The Healing Power of Flowers
07 October 2014
Flowers have always been widely acknowledged to have some form of healing power, be it to soothe the soul with vibrant colours and intoxicating scents from beautiful blooms, to the practice of crushing petals and stems and mixing them with other home-made remedies for various ailments. Flowers have long been associated with having healing powers in different ways from their original state to variations of essential oils, essences and perfumes.
The belief in the healing power of flowers can be traced back to the ancient Egyptians, who believed that flowers were given healing powers by the gods and that the healing power was contained in the spirit, or essence of the flower itself. Ancient Egyptians believed that the scent from flowers was also a gift given by the gods to allow mortals to become more perfect through inhaling it.
As well as the healing power of natural flowers, in many Buddhist practices, poly silk flowers are used as offerings to Buddha and are generally the corresponding colour as the Buddha they are being offered to – for example the Wisdom Buddha is orange and so generally, orange poly silk flowers will be used in offerings and practices.
