Houseplants for a healthy lifestyle! Plants not only make you happy but purify your indoor air environment by absorbing the many toxins found in our home.
In the late 1980s NASA performed a study to determine the effect houseplants have on purifying indoor air. Houseplants were found to grab and filter out volatile organic compounds or VOCs. Based on their study, experts suggest roughly one plant per 100 square feet of home or office space.
Plants can provide a calming, comforting effect on us. Some studies have shown that indoor plants can actually help in speeding up recovery time from illness. Other known benefits of indoor houseplants are: stress reduction, increase of moisture levels in your home (reducing dry skin), improvement in sleep, and even aid in congestion, headaches and allergies.
So not only do they look great and add some color to your home décor, they also help with our health. Get a head start on “Spring Cleaning" with houseplants!
