We all know that flowers can brighten our surroundings and cheer us up. A lone bloom or a bevy of blossoms can lift our spirits. In their many lovely forms, flowers captivate us with colour and scent, distracting us in the most wonderful way. Subtle or striking, they can be therapeutic. Flowers have power and here’s how: The colours of flowers can make you happier through chromatherapy, in which colour balances “energy” that may be lacking, to improve one’s spiritual, physical or emotional body.
