Peonies, soft and delicate with their budded collections of shaded pink petals, have a tantalizingly sweet essence to their beauty. Blooming towards the end of spring when nature is beginning to come alive yet again, peonies are both alluring in their intoxicating scent of familiar sweetness and in their eye-catching imagery. Known for their long medicinal history in Chinese culture, the sweetness of the peony is not only wonderful to smell, but also does wonders in the body as well. Whether it be crushing up and consuming part of the peony root, or simply ingesting the fragrance of the peony itself, the wonders of this flower far exceed its looks.
Primarily, the peony flower is used for its powerful natural anti-inflammatory properties found upon digesting parts of the plant itself. Containing high amounts of glucosides, agents known for reducing inflammation, the peony can help in stabilizing the body and reducing areas of pain and inflammation all around. Along with this, peony has hepatoprotective properties that can be harnessed upon ingestion; this means that the peony is extremely beneficial in aiding and supporting liver health. Besides the health supportive factors when digesting this flower, there are also considerable benefits when simply smelling the essence of this flower as well. Peony is known for its therapeutic affects, as well, that can act as a sedative in a way and help in calming the mind and fighting against depression and anxiety. For an added benefit, peony supports healthy brain functions, improved memory and cognition, and overall mood. One of the easiest and quickest ways to benefit from these properties is simply by smelling its beautiful scent! This is were TLC, and their wide array of elegant scents, is here to help!
