feng shui tips for lavender use Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils, as well as one of the most popular dried flowers (definitely the case where dried flowers can't possibly be bad feng shui!)

I absolutely love lavender, and buy bunches of it each year directly from a lavender farm. This year I could not make it to the farm, so am ordering lavender on-line. I also use lavender essential oil (compare prices) daily. There are so many uses for lavender - from the obvious one, such as the great look, feel & scent of lavender to the one I use often in my home - to burn one or two stems of dried lavender to clear the space. It is a quick and easy feng shui space clearing tip, try it and you will see how lovely it smells and how calmer the place feels after this quick lavender smudging.

You can also use lavender incense sticks (compare prices), or go for a natural candle with lavender essential oil (compare prices) - it will do wonders for your bedroom or your bathroom.

Winter is just around the corner; it is the season when our homes are becoming slightly disconnected from the vibrant (but cold!) outside energy. Be sure you take good care of the energy of your home - with candles, natural scents and beauty all around you!

The smudging suggestion is really great. I have used sage before but never any other herbs. I can imagine that this smells great. Does it clear the space in a different way or do different herbs give different vibes?

Lavender brings a very sweet, peaceful energy that is great for daily energy clearing. Very calming and soothing, as well as relaxing. Very light, too. Excellent in the evening.

Sage has stronger purifying effects. It cleares the energy of any given space on a deeper level. Sage definitely works best when the space needs good energy clearing, i.e when negative emotions & experiences have accumulated in a space.

I like to use them both, but I find myself using lavender much more often.
