Why We Love Daisies & Our Daisy Duke Blue Floral Yoga Mat

It's officially Spring! With spring comes the blooming of your favorite flowers. But one flower stands above all for us - Daisies. As one of the prettiest, humblest, and most abundant flowers, daisies are Yoga Strong's favorite flower, which is why we launched the Daisy Duke blue floral yoga mat. Why is the daisy our favorite flower you might ask? Here are 4 reasons why we love the Daisy - 

1) Composite Flower - 

Daisies are considered composite flowers, since they actually consist of two flowers combined into one. The inner section is called a disc floret, and the outer petal section is called a ray floret. This goes hand in hand with our Composite Technology of the Daisy Duke blue floral yoga mat. Composite is a key word of our mission, and represents our commitment to a happier you. Plus, daisies are pretty, right? 

2) Love 

Daisies are also considered a representation of love. Since their 2 composite parts blend so well together, daisies have become a common symbol of the union of 2 parts in love. And love is a big reason why we do what we do at Yoga Strong. Love is the reason why we offer a 100% Happiness Guarantee on all our products. Love is the reason we have an eco-friendly initiative. Love is why we are unrivalled in our commitment to YOU. And we love daisies and our Daisy Duke blue floral yoga mat. So there's that. 

3) Language 

We've all at some point said "Oopsy Daisy" when making a mistake, right?  Did you ever think where the phrase came from? The phrase “ups-a-daisy” was used in the 1800s by adults when children fell, encouraging them to get back up. This has since evolved  into the current phrases “whoops-a-daisy” or “oopsy daisy,” used after a mistake. The innocence and lightheartedness of the phrase lends to the origins of daisies and the inner child in all of us. 

4) Medicinal Benefits 

Ever eaten a daisy? Maybe when you were 5 playing in the grass perhaps? If you haven't, you're missing out! Daisies have medicinal properties and can be eaten, especially great as an addition to salads. Daisy teas are often used to treat bronchitis, coughs, inflammation, and many other conditions. Next time you're feeling a little sick, reach for our favorite flower for some holistic benefits. Wild daisy flowers might also even be applied to wounds on the skin for healing. Please remember, do not eat your Daisy Duke blue floral yoga mat though.
