It's no secret - here at PlantGirl, we love plants. Plants make people happy! And we thought that it was about time we listed a few of the many reasons why plants are so amazing and make such awesome gifts to send to people or to yourself.

Plants bring you joy for longer

They last longer than flowers. We love flowers; they’re beautiful and happy and bring the good vibes.

But plants are living things that have the ability to grow and thrive. Giving a plant to someone as a gift is something they can nurture and enjoy for a longer period of time, perhaps for years to come!

Plants Clean The Air

One famous NASA experiment, published in the '80s, found that indoor plants can scrub the air of cancer-causing volatile organic compounds like formaldehyde and benzene.

According to their research, indoor plants remove pollutants from the air by absorbing these gases through their leaves, roots and soil. The microorganisms that live in the soil of potted plants also play an active role in neutralizing VOCS (volatile organic compounds which are compounds that easily become vapors or gases) and other pollutants.

Plants Reduce Stress

There are many ways in which plants can reduce stress and anxiety. Studies show that people who live with plants in their home generally feel happier and less stressed than those without. The way in which they eliminate toxins and purify the air contributes to the stress relief that they can provide.

Simply caring, maintaining and tending to your plants can provide a natural therapeutic quality, reducing stress and anxiety. Just like gardening makes us feel fulfilled and satisfied, so does plant care in general.

The colour of plants! Green is a colour that creates a calming feeling and has been linked to reducing stress and anxiety. When we look at the colour green it can create a feeling of relaxation and safety.
