A very touching Remembrance and Comfort Bouquet can be made from herbs and flowers to express our feelings of loss. It can also serve as a gift of comfort for someone who may have suffered a miscarriage, loss of a baby, a parent or other loved one.
What you'll need
Calendula or pot marigold
Raffia for tying
Gather together the thyme, rosemary and calendula into a bunch. You can either tie with raffia for hanging upside down, or you can tie loosely for placing in a vase as a bouquet. Either way works well. Attach a card with this written inside:
From my heart, I am bringing you:
-- Thyme for courage to see you through a difficult time.
-- Rosemary for remembrance of (insert the name of the person or child who passed away or "your baby")
-- Calendula for the raising of your spirits and joy as you heal.
If you cannot find calendula you can also use pink roses which you would substitute in your note:
-- Pink Roses for thoughts of happiness as you heal.
The same theme can be used to make a simple wreath using fresh or silk flowers, with a grapevine wreath as a base. Tie the gift card to the wreath and wrap in a pretty box with tissue paper.
This a special gift of remembrance and comfort that can convey what we may have trouble expressing during a time of loss or tragedy to someone we care about.
