Did you know that January 10 is Houseplant Appreciation Day? At PLANTation Services, we can’t think of a better holiday! After the bright colors of the holidays have been put away, there’s nothing like a houseplant to fill that void. Created by The Gardener’s Network, Houseplant Appreciation Day is the day we take a moment to appreciate the special benefits of houseplants, both old and new.
Having plants in your home or office can do a great deal to lift your mood and improve your quality of life. PureWow.com says that some of the most uplifting plants include lavender, aloe, English ivy, peace lily and basil. For example, a 2009 study showed that the scent of lavender can effectively lower pulse rates in stressful situations. And, NASA also dubbed English ivy as one of the best plants for filtering air.
NBC News noted in an article titled “Why Indoor Plants Make You Feel Better,” that plants are more than just beautiful. Since plants emit oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, they are the perfect pair for humans. Greenery in general helps us feel more relaxed and calm positively affecting our mood and quality of life.
