I've known about many of these wonderful, health-giving plants from the original data in the NASA studies. However, I tend to be a brown thumb (unlike my mother who was a was thumb).
For people looking for some health-beneficial plants to add to their homes and gardens, this is a helpful list.
Want to de-stress, improve your indoor air quality, and bring important health benefits to your garden? The right mix of plants can do all three, and you don't even need a green thumb for many of them. Incorporate these indoor and outdoor plants into your home.
"Some well-placed greenery cannot only brighten a space but also purify the air - and they're also helpful in creating a more relaxing, restful ambiance in any room," said Huffington Post. "We know that spending time in nature is linked to reduced stress levels and tension relief. What's more, in a 2008 study, Dutch researchers found that hospital patients with indoor plants in their rooms reported lower stress levels than patients without them."
Their No. 1 choice:
English Ivy, which NASA scientists listed as "the number one best air-filtering houseplant, as it is the most effective plant when it comes to absorbing formaldehyde. It's also incredibly easy to grow and adaptable."
Here are a bunch of other healthy options for inside and out.
"Although this plant isn't great at removing formaldehyde, it does remove other chemicals like benzene and trichloromethyl from the air, according to the NASA clean air report," said This is Insider. "Benzene is in glue, paint, and detergent. Golden pothos are also especially hard to kill, according to Rodale's Organic Life, making it a great starter plant for horticulture newbies."
"Thanks to the compound linalool, basil smells delicious and can help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety," -- "It also emits oxygen for 20 hours a day."
Add this leafy plant to your home to purify the air. It can remove up to 1863 toxins per hour.
