Many factors affect the air quality in the rooms you live in. Smoking, the chemicals you use in everyday life, the heating – each of these creates perfect conditions for bacteria and mold and reduces the air quality.
Plants absorb carbon dioxide and emit oxygen. Some of them are even considered to have the ability to clean the air.
In the 1980s, NASA conducted a study on this subject, and the official report stated that “indoor plants can purify and freshen the air in homes and business premises, reducing the adverse effects of toxins often present in the air.” Here are the top 5 plants NASA listed.
1. Aloe Vera
This plant is easy to grow and requires a lot of sun, so it is best if you keep it next to a window. Apart from the ability to purify the air, aloe vera gel does magic when it comes to treating cuts and burns.
2. Snake Plant (Sanseveria Trifasciata)
Snake plant is native to the tropical areas of West Africa, specifically Nigeria and Congo. This plant releases more oxygen at night, and some think that is ideal for the bedroom.
