Flower Power Love

Flowers are considered to be one of the world's most beautiful sexual organs. The symbolism of flowers to the sexual organs of a woman can be seen similar  in which a bud blossoms and opens up, making itself vulnerable to the pollination and fertilization of others. It is no wonder why flowers are the most common gift given to lovers, for they symbolize the beauty of human sexuality. 

Roses is mythical and magical notions dated back to Adam and Eve and it is believed that Cleopatra scattered rose petals before Mark Anthony's feet. My most treasured belief in flower folklore is that of Goddess Aphrodite/Venus. She  captivated the beauty and love of the universe.The Goddess of love and beauty was also known as the Goddess of flowers. 

I am mesmerized by the beauty of flowers. The colors, fragrance, anatomy, and eccentricities each possesses. The healing powers of flower essences has blessed my life. I have a flower, feather and precious jewels of the earth art biz. Forest of Jade. Nature creations inspired by Jade and Forest, my most precious jewels that I  birthed  2 Earth. I create adornments of flowers that are scented with flower essences for their healing properties. If interested in purchasing check out: 

  Here are some symbolic flower essences associated with stages of healing and discovering love: 
Jasmine (Jasminum Officinale): Stimulates the Divine spark in the heart chakra and helps the development of self worth and mental clarity.  This essence is a powerful aid in shifting blockages of self-love and self-acceptance. 
Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia):  Establishes emotional balance, calming, soothing and centering one in the physical body. It also balances the crown chakra with the heart chakra and facilitates contact with the Higher Self and the spiritual realms.
