As plants photosynthesise, they do something that is easiest explained as 'breathing'. They take in CO2 and expel Oxygen. When they 'breathe', they can also filter out VOCs (volatile organic compounds) from the air, which are known to negatively impact our respiratory health and immunity.
Certain plants are particularly skilled at absorbing VOCs, like Calatheas or Snake Plants. The Snake Plant Laurentii is one of the top natural air purifiers we know. It's a tough plant, very easy to care for. Otherwise, we'd recommend any plant that has a lot of foliage. The leaves are where the tiny pores, which act as filters, are embedded.
When it comes to our wellbeing philosophy, Calatheas are just astonishing organisms. Most of them both purify and humidify your air. The Calathea Orbifolia triggers positive cognitive responses, helping us reduce stress whilst heightening focus. With its oval-shaped, lush green leaves, this plant bursts with life and energy.
