House plants are plentiful around the house and in the office. Not only do they look nice, but they also help the airflow within the home. They take in carbon dioxide (the air we breathe out) and give off oxygen (the air we breathe in). Add plants to your office desk for more success in your business and work life. So much stress and tension can be felt around the home and in the office, so indoor plants allow you to see greenery around, which helps immediately lower your blood pressure and heart rate as this takes you back to nature. They also look lovely and calming, so by having them in the bedroom, you can already get a sense of calmness. Having plants in the office also reduces sickness rates; well who knew that? I didn’t!
House Plants also help to reduce noise levels as the leaves absorb the noise. Isn’t that interesting, another fact I didn’t know about until recently. Plants produce about 10% of moisture in the air, which is excellent during the summer months when it gets hot. Some plants are great at clearing any unwanted odours around the house. They absorb all the nasty smells turning them into fresh, clean air.
There are many indoor plants for you to buy or have around. Here are some of my favourites.
The Spider Plant
The Spider Plant produces oxygen while purifying the air in your home. It removes toxins within the home by absorbing carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and xylene. Additionally, Spider Plants are non-toxic and edible, making them safe for pets and young children.
Aloe Vera has so many unique properties and benefits. It has a natural soothing gel inside the leaves, which helps to soothe sunburn and helps cuts and grazes to heal. It can also be used for asthma when the leaves are opened and placed into boiling water.
This plant removes toxins in the air from hair sprays and deodorants, so this is a food one to have in the bedroom. Plus, I love the way it looks. It originated from the Canary Islands.
This lovely plant is tolerant of the indoor environment, releases copious amounts of moisture into the air, removes chemical toxins, and is also beautiful to look at. The Kentia is consistently rated among the best houseplants for removing all indoor air toxins tested. So definitely get this plant if you are unsure which one to get.
