Ever heard of the phrase, “You are what you eat”? It’s true! That’s why the kitchen and stove play a crucial role that would directly impact the health of all household members. In fact, the impact on mothers’ health would be even greater.
When it comes to home fengshui, colour selection is important. Avoid using bright red in your kitchen, as this may cause you to have unstable emotions and gynaecological issues.
In particular, those whose Bazi has strong elements of Fire and Earth must pay even greater attention.
Keep sharp objects in their rightful place

As Marie Kondo said, “all items have their own place.” The same rule applies with regards to good home fengshui. Put away sharp objects that are not in use, and keep them out of sight.
Do not leave them lying around, as they are not good for energy and could be dangerous, especially when you have children around.
Way Fengshui’s Master Goh also advises not to place scissors or knives in the cabinet directly underneath the stove. This is one of the common reasons for health issues, especially for mothers. It’s time to put away your lethal kitchen tools and sharp stationeries!
Your stove position matters

While it may seem like a no-brainer to keep our spaces clean, especially the kitchen and stove where food is handled, there’s something even more important than the regular cleaning and maintenance.
As the stove position represents the mother’s health, the position and where it faces is extremely important. If unsure, it is best to consult a professional home fengshui practitioner before installing the stove or making any changes.
Good home fengshui matters
More than just a shelter, a home keeps you centered and good home fengshui helps to improve your luck and various aspects of your life such as family harmony and health, prosperity, career, etc.
