How Indoor House Plants Can Purify Your Home

May 01, 2020

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency found that indoor air can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times as polluted as outdoor air. Pollution in and around your home can be a scary thought...but it's time that we come to terms with reality and do something about it, right!?

The past two years, we have been proactive about reducing our exposure to toxicity and contamination by choosing natural ways of purifying our home.

Choosing organic pesticide-free fruit and veggies, investing in a Berkey water filter and switching over to nontoxic beauty brands [like Primally Pure below] and cleaning supplies have been MAJOR KEY. However, one thing that some people tend to overlook is how toxic the air quality can be of your own home! That's where HOUSE PLANTS come into play...

In 1989, NASA study scientists stated that when plants inhale CO2 an exhale oxygen during photosynthesis phase, they also inhale air pollutants. They purify the air by scrubbing it of cancer-causing VOCs and release clean oxygen.

They do that for us...Aren't plants absolutely incredible?

Our advice to you is to invest in a house plant! Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it will help detoxify your home and is also known to help lower blood pressure, reduce stress, lessen cold symptoms and help you breathe easier.

 
 
 I live in New York City. I am constantly surrounded by pollution due to inhaling bus, subway and car fumes, being shacked up in my studio apartment and living right near Con Eds industrial buildings and smoke stacks. It's important to me to find ways to detox my lungs, blood and life healthfully. My personal favorite indoor house plant is the snake plant! I was gifted both the plant and holder by family - and it was the best gift of all! I place my snake plant next to my bed because they are known to release more oxygen at night, helping me sleep more soundly. Plus they are so cool looking...

Nature is amazing. Go get yourself a DANG plant and thank it for giving you a breath of fresh air.
