In a world where almost everyone is suffering from insomnia and poor sleep, Peace Lilies provide an amazing benefit that promotes restful sleep. They help to filter indoor air, increasing the levels of humidity which in turn helps you breathe better and sleep better!
A houseplant that can accommodate busy schedules the Peace Lily will thrive even when you forget to water it. It can also survive without direct sunlight, so a well lit (artifically) room would provide enough light for it.
One of the many benefits the Peace Lily provides humans is it purifies the air. According to a NASA experiment, pollutants like benzene, xylene, carbon monoxide, and formaldehyde are some that a peace lily plant can absorb. Therefore, by eliminating 60% of the pollutants, in return, it makes the air more suitable for breathing by adding moisture to it.
The Peace Lily is native to tropical rainforests, specifically those of South and Central America. It’s thought it was brought to Europe some time in the late 1800s and it's adapted well to the UK’s less than tropical conditions.
A brilliant air purifyer and mould absorber. Toxic to pets and children if ingested.
