NASA Reveals A List Of The Best Air Cleaning Plants For Your Home

Having a happy, healthy home is at the top of many priorities. Clean air is also important, especially for those with asthma and allergies.

While most homeowners and renters simply invest in air purifiers, we tend to forget that mother nature can do just as good of a job, if not better, than any manufactured air purifier can.

Thanks to the brilliant individuals working at NASA who conducted the Clean Air Study, we now have strong evidence stating plants are extremely effective at removing harmful chemicals from your household. Chemicals that include benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and ammonia.

All of which have been linked to negative health effects like headaches, dizziness, eye irritation, and others.

According to the 27-year-old study, the Florist’s Mum and the Peace Lily are the best air purifying plants you can have in your household.
