Life Petals are red and gold petals with healing properties and are used as medicine on the Planet Avalice. In the Freedom Planet Series, they measure and replenish the Player's Health.
|Sash Lilac||7 Petals|
|Carol Tea||7 Petals|
|Milla Basset||4 Petals|
In Freedom Planet, It takes 2 Life Petals to fully replenish 1 unit of health and one hit will cost 1 unit of Health (Half unit in Casual Mode and one to two units in Hard Mode, depending on the attack). Life Petals can also be found in Life Flowers and dropped by certain enemies. If the Player has no Life Petals, then the gold bar on the Energy Meter will blink red. If the Player is hit without any Petals, they'll lose a Life and then respawn at the last checkpoint. If the Player's Life Meter is full, the Life Petals will count as 1 Crystal Shard per Petal. The Player's Petals can slowly regenerate on Casual and Easy Modes, but not on Normal and Hard. Also, they can be drawn in towards the Player if they're equipped with a Wood Shield.
Life Flowers are large flowers that contains Life Petals and are scattered throughout each Stage. Each Flower contains 6 Petals, which can be obtained simply by breaking it open. Life Flowers can be picked up by Milla, who can throw it at enemies damage them. If playing as Lilac or Carol, a CPU-controlled Milla will provide the Player with Life Flowers in the following Stages:
During the Boss Fight with the Robopanther, Milla will throw Life Flowers at the Player from Torque's Plane.
During the Boss Fight with the Gunship, Milla will toss a Life Flower mid-fight, right before she appears to assist the Player.

Throughout the Stage, Milla will pop out of certain air ducts and drops a Life Flower near the Player.
|Sash Lilac||5 - 7 Petals|
|Carol Tea||5 - 7 Petals|

|Neera Li||5 - 7 Petals|
In Freedom Planet 2, Life Petals are now similar to that of a meter, where the Player can take multiple hits before losing a whole Life Petal.
