What do we know about the philosophy behind Feng Shui and the role of fragrances on it?
Feng Shui is a philosophical method coming from China and consisting of harmonizing the environment that surrounds us so this environment has got a positive effect on ourselves and our visitors.
This method is usually practiced in different places: houses, offices, buildings, etc. Furthermore, the well-known five elements are essential for Feng Shui: water, metal, earth, fire and wood. They represent nature`s energy.
According to Feng Shui, the way we organize furniture, decoration and rooms -either at home, office or buildings- has got an effect on our mood and wellbeing. So, it is time to re-think how we dispose different objects in our surrounding environments.
You might be wondering what fragrances have to do with Feng Shui. Well, the scents we choose for our personal space or our company`s offices are also important to create pleasant atmospheres, rooms where we feel relaxed, we feel good. We have previously talked about the power of fragrances to create unique atmospheres. Hence, the value that fragrances add to the practice of Feng Shui.
Some scents have a pleasant effect on us, boost our energy, make us relaxed…Imagine then a room where everything is just in the right place and where the air is fragranced with scents like jasmine, lavender, peppermint, lemon or rose, depending on your emotions and your taste.
It is actually common that specific fragrances have an effect on our mood, on our feelings and emotions. This leads us to a practice called aromatherapy, which is based on the belief that various natural scents have an intrinsic ability to influence mood, cognition and health. For example, jasmine is used to relieve anger, increase confidence, ease depression and as aphrodisiac while lavender is good to relax and peppermint is best for relieving stress.
