Plants such as the Devil’s Ivy aka Golden Pothos, Snake Plant, Spider Plant, Aloe Vera, Philodendron, and Peace Lily are great for purifying your home. Not only are they the easiest houseplants to grow and take care of, they are superpower plants when it comes to cleaning the air and creating positive vibes at home. They are also an uplifting sight of colors and fill your space with flowing energy. They also are fast growers and thrive in indirect sunlight. These plants elevate the mood and exert invigorating and calming effects. The Snake Plant specifically is very hard to kill and is considered to have very strong positive energies. It is fantastic for the bedroom because it consumes carbon dioxide and releases oxygen during the night which enhances the quality of sleep. Aloe Vera is known for being a healing plant. They are strong air cleaners and they can identify the level of toxins in a room. For example, brown spots on their leaves means there is a high level of harmful chemicals in the air.
