1. Peruvian apple cactus

With all the appliances we have in our homes, from TVs to microwaves, computers and mobile phones, radiation levels are increasing. Enter our saviour: the Peruvian apple cactus! This sturdy spikey plant can absorb and reduce electromagnetic waves. He's one handsome green hero. 


2. Bromeliad Pineapple Champaca

This pineapple plant can save marriages. Well, that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but hear us out. This is called an anti-snoring plant, because it may actually help reduce heavy breathing while you sleep. It's special because it releases oxygen at night instead of during the day, making it the perfect bedfellow.


3. Aloe

Lip balm, hand cream, aftersun and more. You've probably used a beauty product that contains aloe vera, a beautiful succulent with medicinal properties. Used for healing wounds and skin disorders, among other things, the leaves, which contain the healing substances, can also help with burns. Interested in learning more? Check out our article on the 5 remarkable properties of the Aloe Vera. Aloe is also a popular ingredient in healthy juices and drinks, because it's packed with vitamins and minerals.

A quick word of advice: do not consume or experiment with your houseplant, because the spiky aloe houseplant is not suitable. 

Thanks, plants.
