Flowers can affect our mood. Their color sometimes affects our health. The science studying and applying the healthy effect of colors is called color therapy (colorotherapy). How do flowers affect mood? The color red has a positive effect on the immune system, therefore it has a beneficial effect on those who are exhausted, those who have undergone surgery, those suffering from spring or chronic fatigue. The flaming scarlet bouquet has an invigorating effect, “mobilizes” the nervous system.

Under no circumstances should red roses, carnations, dahlias, etc. be served to people with hypertension, because red color increases blood pressure!

Violet has a calming effect, strengthens the inner balance. Those engaged in mental work put a vase with a purple bouquet on the table, as it activates the thought process.

The color yellow symbolizes the sun. It is credited with mood-enhancing and energizing properties. If you want people to always be sunny, “radiant” flowers are offered – yellow roses and tulips, daffodils, crocuses…

Considering all this, we could distinguish between warm and cool colors. Warm colors include yellow, orange and red (orange-red is the warmest). The cold ones are blue, green and violet. However, it is possible to make cold ones warmer by means of hues (for example, yellow-green is warmer than blue-green). In such cases, care must be taken that warm colors do not dominate (green dominates ultramarine, but loses to red).

With a combination of yellow and blue, to have harmony, the yellow should be less. Lighting makes a dark color more intense than a light color in the shade. If a cheerful mood is sought, warm tones are chosen, but for solemn occasions cold ones are preferred. A calm atmosphere is created by flowers of the same color. Combinations allow different shades of the same color in an ascending line – white colors are suitable for bright colors, they also harmonize with cold ones, and also with light violet, light red, blue, bright orange and yellow.

Change your mood and your surroundings with the color of flowers

How do flowers affect mood? Each of us prefers a certain color and this preference speaks for us. However, by choosing the right color, we can improve our mood, facilitate relaxation or, on the contrary, stimulate activity, namely, turn to a loved one with a flower.

And if we combine the colors of the decoration and the furnishing of the apartment with flowers, we can move to one or another part of the apartment according to our mood.

White also shows optimism, reliability, kindness, especially if you buy white lilies. Think of the spring atmosphere when the fruit trees are in bloom. A little pink will only enhance the effect.

But people who are softer, more reserved and looking for courage can use the power of this color. If we just need a burst of energy at any time and also courage, red flowers are absolutely perfect. If you even give red tulips as a gift, you will give your loved one the most curious flowers in life. Red roses, for variety, symbolize devotion. However, it is better not to give red carnations, because here the symbolism is completely different. Condolences.
