Best herbs and flowers for love and romance

Herbs, plants, and flowers, historically symbolised devotion, love and romance. Mint and marigolds were woven into garlands and wreaths in ancient Athens. In Rome, wheat was for brides and rosemary for the grooms. European brides, during medieval times, used garlic and chives to ward away spirits that could disrupt their happiness. In Victorian times, roses, lavender, marjoram and pansies were popular amongst romantic couples. When these flowers were combined, along with other herbs, a formula for romantic success and contentment was created.
