Plants in your home
Hello, Lovely!

Ever wonder why you feel like you can breathe easier, focus better, and simply be happier in a room full of nature? Indoor plants improve your mental and physical well-being in ways you probably didn’t even realize.

Here are some things plants do:

Air quality

Plants improve the air quality of the room, so you’ll breathe better air. 
They also make any room more comfortable.
Not only do indoor plants add color and liveliness to your space, but they also change the physical aspects of the environment in pleasant ways. Plants can be used to increase the relative humidity indoors, reduce noise, screen unattractive areas, and moderate room temperature by shading a bright, sunny window.

Mental Well-being

Plants will boost your mental well-being.
Taking care of plants can boost your sense of accomplishment as well. Any time someone takes ownership in something by doing it themselves, they exude pride in accomplishment.
They’ll help you forget about stress!  Potting plants and actively maintaining them provide an opportunity to forget about troublesome, stressful things that may be going on in your life and focus on caring for something.


Your productivity may soar. Have you ever felt like you just can’t work? It’s all about the way your home is decorated. Those that have more pictures, decorations, and plants have proven to be more productive workspaces. You get reminders of why you’re working and the goals you have in life.


By surrounding ourselves with plants, we are able to create a sort of natural, living sanctuary in which we feel safe and protected. Plants help to give the immune system a  boost. When you get more sleep and feel more relaxed, your immune system is able to work more. 
Aloe Vera can be used to heal sunburn and other skin irritations.


This plant is the star of our home!  Oftentimes, when guests come in, they notice this plant and ask what it is.  I asked for a starter to this plant at my Carmichael family reunion as I heard it was unique and a family heirloom. It was very small and grew large quickly, so I had to re-pot it.  It looks prickly but is soft and fuzzy.  It grows out of control and is stunning. I really enjoy caring for it. It brings life to our home and is certainly beautiful and decorative.

My favorite part of plants is you can start them yourself or get them from someone you love. This can be a hobby that doesn't cost a lot of money.   This is my tall avocado plant.  My brother-in-law started it from a pit and gave it to me.  It reminds me of him when I see it.

I hope you will consider adding more and more plants to your environment to make your home healthier and happier.
