Filter Allergens with Plants

If you are having trouble with allergies, trying adding plants to your home! The air we breathe indoors can be some of the most toxic air we breathe daily. Having plants in the home can actually help purify the air by absorbing the toxins through their leaves. By absorbing the toxins we breathe, plants can help reduce the effects of asthma, allergies, and reactions to molds. Larger leafed plants are considered the best choices, like areca palm, reed palm, and Boston ferns. Other plant varieties are: snake plants, Christmas cactus, bamboo palm, and gerbera daisy.[1]

Remember to keep your plants healthy and it’s recommended to keep a 6-inch plant for every 100 square feet of space in your home for maximum filtering.
