how her research states how the mind and matter are interconnected, and that as she points to university research studies linking flowers with happiness, creativity, compassion and tranquility is very very important. So go and get your flowers people.
“People and flowers both have a life force that needs oxygen to thrive, and light and water to live. And, when we are surrounded by nature, our emotions are calmed and harmonized,” says Barrett, who has applied the principles of Zen and feng shui to floral design. Her philosophy is that we can cultivate idyllic atmospheres by purposefully integrating flowers throughout our living space.
In fact, research from America’s leading universities has cemented the connection that flowers have both scientific and emotional powers. As early as 2000, Rutgers University found that flowers create instant delight and happiness, and increase enjoyment and life satisfaction. Most recently, a Harvard University study introduced small bouquets of flowers into people’s morning routines and discovered that respondents immediately perked up, much like they would with a morning vitamin.
We love this reserach in our team and know that anyone can introduce a range of positive floral energies into the home. Barrett shares a simple, do-it-yourself guide to creating Vitamin F arrangements. Her seven soul-stimulating energies include gratitude, wellness, inspiration and motivation, love and romance, new beginnings, serenity, and prosperity. Her floral formula factors in color combination, shape and significance, vase style, placement in the home and flower variety.
We are so fortunate to be living at a time when more and more people are open to this and are using our services to experience the best of life.
Love the London Sunshine
