They say that there are five romance languages, Spanish, French, Potuguese, Italian, and Roman. Although, there is a language that has been long forgotten to most; the language of flowers and plants.
The language of flowers is one that has always fascinated me
- the color of a flower
- the way it is given
- the type of flower
- the occasion
Every single one of those factors plays into Floriography -turns out that’s the term people use to refer to the language of flowers, who knew?
Well, this got me thinking, if there are meaning to flowers, then maybe there is a language to plants, too.
Guess what? There are!
So I’ve made a small list of plants you can keep in and around the house to keep you going strong during your recovery process.
-Note: I’ve specifically chosen plants that double as cooking spices but you can do your own research and find the ferns, daisies, aloe or holly that fits your needs.
Basil for: Good wishes, and to help steady the mind
Thyme for: Courage, strength, positive attitude and to dispel hopelessness
Parsley for: Gratitude, and increase strength and vitality
See, I told you it was a small list, and there are some places that sell a set of starter herbs that offer these and a few others for a small fee.
These aromas, and tastes if you choose to cook with them, will reenforce your sobriety standards and help keep you focused and on track without having to think about it too much.
Happy planting! =]
