They purify the air you breathe.

Indoor house plants are great natural air purifiers that work to remove toxic chemicals in the air. They do this by absorbing pollutants through their leaves and roots. It might be a good idea to include a house plant such as a spider plant to increase the oxygen and purify the air inside your home.

House plants provide moisture in the air.

They replenish moisture in the air you breathe. Not only do plants purify the air, but they also increase the moisture vapor within your home. An increase in moisture vapor reduces respiratory distresses such as dryness in your throat creating sore throats and dry coughs. An easy remedy for those who are prone to dryness. 

They make for great decor.

Indoor house plants come in all different shapes, sizes, and even colors. The options for decor are endless. Adding a little green can make any space a little more lively with a touch of positive energy. For many, trying your green thumb is a fun, affordable way to bring your space simple decor.
