Flowers have long been known to have healing properties. For centuries they’ve been used medicinally, and some consider flower essence itself to have profound effects on the mind and body. Today, science tells us that we aren’t wrong. A 2008 study showed that hospitalized patients who had flowers or a potted plant in their room actually used less pain medication and had lower blood pressure than those who had rooms without any fresh blooms or plants. Research shows that those who exchange flowers tend to have better relationships with friends and family, which in turn promotes well being.
At Mission Viejo Florist, we maintain a collection of flowers that we think are ideal arrangements for every get well scenario.
There’s no reason that your get well bouquet can’t be elegant, as if it were made for the dining table and not the bedside one. Our Angelique Bouquet shows how this is done, presenting as an enviably sophisticated bunch of blooms and punctuated with vibrant violet flowers alongside creamy, white roses.
This graceful piece is light and uplifting but doesn’t err on the side of being too vivid or overwhelming in a room. And if there are other get well flowers in the same space, these will certainly stand out from the pack. Give your friend or loved one something really beautiful to enjoy while they recover, and you’ll benefit just as much from the giving. There’s a lot of power in the exchange of giving flowers, and just as many benefits for the giver as the receiver.
