Benefits that plants bring to your home and well-being

How do plants improve your health?

They purify the air

    Without a doubt, it is a fact that you have heard about photosynthesis. Which is a process of our friends the plants in which they absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen to the air we breathe. This natural process not only contributes to producing purer air, but also improves its quality, giving a good boost to that breeze that circulates in your home.

    In addition, studies have shown that certain plants such as sanseviera, areca palm, philodendron or mother-in-law's tongue can filter toxins such as benzene, formaldehyde and ammonia. These toxins often hide inside us and can cause headaches and fatigue. These symptoms are better known as “sick building,” and they define it as a condition due to the lack of fresh air and the presence of contaminants in closed buildings. The good news is that plants are experts at improving air quality, making our environment a healthier place to work, rest and live.

    His trick under the leaf

      If you live in a place where the climate is very dry or if you use air conditioning or heating a lot, don't worry, plants know perfectly well how to keep your space cool and much more comfortable by increasing the humidity of the air. They do this through transpiration (which is basically plants' version of sweating) where they release water vapor into the air.

      The emotional power of plants

      They reduce stress

        Research has revealed something incredible about plants: they are experts at reducing cortisol, the infamous stress and anxiety hormone. Simply put, a home with plants is a vibrant home full of life. Plants in our homes have a notable effect on improving our mood and raising our energy. Interacting with plants connects us with nature and awakens positive emotions, such as joy and satisfaction.

        They stimulate creativity

          Spoiler alert! Surrounding ourselves with plants increases our creativity and inspiration. The presence of natural elements in our rooms generates a relaxing and pleasant atmosphere, which unleashes concentration and creative thinking.

          Increase concentration and productivity

            Plants not only elevate your space in decor , but also increase concentration and productivity. The University of Exeter conducted a study that found that employees were 15% more productive when their workspaces were decorated with plants. So Plant Mate, a little bit of plants on your desk could be just what you need to feel more relaxed and focused.

            Benefits for environmental quality

            Acoustic isolation

              It turns out that plants have the ability to absorb and deflect sound thanks to their leaves, stems and roots that act as excellent natural silencers. This makes them perfect allies to reduce noise and turn your home into a true haven of peace, giving you that calm and cozy atmosphere that you so deserve.

              They regulate the temperature

                During the summer, when the sun's rays are full, the plants create a cool and pleasant atmosphere. Amazing, right? Its secret is in the evaporation of water through its leaves. On the other hand, when winter comes, plants absorb and retain heat, giving you a warm and comfortable environment.

                They protect you against electromagnetic radiation

                  Specifically, our friends, the cacti that we love so much, have the ability to absorb radiation emitted by electronic devices.
