Create A Green Oasis: Nurture Serenity with Indoor House Plants

Lifestyle Collective August 14, 2023

By Julie-Ann Sherlock

Finding serenity and tranquillity has become increasingly important in today’s fast-paced world. With the rise of stress and anxiety levels, creating a calm and peaceful home environment that allows us to unwind and recharge is essential. 

One way to achieve this is by incorporating indoor house plants into our living spaces. Not only do they add an aesthetic appeal, but they have also been proven to improve mental wellbeing and purify the air we breathe. Creating a green oasis in your home is the perfect way to nurture serenity and feel calm when you close the door to the outside world.

Growing Popularity Of Plants In The Home

Indoor house plants have become even more popular in recent years and for good reason. They bring a touch of nature indoors, creating a much-needed sense of peace and harmony. This was especially helpful for many during the dreaded COVID lockdowns and stay-at-home orders.

With restricted movements the norm for months, we craved a little more of the outdoors while indoors. Plants stepped into the breach, allowing us to connect with nature while staying safe in our cocoons. 

Plants can instantly transform any room into a sanctuary with their vibrant green foliage and delicate blooms. Whether you have a spacious living area or a tiny apartment, there is always room for a plant to thrive and enhance your surroundings. 

Benefits Of Bringing Greenery Into Your Home

Beyond their visual appeal and ability to personalise a space, research has shown that being around plants can help reduce stress levels and promote a sense of wellbeing. The calming effect they have on our minds is unparalleled. 

Imagine coming home after a long, tiring day working in a stuffy office or noisy environment and being greeted by a living, breathing oasis. The sight of lush green leaves and the smell of fresh, delicately scented air can instantly melt away the day’s worries, allowing you to relax and rejuvenate.

Additionally, indoor house plants can help purify the air we breathe. They act as natural air filters, removing toxins and improving air quality. We are constantly surrounded by pollutants and chemicals, so having plants in our homes can be a breath of fresh air: quite literally. They release oxygen, increase humidity levels, and absorb harmful compounds, creating a healthier environment for us to thrive in. 

As an asthmatic, I cherish breathing clean air; a plant-filled home is a welcome retreat. 

Creating Your Own Green Dream

Whether you are just starting out on your plant parent journey or are upping your greenery game, you may be wondering which plants are best suited for creating a peaceful oasis. It’s akin to asking, “How long is a piece of string” really.

There are so many options to choose from, but what you go for should depend on your preferences and the conditions in your home. Some popular choices include the snake plant, pothos, peace lily, and spider plant. These varieties are known for their low maintenance and ability to thrive in different light conditions, making them perfect for beginners or those with busy lives. They also look amazing and make you seem like a gardening Goddess/God! 

Whether you have a sunny spot or a dimly lit corner, there is a plant that can flourish and contribute to creating your little slice of heaven. Follow the advice of some of the best plant influencers and get inspiration. Soon you could have a flourishing indoor jungle or flower-filled room of your dreams.

Caring for indoor houseplants is relatively easy, even for those without a green thumb. Many of them require minimal attention and can withstand the occasional neglect. Even regular plant killers like me can, with a bit of training and knowledge, go from murdering to nurturing. 

Create a regular watering schedule, read up on what kind of light the plant requires and try to ensure it has adequate access to it. Occasional fertilising may also be necessary to keep them thriving. By incorporating caring for your leafy babies into your daily routine, you can foster a serene environment and engage with nature on a deeper level.

You can dot plants around the house to bring joy to every room and make you feel calm and relaxed throughout the home. Or create a concentrated area of plants in your favourite chill-out zone to help you feel soothed even after a difficult day. 

A green oasis using indoor house plants is a simple yet effective way to nurture serenity in our homes. The natural beauty of plants brings calming effects and a bonus of air-purifying properties to make them an ideal addition to any living space. 

So, why not bring a touch of nature indoors and enjoy the benefits of a lush natural environment in your home? Start exploring the world of houseplants and discover the transformative power they can have on your wellbeing.
