We used to think plants belonged in a garden, outside with the sun and the dirt. Everyday, more and more people are incorporating plants into their houses and office spaces. Having indoor plants create an easy way to bring a little bit of nature’s beauty inside with you. While they are simply enough to look at, there are also many benefits to having plants inside of your home and office.
First, having plants inside help to purify the surrounding air. Plants such as the spider plant, aloe vera, and chrysanthemum all play a part in cleansing the air from toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde and benzene which are commonly found in things like paint and cigarettes. Plants, such as eucalyptus, are able to humidify the air by by releasing water vapors, decreasing dust which protects us from respiratory problems, dry coughs, and sore throats. Having plants in bedrooms can help you to sleep better. Plants such as lavender, Jasmine, and Gardenia can increase the quality of sleep by giving off a soothing effect to one’s body and mind which can lower heart rate, stress and anxiety levels, and blood pressure.
Although you wouldn’t expect certain plants to be able to grow from the inside of a building, plants have the ability to grow healthy produce. Fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes, apples, oranges, and so much more are so easily grown indoors as long as the right steps are taken in order to take care of them. Aside from saving money from buying produce at the grocery store, you are also guaranteed that the produce is fresh as well as pesticide free.
These plants can double as pretty house decors, adding a mini green paradise to any room! House plants can contribute to a feeling of wellbeing, making you calmer and more optimistic. They are the perfect thing to come home to after a long and stressful day.
