Breathing Better with Plants

I have always loved learning about the properties of plants and herbs.

I came across a few that I had to share about.

Are you feeling congested these days as we are in the tail-end of this Kapha month of winter?
Eucalyptus helps clear away congestion. The leaves of the Eucalyptus have tannins which increase the fluid levels in the airways which helps loosen the mucous and phlegm.

Another plant that helps breathing is a spider plant. How? It is a mega powerful cleanser within the leaves. There are holes in the leaves that help filter out the toxins in the air. The leaves of the spider plant actually helps absorb the allergens and even carbon monoxide!!

Let's stock up on spider plants!!!

Another plant that helps absorb toxins is the English Ivy plant. It absorbs benzene which can be in paper. Yikes! Better get an English Ivy plant for your windowsill of your office!!
What is harmful about benzene you ask? It actually slows your thinking.

Let's buy a few of these plants!!
