Scientific research has documented the wonderful effect working with fresh flowers have on our emotional wellness. The secret is in the flower's color. Each color creates a different frequency of light waves, they believe, which travel through the retina and down the optic nerve setting off a chain reaction of responses in the body. Neurotransmitters are released inducing the production of calming hormones like melotonin, stimulating hormones like adrenaline and mood-boosting hormones like serotonin.
