Beyond air quality, plants just make people feel better. For example, hospital patients with plants in their rooms were more positive and had lower blood pressure and stress levels. Similarly, indoor plants may make people smarter by allowing them to stay alert and reducing mental fatigue.
Aloe absorbs air pollutants. When the pollutant load in the air becomes too high, aloe will develop brown spots. Aloe is super medicinal; the gel can be used to soothe burns, cuts, and other skin ailments. The flesh is also healing to the digestive tract when added to a juice or smoothie. Pick a bright window for aloe, because it enjoys sunny spots.
