Emma Elwin has spent last night reading about air cleaning plants.

All of my Sunday was spent in bed with the flue and a cough that have been keeping me up all night. So I spent most of my night reading about air cleaning plants. Plants that actually clean the air in your apartment from toxics. We have one of them in our bed room window which is called mother-in-law’s tongue (Sansevieria trifasciata) and I plan to fill our entire home with these kind of plants! I you want to learn more about the subject this Ted talk is very inspiring.

Here is a list of plants that detoxes the air in your home:
The peace lily plant, Dragon-tail plan, Aralia, Yellow Butterfly Palm, Jade plant, mother-in-law’s tongue, Spider plant.

r.: plants are great! while you read about the cleansing plants, i hope you'll only use natural (f.ex beewax) candles, because of the toxic particles.. especially in the bedroom! have a lovely wednesday, hope you'll be feeling better soon. xx

Jessica: I don't get why so many people think of the Sansevieria as boring or ugly. I think it's beautiful and so easy to take care of. http://www.daarboven.com
