The Language Of Flowers As Seen On Antique Jewelry Casket!White Clover s

,Flowers have been greatly esteemed since the dawn of civilization. Ancient
Egyptians painted them on their temple walls and the withered remains of
flowers have been found in ancient tombs around the world. The colorful and
fragile beauty of flowers has given rise to countless culturally symbolic
meanings, and folktales about flowers have abounded from the earliest times
although not in the Western World until the end of the Middle Ages. Floral
representations have been added to all forms and materials of artistic effort
- paintings, metal ware, furniture, fabric and so on. Floral names have even
graced our daughters. Although less common now, names such as Rose, Daisy,
Myrtle, Pansy, and even Honey, were once quite popular.In Europe,
correspondence through flowers began in the 1700's, when Charles II of Sweden
introduced the Persian custom referred to as the "Language of Flowers." The
advent of the Industrial Revolution and the reign of Queen Victoria (of
England) combined to spread the idea of sentimentality with floral motifs.
Victorian homes were elaborately decorated with florals on the walls,
furniture, paintings, utensils, and trinkets. A gift of flowers held much
significance; each blossom conveying a message. An entire conversation could
be expressed through the exchange of flowers!The many legends attached to
flowers might be divided into three classes: the mythological, the
ecclesiastical/ historical, and the poetical. The mythological legends often
relate to "creation" stories as well as the transformation by the gods of
luckless nymphs and youths into flowers and trees, which have since kept their
names. Many stories describe the origin of the color of blossoms. For example,
white flowers are represented as having originated from fallen tears, and
pink or red flowers from blushes or blood. The ecclesiastic/historical
legends are generally due to the reverent imaginings of Catholic monks. While
tending their flowers in the quiet and seclusion of monastery gardens, they
may have associated a certain flower with a memory of some favorite saint
or martyr, and allowed their fancy to weave a fiction to perpetuate the memory
of that saint. Many historical legends pertain to favorite sons and daughters
of the Church. The poetical legends include the numerous fairy tales in which
flowers and plants play an important part, and which may include elves, trolls
and witches. In more recent history (the Victorian era), flowers came to be
a language of symbolic content.The following represents a brief summary of
just a few of the many tales about the blossoms that came to hold so much
meaning during the Victorian period:Grape: Grapes, one of the oldest
cultivated fruits, have appeared as a decorative motif throughout time I
nearly every culture. In some countries, the grape was believed to have been
the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden. They have
been said to signify fertility, sacrifice, hospitality, and charity. To dream
of Grapes foretells to the maiden that her husband will be cheerful and a
great songster. If the dreamer is in love, the grapes foretell a speedy union,
and denote much happiness in the marriage and success in trade. According
to another authority, to dream that you see clusters of Grapes hanging round
about you, predicts future advancement and honor. To the maid it implies
marriage with an ambitious man, who will arrive at great station, but die
early.Forget-Me-Not: According to a German tale full of melancholy and
romance, a young couple was walking along the banks of the Danube on the eve
of being united. They saw a cluster of Forget-Me-Nots floating on the stream
which was bearing it away. The bride-to-be admired the beauty of the flower
and lamented its fatal destiny. Her lover plunged into the water to secure
the flowers. No sooner had he caught them than he found himself sinking. Making
a last effort, he threw the bouquet onto the bank at the feet of his betrothed
and, at that moment of disappearing forever, exclaimed, "Vergiss mein nicht!"
(Forget me not!)Lily of the Valley: Lilies of the Valley, also called
"Virgin's Tears," have blossoms that were thought (during the mid-1500's)
to possess a perfume highly medicinal against "nervous affections." The water
distilled from them was in such great repute that it was kept only in vessels
of gold and silver. There is also a legend that in the forest of St. Leonard,
where the hermit-saint once dwelt, fierce encounters took place between him
and a dragon. The holy man finally succeeded in driving the dragon away, and
the scenes of their battles were revealed afresh each year, when beds of
fragrant Lilies of the Valley appeared wherever the earth had been sprinkled
by the blood of the warrior saint.Daisy: The Daisy has been called the "poet's
darling." Shakespeare and Wordsworth, and many poets in between, have used
the Daisy to represent the quality of pure innocence. The ancient English
name of this flower was Day's Eye, from which came its present name. Chaucer
called it the "ee of the daie," probably from its habit of closing its petals
at night and during rainy weather. There once was a popular superstition that
if you failed to put your foot upon the first Daisy of spring, Daisies would
grow over you before the year was out. Another tale was that Spring had not
arrived until you could put your foot upon twelve Daisies. Today, we enact
the popular tradition. "He loves me, he loves me not." It is considered lucky
to dream of Daisies in Spring or Summer.Clover: The common Clover has a rich
symbolic folklore--not just about its leaves, but also its blossoms. It was
used in festivals of the ancient Greeks. Hope was depicted as a little child
standing on tiptoe, holding a Clover blossom in his hand. The Druids also
used clover in their ceremonies. More recently, to dream of seeing a field
of Clover indicated health, prosperity, and much happiness. A fairy tale from
Cornwall goes like this: One evening a maiden set out to milk the cows later
than usual, and the stars had begun to shine before she completed her task.
An enchanted cow was the last to be milked, and the pail was so full that
the milk-maid could hardly lift it to her head. So she gathered some handfuls
of grass and Clover, spreading it upon her head, in order to carry the
milk-pail more easily. But, no sooner had the Clover touched her head, then
suddenly hundreds of little people appeared surrounding the cow, dipping
their tiny hands into the milk and gathering it with Clover flowers. When
the astonished milk-maid reached home, she recounted this wonderful
experience to her mistress who at once cried out, "Ah! You put a four-leafed
clover on your head.",,While I was growing up I lived outside a small town
in the Fraser Valley, just above the forty ninth parallel in British Columbia.
Back then, that was 3 miles from town. I just had to cross the road to find
bush to build forts in, and a small river to swim in. Our yard, and my
grandfather's Saskatchewan farmer know how, supported a big vegetable garden,
as well as several fruit trees, and a variety of yummy berries. Although the
thorns are wicked, my favorite were (and still are) the wild blackberries,
alas they don't grow at the fifty third parallel where I currently reside.
Our lawn back then was a conglomeration of grass, clover, plantain,
dandelions, chickweed, and a few other plants commonly known as weeds. I often
went barefoot in the grass.When I was older I lived in the city where there
was plenty of concrete, not much grass, still a few dandelions and I almost
never got to go barefoot outdoors.Now, once again I live in the country. The
difference being that it's fifty-five kilometers from town. There is bush
on my property. I could build forts if I wanted to. I manage to grow a few
vegetables and berries in my garden and greenhouse. My lawn is a
conglomeration of grass, hawkweed, clover, plantain, dandelions and a host
of other plants such as yarrow, commonly referred to as weeds. In addition
I have fields with mullein, goldenrod, nettle, oxeye daisies and buttercup.
My free berries are Saskatoon's and bog blueberries. I have ventured barefoot,
but hawkweed is tough on the feet.When I moved here and started looking around
at the native plants, I was delighted to find plants I hadn't seen since I
was a child. One of my first purchases was a book on native plants with
wonderful color pictures so I could identify my flora. You see in the
intervening years I had learned that many of the plants people call weeds
are actually herbs. Many of these plants have medicinal uses and can also
be food.Those pesky dandelions are spring's first salad greens, they make
a wonderful natural dye for wool, and some books still list them as digestive
aids.Plantain is not so desirable a salad green with its slightly laxative
effect, but the crushed leaves provide relief from insect stings and the roots
can be chewed to diminish toothache.I find yarrow a pretty little plant with
its heads of tiny white flowers and feathery leaves. This perennial herb has
been used as a wound healer for centuries. Science has found that an alkaloid
from this plant makes blood clot faster. It also contains helpful
anti-inflammatory compounds, which supports its traditional use on wounds.I
love the yellow flowers of mullein. My books tell me it can be used to relieve
cough, sore throat and reduce congestion. If memory serves I believe mullein
is also known as candlewick plant and when dried makes a dandy torch.Gardeners
know that clover returns nutrients to the soil so it makes a good green manure
and the flowers supply nectar for the bees. Who doesn't like honey, itself
a natural healing agent.Those nasty stinging nettles tip us off to the
presence of iron and fertile soil where they grow, and their high vitamin
C content may be the reason they have been used as a spring tonic. Cooking
them like kale or spinach removes the sting and different parts of the plant
provide both a yellow and a green dye. They also host several beneficial
insects.Goldenrod has some unproven traditional uses but we know for sure
that it makes a great dye, supplying the crafter with various shades of
yellow.I haven't had much luck growing roses here, so I devote small plots
to the wild ones. The aroma in spring is divine, the petals are slightly
astringent and I'm sure you've heard of rose water, a common ingredient in
homemade and natural hand lotions. The petals can also be chewed to a bubblegum
consistency I'm told. The bright red rosehips are higher in vitamin C than
oranges, and are also rich in A, B, E, K and pectin. They can be used to make
tea or jelly, and you can substitute them for cranberries in sauce and relish
recipes.There are so many great, free medicinal plants growing at my house.
I feel fortunate that my friend Cindy, the herbalist, keeps quizzing me on
what certain plants are for. With her help I keep finding more uses for the
"weeds" in my own backyard.,,Yes, if you go back in history there were
superstitions on a lot of different things. One of the beliefs goes to the
wedding flowers used. Here are some of the flowers and the meanings that were
believed to be associate with them.Chrysanthemums- This flower was used to
show truth.,Clover- Clovers have always been a sign of good luck. It didn't
even require a four-leaf clover.,Daisies- Daisies have a meaning of
gentleness.,Fern- Fascination has been incorporated with using
fern.,Forget-me-nots- True love is strong with the forget-me-nots as part
of your wedding flower bouquet.,Ivy- Ivy has the sign of fidelity associated
with it.,Red Roses- Red roses are a sign of everlasting love. Red roses have
always been a favorite of many brides,White Roses- The white rose is a symbol
of innocent love. White roses are carried by many brides as a sign of
purity.,Yellow Roses- Devotion and friendship have been the meaning of the
yellow roses.,Red and white rosestogether are a sign of unity. When a bride
carries red and white roses she declares an everlasting love that is
pure.Although these are the meaning of these flowers according to old
superstition, many brides choose flowers that are in season. By taking the
flowers that are in bloom at your wedding time, you will save money and have
nicer looking wedding flowers.The flowers that are in season include:Spring-
A good choice for your spring wedding would be tulips or daffodils. These
can be in beautiful, bright colors. Tulips are so varied today that you are
sure to find something that will be perfect for your colors.,Summer- Oh yes,
roses are prominent during the summer months. If you have relatives with
roses, they will be in bloom during the summer months. You may even find a
bouquet ready for the picking.,Fall- The wildflowers come out this time of
year. A fun playful arrangement can be made with wildflowers.,Winter - All
yes the carnations can be used for these months. Carnations are a strong flower
and you can even dye them if you can't find the color you like.Flowers are
an important part of your wedding. I hope this gives you some idea of the
flowers you can use. If you are using live flowers you will want to consider
what is in season. By having the flowers that are in bloom you will save money.
You will also have the nicest looking flowers. Just as buying tomatoes in
the winter, you won't get near the taste as if you bought them in the summer
when they are plentiful. They will cost more in the winter, but the taste
isn't like summer. Flowers are the same.Pretty flowers will be those in
season. Enjoy your special day with nice wedding flowers.,,In many
industrialized countries, menopause can be a time of great discomfort and
stress. Menopause is not a disease, to be viewed as something to be 'treated',
but a passage in life from childbearing years. The symptoms American women
may experience include hot flashes, mood swings, irregular bleeding, memory
problems, decreased sexual interest and other changes that effect the
enjoyment of sex. Although dietary habits and amount of activity a woman
engages in can decrease many of these problems, genetics and previous health
can also play a role in how severe the symptoms can be for a woman.Multiple
studies today indicate that taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may not
be as safe as previously believed. As just one example, in July, 2002, the
Women's Health Initiative Study published results that demonstrated that the
risks of HRT outweighed the benefits. Now more and more women entering
menopause are considering 'natural' solutions to resolving uncomfortable
symptoms of this life transition.There are three particular herbs of interest
when entering menopause. They include Black Cohosh, Chaste Tree Berry and
Red Clover.Black CohoshBlack Cohosh is also known as Black Snakeroot,
Bugwort, Rattleweed, Snakeroot, among other names. Black Cohosh was first
used medicinally by Native Americans who introduced it to European colonists.
Do not confuse black Cohosh with two unrelated plants, Blue Cohosh and White
Cohosh.Black Cohosh is one of the most popular herbal remedies for menopausal
symptoms. Overall, the research supports that using Black Cohosh can help
reduce menopause-related hot flashes. The research is a bit mixed on exactly
how Black Cohosh works and if it has estrogen-like activity. Some research
does show that in any estrogen-like activity, this activity does not pertain
to the reproductive organs, such as breast, endometrium, and ovaries. A big
question for women going into menopause is whether this is a safe herb for
women with a history of cancer; the research generally says it is. However,
for all women, this herb should not be taken for unlimited amounts of
time.There are also concerns of liver toxicity with the use of Black Cohosh.
Until more is known, anyone who wishes to take Black Cohosh should consult
their health practitioner and monitor their liver function to be on the safe
side. It would also be wise to avoid taking it along with other herbs that
may increase the risk of liver damage, which include androstenedione,
chaparral, comfrey, DHEA, germander, kava, niacin, pennyroyal oil, red yeast,
and others.Remifemin, a branded black Cohosh product, has been used in Germany
since the mid-1950s to manage menopause. Research that has been done generally
has used either Remifemin or two other products produced by Enzymatic Therapy
and Phytopharmica.As mentioned earlier, before taking this and most other
supplements, make sure to discuss them with your doctor, particularly if you
are taking any prescription medications or have any medical conditions. All
herbs do have various interactions with other substances.Chaste Tree
BerryChaste Tree Berry is also known as Vitex, Chinese Vitex, Hemp Tree, and
Mang Jing Zi, among others. An interesting bit of history is that historians
say that monks chewed Chaste Tree parts to make it easier to maintain their
celibacy.This herb has been most often recommended for relieving symptoms
related to premenstrual syndrome (PMS), such as bloating, headaches and
cramping. Although this is where most of the research has focused, it is now
being studied to see if it can help with menopausal symptoms as well, and
has also become quite popular for this use although there have only been three
studies looking into how it could help with hot flashes in menopause.The
therapeutic effects of Chaste Tree Berry have primarily been attributed to
its indirect effects on various neurotransmitters and hormones. It seems to
increase levels of progesterone and decrease levels of estrogen.
Theoretically, Chaste Tree Berry might interfere with the action of dopamine
antagonists such as antipsychotic drugs due to dopaminergic effects of Chaste
Tree Berry. It is believed that this herb could interfere with any
hormone-related medications. Finally, there is a report that some women who
were receiving invitro fertilization procedures and taking Chaste Tree Berry
were unable to get pregnant. Consequently, if you are taking any medications
or have a history of any medical conditions, speak to your health professional
before starting this herb.This is an herb that is not recommended for women
with a history of any hormone-related cancers. However, for others it does
appear to be safe. So, particularly for women who suffer from PMS or have
mild menopausal-related hot flashes without a history of cancer, this could
be an effective herbal remedy.Red CloverOther names for Red Clover include
Genistein, Meadow Clover, Purple Clover, Trifolium, among others. Do not
confuse Red Clover with Sweet Clover, Soy or Liverwort, however.As a food,
Red Clover is considered safe. Medicinally, there have only been four studies
on Red Clover for menopause and three of these showed no benefit. Research
has considered a possible blood cholesterol-lowering affect, decreasing
prostrate size, and perhaps a positive effect on cancer, but research has
not definitively supported any of these benefits, yet.There is some evidence
that red clover isoflavones can inhibit oxidative and conjugative metabolism.
The list of possible drug and herbal interactions is so large that the best
recommendation is to never consider this herb without a long discussion with
your doctor, or avoid this herb completely.This is an herb that appears to
be safest when eaten as opposed to taken as a nutrition supplement. Although
it could be safe for healthy persons with no medical history or on medications
or other herbs, it does not appear to relieve any menopause symptoms. It also
is an herb recommended to be avoided by any woman with a history of cancer.We
have just reviewed three popular herbs taken to relieve menopause symptoms.
Of the three, the one with the best safety and effectiveness profile is Black
Cohosh. Chaste Tree Berry has been shown to be most effective for PMS and
should not be taken by women with a history of breast cancer. Red Clover
appears to be something safer to eat than take as a supplement and should
be avoided by women with a history of cancer, as well as people on any other
medication or herbal product. Something that I hope readers were able to
realize is that although herbs are a natural form of medication, they still
do work like drugs and should be taken as seriously as prescription
medications are. Interactions are possible with all substances and before
taking any herbal product, I highly recommend that you consult with a
healthcare professional with adequate education and background to help you
make an informed decision on how to best handle symptoms.Finally, it's
important to point out that in some societies there is not even a word for
menopause. Women pass through this stage of life without notice. This makes
it very clear that lifestyle has much to do with how a woman experiences this
period of time in her life. If you currently suffer from symptoms of menopause,
there are several things that you should evaluate. These include:The amounts
of fruits, vegetable and whole grains you eat daily,Your intake of saturated
fat, animal products and refined foods,Your alcohol intake and smoking
habits,Regular exercise habits.Each of these factors plays a large role in
not only your health but how you experience the journey through menopause.,
particularly for women who suffer from PMS or have mild menopausal-related
hot flashes without a history of cancer, which supports its traditional use
on wounds, but also its blossoms, The petals can also be chewed to a bubblegum
consistency I'm told,I haven't had much luck growing roses here. These
include:The amounts of fruits, furniture. they may have associated a certain
flower with a memory of some favorite saint or martyr,This is an herb that
is not recommended for women with a history of any hormone-related cancers,
A big question for women going into menopause is whether this is a safe herb
