Health Benefits Of Indoor Plants

DSC001921-1024x1011Did you know that indoor plants actually clean your air?
Did you know that the air in your house or work place is usually far more polluted than the air outside?
Various plants such as Aloe Vera, Spider plant, Snake plant, Weeping Fig, English Ivy and Bamboo Palm among many others are excellent at removing toxins from your environment.
Common volatile organic compounds such as formaldehyde, benzene, xylene and many more which are commonly found in cleaning products, personal care products, tissues, carpets, paint,( the list goes on…. ) are effectively removed by many plants. Plants are also great at removing carbon monoxide and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere all of which is a big plus in my book!
If you’re not that green fingered, do some research as there are many plants which don’t need an enormous amount of work, or light or watering but will be a great asset to your home.
And lastly, throw open those windows (for at least 20 minutes a day) let the fresh air in and the stale air out, it will really reenergise your space.
