I spend a lot of time telling you about what I think you should eat in order to be healthy. But there’s more to being healthy than what we put into our mouth… The air in your home also needs to be healthy!
No matter how often you clean your home, toxins in the air are hard to get rid of. They’re always there.
They can cause allergic reactions and all sorts of illness.
But there are houseplants that are able to remove impurities from the air while adding serenity of your environment.
You can give yourself greater peace of mind and cleaner air to breathe just by adding any of these plants to your home.
1. Boston Fern
Boston Ferns are the most efficient air-cleaning plants you can get… And they’re also easy to find.
They’re available for purchase everywhere and usually very cheap to buy… chances are that even your supermarket sells Boston Ferns.
Keeping a Boston Fern healthy is very simple: Water it regularly and give it a dose of plant food once a month. If you live in a dry area such as California, you should also mist it once a day.
2. Palm Trees
These tropical trees are very good at removing toxins like formaldehyde from the air of your home.
Good varieties of pal trees include the Parlor Palm, a Bamboo Palm or a Lady Palm. But the best of all is the Dwarf Date. Palm
To keep a palm tree healthy and flourishing, keep it in a sunny spot in your home.
3. Rubber Plant
If you want air-cleaning plants but you think your home doesn’t provide enough sunlight to have plants, try a Rubber Plant or a “Janet Craig.”
Those plants don’t require much sunlight and they do a great job of cleaning the air.
4. English Ivy
This is another air-cleaning plant that you can buy just about everywhere…
Most people think that English Ivy is a climbing plant that lives outdoors… But if you keep it inside, it will stay pretty compact.
What’s great about English Ivy it that it needs very little care. Just water it and mist it once a week or so… and it will keep your air free of toxins and mold.
5. Peace Lily
This is another beautiful air-cleansing plant that needs very little sunlight and will still bloom all year long.
Peace Lily is good at removing all types of harsh gases… and the plant will even add humidity to the air!
6. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is a very popular plant.
This plant is not only good at improving your air quality, but you can also use the gel in its leaves to help speed healing.
People use it to soothe burns, sunburns, cold sores, cuts, and all kinds of injuries. You can even use it internally, make smoothies and juices.
