Benefits Of Houseplants

Houseplants not only bring light and life into your home, they can offer mental and physical health benefits as well:

  • Houseplants help to increase humidity in your home while reducing the amount of ambient dust. Both of these factors result in better indoor air quality for greater comfort and health.
  • Houseplants are wonderful decorative elements that make your home feel more welcoming and relaxing. Studies have shown that homes featuring houseplants promote lower levels of mental stress.
  • Live plants are also associated with better health; people living in homes with plants are less likely to suffer from high blood pressure, chronic pain, and insomnia.
  • Some houseplants are extremely efficient at removing toxins from your indoor air, which improves the breathability of the air inside your home.
