What are the possible benefits we can obtain from lilies?
Present in lily flowers is active glycosides and flavonoids which tend to stimulate the arteries and cause them to dilate. They may help regulate our heart rate thereby allowing our heart to function more efficiently. Moreover, the flower also minimizes the irritability of the myocardium without actually resulting in an increase in the oxygen level that is essential to function by the heart muscle (2).
The essential oil from the beautiful flower helps regenerate skin cells and makes the skin smooth, supple, and free of blemishes. It is alkalizing on the skin, regulates pH levels, and prevents fine lines, wrinkles, and premature ageing. Furthermore, the oil has moisturizing and soothing properties which help to prevent dry skin and skin cracks (3).
We can actually mix lily flower oil with coconut oil and massage it all over the desired area.
