flowersThese 5 easy and affordable decorating ideas will bring more positive, happy and healthy energy into your home today!

# 1-  Physically clean your home, then cleanse the energy of your spaces by burning scented candles or incense;

The best essential oil scents, used alone or in combination are :

  • White or Clary Sage
  • Sweet grass
  • Cedar
  • Lemon
  • Mint
  • Rosemary
  • Geranium 

After both cleansing processes are done, de-clutter and organize your rooms. This is one of the very best things you can do for yourself and your family to instantly lift your spirits  and invite more positive energy into your home.

#2- Bring nature inside with fresh flowers . Create an arrangement of cut fresh flowers (these are readily available and affordable at most grocery stores today). Place on your cocktail table or side table in your living area or on the dresser or night stand in your bedroom. I find the process of arranging the flowers to be very meditative and restful.

#3- Home fragrance. Fill your home with pleasant, memory evoking fragrances using scented room sprays, candles, potpourri or incense. When I smell the scent of roses or gardenias, I immediately think of my mother and happy childhood days; she always had a rose garden and several gardenia bushes so we always had bowls of gardenia blooms and/ or arrangements of roses throughout the house.

#4- Change your Lighting. Replace strategic light bulbs with “natural”, “full spectrum” or LED bulbs to bring the feeling of sunlight into your rooms. Up Lights on interior plants and trees also brighten those dark corners and spaces.

#5- Place a bowl of lemons or artfully arranged fresh fruit on your kitchen counter; a pleasure to behold and a flavorful and healthy addition to your menus and recipes!

I have taken my own advice and have cleaned, de-cluttered and organized my studio, which I’ve been meaning to do for months. I feel soooo much better and now it is a pleasure to walk into the space; like a breath of fresh air!

I hope you have enjoyed these 5 decorating ideas to bring more positive, happy and healthy energy into your home! I encourage you to try one or more of these today!!
