Before we jump into dicussing our favorite places to buy indoor plants online, let’s first chat about all of the benefits of having indoor plants around in the first place.  

You’ve worked hard to turn your house into a home, but the new-and-improved goal of 2020 is to turn your home into an oasis.

With more of us spending time indoors, now is the perfect time to transfer your home office, bedroom, kitchen spaces and more into your perfect refuge.  While houseplants are really gorgeous to have around your space, they also have a number of benefits for the mind and body, as well.  Read on to discover the many benefits of adding houseplants to your soon-to-be personal retreat.


1. Plants Purify the Air

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency states that indoor air is often 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air due to toxic emissions found in household items. Yet, a NASA study shows that houseplants can purify up to 87% of indoor air within 24 hours. Plants absorb harmful toxins, leaving your air crisp and clean. Go ahead, breathe vibrant new life into your space by adding nature’s purifier. 

Plants have been proven to clean formaldehyde, which can cause irritation to nose, mouth, and throat from the air within a home.

2. Boost Your Imune System 

Feeling less like yourself?  Are you more restless and tired?  The purified air released by your houseplants will give you a better night’s sleep. Restful sleep enables your immune system to fight off future germs and viruses.

3. Increase Focus and Creativity 

Indoor plants absorb carbon dioxide, they also release oxygen into the environment. Increased oxygen can calms your mind so that you can focus more easily on a task. Studies also show that reminders of nature can produce the same soothing effects as a stroll through the park.
