Oxygen Boosting Plants to Keep Your Home Purified!
Snake plants are the perfect indoor plant for any home. Not only do they not require constant watering, you can keep them in sun or shade and they’ll still grow perfectly fine! They’re the most oxygen producing indoor plants that help purify the air of toxins like CO2, formaldehyde, and benzene.
Plants can cause a mess in your home if you’re not careful while maintaining and cleaning around them. Luckily, our Natural Floor & Surface Cleaner is an eco-friendly and cruelty-free way to keep your home clean without any toxic chemicals.
Get Plants That Can Be Used Multiple Ways in Your Home
Everyone has seen what an Aloe vera plant looks like, but did you know that it can help in absorbing moisture? When your bathroom feels a little damp, simply place an Aloe vera plant to see it work its magic.
You can also use Aloe vera to make some killer hair masks, face toners, and more! If your bathroom accessories have become a little stained due to the excessive moisture, we’d also recommend you to use the Santic Tap and Shower Cleaner to maintain their shine!
If You’re Really Horrible at Taking Care of Plants, try this out!
Not everyone is a talented green thumb (and some of us are admittedly more experienced in killing plants than taking care of them). Indoor cacti and succulents are a great way to introduce some greenery into your home that are durable and won’t die even if you don’t water them for weeks.
However, if you have overly curious kids or pets in the house, it’s better to keep these plants in high places out of reach from them or look for alternate plants.

Plants to Make Your Home Healthier

Some optimal plants for the Indian climate are:
- Snake Plants
- Aloe Vera, Tulsi, Basil, Mint
- Spider Plants
- Weeping Fig
- Lucky Bamboo
- Areca Palm
- Miniature Rubber Plants
- Pothos (or Money Plants)
- Flowering Plants like Jasmine, Rose, Lady’s Slipper Orchid, Marigold, Flamingo Lily
Make sure you’re placing plants in suitable locations (depending on how much sunlight they require). Choose beautiful pots to plant your plants in for an extra boost to your interior design. You can always use the Santic Multipurpose Disinfectant Spray to clean the exterior of your pots to keep them gleaming and disinfected always!
When you’re constantly promoting a safe and healthy space within your home, you can experience many mental and physical benefits. Keep your mind and body healthy with indoor plants, and your possessions and surfaces clean with Santic!
