The Benefits of Adding a Little Greenery to Your Space
Oh, how naive I was walking into the market and thinking to myself, "let me buy this one plant for my desk." Little did I know that this was the beginning of my plant journey. Within months I would have watched every video available on plant care and followed countless plant moms on Instagram.
With more and more time being spent indoors, now, more than ever, do we need a touch of greenery within our homes, and here's why!
Although we are safe from the harmful pollutants of the outside world, many toxins can be found in our homes as well. From cleaning products to pet dander, the air inside our homes may not be as clean as we think. The Snake Plant, will help clean and purify the air by absorbing household toxins into its leaves and releasing oxygen back into the air.
While other plants release CO2 at night, the Snake Plant continues to release oxygen, making it the perfect bedroom plant. Here are a few more that will help purify the air in your home!
Our day to day responsibilities can sometimes make it impossible to catch a wink of sleep. Tossing and turning, scrolling through our phones until we are no longer able to keep our eyes open.
The best plants for a better night's rest are ones that release oxygen at night, like the Snake plant or the Rubber Tree. The soothing smell of Lavander or Jasmine can also help you relax. Try keeping a sachet under your pillow or a few fresh cuts from the garden on your side table.
Snake Plant | Requires: Little water + allow to dry between watering and avoid wetting the leaves.
Rubber Tree | Requires bright, indirect light. Keep soil moist but not soggy.
