How Houseplants Improve Health and Mood

From snake plants to ivy, houseplants are one of the most versatile ways to improve your health and mood (not to mention they can bring life to most any space). Here are a few ways in which certain plants can help you feel better both mentally and physically in your at-home environment:

Improving Air Quality

Many houseplants are known for their air purifying qualities. Dust, mold, and other air pollutants are all things that can make the air you breath less-than healthy for you. Plants such as Snake Plants, Boston Ferns, Peace Lilies, English Ivy, and Spider Plants all neutralize toxic elements that you may be breathing in in your home.

Scent Benefits

Have you ever smelled something that instantly made you less tense and more relaxed? Some houseplants are useful not only for their looks, but for the soothing or energizing scents they give off. To reduce stress, try lavender or get a rosemary plant to help improve concentration or memory. Either way, your house will smell and feel great in no time!

Natural Medicine

Humans have been using plants to help remedy many ailments for centuries, and there are plenty that you can grow in your own home! Aloe Vera, for example, can help treat burns, frostbite, and is overall good for moisturizing and hydrating the skin using the gel-like substance that is found inside of the leaves. You can also grow almost any herb in your home and use their unique health benefits to enhance your meals!

As always, be sure to research any plant before you bring it into your home, especially if you have children or pets who may be allergic. The folks at Simply Green hope you will find the perfect houseplant for your home in the new year!

Have used Simply Green for over a year now for weed control & fertilization. Their service & products have helped improve the appearance & health of my grass in this short time. Taffari has been the technician the last few visits and he is great - super knowledgeable & able to answer my questions. On the last visit Taffari had the service manager reach out on a concern and it was addressed & resolved the same day.
