How do you bring a strong presence of the fire feng shui element when you need it? And why would you need a good fire element in the first place? Well, a good feng shui house needs all 5 elements, but in different proportions in different areas of the house.

If you are familiar with the Bagua, or the feng shui energy map, you know that these specific needs are defined by the feng shui element of the Bagua area. As a rule, the fire element is most welcomed in the feng shui Bagua areas of South, Southwest, Northeast, and Center.

It is always best to express the feng shui elements subtly, with visually pleasing and aesthetically appropriate items that go well with your home or office decor.

Let's look into several easy ways easy to decorate with popular decor items/feng shui products that best express the fire feng shui element energy.

    Other than an actual fireplace, the next best thing close to the actual fire energy is candles, of course. You can easily bring a strong fire element presence into your home with many candles skillfully placed where most needed. To amplify the fire element energy of the candles, either choose candles in the fire element colors (red, purple, yellow, or orange) or go for candle holders in these colors.

    Candles are the most obvious expression of the fire feng shui element (after a wood fireplace, of course) and must always be welcomed in any home. They purify and calm the energy, just like a good fire does, so do not neglect the power of these little beauties.
