6 Energy vampire – no. 5: Scents in your home

and the 5 elements

The 5 elements teaching in Feng Shui not only plays a key role in choosing colors and accessories, but also in the selection of the right scent.

For example, scents can be assigned to each individual element (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water) as well as yin and yang. The latter symbolize the opposing forces of heaven and earth and promote energy when they are in balance.

Once you have found your own Feng Shui room scent, it acts as a natural energy and harmony booster in everyday life.

Citrus scents invigorate and refresh. Floral scents, on the other hand, relax and calm. Tree fragrances such as sandalwood and myrrh have a regenerating and balancing effect, while earthy vanilla and honey notes can have a sensual and erotic effect.

To harness the full power of scents, I recommend that you only use natural fragrances.
