The Four Elements

The four elements - The ancient Greeks believed there were four elements everything was made up of; earth, water, air, and fire. This idea has been the cornerstone of philosophy, science, and medicine for two thousand years. The four elements can be represented in physical or non-physical forms (symbols) for different purposes. We've gathered the best in home and garden décor that you can incorporate into the nooks of your space that can help achieve balance and peace in your life.

EARTH - The Earth element has cleansing power. It symbolizes prosperity, fertiity, stability, orderliness, groundedness, nourishment, security, permanence, intuition,introspection, and wisdom. We suggest adding wood elements, living plants, and vessels that one can use to grow and display blooms and indoor trees. Olive Bonsai Tree; Root of Earth Bowls + Baskets; Teak and Glass Bowls

Air - The air element is associated with the breath of life. Air symbolizes communication, intelligence, perception, knowledge, learning, thinking, imagaination, creativity, harmony, and travel.  Incorporating wind spinners, chimes, and element that use wind can be reminders of the importance of breath. Enzo Wind Spinner; Macramé + Glass Chime; Zen Gratitude Spinner

Water - Water is symbolic of healing, fluidity, purification, regeneration, stability, strength, change, and unconditional love. Freshwater stands for life and good health; therefore, the addition of water fountains, rain chains, and river stones, which have been shaped by water, can represent strength and stability.

Fire - Fire is attributed to transformational and purifying powers. It can give warmth and enable life and symbolizes incredible energy, activity, creativity, passon, freedom, power, love, and vision. The addition of a fire pit area or a fireplace and incorporating objects formed by fire like our lava ash statues are ways to bring in this energetic and powerful symbol to your home.
