Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum):

If you are looking for fresh air, this plant may be for you. The spider plant is known for its ability to remove indoor air pollutants. It can clear the air by absorbing chemicals, including formaldehyde, xylene, benzene, and carbon monoxide (e.g., cigarette smoke, household products), in homes or offices. Spider plants can handle irregular watering thanks to their thick, juicy roots, making this plant low-maintenance—perfect for those always on the go.



Aloe Vera:

You may have seen this name in a lot of skincare products and creams, but there is more to this magical plant. This plant can purify the air in your bedroom and bathroom, enhancing the level of oxygen while absorbing a large amount of carbon dioxide in your home. Furthermore, dermatologists also suggest having one of these plants in your home because of the never-ending benefits to your skin. It can help heal cuts and wounds; simply cut a small part of the plant and apply it straight onto the wound. It can increase the amount of collagen in wounds to promote wound healing. I have one in my home and do not regret the decision in the slightest.

You can also use this plant for all your skincare because it helps the growth of new cells, and reduces inflammation and redness. It also works as an astringent that reduces the size of pores, flushing out excess sebum (an oily, waxy substance produced by our skin), microbes, and dirt.



Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum):

Peace lily, also known as cobra plants, can absorb pollutants like benzene, xylene, carbon monoxide, and formaldehyde. Therefore, it eliminates 60% of the pollutants, making the air suitable for breathing by adding moisture to it. It is also a low-maintenance plant; it can survive without sunlight as it uses the bright indoor light from indirect sunlight. It also helps protect you from harmful vapors of the products you use in the home. This includes varnishes, paints, rubbing alcohol, and nail polish remover, among others, containing acetone and alcohol. These vapors can cause headaches, lack of coordination, low blood pressure, acetone poisoning, and lethargy, making the peace lily a great choice to keep your home healthy.



Snake Plant (Sansevieria):
The snake plant is another great choice, as this plant can also purify the air around your home, removing toxins and pollutants from the air, such as formaldehyde, benzene, and xylene. It is great for someone who is a first-time plant buyer, as they are easy to look after, low maintenance, and hard to kill. You won’t have to worry about killing this one.

Having a snake plant can make you feel better by preventing headaches, reducing eye irritation, and helping with breathing issues. Snake plants have also been proven to help you focus better and get more work done. They are great for home decor and are believed to bring good luck and positive energy.



ZZ Plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia):
This plant is the last on my list and one of my favorites. This plant is loved by many people and gardeners because of its special ability to tolerate neglect. Research suggests that spending time with plants and having them around while working can make you feel less worried and stressed. It also reduces feelings of sadness and lifts your spirits. This indoor plant can boost your mood, encourage creativity, and make you more productive.

This plant has been proven to eliminate toxins or filter airborne toxins such as toluene, xylene, and benzene that are in the air and can absorb carbon dioxide from the air. It will make your room environment healthy and good for living, ensuring you are breathing in safe air.
