Cool Healing Power of Flowers

A few well-known flowers, and their healing and nutrition properties...

Quote:
Flower Power: The Healing Power of Flowers

Dandelion: Dandelion Root can be made into a bitter tea (don't sweeten it, the
bitterness is how it works ? you'll get use to it) as an excellent tonic for the
liver and blood purifier. Dandelion roots are very high in vitamins and
minerals. The common dandelion is an unusually nutritious food. Its leaves
contain substantial levels of vitamins A, C, D, and B complex as well as iron,
magnesium, zinc, potassium, manganese, copper, choline, calcium, boron, and
silicon.
Worldwide, the root of the dandelion has been used for the treatment of
a variety of liver and gallbladder problems. Other historical uses of the root
and leaves include the treatment of breast diseases, water retention, digestive
problems, joint pain, fever, and skin diseases. The most active constituents in
dandelion appear to be eudesmanolide and germacranolide, substances unique to
this herb.

Jasmine: Jasmine is a bold, sweet scent. Jasmine is the greatest aphrodisiac of
all. These night blooming flowers are picked at their height to bring out one of
the most sexy scents. Associated throughout history with the compassionate
Goddess of the Moon, Jasmine, grown along the Nile in ancient Egypt, is
represented Isis, the Egyptian Mother Goddess who held the secrets of fertility,
magic and healing.

Milk Thistle: Milk Thistle is the best in cleaning our blood and liver and is a
traditional way to get our health back on track and revitalize and nourish our
entire internal ecological system from the ravages of winter. Milk Thistle is an
excellent cleansers for the liver. Cleansing is one of the more important roles
of Milk Thistle as it helps to prevent a host of problems our bodies can acquire
from internal and external toxic overload.

Patchouli: Patchouli is a sweet, earthy scent. Its smell is intense and spicy.
From an energetic point of view, Patchouli, like Jasmine, is warm and yet
anti-inflammatory in action. It combines a calmative property with a gentle
stimulating effect that uplifts the spirit! Patchouli is a sweet and grounding
harmonizing fragrance!

Neroli: Neroli is distilled from bitter orange trees. It has a refreshing, spicy
aroma and is known for its sensual, exotic effect. Neroil oil is emotionally
unifying and soothes with harmonizing effects. Described as both sensual and
spiritual, Neroli helps to restablish the link between a disconnected mind and
body. Neroli paves the way for a gradual release and allows us to recall hope
and joy!

Rose: The Mother of All Flowers, the Rose has amazing powers of love, trust and
self acceptance. Roses are representative of faith, hope and love and has the


qualities to restore the very center of one's being. A gentle tonic of the
heart, Rose oil's psychological properties lie mainly in its effect on the mind,
the center of our emotional being. Rose oil calms and supports the heart and
helps to nourish the soul!

Flowers have a magic all of their own. They can raise the spirits in an instant; they can express feelings in a way that most of us could not find the words to say and they make people happy! Which is the greatest life-enhancing 'tonic' there is...

For some reason awhile back, I found an essential oil of carnation to be most comforting. I hung onto it forever.

I may just get some again.
