This is a classical example of feng shui in action, meaning using the subtle energy effects of specific remedies to create good energy and achieve a favorable emotional response.
Feng shui-wise, I would highly encourage you to use the power of scents in your house even when you have no plans for selling it. Are you actually aware of how your house smells? Ask a friend or a neighbour and you might be surprised by the answer (hopefully, surprised in a good way!)
In feng shui we know that scents are very powerful, so different scents can be used for different purposes. You can transform the energies in a subtle way to achieve the desired results, as everything is energy.
- Kids are too cranky? Drop a couple of chamomile or lavender essential oils in an oil diffuser and watch your children gradually calm down. No need to keep repeating the same words over and over again, let the scents do the job!
- Need to stay up late working on a project? Choose rosemary, peppermint, eucalyptus or lemongrass essential oils for your home office to keep you awake while you have to work late at night.
- In the mood for love? Ylang-ylang, sandalwood, rose and jasmine are the classical essential scents for a sensual bedroom. You can also use vanilla, neroli, lavender or experiment with any other pure scents that awaken your sensuality.
Be smart and go for pure and natural essential oils. You can find inexpensive oils at your natural food store, or buy them on-line (compare prices.)
Working with pure scents to create specific moods/energies is an easy choice to keep the feng shui in your home fresh and happy. And you do deserve a happy home, don't you?
