Indoor toxins affect our health much more than we know, and they increase the intake of allergies, asthma, inflammation, respiratory issues, and even cancer.
Casper The Blog reports:
“Houseplants can do more than just make your shelves look brighter. They also can boost your mood, enhance your creativity, reduce your stress levels, increase your productivity, bring you tranquility, maintain indoor humidity levels, produce oxygen, and naturally filter air pollutants. You could say they’re quite the multi-taskers.
Houseplants actually improve indoor air quality. Dry indoor air is blamed for a host of ailments like respiratory problems, sore throats, colds, and even breakouts. Indoor plants help to maintain, and in some cases increase, humidity levels by emitting water vapor during transpiration.
And in addition to emitting oxygen and humidity — plants produce negative ions, similar to many fancy air-purifying machines. The negative ions attach themselves to, and effectively remove, any particles in the air such as dust, mold spores, bacteria, and allergens.
The presence of negative ions has also been shown to increase psychological health, productivity, and overall well-being. Some common houseplants even take it a step further in air quality control, naturally filtering indoor air pollutants like formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, toluene, and benzene.”
Plants keep the planet viable for human life, and while some of them are extremely beneficial when grown in the kitchen and main living spaces, the following ones are wonderfully suited for the bedroom, where they could work some magic in the sleep department.
