Health Benefits Of Terrariums

Humans and plants co-exist and rely on each other for sustenance. We breathe in oxygen and release carbon dioxide into the environment.

During the day, plants do the opposite, absorbing our carbon dioxide and releasing more oxygen into the air.

During the night, this part of photosynthesis ceases, except when it comes to certain succulents and cacti, which continue to release oxygen throughout the night.

Inside our homes and workplaces we have air conditioning, improved insulation, and energy-saving devices that reduce air exchange in buildings, so we breathe the same stale air, over and over again.

Construction materials used today, modern synthetic furnishings, computers, electrical equipment, and everyday household products such as cleaning materials, all produce harmful substances that are trapped inside the building. Polluted indoor air is contaminated by organic compounds, which are a major cause of headaches, nausea, sore & itchy eyes, loss of concentration and other "sick building" symptoms. The simple addition of interior plants is a natural way to help remove these pollutants significantly.

Health benefits of a terrarium:

  • Reduction of anxiety/stress
  • Sharpen mental focus
  • Lift moods and boost creativity
  • Purify and humidify air
  • Lower heart rates and blood pressure
  • Higher levels of quality of life

Terrariums really do bring health, peace, inspiration and the joy of nature to the workspace.
