Metaphysical and spiritual ideas, not science, underlie the idea that plants may alter energy.
Alternative or holistic methods support the belief that plants directly affect human energy, even if scientific research have shown the psychological benefits of nature. Some psychological aspects of this concept:
Many cultures and religions utilize plants as symbols and metaphors. Plants symbolize growth, vitality, and connectivity, which may explain how they affect energy.
Certain cultures and religions attribute energy or properties to plants. In traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, several plants are believed to heal or balance energy.
Plant care and interaction can improve mental health through the mind-body connection. Gardening or being around plants can improve mood and reduce stress.
Aromatherapy uses essential oils from fragrant plants for therapeutic purposes. Inhaling various scents may affect mood, energy, and emotions.
The biophilia concept suggests humans are naturally drawn to nature and life. Plant interaction can activate this biophilic connection, promoting harmony, togetherness, and positivity.
Although these psychological factors may influence people's perceptions in plants' energy-influencing properties, there is no scientific proof that plants directly transport or manipulate energy.
