The word “ikebana” is a Japanese term which is used to refer to the millennial art from this country of making floral arrangements.
This custom of mixing flowers and leaves in an artistic way comes from a tradition that is almost 2000 years old, when a floral offering was given to Buddha as a way of communicating with ancestors.
The tradition gradually began to lose its religious roots and now we have the ikebana that we know today: an activity that seeks harmony, serenity and beauty through floral compositions.
It has been proven that there are many benefits to floral decoration (ikebana):
- Looking at flowers improves mood as they are natural elements that transmit vital energy.
- Increases and improves concentration, patience, inner peace and natural agility.
- Promotes creativity and imagination. It relaxes the mind.
- A floral arrangement helps us to show emotions and feelings.
The main drawback to this millennial art is that the result is beautiful but ephemeral. Cut plants lose their beauty after a few days. However, science has again come to the rescue by turning floral compositions into long-lasting decorative elements.
