The One Thing You Didn’t Know You Should Keep In Your Shower

If you don’t have a plant—yes, a plant—in your shower, you should probably head to your local nursery and pick one up, like now. According to Pinterest, searches for “shower plants” have spiked by 302%—and it’s easy to see why. Not only do shower plants turn your bathroom into a veritable oasis, they also boast some pretty amazing health benefits. Plants improve air quality by helping filter out toxins like formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, ammonia and toluene. (Prolonged exposure to these chemicals can lead to issues like itchy eyes, sore throat and nosebleeds.) Also, keeping plants in your bathroom can help reduce mold-causing moisture in the air, and eliminate nasty bacteria. And indoor plants have been shown to help reduce stress, thus making your bathing routine that much more zen. Convinced? Look below for some inspiration.
