Simple Shui – GIFT WELL this holiday season!

Between now and the next new moon, it is holiday a go go.

If you’re curating ideas for everyone on your list, how about a shui gift guide?

YES, you say?

FABBY, I say!

So, limber up + let’s do this, okay?

One of my favorite things to wrap + give is linen. What’s so shui spectacular about it?

All fabrics have a signature frequency. And linen from flax has been studied as helping us fall asleep faster.

Sleep deeper. Wake up more refreshed.

Linen filters noise + dust + chemical exposure, keeping the air around us high vibe healthy. Linen won’t soak up static electricity and doesn’t contribute to allergies. Plus, it’s great for anti-inflammatory conditions. the term lingerie originates from when people once wore linen under their clothing. {how’s that for chicka-chicka-shui-bow-wow?} And, it is believed to enhance our own light vibration. In a super quick comparison: cotton has a frequency of 40 units of energy whereas flax-linen carries 5000.*

What does this all mean? in shui, the closer we are to something, the bigger its influence in our lives. So, any spot o’linen is a very, very good thing for our homes.

here are my favorite ways to use linen around our home:

{1} Linen napkins are easy + inexpensive. they are an instant upgrade to any place setting and make mealtime feel exceptionally inviting + cozy.

{2} linen tablecloth softens table edges and absorbs moody vibes that sometimes emerge during gatherings. and, it can be a festive backdrop for entertaining spreads or warm things up when it’s more intimate dining.

{3} If you know someone with crafting skills, linen fabric invites creative genius to unleash itself. how about a large DIY corkboard to pin inspiration on for your BIG twenty fifteen goals?

{4} A linen apron suggests the possibility of cooking + baking + creative deliciousness. it beckons us into our kitchen {a room strongly associated with wealth} which is an awesome way to encourage someone to stoke their prosperity. la-la-LOVE!

{5} I adore comfy pajamas, and i relish crawling into bed every night. what makes both even better is swaddling myself in linen. and restoration hardware honestly holds court here. Whether you pick up a pair of PJs or splurge on sheets {they are an investment. worth every cent}, you simply cannot go wrong.

No matter the gift, linen only gets softer + smoother with each wash. so, it is the ultimate token of appreciation + affection because it simply improves with age.  And very few things these days can boast that confidently. whether it’s decking the table or snuggling us into a sweet slumber, linen works like a charm for anyone on your list. And maybe, just maybe, it is the perfect dose of good cheer to treat yourself to now or anytime in the year ahead.

*I learned about linen from M. Carol Assa + her studies with Dr. Heidi Crawford-Yellen.

Always, GIFT WELL this holiday season!  @simple_shui #fengshui @AYRIAL7
