Why Celebrate National Houseplant Appreciation Day?
This is simple. The housewife is amazing and deserves to be appreciated. Plants have qualities known to purify the air in our homes. They can absorb harmful airborne toxins that may be emitted by household items or cleaning agents. Having 2-3 trees for every 100 square feet of your living space can make a difference in air quality. Not only do they help purify the air, but plants also create their own moisture in a process called transpiration. Having enough plants in a given room or space will increase the humidity in the air, which is especially helpful during the dry winter months of the year.
Plants not only make our spaces look great and are a great piece of living decor, they've also been shown to have tremendous mental health benefits for those who own them. You can also enjoy the relaxing and peaceful feeling of being out in nature in your home as you surround yourself with the green light of houseplants. Studies have also shown that nature's calming effects can reduce stress and lower blood pressure. There is no doubt that plants can boost our mood!
