Springtime is here: The symbols and essential oils for spring time

Spring Joy and Love

Themes of rebirth and renewal often use symbols from the spring season. Spring also refers to love, hope, youth and growth.

Symbolism:
Spring represents bouncing, start of something new, new beginnings, progress, blossoming of new things, birth, new life and business.

8 Things That Come With Spring

Whatever the reason, spring is a wonderful season.

Here are 8 things that come with spring:

1. The Blossoming of Trees and Flowers

Springtime means that the trees and flowers come back to life again. After a dead winter, this is a time when we get to see the beautiful flowers blossom again.

2. Shorts, Shirts, and Sandals

With the warm weather, we can put away the coats, sweaters, and boots and take out our shorts, t-shirts, and sandals.

3. Ice Cream

What better dessert to eat in the warm spring weather than ice cream?

4. A Walk in the Park

The beauty of spring can be seen while taking a nice stroll in the park because the weather is just right, not too hot and not too cold.

5. Longer Days

In the winter, the days feel shorter since nighttime lasts the longest. With the arrival of spring, however, the days become longer with more sun time, in addition to daylight savings time.

6. Pollen Allergies

While springtime can mean beautiful things, it can also come with a few annoying things. One such example is pollen allergies. For those of us who have these allergies, we know very well that sneezing and red itchy eyes are not fun.

7. The Insects

Sometimes I wish it was winter again when I see a bee or a wasp swarming around gardens. Though, without them, it wouldn’t have been possible to have so many beautiful flowers and all the fresh air we breathe.

8. Rainy Days

Though we love the sunshine, spring also means it is going to rain on most days.

Despite some of the annoying things that spring brings, it brings out our inner happiness with Mother Nature. Out of the four seasons, spring is clearly the season with the most changes. Some even agree that it is the best season compared to summer, winter, or fall. Whatever the reason, spring is a wonderful season!
