Clean Air, Clean Health
Feng Shui is an ancient form of art that is designed to create a positive flow of energy in the home. There are a number of different areas that you can affect with Feng Shui, one of them being your health.
One of the main things that can affect your health indoors is the quality of the air that you breathe in. Believe it or not, pollution in the home is much, much worse than it is outside, and when you think about the amount of time we spend inside our homes, that is not good news.
So, how can Feng Shui help you to improve the quality of the air you breathe? Very simply, with the use of houseplants. These plants will remove toxins and pollutants from the air, increasing the amount of clean oxygen. And, on top of that, they will look great as well!
