Please read on to discover some simple and cost-effective methods to detox the air in your home or office…
Many people are discussing detoxing their bodies. This blog even contains a post about bath detox recipes. We are trying to ensure our bodies are in the best possible condition, so we can obtain optimal health and secure our sanity during times of stress.
We have spoken about detoxing our bodies and minds, now we will look at detoxing air contaminants within the home. Air pollutants are common in every home. Contaminants may be found in paints, carpets, detergents, plastics, plywood, paper, adhesives, etc….
Plants to combat air toxins:
Here is a list of air- filtering plants that can combat the toxins found in every home:
- Peace Lily- To keep this plant healthy, it needs filtered light and well- drained soil.
- Baby Rubber Plant- Try placing this plant in an east-facing window because Baby Rubber Plants thrive in bright, indirect sunlight.
- Aloe Vera- Keep this one in well- drained soil by a sunny window.
- Boston Fern- Hang your fern in filtered light. Like the others, the Boston Fern thrives in well- drained soil.
- Gerbera Daisy- These may be a bit tricky indoors. They prefer bright morning sunlight and low afternoon sunlight.
- Snake Plant- Place this one in bright to indirect sunlight, with well- drained soil.
- Spider Plant- This plant prefers moist air and medium to light shade.
