Snake Plant

These low-maintenance beauties are amazing filters for formaldehyde, benzene, xylene, trichloroethylene, and toluene. They are so effective in cleaning the air that they scored on NASA’s list of top air-purifying plants. What makes these plants even more special is that they convert carbon dioxide at night, while most houseplants will only do so during the day.

Lavender

If your bedroom gets enough light, you can grow this beautiful herb indoors. The special thing about lavender is that its blossom and foliage are full of fragrant oil that helps people improve their mood, relax, and sleep. It is also said that the smell of lavender fends off mosquitoes! 

Golden Pothos

While all the plants on this list are low-maintenance, Golden Pothos is the easiest to care for. They work as great purifiers, and they are also very easy to propagate. You can choose to hang them or train them to climb a moss pole or a trellis.

Heartleaf Philodendron

The Heartleaf Philodendron is a vibrant, green, heart-shaped, trailing plant that absorbs and filters the air like crazy. They are known to increase humidity by releasing water vapor during transpiration which helps reduce the chances of sore throats, respiratory problems, colds, and skin breakouts.

Chlorophytum Comosum ‘Spider Plant’

The Spider Plant improves air quality that aids quality sleep. It grows quickly and ends up with a lot of plantlets or pups that you can choose to give to friends or keep for that extra air purification!
