Add plants! Not only do they make great decorations, they can also boost the production of workers in an office and make it ‘healthier.’
Below, are some plants that can achieve a healthier office:
Areca Palm or Dypsis Lutescens
The large fronds act as a filter for airborne particles and dust; the fronds can reach a possible of six feet high and have sixty leaflets.
Peppermint or Mentha x Piperita
The mint aroma from this plant, according to studies, can actually increase alertness and enhance a person’s memory and it can also aid in suppressing ones appetite.
English Ivy or Hedera Helix
Studies have shown ivy is efficient at absorbing any volatile organic compounds and airborne pollutants given off from machinery which could potentially be the cause of nausea and headaches.
Lemon Balm or Melissa Officinalis
Again, studies have presented that lemon can in fact improve a person’s mood and increase levels of norepinephrine which is a chemical in the brain that is linked to behaviour and overall mood.
Golden Pothos or Epipremnum Aureum
Golden Pothos’ vines have been said to reduce indoor ozone which is incredibly beneficial as the human body, when exposed to even the lowest ozone levels – like that emitted from printers and copiers - have the ability to trigger chest pains and throat irritation.
Gardenia or Gardenia Augusta
Gardenias have a life span of up to twenty five years – this is a long time for a plant to gradually improve the health of an office. Even the smell of the flowers can improve emotional outlook according to researchers.
