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.
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!
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?).
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.
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.
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!
