Ever wondered how houseplants can improve your health? Adding a houseplant or two to your home or office will offer a wide range of mental and physical health benefits. Studies have proven that houseplants provide several benefits including improving air quality and your mood.
The list of psychological benefits of indoor plants include reduced stress levels, improved mood, productivity and attention span… perfect for a work environment such as an office. Houseplants will add colour and interest throughout your home to create a more relaxed and interesting environment for you to enjoy. With so many houseplants to choose from you can create a unique and exciting display of foliage and flowers.
The physical health benefits of houseplants include reduced blood pressure, fatigue and headaches through improving air quality by removing airborne pollutants. Pollution levels are often much higher indoors with a mix of nitrous oxides, carbon monoxide and dust-like particles. Other indoor substances include those given off by furnishings, detergents and paints. These substances can all contribute to headaches, fatigue and irritability so attempts to lower the levels of pollutants in your home can only be a good thing!
Some of the best houseplants to cleanse your air include ‘peace-lilies’, ‘Mother-in-law’s Tongue’ and ‘Boston Ferns’. These plants have lots of foliage to soak up bad air and give off the clean oxygen you need. Most houseplants are easy to care for and require minimum time and attention to thrive.
