Boost Your Home And Health With House Plants

Green and clean throughout your home

With more time spent at home this year, many of us are seeking ways to improve our living space, keep our environment clean, and decrease stress levels. One easy way to accomplish all three? Houseplants. They’re not only good for your health, but they also add visual appeal to your home and are known mood-boosters.

 

Extensive research by NASA has revealed that houseplants can remove up to 87 per cent of air toxin in 24 hours. Studies have also proven that indoor plants improve concentration and productivity (by up to 15 percent!), reduce stress levels and boost your mood — making them perfect for not just your home but your work space, too.

Before adding any greenery to your home, you’ll want to make sure you’re adding the right plants for your environment and home life. Not all plants are pet-friendly, and some are easier to take care of than others.

  • Boost your mood, productivity, concentration and creativity
  • Reduce your stress, fatigue, sore throats and colds
  • Help clean indoor air by absorbing toxins, increasing humidity & producing oxygen
  • Add life to a sterile space, give privacy and reduce noise levels
  • Are therapeutic to care for (it’s true when we say Plants Make People Happy)
