Researchers from Rutgers University determined that the
flower recipients in the study experienced an elevation
in mood that lasted for days. And Chinese healers - who've
long believed in "flower power" - say that it
doesn't stop there. They say you can utilize flowers
to summon whatever power or emotion you'd like - and that
the secret is in the flower's color. Each color creates
a different frequency of light waves, 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 melatonin, stimulating hormones like adrenaline,
and mood-boosting hormones like serotonin.
Here, how you can enjoy the physical and emotional benefits
Increase energy with red roses
Since red has the slowest vibratory rate and and longest
wavelength, it stimulates adrenal glands, boosting energy.
Boost confidence with irises
The color indigo stimulates the brain's pineal gland,
which is the regulator of sleep patterns. Indigo also
helps to free the mind of worries, fear and inhibition.
Enhance alertness with sunflowers
Yellow light waves stimulate the brain, making you alert,
clearheaded and decisive. And since we associate yellow
with the sun's rays and daylight, it's said to help us
feel more optimistic.
Get a good night's sleep with bluebells
Blue triggers the production of melotonin, a brain chemical
that helps us relax and sleep soundly. Blue also stimulates
the thyroid gland to release thyroxin, a hormone that
regulates metabolic rate.
Relax with green zinnias
Green affects the nervous system, making us breathe slowly
and deeply, slowing the production of stress hormones
and helping the heart relax.
Prevent allergies with orange daisies
Orange strengthens the immune system and the lungs, which
can ward off spring allergies. Orange also has a strong
beneficial effect on the digestive system and can stimulate
the sexual organs.
Relieve stress with lilacs
Violet cools us, alleviating "hot" conditions
like heat rash and sunburn, and suppressing hunger and
balancing metabolism. It also stimulates the pituitary
gland, the part of the brain that releases tension-fighting
