Let's talk about some of the best air-purifying plants for your home. These are nature’s best air purifiers that you can have because nature is by far the best air purifier that you can invest in.
Indoor plants not only help to clean the air, but they also help to produce oxygen! Now, you would need something like 600 plants to produce the amount of oxygen that one person might need, but one or two plants in each room can make a difference. Anything is better than nothing, right?
So here are 10 plants that you can grow indoors to help eliminate toxins and brighten up your home.
1.) Pothos. One of the most effective plants at removing chemicals from the air is Pothos, also known as Devil’s Ivy. This plant likes sunny and humid temperatures, making it great for the bathroom with a nice window to soak up the sun.
2.) Aloe Vera. Every home should have aloe vera! Not just because it is effective at cleaning the air, but it’s great for skin care, including cuts and burns. And did you know you can eat the inner filets! (It is tasteless and goes great in smoothies!) The aloe vera plants prefer a sunny window sill.
3.) Barberton Daisy. This daisy plant likes a warm environment with plenty of natural sunlight. It too, is good at removing chemicals from the air.
4.) Dragon Tree. The dragon tree makes for a nice bathroom plant, as it is able to tolerate darker environments.
5.) Rubber Tree. The rubber tree features big glossy leaves that will add to any home decor! It is easy to care for and one of the best plants when it comes to purifying toxins from the air. Plus, it’s also a good plant to produce oxygen. The only downfall is that it may be toxic to pets.
