Once colder weather hits, people tend to stay inside. When a house is closed up inside, airborne toxin levels actually become higher. Before you panic and run out to buy an air purifier, consider adding houseplants for a natural fix. The leaves and roots of plants digest contaminants in the air.
Benefits? People who work or live near plants tend to have lower blood pressure, recover faster from illness, and have improved mental clarity and fewer headaches. Here are six plants that do a great job of purifying the air:
- Bedroom: Gerbera Daisy
- Bathroom: Dracaena Janet Craig
- Kitchen: English Ivy
- Hallways: Peace Lily
- Laundry Room: Boston Fern
- Attached Garage: Golden Pothos
Think about adding a few plants to your rooms and watch the benefits blossom!
