Plants for your home, health and well-being

Plants can help boost our well-being and health naturally while positively adding to our home's look and feel. 

“These days we tend to keep plants and flowers around as decoration or for their lovely scent, but many plants can benefit our health and happiness”

Mint and Basil are great for keeping insects at bay

Want a natural remedy for keeping insects out of your home? Both Mint and Basil can work wonders, thanks to their strong scent. 'Mint is known to repel lots of insects including mosquitoes due to its smell – it can even keep mice away'. Another great insect repellent is Basil, which can be planted around doors and windows to keep insects from entering.

Aloe Vera and Jasmine flower: great for improved sleep

If you're struggling to get a good night's sleep, one of the natural ways to help you drift off smoothly is to place a potted Aloe Vera plant or Jasmine flower beside your bed. Aloe Vera produces oxygen at night to combat insomnia and improve overall sleep quality, while Jasmine flower has a gentle scent which can calm the body.

The Snake plant and Lavender are great for anxiety

Plants have been known for increasing air quality and boosting our moods, but they can also help to reduce anxiety levels. Lavender is known for its stress-relieving qualities – it slows down the heart rate and lowers blood pressure to reduce stress. This is why its scent can often be found in lotions and sprays. The Snake plant is also believed to reduce anxiety, improve respiratory problems and cure the symptoms of a headache.
