Many people grow plants indoors for the beauty and warmth they add to the home. But did you know that plants also have many health benefits?
Caring for plants can help lower your blood pressure. Plants have a calming effect, and they certainly brighten up a gray day! Besides giving off oxygen, indoor plants can help clean the air, reducing dust and absorbing the chemical fumes given off by plastics. Some, such as English ivy, are especially good at cleaning the air. Place your house plants where you spend the most time to reap the most benefits.
