The energy or chi of the body is influenced by the environment, including what we wear and use on the body. It is best to wear washable natural fibers, such as cotton, linen and wool. The chemicals used in dry cleaning are toxic unless steam-cleaned.
Although synthetic fibers have bright colours and are easy to clean, they lower down our energy level. For those who are sensitive, they can induce depression. Look for organic cotton clothing whenever possible, it is good for the environment and increasing one’s energy.
Nylon stockings are made of synthetic material. Wearing them lowers down one’s energy. One will get tired easily.
The skin is the largest organ of the body. Anything that is applied on the skin will be absorbed into the body. Therefore extra care needs to be taken to avoid using perfume, chemical cosmetic and soap, chemical shampoo and hair dye.
