Through the leaves of House Plants

Updated: Jan 28, 2021

As a Yogi and a blogger I love to look at the plants around my house. They always bring a sense of calmness into the home.

House plants are great to have around the house. Not only do they look nice, they actually help the air flow within the home. They take in carbon dioxide (the air we breathe out) and give off oxygen (the air we breathe in).

About 10% of moisture in the air is produced by plants so this is great during the summer months when it gets really hot.

Some plants are great at clearing any unwanted odours around the house. They absorb all the nasty smells turning them into fresh clean air.

The Spider Plant

The Spider Plant produces oxygen whilst purifying the air in your home. It gets rid of toxins within the home by absorbing carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and xylene. Additionally, Spider Plants are non-toxic and are in fact edible, making them safe for pets and young children.

The Aloe Vera Plant

Well this is one of my favourites. Aloe Vera has so many amazing properties and benefits. It has a natural soothing gel inside the leaves which help to sooth sunburn, and helps cuts and grazes to heal. It can also be used for asthma when the leaves are opened and placed into boiling water.

Dragon Plant

This plant removes toxins in the air from hair sprays and deodorants so this is a food one to have in the bedroom. Plus I love the way it looks. It originated from the Canary Islands.

Kentia Palm

This lovely plant is tolerant of the indoor environment, releases copious amounts of moisture into the air, removes chemical toxins, and is also beautiful to look at. The Kentia is consistently rated among the best houseplants for removing all indoor air toxins tested. So definitely get this plant if you are unsure which one to get.

I love all my indoor plants. They look great and also I love my little green Army Men. They go well on this shelf. You can mix and match what you want around your home. Just look after and care for them and you'll reap the benefits.

I hope you find this post helpful.

Let me know!

Have a blessed day!
