Here is part 2 of Monday’s post, house plants with health benefits that you might not know about. I had terrible asthma as a kid, but my aunt took me to the fields every Sunday, and we would pick wildflowers. It’s one of the most beautiful memories I remember of my childhood. Sadly, now most flowers scents give me a headache for an unknown reason.
A gentle scent of it I can handle, but lavender scented candles bother my nose.
- Helps with anxiety, depression
- Improves with restlessness and sleeping
- Likes the sun
- Prefer well-drained soil
- Needs deep watering, but be careful not to water them very often
- It helps with mould, therefore allergies
- May help with asthma or difficulty breathing at night
Note: English Ivy is poisonous, so it needs to be kept out of reach from kids and pets. (This makes it impossible for me to own because my dog end up finding a way to reach it)
- Thrives under fluorescent light but not direct sunlight
- The soil needs to be moist but soggy
I have a feeling that I mixed up the spider plant with the Snake plant. I’m not sure which type of plant there was at my school. The leaves look so similar.
- Better Air Quality in the room
This Snake Plant is one of the easiest plants to take care of; they barely need to be watered and don’t the sun.
It’s a wrap from my end for today, and I hope you enjoyed this post too.
