The Top Plants (and Planters) to Make Your Home Healthier

Having a plant in your house isn’t just for decoration anymore. A touch of green goes beyond looking fresh and natural– houseplants can actually help purify the air. Plus, if you put them in a sculptural planter they can double as art.

Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you should still keep even a tiny plant. These plants are some of the best for your health and low-maintenance. Plus we’ve included decorative planters and flower delivery services, as well as the best deals out there.

Chinese Evergreen Plant

The Chinese Evergreen is the perfect plant for any new home gardener. It only requires low-light and water once a week or so. Be sure to keep it away from drafts or heat sources.


Jasmine has a gentle, soothing effect on the body and mind. The plant can also reduce anxiety levels, leading to better sleep.


Lavender is probably one of the most well-known plants to induce relaxation and reduce anxiety. Research shows the plant slows down heart rate, lowers blood pressure and levels of stress. Plus it would great on your bedside table!

Aloe Vera

Most known for relieving sunburn pain, aloe vera is a great house plant too. Listed as one of NASA’s top air-improving plants, aloe emits oxygen at night, making for a more peaceful sleep. It’s also one of the easiest plants to grow and maintain.

Another NASA certified air-improving plant, the spider plant also absorbs odors and fumes. The long, slim leaves would look great in any room of your home.
