Dr. Raviraj Ahirrao, Co-founder, VastuRaviraj, told HerZindagi that this ancient science of metaphysical edifice helps in synchronising the balance between humans and nature. The five basic elements, the eight basic geographical & esoteric directions, the electromagnetic & gravitational forces of the Earth, the cosmic energies emanating from the planets as well as the atmosphere and their influence on human life are all taken into consideration in the science of Vastushastra.

Candles infused with relevant essential oils which have relation healing properties and those that can energise your love life would be ideal for your Valentine this season.

Gifting plants

Lavendar, on the hand, is a symbol of constancy, devotion and love. Plants are not just eco-friendly gifts but they need nurturing. Your Valentine’s focus on your plant and the special efforts that he/she would take to nurture it will go a long way in building the foundations of your relationship
