Powerful indoor plants that are known to bring you good health, love and good luck
It’s well-known that having plants in your home is as good for your health as your happiness.
Here we compiled a list of 10 plants and 2 herbs that are known to bring you good health, love and good luck.
1. The Feng Shui Money Tree
One of the most popular of plants in feng shui practices, The Money Tree is known for increasing and locking in, or securing, luck and prosperity for those who possess it. This ‘locking in’ is aptly symbolized by the braided trunk of the tree. What’s more is that this tree, under the right humid conditions, will both flower and produce edible nuts.
So even though it will never actually grow money, it certainly is a tree that keeps on giving.
2. Draecena, or, Lucky Bamboo
Now this is a plant with some history! Lucky bamboo has been used for over 5, 000 years in traditional feng shui practices. It is said to “bring a very peaceful and wise energy into your home.
It also teaches the ultimate wisdom: how to be flexible and hollow (open) on the inside, so that the spirit can freely flow and heal your being.
For all of those reasons and more, lucky bamboo is extremely popular in Western culture now, too. Offices and homes alike are adorned with the plant said to bring us health, love, and of course, luck. Aside from the promise of prosperity, this plant offers a vibrant green accent to any space.
3. Spathiphyllum, or, The Peace Lily
This deep green plant with gorgeous bright white blooms helps humans prosper by significantly improving their indoor air quality, helping to prevent asthma, headaches, chronic illness, cancers and more.
The Peace Lily does all that simply by being there in your home.
They remind us to let go of the stress that can build up in our day when the pressures of jobs and family mount. Peace lilies are great for offices to create a sense of calm during a hectic day or in bedrooms to provide a sense of tranquility and restful sleep. As a gift, peace lilies are a sign of good will.
4. Morning glory
Morning glories in the garden are said to bring peace and happiness and its seeds under your pillow encourage restful sleep free of nightmares.
These pretty summer flowers open their prolific bell-shaped blooms in the early morning before the summer’s midday heat, so it’s not surprisingly they have earned their reputation for helping to brighten your day.
5. Jade plant
The jade plant (crassula ovata) is another popular good luck charm in Asia thought to activate financial energies. This beautiful succulent has vibrant green leaves symbolic of growth and renewal, closely resembling jade coins, symbolic of wealth and prosperity.
Jade is a traditional gift for businesses and many business owners place a jade plant near the entrance, or in a southeast location to bring prosperity and success.
Lilies paired with lotus flowers bring luck and purity to a garden. Just be mindful that to maintain positive energy, you must remove wilted or spent flowers and trim any dead or dying parts from the plant.
Jasmine attracts love and money into your home, and encourages prophetic dreams! Jasmine oil is known for being one of the most powerful aphrodisiacs, so this is a fantastic plant for single babes or anyone wanting to keep the romance alive!
Jasmine flowers are often worn by high priestesses. Incredibly, jasmine flowers open at night, which, to my mind, makes them even cooler.
8. Lemon tree
As well as being bright and happy, lemons are a fantastic thing to have around the house!
They symbolise purification and friendship, and it’s said that if you wear diluted lemon oil during the full moon, it will help you attune with its energies.
9. Miniature roses
Roses are said to have the highest vibration of all living things.
They attract love, healing and luck, offer protection and healing, and help with divination of all kinds.
The colour of your rose has a meaning, too. White: Purifying and healing, positive energy. White with red details: Devotion and passion. Peach: Peace, spirituality and friendship. Pink: Romantic love, sweetness, fun and play.
They represent love: they attract love, soothe the soul, and deepen friendships. The ancient Greeks associated orchids with fertility and virility, which makes them a great gift for new parents!
In this list I would love to add two herbs as well.
Rosemary increases your brain power, can help you get a good night’s rest, and keep you youthful (well, so they say)!
This herb attracts love and encourages lust, has properties of protection and purification, helps with healing, and can even be used in exorcisms.
Sage is well-known for its qualities of protection. It also represents immortality, longevity, wisdom and the granting of wishes.
