Welcome to Tara Flowers! Flowers have some very interesting tales and facts to go along with their beauty which we like to share.
Tara – the Tibetan Goddess – Represents the never-ending desires that fuel all life. The flower Tara carries is the Lotus, pictured above.
Flowers – Are such a beautiful gift of nature! Pleasing to the eye, they can brighten, enliven and energize any room – and beautify any landscaping. Some flowers have the most awesome fragrances which captivate your senses to the utmost – fragrances that are captured in the world’s finest perfumes – And their essences have been turned into some of the best therapeutic remedies.
Flowers have carried a language that has different meanings and connotations all over the world. There is no telling exactly how large the degree of influence they have played upon many artists, writers, or poets. They’re a great friend to us whenever we wish to express our thoughts, feelings, and emotions to one another.
Flowers do have the ability to influence our emotions and affect our moods. Rutgers University has conducted a behavioral research study and has found that they actually trigger happy emotions. They also heighten feelings of life satisfaction and affect social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally perceived. As a result of the study, there is very little debate about the evidence that flowers will increase a person’s happiness, their intimacy, or their moods.
The traditional associations linked to flowers are not as impressive, perhaps, as the scientific healing abilities they seem to have. Dr. Roger Ulrich, an environmental psychologist at Texas A&M University, was the first American to research and study the benefits of plants on hospital patients, found that plants have a strange effect on patients when they are visible. It was found through the study that in addition to additional optimism and boosted well-being, the patients had less overall stress, experienced shorter stays in the hospital, and had a lower need for pain medications.
A brand of ‘patient friendly’ health care environments have developed from the findings of that study. What has resulted is an increase in flowers in health care places, as an effort to try to heal the patients in the best possible way.
Over time, flowers have gained associated meanings, and are rarely selected randomly. For example, acacia flowers are given to express concealed love, chaste love, or beauty. Furthermore, the Aster is a plant associated with love/daintiness, the pink carnation one that is linked with never forgetting, the yellow carnation with rejection or disappointment, and the tulip linked with seeing sunshine in anothers’ smile.
From the seemingly simple home and office floral arrangements, to the more spectacular wedding affairs, flowers are a pivotal part of our existence. It is also true that some kinds in particular might have a unique place in coronations, rituals, and various celebrations. On Birthdays we wish our dear and near ones with a fresh bouquet. Whether giving or receiving the message of ‘I care for you’, flowers are a great way to express our emotion.
