Houseplants are not only a beautiful addition to your home, they serve an important purpose. Cathy Isom lets you know about some plants that can improve your health. That’s coming up on This Land of Ours.
Houseplants aren’t just excellent companions because they brighten rooms. They allow you to experience the outdoors inside the comfort of your home. Beyond that, they can improve your health. That’s because there are many popular plants that can purify the air in your home or office.
Plants naturally convert the carbon dioxide that we humans produce into breathable oxygen. Without plants, the earth would be uninhabitable. Inside our homes, however, there isn’t just carbon dioxide to deal with. As a result of daily living and items that we introduce into our homes, the air in our living quarters isn’t always fresh and safe to breathe.
Adding houseplants to your living room, kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom is the ideal way to regulate air quality in your home, because they filter out such toxins as formaldehyde, ammonia, benzene, and xylene, just to name a few.
Consider these plants to make your home for safer and healthier breathing space. Spider plants, Philodendrons, Lady Palms, Boston Fern, Snake Plant, English Ivy, Aloe Vera, Chrysanthemums, Kimberly Queen Ferns, and Lily Turf. Many of these plants are low maintenance and perfect for even the beginner gardener.
