Toxins aren't only inside our bodies, they are also inside our homes - cleaning products, furniture, carpet, flooring, electronics, cooking - there are so many things that cause indoor air pollution.
The simple, natural solution to clearing up this indoor air? Plants.
So simple, pretty and healthy, plus they are totally on trend right now! Keeping plants is good for your mind, body and soul. Along with fresh oxygen, they also provide you with a sense of fulfillment when you take care of them and have the ability to visually lift your spirits.
Look for easy to maintain plants in pots that compliment your decor. They don't have to be expensive or exotic. Take note of how much light they need when deciding where to put them. I water all of mine about once a week. Super easy.
Any type of palm (big or small), succulents, ferns, spider plants and banana leaf plants are rated the best for air purification. As a side note, if you enjoy fresh flowers (and who doesn't???) tulips and gerber daisies are the best for removing toxins from the air.
I keep a lot of plants in my office space in an effort to reduce the radiation emitted by my electronics. Also, since plants turn carbon dioxide into oxygen - they are good to have around to keep me alert and clear headed.
Other great spots to put house plants are in the bedroom for peaceful, clean air rest and in the kitchen to clear some of the air from cooking.
Let's get this fresh air party started and get some gorgeous plants into your home today!
