One of the best ways to purify the air and detox your home is by adding some detoxifying houseplants to your decor. While they can be challenging to care for, certain houseplants can work like a filter to purify the air. Here are some of our favorites:

  • Aloe vera: This plant can absorb chemicals from cleaning products and also warn you if there is an excess amount of chemicals in the air.
  • Areca palm: This plant helps restore moisture in the air — like a natural humidifier.
  • Spider plant: This plant is able to get rid of benzene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, and xylene.
