Planning to purify the air in your premises? Instead of getting an electronic air purifier, check out the 6 types of plants that are commonly used as a natural air purifier!

1. Bamboo Palm tree
Easy to care for, effective at removing indoor air and more resistant to insect infestation than areca palms. In addition to its high air-cleansing rating, this plant boasts a high transpiration rating (pumps moisture into the air).

2. Sword of S. Jorge
Good at clearing formaldehyde out of indoor air this is a special plant that differs from most houseplants in that it produces oxygen and removes carbon dioxide at night. Keep this one in your bedroom.

3. Areca Palm tree
Consistently rated among the best houseplants for removing all indoor air toxins tested. A faster-growing palm that releases moisture into the air, removes chemical toxins, and has the unique ability to move salt accumulations to selected branches (when saturated, these branches die; remove them quickly).

4. Spider plant
This plant is for removing carbon monoxide and other toxins and impurities. Spider plants are one of three plants that NASA considers how best to remove toxins from the air.

5. Lily of Peace
These lilies could be called 'clean everything.' The Peace lily excels in the removal of alcohols, acetone, trichloroethylene, benzene and formaldehyde. They are often placed in bathrooms, bathrooms or laundry rooms because they are excellent for removing mildew. Do not eat or touch it as it is poisonous.

6. The Gerbera Daisy
This was included in the early NASA studies (Biohome feasibility) and is extremely effective in removing chemical vapours such as benzene from the air.
