* The heart of your home: Luxurious preserved roses have come to be recognised as exquisite ornaments and as such a great way to use them is as the cynosure of your home.

* Corner designs: This hip aspect of home decor often is the hardest to execute. A great way to utilize this space is to use gorgeous infinity roses. Rustic dark wood corner stands in a contemporary setting adorned with elegant black or navy coloured preserved roses add a truly opulent feel to your home.

* Bring nature to you: Patterned plants are turning into a trend statement and indoor landscaping is the new black. Adding a touch of vivacious preserved roses to a landscaped living room deck or terrace is sure to elevate your leisure time to a whole new level. The best part, preserved roses retain their natural look and feel and last a whole year without any maintenance.

* Since they are long lasting, you can always switch the places for the boxes and they can adorn your coffee tables, consoles or as an accessory on vanity table top

* A bedtime treat: An artisanal vase of pure white or pastel coloured preserved roses perfectly complements your intricate and plush bedroom. Beside a mirror in your bedroom is a great place for these roses because not only will it reflect natural light, it will also amplify the beauty of your preserved roses.

* Utility combined with beauty: While preserved roses are playing a key part in terms of your interiors, few of them are often packaged in beautiful acrylic boxes with a drawer where in you can keep your beauty products like eye cream, hand cream, amongst other for that quick moisturising before going to bed

Lavender Causes A Soothing Effect On The Body: Study

Lavender could be used pre-surgery or by those who struggle to take drugs.

Scientists have discovered that the fragrant flower lavender is relaxing and may help people unwind and could even be a safer alternative to anti-anxiety drugs.

The study, over mice, showed that the vaporised lavender compound linalool must be smelt — not absorbed in the lungs — to feel its calming effects, which could be used to relieve preoperative stress and anxiety disorders.

Mice show less signs of anxiety when they smell the fragrant flower.

“In folk medicine, it has long been believed that odorous compounds derived from plant extracts can relieve anxiety,” said co-author Hideki Kashiwadani of Kagoshima University in Japan.

The fragrant flower can also act as an alternative to current anxiolytic (anxiety-relieving) drugs like benzodiazepines, which is known to cause memory problems, male breast growth and birth defects.

In the study, published in Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience, the researchers tested mice to see whether it is the smell of linalool — i.e. stimulation of olfactory (odour-sensitive) neurons in the nose — that triggers relaxation.

They found that linalool odour has an anxiolytic effect in normal mice. However, this did not impair their movement.

This contrasts with benzodiazepines, and linalool injections, whose effects on movement are similar to those of alcohol.

“The results suggest that linalool does not act directly on GABAA receptors like benzodiazepines do but must activate them via olfactory neurons in the nose in order to produce its relaxing effects,” Kashiwadani explained.

“Our study also opens the possibility that relaxation seen in mice fed or injected with linalool could in fact be due to the smell of the compound emitted in their exhaled breath.”

Lavender could also be used pre-surgery or by those who struggle to take drugs, the team said. (IANS)
