Spring cleaning can be daunting; so this year we're taking a different approach. Using cues from traditional cultures, we put together a list of 4 major symbolic elements that can bring good vibes into our dwellings.
It's a no-brainer but what doesn't serve us, we should let go of. That could be a negative thought or a pair of jeans that no longer fit. Maybe it's time to put that clothing item or piece of home decor into a donation bag. As a tip: sometimes getting rid of physical things can be easier when you imagine another person benefiting from them rather than just throwing it away.
Essential oils can help clear negative energy and add bueno vibes to your home with the magic of aromatherapy. Lemongrass, when used through aromatherapy is known to ward off insects, reduce body aches, and internally help your digestive system. When mixed with geranium like in this natural room spray, they work together to clear the air and lift the spirit while alleviating anxiety and balancing hormones. Try using any stand-alone or combination of essential oils, fragrances or elixirs to bring in pleasant smells and beneficial energies into your casa.
If feng shui is something you are partial to, plants are known to be excellent feng shui for a home or office as they bring vibrant Chi, (good energy) into your space. Besides their contribution of chi to our home environments, the benefits of plants are endless. So adding a couple and placing them into your favorite plant container is a huge win.
Have you heard of Chromotherapy? Often referred to as color therapy, there is some evidence dating back thousands of years ago when ancient cultures of Egypt, China and India used this as a type of therapy for their bodies and dwellings. But for the minimalist out there — don't fret. You can still find benefits by simply switching out a few pillows, or a linen throw to add the vibrational benefits of color to your home.
