Benefits of having flowers and plants at home

Surely we all like to receive flowers and be able to decorate each of our spaces, or even with plants, both for their delicate beauty or for their aroma, but did you know that they are not only used for decoration? Having flowers or plants has many benefits, and knowing this, you will surely try to have them in your home and work more frequently.

Here we mention the benefits of  flowers and plants in your home .

Natural flavoring:

The most basic of all, and also by which many flowers and plants are distinguished: their aroma. When we want to give a very pleasant aroma to our home or work, an easy and beautiful way is to use flowers . It is very important to take into account that it is a natural flavoring, since those sold in stores may contain some negative health effects, in addition to the fact that most of them are an important source of contamination. Plants and flowers, in addition to decorating the place where they are, provide a natural and safe aroma.

Tip: In the case of plants, you can make your own terrariums and thus have something innovative and also natural.

Improve your mood and help against depression:

We all know that the fact of receiving and  sending  flowers strengthens the bonds of union in interpersonal relationships. The gesture of sending flowers can mean many things, both as an act of  friendship  and  love , and in our experience we can assure you that it is a very beautiful way to express our feelings, and of course we can also assure you that the people who receive them they also have a great wave of feelings, from sympathy, tenderness, joy and even  love .

For people suffering from depression, flowers are not only a distraction from where they are and from their daily routine, but are also a reminder that there are people who love and care about them, and who hope they recover soon. The fact of caring for plants, such as watering them, pruning them and seeing them sprout or flourish is a highly therapeutic process.

Relaxation and good mood:

The emotional benefits of plants and flowers are due to their color and fragrance. Surely you have ever heard that colors influence our mood. Well, the same thing happens with flowers, for example, soft colors tend to calm us down, while the most intense ones tend to increase our perception of energy. As for the aroma, flowers tend to put us in a good mood and relax us.

Send flowers like  freesia, roses , or tuberose, they have a pleasant aroma that will surely relax anyone.

In the case of plants, we can also have these benefits:

They purify the air:

As we know, through the process of photosynthesis, plants absorb carbon dioxide from the environment and transform it into oxygen, which complements the respiratory process of humans, since we need oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. This is how plants improve the quality of the air that we have inside our home.

They help us breathe better:

As part of their nature, plants provide humidity to the environment, which is reflected in the fact that the levels of dryness in the environment and dust particles in our homes are reduced. With this, respiratory problems such as coughing can be avoided.

Seasoning and natural remedies:

In any space, even if it is small, it is possible to find a small place with natural light, it can be near a window, where we can put plants that will be used to season our meals, such as basil and oregano, as well as plants that we can use to make natural remedies, such as rosemary and aloe vera.

They reduce static electricity:

Due to their ability to generate humidity in the environment, plants can help reduce static electricity in our home, since it increases in dry environments.

Helps you reduce the feeling of fatigue:

They remove smoke, pathogenic and volatile microorganisms and capture dust, reducing their presence in the air by up to 20%. With this cleaning, the feeling of fatigue that we experience as a consequence of a charged atmosphere is reduced.

Reduce noise:

Plants “drown out sounds” especially indoors and on hard floors. The acoustic disturbance is perceived more when the sound frequency is very high.

They fight pollution:

They absorb harmful gases and chemical particles, which are processed by plants and transformed into nutrients, with the help of bacteria found in the roots. The best results are obtained by having plants of different species at home.

Does anyone who lives with you smoke? Plants absorb formaldehyde (tobacco smoke) and benzene, which is in cigarettes, so buy a lot of plants to combat all those harmful gases and enjoy a cleaner environment (and of course, explain to that person that smoking is harmful for your health).

You will be more productive at work:

Studies have shown that working with plants decreases absenteeism and increases employee efficiency and productivity.

What are you waiting for? Buy yourself some plants, and in a while, in addition to your boss being relaxed and in a good mood, he will see that you are being more productive (note, plants don’t work magic, but they do help).

We are sure that you did not know that having plants and flowers brought you so many benefits, and we know that now when they are given to you, you will be more careful when knowing where to place them, whether near your desk or in your home. The point is that you enjoy them, enjoy their singular beauty and their delicate aroma, and we will tell you a secret: SING TO THEM! just as you read it, singing to your plants helps them grow and flourish faster.
