Do you ever wonder why you feel instantly positive after shopping for fresh floral arrangements or getting a surprise flower delivery? You’re not imagining it; flowers have incredible benefits beyond their breathtaking beauty. 

Flowers have soothing properties that are effective for managing stress and anxiety. Whether in the form of a lovely hand bouquet, a flowering plant, essential oils, botanical-infused tea blends, or a luxurious flower bath, you’ll never go wrong with the following blooms on this list. 


Chrysanthemums are traditionally used as a critical ingredient in different therapeutic tinctures and teas in herbal medicine. In addition, as a flowering plant, it can effectively filter toxic substances, like benzene, potentially purifying and improving indoor air quality. Colorful chrysanthemums also make a wonderful addition to get well floral arrangements for friends, family, or colleagues. 


Roses are celebrated not only for their beauty. According to London-based aromatherapist Danièle Ryman, their fragrance can also be used to help manage post-natal depression, menstrual problems, and calm down “feelings of anger and fear.” In addition, stunning rose floral arrangements may be the perfect heartwarming gifts for celebrating motherhood or pick-me-up presents to help a friend or family ease the baby blues away.
