You don’t have to be a full-fledged gardener to get (or want) the amazing benefits of plants. In or around your home, plants can provide a luscious green pick me up that is much needed when your trying to find every reason in the world not to go to work today (call us clairvoyant lol). But did you know that some plants can actually boost your mood for real? These 5 houseplants do just that and even better, they are backed by science.


1. Lavender

Lavender is one of the most soothing aromatherapy plants out there, so it’s no wonder it’s on my list of the best plants that can boost your mood. For years this beautifully colored plant has been used for soothing nerves, improving sleep, stabilizing moods and even reducing signs of anxiety according to this study.

2. Aloe Vera (The Super Plant)

If there is one plant that everyone should love, its Aloe. This super plant has been helping people heal, grow and nurture for centuries. With its high mineral content, aloe is the most versatile plant on the planet.

Not only can you pluck a leaf and use the clear jelly on your hair or a burn, (with all its leaves intact) it can also clean your air, thus boosting your mood and improving your overall wellbeing. I recommend putting a couple around the house, paying special attention to your bedroom.

3. Snake Plant

Quite possibly the most common plant besides Aloe its also called the Mother-In-Laws Tongue. This plant is very effective at removing toxins and pollution from the air. Clean air makes for a clear mind which can also positively impact your mood. The Snake plant can grow up to 5ft with some getting up to 6ft, so I recommend you put one in your main living space.

4. Elephant Ear

Have you never heard of the elephant ear plant? Well its a hardy plant that produces these huge leaves that, you guessed it, look like elephant ears. Now most elephant ears are planted outside, but you can also plant them indoors. I suggest you check out this article on how to care for an elephant ear indoors.

This massive plant has huge luscious green leaves that will make anyone feel like their in the tropics. Tropics mean vacation, vacation means happy. No but seriously, the elephant ear purifies the air and makes your space more inviting. Purer air leads to reduced anxiety and reduced high blood pressure.

5. English Ivy

The english ivy is a vine like plant that is a god send for people with allergies and asthma. English Ivy can remove up to 94% of airborne mold in as little as one nights sleep! Speaking of sleep, did you know that the English Ivy can promote better sleep as well. All in all fresh air is the base for better mood and overall wellbeing.

Oh, did I say that already? Whoops, well i’m just going to keep that right there for those who didn’t catch it the first time..lol
