They absorb toxins and give us a feeling of wellbeing..we need them in our homes.

During times of stress, appreciating nature has a very therapeutic effect on us. Plants help to reduce stress and enhance your mood and to top it all off, they look after our atmosphere by producing oxygen and absorbing carbon dioxide and some filter the air of toxins. The bottom line is we need them and now more than ever, we need them in our homes.

There are a number of plants that remove toxins like benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene from the air. The ones I’ve listed aren’t poisonous to pets.

  • Boston Fern
  • Spider Plant
  • Moth Orchid
  • Money plant/tree
  • Palms
  • African Violet
  • Tradescantia Zebrina
  • Wax plant

To get the maximum effect you need to place one of these plants every 10 sq meters/32 feet apart for them to do their job properly.

Having plants in my home always makes me feel calm and happier…maybe it’s because it helps my family breathe in cleaner air.

    Hey there 🙂

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t
    mind me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?
    :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site
    down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take
    care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    I simply had to say thanks all over again. I’m not certain what I could possibly have followed in the absence of those tips provided by you regarding that theme. This has been the hard crisis for me, but spending time with a new professional tactic you resolved that forced me to cry with gladness. I am happier for the help and as well , wish you realize what an amazing job you have been getting into instructing many people using your site. I am certain you have never got to know any of us.
