Health Benefits of Flowers & Plants for Us & Them

by | Jul 3, 2023 | Tips


Not only do house plants and flowers (from your locally owned Durham florist!) provide visual beauty but also have numerous benefits for our health. Plants release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, making them essential for clean air that we need to breathe. Having indoor plants and flowers can improve the air quality in our homes and offices.

Flowers and plants have a calming effect on people and provide good energy in spaces, reducing stress levels. Studies have shown that being in the presence of plants and flowers can help to lower blood pressure and reduce anxiety levels.

Plants are very sensitive to the energy of their surroundings, including the emotional energy of the people around them. When we speak to plants with positive intentions, they can actually thrive and grow more successfully. Talking, singing, or communicating with plants and flowers can improve their aesthetic and enhance their health.

Similarly, negative energy or high stress levels can have a detrimental effect on plants and flowers. When plants are exposed to these, they can experience stunted growth, wilting, or even die.

Plants can help make life smoother, more productive, healthier, more joyful, and less lonely. Caring for plants and watching them grow can be a very rewarding experience, especially for those who may otherwise feel alone or isolated. Non-talking, non-walking, living things can boost our mood and contribute to our well-being.

Each flower and plant has its unique personality and living requirements, Some plants require more water than others, and some are more sensitive to their surroundings. By taking the time to understand and care for our plants, we can create a nurturing and supportive environment for them to grow and flourish.

Plants are truly remarkable living things that have a lot to teach us and can help us appreciate life in new ways. So call us here at Poppy Belle, Durham’s artistic floral and plant designer, so we can create a healthy warm environment for you!
