Plants are amazing species, there's no doubt it—is there anything they can't do? They have the power to drive away household pests, purify the airput you in a cheerful mood and even bring positive vibrations into your humble abode. 

In Feng Shui, it is believed that the best living spaces are the ones with the most peaceful and free-flowing energy. When it is blocked by an opposing element, you tend to feel down and uninspired, too. Luckily, there are plants that can keep the bad juju away. To maintain a happy and vibrant home, make sure to have at least one of these green wonders on your windowsill: 

Orchid

Aside from attracting positive energy and breathing lively energy into tired spaces, orchids are also said to be great mood boosters because of its sweet scent. For those who have trouble breathing or maintaining a sense of calm, orchids can help, too, as it releases a lot of oxygen—especially at night when it's time for rest and recreation. 

Cactus

Succulents have become popular for adding an invigorating touch to any type of space, but did you know that it can ward off feelings of envy and malice, too? It is said that these prickly plants can absorb the bad electromagnetic energy from mal-intentioned people. 

Jasmine

There's more to jasmine than brewing it to become a relaxing type of tea. This blooming herb attracts positive energy, helps strengthen relationships and build romance in a chaotic home. Its pleasant aroma can help soothe a stressed mind, too. 

RL Tip: Some say that for jasmine to be an effective absorber, it should be placed near a south-facing window (if displayed indoors) and east or northeast area (if planted in the garden). 

Rosemary

Rosemary isn't limited to adding flavor to your cooking, it also promotes physical and mental well-being by clearing the air of harmful toxins. The aroma it emits is said to reduce fatigue, fight anxiety, improve memory and treat insomnia, too—there's no reason not to have at least one pot at home.
