For thousands of years, flowers have been used widespread, throughout many different cultures from all over the world, to help treat health related ailments, as well as used for beauty and overall wellness. Each culture having their own access to specific botanical species found in their part of the world, engineered their own herbal concoctions that they then passed on from generation to generation.
Our ancestors observed (from patterns throughout time) the health benefits these plants and flowers possessed. They couldn't tell us the specific compounds of each of these plant species that modern science can explain to us today, but they knew of and had experienced the healing powers of these florals themselves, passing their knowledge on to the next generation to further explore and innovate. At this current point in time, we now can understand why our ancestors used these plants with actual scientific explanation. Not only gorgeous, our list of florals below are packed with skin loving super powers that we are excited to tell you a bit about.
