Plant quotes about the benefits they bring to the home, life, and soul

In some Native languages the term for plants translates to “those who take care of us.”

~ Robin Wall Kimmerer

Researchers have conducted various studies to understand the benefits of bringing plants indoors3. If you already keep indoor plants, you’re probably already a fan of the benefits your plants provide. 

One of the major contributions plants provide is cleaning the air. Basic Biology teaches us that plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. This oxygen is essential to our survival. 

Apart from this essential role, plants also influence our overall well-being. A study revealed that indoor plants positively affect the human autonomic nervous system. The plants have this effect by suppressing sympathetic activity1

You can consider home or office plants for more than beautification and the well-being benefits they offer. Apart from the physiological benefits, plant interactions can also reduce psychological stress. Several other studies also point to increased productivity when plants are around2. Here are some quotes and sayaging about plants exploring the benefits they bring indoors.
