Plants are a great way to add colour, texture and movement to your family home.
 
But that's not all they do!
 
Certain plants are actually really good at purifying your air quality while others provide medicinal purposes. 
 
If you are in the market for a few house plants, make sure you pick up one of these: 
  1. Golden Pothos
It has air-purifying qualities that absorb toxins like formaldehyde that can be found in your carpets.
 
 
2. Aloe Vera
This plant’s sap has amazing medicinal qualities including easing mild burns.
 
 
3. English Ivy
Just like the Pothos plant, English ivy helps to filter the air as well as absorbing formaldehyde.
 
 
4. Snake Plant
While most plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen in the morning, the Snake Plant does this at night, cleaning your air while you sleep.
 
 
5. Bamboo Palm
This attractive plant is easy to keep and is perfect for clearing your air of benzene and trichloroethylene.
 
 
6. Peace Lilies 
Not only do they look amazing but Peace Lilies are actually good at purifying the air in your home. However, it is important that you keep you pet away from the leaves as they are poisonous.
