I love the beauty my house plants bring to my home. Did you know having plants in your home can be beneficial to you and your families health? I wanted to share some benefits of having plants in your home.
1. Plants Clean the Air
Through photosynthesis, plants convert carbon dioxide we exhale into fresh oxygen. They can also remove toxins from the air. Have you heard of NASA's experiment? They found that plants release formaldehyde and benzene from the air. Plants are a natural way to purify the air. Here is a list of NASA's top air-purifying plants.
-Dwarf Date Palm
-Kimberly Queen Fern
-Variegated Snake Plant
2. Plants are Mood-Boosting
Being around plants improves concentration, memory, and productivity. As with being in nature plants reduces anxiety because they assist in breathing.
3. Plants are Natural HealersPlants release 97% of the water they absorb. If you place several plants together you will increase the humidity in the room. This helps keep respiratory distress at bay. The humidity plants give off can decrease dry skin, colds, sore throughs, and dry coughs.
Plants bring beauty and clam into our space. It's important to keep some greenery in every room now that you know the benefits.
Bedroom Plants: French Lavender
The aroma of lavender is so calming and relaxing. This is a perfect indoor plant to put in your bedroom. Place this plant next to a sunny window and water it regularly. Enjoy the lovely scent of lavender all night long.
Living Room: Peace Lilly
This plant is on NASA's list as one of the top air-purifying plants. This plant is showy and low maintenance. I have had my Peace Lilly for 5 years and he lives in the living room. This is a great lowlight plant.
Dining Room or Kitchen: Bamboo & Herbs
Is happy in most light conditions. They are easy to take care of and just need distilled water. There are so many different varieties. I keep my bamboo in my kitchen and seems to love it there.
Herbs are also great to keep in a sunny kitchen window. You will have easy access to fresh herbs. You will have to do a little pruning every now and then.
Ferns can tolerate low-light. (Not No Light) The high humidity makes a welcoming environment for the plants. Great lushes low-maintenance decor.
Sunroom: Aloes & Succulents
This is the perfect spot for many house plants. You must not miss the opportunity to grow an aloe vera. This plant will enrich your first aid arsenal.
