It is aptly quoted that in joy or sadness, flowers are our constant friends. The presence of fresh blooms and scented petals make our mundane lives bearable. Apart from being a sight for sore eyes, flowers are equipped with a myriad of benefits. As per scientific research, flowers can boost our moods and lighten our spirits by inducing the release of the happy hormone called dopamine. Their presence can also calm down anxious thoughts as the stress-relieving hormone – serotonin – is triggered in the human brain when fresh flowers are around. Therefore, they have a veritable significance in religious functions and special occasions like weddings.
