Plants That Will Purify Your Home

Adding some of these plants to your home will help better the air quality in your home as well as create an aesthetic.

Aloe plant

While being known for soothing dry skin and burns, aloe is also good for the air. It helps clear the air pollutants found in chemical products used within your home.

English Ivy

Ivy is a great plant to add some beauty to your living space. They can climb structures and can grow along walls. This is great for an indoor space along a wall and does not require too much sunlight.

Peace Lily
