TOTEM ROAD TIPS: HOW TO PURIFY YOUR AIR

TOTEM ROAD TIPS: HOW TO PURIFY YOUR AIR

July 25, 2017

Poor air quality, odors and molds can adversely impact our breathing, often impeding a good night’s sleep. There are variety of plants that are known to purify the air as you sleep.

Sleep with some of these plants in your bedroom and you will see a significant improvement in your air quality and sleep. Here are a couple of our favourites.

1. THE SNAKE PLANT

This plant emits oxygen at night- time whilst simultaneously taking in carbon dioxide – something we naturally produce when breathing.  The Snake Plant also filters common household toxins (namely formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene) from the air. All this leads to a purer quality of air and a better night’s sleep.

2. THE SPIDER PLANT

The Spider Plant is also a master air cleanser. Recent tests showed it to remove around 90% of the potentially cancer-causing chemical formaldehyde from the air. Formaldehyde is found in common household products like adhesives, grout and fillers so we recommend this plant not only for the bedroom but your common areas. It will also absorb odors as well as sustain oxygen levels in a room, promoting better sleep.
