These Plants Are Oxygen Bombs. You Must Have at Least ONE of Them to Refresh Your Home!

Plants really are the backbone of all life on Earth and an essential resource for human health and well-being. Just think about how much your everyday life depends on plants.

Plants we grow in our own homes need to possess the ability to clean the air of both mold and toxins and produce the oxygen we breathe.

A study conducted by NASA on domestic plants has found that certain types of plants have the “power” to filter the air we breathe as well as remove some organic compounds that evaporate better than others.

Such plants also filter the air from numerous building materials, paint, dust, wood etc.

Here are 6 plants you need to in your home to refresh and purify the air you breathe:


This plant is great because it can raise oxygen level in the home. It also absorbs carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and formaldehyde. Just one aloe plant can easily achieve what 9 biological air purifiers can.

Ficus (FicusElastica)

This awesome plant is very easy to maintain because of the fact that it does not need a lot of light. Ficus is extremely effective for cleansing the air of formaldehyde. However, make sure to be careful with it if you have pets or small children because this plant’s leaves can be poisonous.

Ivy (Hedera Helix)

This plant should be present in every home. Ivy is able to remove up to 60% of the toxins present the air and up to 58% of feces particles within 6 hours from the moment it is brought in the area.

Spider plant (ChlorophytumComosum)

Spider plant can photosynthesize even in low light. 

It also excellently absorbs toxins present in the air, such as styrene, carbon monoxide, and formaldehyde, as well as gasoline. One spider plant can effectively purify the air in almost 200 square meters of space.

Snake plant (SansevieriaTrifasciata “Laurentii”

‘The snake plant’ as itss known is almost indestructible! Having it in the home it great. It is extremely resistant and only needs very little light in order to make photosynthesis. Besides being able to remove toxins, the plant is great for keeping it in the bedroom because it is able to produce oxygen at night.

Peace lilies (“Mauna Loa” Spathiphyllum) – They are excellent when it comes to removing chemicals and toxins from the air. This herb also filters trichloroethylene from the air as well as formaldehyde.

NASA recommends having between 15 and 20 such plants in a 500 square meters area. This means that 3 to 4 plants are about right for an 80 square meter area.
