House plants can do a lot more than just add a pop of color to your living space. These plants can have lasting health benefits! Read on to see how a few plants can change your life!

Breath Easy!

During photosynthesis, Indoor plants help absorb the carbon dioxide that gets trapped in your room and release oxygen into your space! The opposite patterns of gas usage make plants and people perfect natural partners!

The Chinese Evergreens are a great plant for beginners! This sturdy plant tolerates just about every indoor condition and is tough as well as beautiful.

A Home Grown Humidifier

Plants also release moisture vapor into the air as part of the photosynthetic process. That means they increase the humidity of the air! Plants release 97 percent of the water they take in, so if you place several plants together, you can significantly increase the humidity of a room.

Studies have shown that using houseplants can decrease the instances of dry skin, colds, sore throats and more!

Dracaenas are a group of houseplants you just can’t go wrong with. Why? They’re among the easiest and most common indoor plants around. Young plants are small and bushy, making them perfect residents of desks and tabletops

Air Purifier

Plants also have the ability to remove toxins from the air. They can get rid of up to 87 percent of volatile organic compounds every day! Our modern, climate controlled homes have a way of trapping these VOCs inside, but research has found that plants purify trapped air by pulling those VOCs into the soil where they are then converted into food for the plant!
