Flowers are special. There’s just something about waiting for them to bloom, open up and share a special secret with the world that makes hearts melt and people swoon. Some flowers bloom only rarely and under very specific conditions, like the Night-Blooming Cereus, that only blooms once per year after dark, for one night. Walk past a Lilac tree in bloom and you’re momentarily enveloped by the scent. It’s no wonder that flowers have captured our fascinations for centuries.

They all have their own special meaning, as well. To celebrate our latest creation, Flower Shop (that’s available in Bath Bomb and Bar Soap form) we break down the meaning of the flowers we used to create the intoxicating scent.

Jasmine
Move over, roses! Sensuous and bold, jasmine flowers are most often associated with love. They’re a symbol of beauty and sensuality but can also represent purity, luck and appreciation, depending on the culture. Jasmine is also the national flower of Pakistan!

Chamomile
These little flowers do more than brew a sleepy cup of tea. They’re known to symbolise humility and patience during adversity (pretty topical, huh?).

Geranium
One of the best kinds of love (okay it’s not a contest) is that of a true friend. And that’s what Geranium represents: true friendship.

Lavender
Surprisingly, the flower known for its calming scent can have a very different meaning: caution. Like most flowers, there are multiple meanings, however! Lavender flowers can also represent devotion, purity, or calmness. And their scent, of course leads you to tranquility.

Cornflower
These striking little blue blossoms will fill your tub with love when you use our Flower Shop Bath Bomb, but they also have a romantic meaning. Also known as the “Bachelor Button,” men in folklore wore the cornflower to how they were in love. A fast-fading flower meant their love was not returned. Devastating!

Do you have a favourite flower? Which is it and why?

This sounds so exquisite and exciting! Roses have always been my favorite flower and always shall be, but I adore so many other varieties because God has blessed the world with the beauty of His heart in countless ways. I appreciate everything that Rocky Mountain provides to its customers. I have been delighted with some of your products and wish I could purchase so much more. Thank you for the joy you bring! You are a blessing to many!
