8 indoor plants for positive energy

Spending time in nature has been linked to reducing stress levels and tension, so it seems a no-brainer that indoor plants will help do the same. Plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. So whilst we are sleeping, indoor plants are refreshing the air.

Enrich your surrounding with potted plants. Not only do they look good, but they will be serving a purpose – that is, bring in positive energy.

Today I have 8 indoor plants for positive energy…


“Jade by the door, poor no more!” That’s what the feng shui lovers say! They are considered a “lucky plant” or “money tree”. You can’t say no to that! The money tree is used as a feng shui cure to attract the energy of wealth and prosperity. The money tree plant is supposed to produce positive vibrations that will bring prosperity to the owner of the house or business. It is best placed at the front door and at the back door.


Rosemary purifies the air. It will keep the air free of harmful toxins and promotes physical and mental health. A rosemary plant inside will need a sunny spot and cool-ish temperatures. Don’t over-water it though. The smell of the plant is the best part! It can enhance mood, improve memory and bring inner peace. Trim back after flowering and remember you can use for cooking too!

Peace Lily

I have a Peace Lily in the South East corner of my home (which happens to be in my home office). They are said to bring abundance and peace. They can also detoxify the space and help eliminate stress and headaches. These plants are easy to care for. They like shaded or even dark environments best so this is an easy indoor plant to look after.


The lucky bamboo plant! It’s said to bring luck in health and love life and is very low maintenance plant. You can place it in any corner of the room which low lighting. It needs a lot of water so make sure it’s always quite wet. This plant has been used as a symbol of prosperity and good fortune. It is said that odd number of bamboo stalks are considered to be luckier.


Another plant that is known for bringing positive energy at home is Orchid. Greeks believe that orchid is associated with virility and fertility which makes it great for newly married couples. They require light moisture and very less maintenance. Its pleasant fragrance can uplift the mood of the people at home.

Aloe Vera

This plant is handy when it comes to soothing cuts and burns, but it can also help to monitor the air quality in your home. The plant can help clear the air of pollutants found in chemical cleaning products, and when the amount of harmful chemicals in the air becomes excessive, the plants’ leaves will display brown spots. It grows best with lots of sun.


I use Lavender essential oil for relaxation and calming, so of course having a real life plant in your home can help with that too! It will need a sunny spot, and be well watered. This plant has a typical smell that will make you relax in your home like nowhere else. This will help you in controlling your emotions and will make better communication in your home.

Money Tree

Or Pachira aquatica is commonly referred to as the money tree! It is a type of bonsai tree that can grow quite high and looks stunning in a pot. The braided trunk and topiary leaves are a feature. It needs plenty of light, as well as consistent watering – but don’t drown it. A bit like how you’d water a fiddle leaf fig.

I’m going to rearrange a few of my plants today for better energy!

    I have over 100 house plants. I love them all. I grow all my veggies and I encourage others to do a same. I love that you know that the energy we surround ourselves with is the key to our mental, spiritual and emotional life. I took an organic gardening class 40 years ago. It changed my life.
