Tips for Home

Here are some Vastu tips for your safe-heaven & work:-

vastu tips for home

Tip #1

Vastu Shastra is an old guide for a positive home, right from the entrance of a house to the bedroom to the kitchen to the bathroom.

The door of the house which is also considered as the archway of victory & progress in life should be constructed in a way that when you step out you should face the north-east should avoid painting the entrance door black and also a shoe rack or dustbin right outside the door. 

Tip #2

Ideally, Vastu says the bedroom in a southwest direction of the house yields good health & prosperity. We should avoid a bedroom in the north-east or south-east part of the home as it may cause serious health issues or if the couples sleep in these rooms it may cause many quarrels among them. The bed should be kept in the southwest corner of your bedroom with your head facing west. One should avoid keeping mirrors or television in front of the bed as your reflection must not be seen in a mirror when in bed as it may cause domestic fights.

Tip #3

Brahmasthan or the center of your house is also considered the center of your nest. In this region, many powerful energies flow and are considered the most powerful and holiest area of your home.Brahmasthan or the center of the house should be spotless and clutter-free. It should be built in the circumference of 1 to 1.5 meters and this circumference should not have any objects to block the flow of energy. It should not also have any obstruction or any build-up area. It is important to understand the bond between the healing power of the Vastu and of our home to harness positive energy and good vibes.

Tip #4

The living room of any Vastu amenable home should have the living room facing to the north of the home or east or the northeastern side. Vastu rules state that any ideal living room should be a north-facing living room. All the bulky furniture should be placed in the west or southern-west area of the living room. Any electronics and electronic appliances should be situated in the southeast part of the hall. If one wants to keep a mirror in the living space, it should be ensured it is placed on the northern section of the wall.

Tip #5 

Nature invariably brings a happy, pleasant element in your home, but flowers or plants which are dead, dried or withered can bring up an opposite impact on the people living in the home. This can also hinder the energy flow in the house. Carnations should not be kept inside the home as it brings bad luck to our home. These plants can be grown outside the home, either in the garden or on the terrace. Plants or cacti which have thorns should never be kept inside the house as it may cause interpersonal issues.

Tips for Office

vastu tips for office

Tip #1

Seating arrangement in Vastu Shastra plays a key role as the entrepreneur should facing east or north but the best is east as the sun rises from the east making the use the force for the financial growth. 

The marketing & sales team members should also sit facing north or northeast ensuring proactive work.

The financial staff should sit at the southeast corner facing north to ensure financial growth.

Tip #2

According to Vastu Shastra, the accountant of the company should sit at the south-east corner of the office facing the north-east direction for an increase in wealth.

Vastu direction which influences the financial prosperity is north & northeast. These directions are ruled by the element of water, which indicates a person's financial status. Also, many Vastu experts suggest placing a mirror or Kuber yantra on the northern section of the office to assure financial opportunity.

Tip #3

The reception area of the office should have a clear view of people coming into the office. The reception area of the office creates a long-lasting impression for first-time visitors. Hence, putting a bunch of French lavender flowers or green jade flowers on the reception desk will encompass the space with positive energies, which will attract prosperity.

This water is good for your health and it soothes acidity and other gastronomical pains. Many types of research have been done on this property of clay. It's a great thing for the people who usually have gastronomical problems. A study implies that drinking alkaline ionized water may benefit people with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. Even if there is a shortage of proven scientific analysis, alkaline water is still believed to have many other health benefits which includes: anti-aging properties, colon-cleansing properties, improving the immune system, skin health and other detoxifying properties.

4. Self - Cooling

The surface of the clay is porous. When we store water in clay bottle the porous surface helps it to cool the water through the process of vaporization. The heat & moisture maintains a dynamic equilibrium to cool the water eliminating the use of refrigerators. It's not just cool, it's self-cool. Exercise increases your body temperature whereas sweating reduces the core temperature of your body to balance it. However, when the body perspires it loses a fair amount of water and electrolytes with it. Drinking cold water lowers your body’s core temperature to help preserve water.

Earthen Clay Water Bottle

5. Prevents Heat Stroke

We all have suffered from heat stroke at some point in our life, and we all try to avoid having a sunstroke. It's better to drink water stored in a clay bottle with enriched minerals and nutrients which keeps the glucose levels in your body balanced preventing strokes. Keep this clay bottle with you every time during summers and keep those sunstroke's away.

So, I hope now you know why our mother and grandmother used to scold us not to drink refrigerated water but to drink water from clay vessels.

Earnestly mothers know the best .!!

"Clay in the right hands can turn into a gorgeous artwork.", it has been rightly said that clay can be molded into a wonderful eco-friendly product in a potter's hand. Every earthenware crafted by us is made from the clay of a mystical river called Rauna, Europe. The skilled hands of potter turn this beautiful clay into fine Earthy Clay water bottles, fire hardens them to perfection. Firstly, the collected clay is placed on a lathe, where it grows in the hands of master craftsmen. With fire, it hardens and the master polishes each product with hands until the product becomes frosted and brown. Each clay vase, plate, bowl and bottles etc sing lore of the potter's home, where the lilies she picked earlier from the forest are waiting to get watered.

After caressing the wick like a time-honored friend, the warm soy wax flows into the glass. With the smells of fresh mint, world-traveled marigold, relaxing lavender and sweet rose garden. Then she makes the wax rounds with cinnamon sticks and bilberry leaves, and the birch candle in clay hands. And the candle in a tin can as if swiped from an artist’s studio. The light from her candles falls, yielding peace and harmony. Our aroma candles allow people to be themselves. To be a romantic lover who wants to linger in the memories of summer holidays in the countryside.


MUNIO home eco-friendly handcrafted linen collection is a story of the weavers whose ancestors once made fine blankets for the french king. The women laugh as trinkets and say men ran out of patience so they weave their heritage and stories in the linen tablecloth. Each table runner, each ash grey tablecloth has a soul in it. As the Weavers often say "Go wind on the soul!”. The yarns are arranged one by one in the loom and the stringed yarns are strengthened. In the weaving process the master’s hands, legs, and head are involved until the product is weaved. Thread by thread and the yarns start to talk, about the daughters who sing in the greatest opera but still know how to weave their folk costumes. And about the weaver whose house smells of lemon because she grows one in a pot. Then the weaved fabric is re-measured by the next master & sewed up in different handcrafted products like tablecloth, runners, blankets and pillowcase etc. 


An age-old tree covered with moss and rough barks that had spent the long summer night's alone is gently held in the master's hand. A block of wood submits to a saw that cuts through it like butter. The wooden piece is prepared for the processing, firstly it's cut in the form and the master starts the work by carving the wooden spoon. Then it is ground and finally oiled with the linseed oil which is used in the food. Smooth as a baby’s cheek, with the aroma of a summer swelter. The master, who calls himself the Ferryman, puts it by the others and sets off home to a pine log house that someday his son and daughter will inherit. Each eco-friendly spoon, knife, blade & fork formed by the master speaks about a land where the folk taps the juices of trees in the spring to make wine. About eminent poets who travel their childhood places and clear overgrown forest paths. We all should make sure to eco-friendly products in our daily life as they not only economical but also preserve natural resources.

      health tips during monsoon season

      We all love monsoons, the sweet petrichor is surrounds us with and the childhood memories it brings back to us. The memory of making paper boats from the pages of our science notebook, wearing cute raincoats to schools, getting drenched in the rain, being scolded by mom and her saying you will get skin infections. Although in all means she was correct monsoon does bring a lot of health problems like dengue, malaria, typhoid, viral hepatitis, stomach infections, etc. It's necessary to take some precautions during the rain to keep your family safe and yet enjoy the rain. Here are a few health tips for monsoon, follow them.

      Do Drink Purified Water

      purified water benefits

      Water is a common source of life, and also infections during monsoon season, waterborne diseases like cholera, Typhoid, Hepatitis, etc. This happens because the water we drink is contaminated with germs. Often the municipality water we consume comes from a nearby river, and during monsoon, these rivers tend to over flood or mix with nearby sewage flow. So, it's important to drink purified water during monsoon to keep diseases at bay. You or your kids may also get tempted from that roadside Juice Shops, avoid those. As you never have known the water they use is purified water or not. So, it's best to drink safe purified water to avoid any water-borne disease.

      Do Maintain Personal Hygiene

      ways to maintain personal hygiene

      With the beginning of monsoon, we should start maintaining good personal hygiene, as many germs are sneaking in your home. So keep yourself and your home neat and clean to avoid any kind of disease. Always take shower after getting drenched in rain, dry your hair as damp hair and clothes attract flu causing virus. If you suffer from sore throat drink water from a clay water bottle as they have magical healing properties and it keeps water at a good temperature. Monsoon is a season that provides an ideal condition for insects like flies, mosquito, bedbugs, etc which brings diseases to your home. So it's best to clean your home inside out.

      Do Wear Dry Clothes and Footwear

      monsoon health safety tips

      With no sun it's evident that you are left with those damp clothes and shoes. If you are going out and still want to wear your favorite shoes which are still damp strictly avoid them. As damp shoes and clothes make a perfect environment for germs to grow in and evidently to give you skin infections. There are many ways to ensure that you have well-dried clothes and shoes like you can keep a bag of rice or salt in the room where clothes are drying as rice tends to absorb moisture from the air. Also, use good scented detergents or liquid detergents to avoid any musty smelling clothes. And lastly, iron your clothes before wearing them.

      Don't Eat Street and Uncooked  Food

      avoid eating street food

      During monsoon season we all crave those spicy, and oily food like pakoras with chai. But we should avoid any such fast food or the road stall food as they are the simplest way to attract gastronomic infections or other intestinal problems. As our digestive system weakens during monsoon season, avoid any uncooked, oily spicy food as they make our body feel lazy & sluggish. Consume only home-cooked meals and snacks, avoid stale food, raw fruits, and vegetables. Home-cooked meals are not only nutritious but also boots your immunity. Wash & boil your vegetable thoroughly before to avoid any kind of waterborne disease.

      Don't Let Water Accumulate around your House

      avoid stagnant water

      Accumulation of water around your house is a common thing in monsoon. If you any have tanks, tires, garbage cans, bottles, flower pots lying around your home, discard them immediately. As these things can accumulate water in it and eventually turn into a breeding house of mosquitoes. If there is a garden pond in your home or a pond near your premises, then keep gambusia fish in it as they decrease the chance of mosquito breeding. Mosquitoes still being a part and parcel of this lovely season, use powerful mosquito repellents in your home to keep mosquito-borne diseases like malaria, dengue, chikungunya, etc at bay. If you want complete protection against mosquito then use mosquito nets at nights and install nets to the doors and windows of your home.

      Soy wax is a wax derived from a vegetable Soy, primarily the oil of soybean is used in the making of the candle. Once the soybeans are harvested, it is cleaned, cracked, dehulled, and pressed to convert it to flakes. Then these flakes are used to extract oil, which is further hydrogenated. Hydrogenation of an oil is the process of converting the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated, which increases the melting point of the soy oil, so it's in a solid-state at room temperature. There are many benefits of using soy wax candles which we will learn as we go further.

      1. Long - lasting

      When buying soy-based candles you must have noticed it is quite expensive, but comparing its burn time its noting compared to paraffin wax. Munio home candles( big candles) have a burn time of whooping 50 hours, this is because soy wax has a low melting point. As soy wax has low melting compared to other candle wax like beeswax or paraffin. This means when soy wax burns it would be cooler, compared to others. And an elongated life of a candle means you can enjoy it for a longer time.

      2. Natural

      As soy wax is extracted from soybeans- a natural, renewable source that can be cultivated anywhere. Whereas paraffin wax which is made petroleum, and as we all know petroleum is a nonrenewable source and it contains many cancer-causing agents and other harmful substances which can affect our body.

      3. Cleaner

      When Soy candles are burnt they don't release any kind carcinogens or cancer-causing agents, zero toxins, or any other pollutant and most importantly no petro shoots. Whereas when paraffin candles are burnt it releases petro shoots which can cause cancer, many other pollutants, and toxins.

Also, it doesn't harm our environment by releasing any toxins in the air.

      4. Better Scent

      As we learned earlier that soy wax candles burn cleaner than paraffin wax, the aromas released from the added essential oils are much stronger and pleasant than those of synthetic scent-based paraffin candles. Nowadays it's very common to hear complaints of a headache when paraffin candles are burnt, but what they don't realize is not because of the candles but because of synthetic scents added in them. Soy wax candles give more benefits over the petroleum-based paraffin candles which people don't even realize.

      5. Easy to Clean

      Cleaning Candle spills is a nasty thing if you love to lit candles every day in the evening after a tough day at the office or while enjoying wine with your spouse, or during a nice bubble bath.

Once the wax has spilled let it harden up, scrape off the excess wax with a blunt knife( ( you don't want to scratch that expensive wooden table), and then clean it with hot water and little soap.

Mostly structured products like line Blazers, Suits, etc need to through the dry cleaning process as regular washing may destroy its shape.

So it is better if you test a piece of the fabric beforehand.

      You don't have much time to wash your linen and simply want to throw them in the washing machine, & let it do the hard work for you. Turn the wash cycle into a gentle setting, and use the maximum level of water available in your machine. Always wash our linen with lukewarm water, use mild detergents to clean it, & never add any kind of bleaching liquid.

      Coronavirus or Covid19 the worst pandemic, which has sickened more than two million people (still counting) and caused death to more than one hundred eight thousand people around the globe. Citizens have been forced to stay indoors to protect themselves. Amid all this mother nature took a new turn to bloom herself, we saw her reclaim lands, we got to see animals roaming freely around in many cites. With rivers & oceans getting cleaner the aquatic life grew, as various factories have been shut down air is getting cleaner it's like our mother earth is taking a deep sigh of relief.



      Lockdown has served well to Nature, water bodies throughout the world are getting more cleaner and letting the aquatic life to grow further. In India, we saw river Ganges getting clearer due to less human intervention and factories shutting down due to nationwide lockdown. In the city of Mumbai, there were sites of dolphins coming back and running across the coastal line without any barriers. The city of love, Venice is known for its breathtaking canals but due to heavy boat the canals always remained murky also saw it getting cleaner and fishes bubbling around.


      save animals

      Where humans made themselves scare due to worldwide lockdown, animals are wondering did we go? Fauna life is flourishing throughout the world, they are taking small steps to explore the world beyond there boundaries. Sika deers were spotted outside there natural habitat in the streets of Nara, Japan. In Yosemite national park famous for its bears has also spotted bears coming to parks and having a party of there own. In India, peacocks are been spotted in the neighborhood, also Civet was reported to have used the zebra crossing to pass the road. And the famous Olive ridley Turtles has been spotted resting on the coast of Odisha.


      Save Trees

      Earth is healing itself, recently we saw a Brazil bush Fire and Australian bush-fire which caused more than half Forrest to burn out and causing death to more than half-million animals. Forest are healing themselves at a faster rate with no human attack. Deforestation has also come to stop for a short while, as none is cutting down trees for industrial use or commercial use. Due to fewer pollution birds and pollen agents can travel freely and help in the pollination process, which is important for trees to grow fruits or seeds. Also, these birds are helping in afforestation as they tend to drop the seeds for away place, letting the seed grow into a sapling, this is the way nature always grew itself.


      Air Pollution

      This global pandemic has led to a huge drop in air pollution throughout the world. Due to lockdown, many industrial activities have come to a halt temporarily cutting down the air pollution levels. Many experts are also stating that this was the "largest-scale experiment ever conducted" on the worldwide reduction of industrial effusions. Nitrogen dioxide generated from cars, power plants, and many other industrials is responsible for global warming, and ozone depletion has also reduced. India which comes among countries with top bad air quality index has also seen a lot of improvisation in terms of air quality, Himalayan tops can be spotted from cities that were hidden by the dense fog of polluted air.


      Sound Pollution

      Due to a worldwide lockdown and various commutes coming to a pause it has become much quieter outside. People have started working from home and cars which honked on traffic lights have all become so silent. In this silence, we can hear birds acoustics now it’s like they are singing a happy melody of survival to us in this time of panic. Birds need to sing find to there proper mate, but without being able to sing melodies for there mates or their mates to hear these beautiful melodies it has become harder for birds to survive.

      Five Tips For Eco Lifestyle | Eco-Living

      eco friendly lifestyle

      There comes a time when we all realize what a wasteful life we live then we think of following the path of eco-lifestyle. But to understand what is eco-lifestyle, we need to know its stem word Eco-friendly. Eco means which doesn't harm nature directly or indirectly, and when we include that in our day to day lifestyle its called Eco-lifestyle.

      Here, are five tips for Eco-lifestyle.

      • Slow Fashion
      • 3 Rs( Reduce, Reuse, Recycle)
      • Ecological Footprint
      • Be Ecologically Sound
      • Plant more Trees


      what is slow fashion

      we hear this term everyday ethical fashion or slow fashion is clothing & accessories that are thoughtfully made & meant to use for a long time. Buy clothing either from slow fashion brands & do your research before shopping from them like where they source the raw materials from, how they manufacture the products, how is their supply chain, to final consumer & disposal of it. Don't shop following trends in the market or by the direction of different brands. Shop less & shop consciously, Love the fewer things you have, celebrate those things. Once you want to dispose of clothes, think about donating them to others or to upcycle them.

      reduce reuse recycle poster

      This simple tip is mostly related to the waste hierarchy from the daily consumption's of good,3 Rs or Reduce, Reuse Or Recycle means to reduce waste, to reuse the produced waste & to recycle waste whenever possible. You can simply reduce waste by buying either bulk products or reusable products for example instead of buying paper napkins you can always invest in Munio Home Linen Napkin which can be reused many times without adding to waste. Reusing as we know reusing means to use your waste instead of disposing of it, For example, you can always reuse a water bottle instead of throwing and adding strain on the environment, better we suggest to go for clay bottle it has many benefits in it (we have mentioned it in our previous article, please have look at it)

      And lastly, we come across recycle, it is always better to recycle the waste it not only saves natural resources but adds up to society too. All the Munio Home Glassware products are made from recycled glass.


      ecological footprint example

      Humans need three basic things,i.e, food, shelter & clothing to survive and, ecological footprint measures the population's demand & supply of resources and services of eco-system. When a country has more demand for ecological resources by its population and less supply its called ecological deficit whereas if a country has more ecological resources then the demand its called ecological reserve. It's always better to know your ecological footprint, it very simple just answer a few questions and you would know your ecological footprint. If your ecological footprint is too high then you should take action faster it better to be early than late.



      Being Ecologically sound just means that a person should know about the products they consume in day-to-day life like where the raw materials were sourced from, does the manufacturing of the product harms the nature, the using of the products would harm the nature, did it involve any kind child labor, what was the supply chain of distributing the products, how to consume it and the disposal of the same.

      These questions are very important to answers before buying any kind of product it would be better if you do proper research before buying any kind of goods from the market.


      plant more trees poster

      This is the most common tip given to us by all the sources plant more trees, even in a third-grade ecology class, we were taught to plant more trees. But have we ever thought about why to plant more trees? we all know plants reduce carbon dioxide and provide us with oxygen. Trees are an essential part of the earth their roots hold the soil so that it can absorb the excess water during rain and thunderstorm. They provide us with energy-saving shade and reduces global warning providing home to many other species. A huge tree can provide enough oxygen required by two people and also absorb the carbon dioxide released by them.

      5 Reasons to use Eco-friendly Products

      5 reasons why we need to use eco friendly products

      "We don't inherit the earth from our ancestors, We borrow it from our Children" 

      Eco-friendly, Environmental Friendly, Green Products you must have heard them all, but ever wondered why these products should be used. There are many reasons for the same, But the few most important are it not benefits you but also to the environment, Economy & most importantly to society. It also helps you save money as most of the eco-friendly product is based on slow fashion, meaning to use the product for its whole life cycle.

      So, let's take a look at the five reasons why one should use eco-friendly, green, sustainable, etc products.


      Cost Effective

      Eco-friendly products are worth spending on, but most of the people say eco-friendly means expensive. But Fair labor & ethical practices will cost more but in the long run, it saves lots of money. For Ex, Munio Home linen is quite expensive but it can be used for at least 20 years before it starts to lose its charm, whereas any regular home furnishing can only survive for 2 years. Eco-homes are also worth spending on as the construction of such homes require quite bigger investments but it saves money on lots of things like water, electricity, etc. For example, installing bigger windows in your home may cost you more on development but in long it would make sure you have abundant light in your home during the daytime & save electricity bills.


      healthier lifestyle tips

      When you use more eco-friendly products in your day-to-day lifestyle you could reduce the number of pollutants that get into the soil, water, air, etc. This would make both indoors and outdoors to have more clean space to live & grow. Sequentially, you would be breathing clean air, have clean & green surroundings, the freshwater available for everyone and many more. Using more eco-friendly products in your day-to-day also reduces stress & improves the quality  of life.

      We would also improve the lifestyle of your kids & future generations in the long run. Also educating our children about what's eco-friendly when they are small will help the kids grow more empathic & conscious of the Nature that surrounds them.


      recycling save natural resources

      When you switch to green products or eco friendly products you make sure the natural resources are conserved one way or the other.As most of the eco-friendly products are made consciously to use the resources most efficiently. For Example, Munio Home Glasswares are made from recycled glass which not only reduces the consumption of sand from nature but also the production glassware requires less energy.

      Also, switching to green sources of energy like solar panels which generates electricity from the sun. It works as an option to reduce the consumption of fossil fuel which is needed to make electricity & hence, saving resources. It helps also in saving water resources as green homes promote the usage of rainwater harvesting & other water-saving plumbing in homes.


      biodegradable packaging

      With the advent of e-commerce, packaging has become a huge issue as the amount of plastic packaging they use is huge. Companies need to opt for eco-friendly packaging as it creates a good brand image, it simply shows the social responsibility of the brand towards the mother earth and customers love to use these products which are made ethically.

      Using eco-friendly doesn't harm nature, it can be recycled easily by the customers receiving it. Most of the brands have come up with multipurpose use of packaging. For example, Munio home India uses cardboard packaging for all of the Eco-friendly soy-based aroma candles, For all the linen products it comes in a cute knapsack which you can use later or when you are not using the product you can pack it the sack and keep it in cupboards.


      improve our environment

      Be it eco-friendly products or be it an eco-friendly building, everything contributes to saving the environment by not using harmful materials that can wreck nature. The production of such products is aimed to reduce the use of natural resources and recycle as much as possible. Also, the production and construction of eco-products & eco-homes creates less air pollution, reducing the risk of climate change and other disasters. With the coming of new technologies to make your life better and easier doesn't mean we should harm nature, by using eco-friendly products we reduce the carbon footprint.
