Plants have many well-known positive benefits. Some of these benefits include enhancing air quality and boosting moods, but did you know that plants can help relieve and reduce stress? This reason, among so many others, is why we encourage every homeowner to invest in their landscapes. Landscapes not only help to beautify a home, but plants and flowers have many health benefits. If you’re curious to discover the top stress-relieving plants, then this is a must-read.
Peppermint lowers frustration as well as boosts alertness. Because of these properties, teachers often offer students a peppermint before a big test, such as finals or the SAT and ACT. Menthol is an ingredient found in the plant and used in many bath properties because of how it aids in muscle relaxation. Peppermint is a fast-growing, typically potted plant, that is an excellent addition to any landscape. If you’ve had a bad day, then we suggest chop up some peppermint and add it to your bath.
Chamomile is known as the sleepytime stress-relieving plant. People often use it before bed because it can help to take away anxiety. Adding chamomile to tea is quite popular and effective. Another benefit is the fact that this plant also helps with inflammation. You can grow chamomile right in your garden!
Lavender is lovely to look at because of its lilac hue. It has a calming scent and is so relaxing, that like chamomile, people often fall asleep around its presence. It helps to reduce anxiety as well, especially when it comes to agitated babies. Medical professionals also state that lavender (in the form of essential oils) can help to cure depression.
Aloe Vera comes in many forms. You may be familiar with Aloe Vera juices, but you can plant Aloe Vera right in your garden! This plant is famous for its anti-inflammatory properties. It’s a well-loved plant that people love because of its healing ability. This stress-relieving plant also enhances air quality by removing harmful chemicals as well as reducing anxiety too.
