Bubble Fountain Right Angle

These days, people are constantly looking for new ways to relieve stress and create more Zen in their lives. Another thing that is becoming more popular, is decorating a specific space in your home that is used solely for relaxation purposes. Off the top of your head, you can probably already think of a few things that you would love to have in a space like that, but we’ve put together three items that you shouldn’t leave off that list!

  1. Natural scents – Fresh scents can be calming enough to put you to sleep, and invigorating enough to wake you up in the morning. We recommend essential oils, soy or beeswax candles, or a homemade linen spray. These products can be found almost anywhere. They even sell beeswax candles at Target!
  2. Houseplants – Green is the most relaxing color to the human eye, and this is just one of the many reasons why plants are often included in Zen décor. Another great benefit to including plants, is that they provide oxygen. Be sure to avoid adding any plants that require special maintenance or give off unpleasant scents. Terrariums and bonsai trees are seen a lot in Zen inspired environments.

  3. Water elements – Water tends to have an incredibly calming effect to it, and helps to purify the air. Our bubble fountains are not only mesmerizing to the eye, but the fountains also create soothing sounds when the air pump pushes bubbles through the airway. Many customers describe it as a pleasant white noise that makes it easier for them to relax. One of our most popular models, and one that is currently on sale, is our 500WM. With this model, you can control the lighting effects with an app on your SmartPhone!
