Summary, etc.:
Learn how to grow beautiful medicinal plants in your home or office!
"What if the beautiful plants in your home could also become a part of your health routine? Houseplants add vibrancy to any home or office, but many also have significant health benefits you may not even know about. That aloe plant sitting on your window sill can be used as an ointment for scrapes, bruises, and sunburns. A chamomile plant--with its pretty display of white flowers--might be your cure for restless sleep and anxiety. A lavender plant will make your bathroom smell delightful, and can also be used as a stress relief medicinal. There are a number of houseplants that are easy to grow indoors and that reduce stress, increase productivity, speed up healing, lower depression, increase overall happiness, and filter our air from carcinogenic pollutants. Learn which plants have which health benefits and then find out how to care for them effectively in your home or office"-- Provided by publisher.
