    The good feng shui bedroom energy is destroyed when these items are present in your bedroom.

    Open the windows often or use a good quality air-purifier to keep the air in your bedroom fresh and full of oxygen.

    Be mindful of the quality of air in your bedroom. You cannot have good feng shui in your bedroom if the air you breathe in is stale and full of pollutants. Please note, though, that plants in the bedroom are not good feng shui unless your bedroom is fairly large and the plants are located far from the bed.

    Essential oils can also help you purify the air in your bedroom, but be sure to choose actual essential oils (they have healing properties) vs. fragrance oils (which are mostly toxic).
