Plants are a great way to get rid of toxins from hair sprays and perfumes and are proven to make you get a better nights sleep. Several indoor plants will work well in bedrooms and other areas. In this blog post, I talk about plants you can add and their benefits.

How do plants purify the air?

Plants are one of the best ways to purify the air in homes, offices, and other areas and improve indoor air quality. They absorb carbon dioxide during photosynthesis which isn’t good for us to breathe. The higher the level of carbon dioxide floating around in a room or space makes breathing harder. (especially asthma sufferers).

The plant leaves also release oxygen essential for us to breathe. Oxygen helps with brain function and memory. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to function.
