Must-have Plants

Having potted plants at home do not only make it green and beautiful, we can get a lot of benefits from them. Here are some of the easy to grow "must-have" plants in your home.

Aloe Vera. My mom uses the gel on her scalp, as much as possible, she tries to apply it everyday. Do it to have thicker and stronger hair. The plant also has healing properties, applying the gel to minor cuts speeds healing and might lessen scarring.

Lavender. Based on study, the fragrance of lavender can calm nerves and encourage deep sleep. Try putting the flowers in sachet and slip it beneath your pillow.

Citrus Tree. Aside from providing you with vitamin C, the citrusy scent can keep you awake when you're feeling sleepy.

Gerbera Daisy. This colorful plant is a natural air filter. It cleans the air of toxic pollutants like benzene and formaldehyde which can aggravate asthma and cause dizziness and headaches.

My lola used to have a planter's pot of aloe vera. She uses it whenever she hires a hairdresser to do her hair at home.
