Feng Shui: Indoor Plants for Good Vibes
We all know that indoor plants are notorious for bringing life to a space, purifying the air, reducing stress and improving overall wellbeing. But what if we told you that plants have another secret power? Okay, it’s not entirely a secret because Feng Shui has been around for forever.
