In recent years we have heard more often about the benefits that plants bring to our health.

Because there are several studies that prove their veracity, many people and companies have invested heavily in buying more plants and building gardens.


As there isn’t always the possibility of having outside spaces that allows the creation of gardens, many people bet on small vertical gardens or even design projects that contemplate interior gardens.


But before we show you some interior garden ideas to inspire you, we want to introduce you to 5 health benefits offered by plants:


1 – Help reduce stress


Numerous clinical studies have proven that plants are actually effective in reducing stress, anxiety and fatigue. Plants have the ability to make you feel more optimistic and happy. So, basically, the plants make your brain work so much better.


2 – Help prevent diseases


It’s not common knowledge, but the plants help in preventing flu, headaches, allergies and also help in lowering blood pressure. If you smoke or live with a smoker, a plant can help you remove all the chemicals produced by cigarettes that float in the air.


3 – Help to clean the air


In our previous articles, we have spoken of plants as one of the great trends these days, but the truth is that they are much more than a beautiful touch in the interior decoration. Plants convert carbon dioxide into oxygen and help renew the air in our homes, making it purer.


4 – Help you breathe better


As we told you before, plants convert carbon dioxide into oxygen and, of course, this has atruly positive impact on our health, preventing disease. In addition, the plants also help us breathe better by providing pure oxygen to inhale. So if we think about it a little, we can conclude that we owe our survival to the plants.


5 – Bring well-being and happiness


The plants are magical and those who like them know what we’re talking about.

The beauty of plants not only makes your home or workplace look fresher, livelier and beautiful, it also helps to elevate our mood and overall well-being. They are a therapy accessible to everyone and bring countless benefits to mental and physical health.


The benefits of plants are countless. The only thing you should keep in mind is that they need attention and care.

However, there are plants, such as succulents, for example, that don’t need extreme care to stay full of life. Therefore, we advise you to analyze your needs and tastes well when buying plants for your home and if you choose to build an indoor garden.
