Hearts represent romance and love. But where did the shape come from? The origin of the heart shape can be traced back to an ancient plant called silphium. The Greeks and Romans used the herb as a spice, medicine, and a form of birth control. People would consume the plant as a form of contraception.
Silphium is a relative of fennel and had a heart shape (see silphium coin image pictured). The plant was extinct by first century A.D. due to its popularity. Today the silphium plant is similar in heart shape, but more oblong. Another theory is that scientists described the human heart as having two chambers and a dent in the middle, thus describing and creating the heart shape that we know of today.
Nowadays, the heart represents love and adoration. Millions of people send heart emojis and texts every single day. It’s part of our culture to show appreciation, fondness, and even sympathy with a digital heart.
If you want to don hearts this Valentine’s Day, here are some swoon-worthy V-Day inspired leggings. Put them on and give your workout a dose of all the self-love! ❤️
