For those of you who think there’s no point in sending Get Well flowers — think again! Their beauty alone can uplift us, but it’s the unique energy of each flower that holds the power to truly heal.
What exactly is this flower energy?
Light is a nutrient to living things, just like food. Our bodies need light (the sunshine vitamin), just like plants need sunshine to grow. Well, we all know light is energy, but did you know color is light? That’s right! Color is simply light vibrating at different frequencies. So, if light is energy, and color is light, than that means color = energy!
There is growing evidence that humans respond, both physiologically, mentally and emotionally to different colors. Simply seeing these different colors can be therapeutic, also known as chromotherapy.
