Why the Smells of Flowers Affect Us More Than We Think
By Pat Miller, florist on BloomNation and Owner of A Bed of Roses Florist in San Francisco, CA It turns out there's a reason why you love decorating your home and office with fresh flowers -- biophilia. According to prominent German psychologist Eric Fromm, biophilia is "the passionate love of life and of all that is alive." This natural tendency makes the exposure to plants and flowers on a regular basis more necessary than most would think. Unfortunately, our cemented-over way of daily living disconnects us from the natural world, both physically and emotionally. Recent studies at Harvard and Rutgers show tha...
