7 ways to refresh your room with plants using Feng Shui

What would you do if the air in your house is getting dull? If you feel that ventilation is not effective, plants with relaxation (calm tension) effects are recommended.

It seems true that you feel at ease when having plants, that they can be great interiors as well as healing fatigue by producing negative ions. However, there are many kinds of plants that it might be difficult to choose.

So, let’s use Feng Shui to select plants, have comfortable air in your room, and spend fresh days.



7 ways to refresh your room with plants using Feng Shui

 

-Select plants with their effect


Plants release “phytoncide”, which is a substance with anti-bacterial and anti-insects effect. They also produce negative ions, widely known as to have healing effect. There are many other functions, but I want to talk about the effect of cleaning air.

Many plants work as air cleaner. Toxic substances to human and animals are sometimes necessary nutrients for plants, and they absorb these substances through water and degrade them.

Functions differ with plants’ colors. Many of you might want to have colorful plants for your interior, but as green is considered to be good for eyes, plants are effective for eye fatigue. Therefore, select plants full of green.

 

-Select using theory of five elements and Yin-Yang


As choosing plants using Feng Shui, please pay attention to shapes of leaves. Plants with sharp leaves release sharp energy. They are not appropriate to place near bed or chairs, where people are often around. Good examples are plants with round leaves.

Round leaves will calm our feeling, so we can relax by having them aside. When choosing plants, take into consideration the directions they grow.

Leaves growing upward have “Yang (positive)” character and release active energy. On the other hand, plants with leaves growing downward have “yin (negative)” character and calm down our feeling. When buying new plant, please look at shapes of leaves.

 

-Put them at effective place


Please think about where to put your plants. First of all, place them at the corner of living room or each rooms. Energy is likely to be stagnated at the corner of the room, so plants with pointed leaves are recommended. It is same for long hallways. Plants make the flow of energy better.

High plants in a kitchen can keep energy of fire and water stable. Putting high plants at the north side of bathroom will prevent the room from having yin energy and make it comfortable. Bedroom absorbs energy, so plants with round leaves which release yin energy to make us calm are recommended.

For security, placing plants with sharp needles such as cactus by the window is effective. They release sharp energy that keeps crimes and troubles away. Also, choose plants with suitable sizes for each places you are thinking to place them.

 

-Plants for north


Next, let’s talk about suitable plants for each direction. I hope this will be helpful for those who are not sure what to buy. “Ivy” grows its vines upward and therefore has yang energy, so it will remove stagnation of air in toilet or bathroom and creates comfortable atmosphere.

Same for “spider plant”, so place it to north where you want to refresh air. “Begonia” is low plant, and has yin energy and energy of soil. It will create quiet atmosphere, and putting it to northwest or north east will increase its effect of refreshing air.

 

-Plants for east


One of the plants suitable for east is “dracaena”. It is a plant with yang energy, and has sides of fire and tree. It will prevent stagnation of energy when placing it at the corner of a room.

“Hyacinth” is said to have yang energy, as it grows straight upward. It is recommended for women, because its colorful flowers grow together and will beautify a room.

“Rapis humilis” has sharp leaves arranged radially, and has energy of fire, tree, and yang. It will stimulate stagnated energy by placing it at the corner of a room.

 

-Plants for west


“Cyclamen” is good to place to west. Because of its low height, it has energy of soil. There are variety of colors, so recommended as interior as well. Choose warm colors when you want to be motivated, and choose white when wanting to relax and calm down.

“Banyan” is called as a tree of euphoria, and has energy of money for its round shape. It refreshes air as well as improves luck of money.

Also, “Spathiphyllum” has energy of money, and it is most effective for neutralizing electromagnetic waves among all plants. If you feel bad air and don’t feel well, having Spathiphyllum might make you feel refreshed.

 

-Place plants for south


“Monstera” is good to place to south. Its big and unique leaves has energy of fire and yin, and best plant when you want to settle your mind. The next is “dracaena”.

This plant has energies of yang, tree and fire, and you can avoid stagnation of air by putting it at the corner of the room. It will circulate good energy and release comfortable air. The best directions to place it are to south, southwest or southeast.

“African violet” has leaves growing to a shape of a star, which represent energy of fire. Its purple flowers are believed to attract evaluation from outside. This is also suitable to put to south, southwest or southeast.

 

I hope this article helps you to choose appropriate plants for you.

Just having plants will make your balcony look stylish and make air clean. Not only popular plant with just green, but there are also many plants with small and beautiful flowers.

Select ones you like, and it is also important not to forget taking care of them. Dead plants look awful, and no healing effect is expected.

Therefore, plants are recommended for those who want to change daily habit. Easy habits such as watering plants will improve your lifestyle. Enjoy choosing plants, and please do your best to spend comfortable life.
