Since the pandemic began, sending flowers to loved ones for birthdays we can’t spend with them or just to show we care has become the norm. But we now don’t only order flowers for others; we also pick them up for ourselves as an act of self-gifting and self-care, which can only be a great thing.
In fact, according to Serenata Flowers, self-gifting flowers has soared by 300 per cent in the last 12 months, making the whole practise totally normal and acceptable.
In response to this demand, the brand has even created their first ever range of mood-boosting flowers that have wellness benefits. They’ve worked with colour and design psychology expert and author Karen Haller to create three bunches that harness the power of colour to provide said benefits.
There are three mood-boosting flower bouquets on offer, each of which promise to provide a different benefit, from delivering mental focus to finding inner peace. The first is Summer Elixir, price at £34.99. This bunch features soft pink fluffy peonies and bright yellow wollyheads to calm and make you feel soothed and welcome.
Next is the Sea Of Clarity bunch, also at £34.99. The star of this arrangement is the bright blue hydrangea that sits amongst baby eucalyptus leaves and fluffy white Gypsophila. It’s been designed to give mental clarity and focus.
Finally, the Field Of Serenity flowers (£29.99) is a long-life bouquet of dense green foliage peppered with hypericum coco uno. This bunch aids relaxation, rest and peace, so is particularly handy if you stress easily.
Speaking of the collection, Karen Haller said: ‘Colour, quite simply, is energy visualised, so the colours we surround ourselves with have a profound impact on our emotions and how we feel and behave. Each tint, tone or shade of colour holds unique wellness benefits, and flowers, organically growing in a myriad of colours, are a great way to naturally harness positive emotional change and support within our homes.’
