There’s nothing more beautiful than the sweet scent of freesias, the spring time favourite was named by Danish botanist Christian P Ecklon, who named them after his friend and fellow botanist, Friedrich H. T. Freese. It is said that freesias symbolise friendship and reflect the bond between Ecklon and Freese.
In the Victorian language of flowers freesias are a symbol of trust and innocence. Due to their citrusy fragrance they are often use in perfumes and cosmetics, while in art of aromatherapy the essential oil of the pretty blooms are used to relieve stress, enhance memory and increase alertness.
Raymond A.Foss’ poem ‘Into the Heart of the Flower’ is an ode to the delicate and fragrant flowers.
A fleeting image of freesia
flickering to life for an instant
flashing onto the screen
So much of the beauty
the artistry, symmetry
looking into the heart of the flower
Subtle colors, fragile parts
as if spun of glass
posed statuettes of grace
GET THE LOOK
Refresh your space with heavenly scented blooms
