Air Purifying Plants

What is one of the most refreshing places to spend time at? The beach, a snowy mountain, a wooded trail, or something in nature? Actually, spending time outdoors is vital for a healthful, long life. Research proves that nature uplifts mood, reduces stress, increases life span, and even protects against kidney disease, lung disease, and many other diseases.
While, breathing in fresh air outside is most optimal for our bodies, the fact still remains that most of us spend 90% of our time indoors.
Is My Home Dangerous?
It’s scary to think the place you find most comforting could actually be detrimental to your health. Is it possible that the air in your home could actually be full of toxic debris that you are constantly inhaling?
These toxins may come from formaldehyde, benzene, carbon monoxide, ozone, radon, molds, animal bacteria, dust mites, cigarette smoke, paints, new furniture, cleaning products, hair products, to name a few.
Thank God for nature, because plants actually have an amazing capability to scrub the air of the toxins.
Placing plants in your home rejuvenates life in the atmosphere! Simply being around plants actually promotes wellness, just like adventuring outdoors!
Since we spend more time in bed than just about anywhere else, be sure to have one of these in your bedroom!
