4 houseplants to improve our well-being

Adding a dash of greenery into your home brings so many benefits with it! Not only does it give that drab corner a splash of colour but can also reduce stress, make you feel more energized and enables you to think more clearly.

Houseplants give you a sense of responsibility too and most are quite low maintenance, so it’s very easy to learn how to look after them.

With so many varieties to choose from, the Team at Tong have selected the four houseplants that can really increase your sense of wellbeing.

ALOE VERA

Aloe Vera is one of the most versatile plants and has been used in cosmetics, medicine and even in exotic food for many years. This plant provides countless health benefits including moisturising and hydrating the skin, helping digestion and supporting a healthy immune system.

SNAKE PLANT

Ideal for your home office, the snake plant can assist in increasing productivity, decreasing stress levels and enriching your overall well-being and health. Along with this, the Snake Plant cleans the air better than most other indoor plants and has ability to absorb excessive amounts of carbon monoxide.

PEACE LILY

Along with it’s elegant flowers, Peace Lilies are well known for their proficiency in purifying the air as well as having the ability to filter out any harmful toxins. They also keep dry environments more moist, perfect for upping humidity levels which is great for breathing while asleep.

DRACAENA

Like the Snake Plant and Peace Lilies, Dracaenas are great at purifying the air and reducing indoor air pollutants like formaldehyde, benzene and carbon dioxide. They can also increase your concentration and focus as well as increasing the humidity in your home.
