2. Snake Plant (Mother-in-Law's Tongue)
Snake plants are excellent air purifiers, removing four out of five common toxins. One of the most low-maintenance plants, the snake plant can survive in poor soil and dry conditions and only needs to be watered every few weeks. However, make sure your plant container drains adequately, or the snake plant will rot in standing water.
3. English Ivy
The English ivy purifies toxins and molds other airborne allergens inside the house. NASA has discovered that English ivy is excellent at removing benzene and formaldehyde from the air. Many people want this plant because its foliage looks great in any way, whether it's hanging, climbing, or crawling.
4. Spider Plant
Spider plants are great for the bedroom because they purify the air you breathe, improving your sleep with cleaner air. Spider plants grow in all kinds of light with average moisture, making them easy to maintain indoors.
Valerian root is the main ingredient in many herbal sleep aids. You don't have to take a pill, though, to experience the benefits of valerian. Research has shown that the plant's smell can help you stay asleep longer.
6. Aloe Vera
Another excellent air purifier, aloe vera, can survive without much attention. They prefer bright light but can go without watering. So set them near your window, and don't forget to use the gel from their leaves for burns and cuts for faster healing.
