Gypsophila is also known as baby’s breath, a name which became popular in the late 1800s because of its delicate odour and bloom. It is a native of Eastern Europe, but nowadays grows happily all over the world and thrives in dry, sandy soil. Gypsophila literally translates as lover of chalk. Widely associated with innocence and ever lasting love, the flower is a firm florist’s favourite used in bridal bouquets and christenings. Gypsophila was a common ingredient in folklore medicines to treat coughs and colds, and their high saponin content is used in cleaning products, camera film emulsions and fire extinguishers. It is said to be the fairy’s favourite flower and can be used to attract their positive energies, it is also a powerful ingredient used in love spells and potions.
