Poor indoor air quality poses potentially enormous health risks. Asthma, allergies, inflammation, and even cancer can come from poor air quality.

Nothing shines a light to one of those fancy ass expensive air purifiers, but if you're looking for the less expensive, natural option, these six house plants are the way to go.

1. Jasmine, Jasminum.

Jasmine is a common outdoor vining plant in warmer climates but can do well indoors anywhere where there's enough natural day light. Its smell can help improve sleep quality and alertness.

2. Lavender, Lavindula.

Lavender doesn't just smell amazing, but it can help reduce anxiety and stress, slow heart rate, improve your sleep, and may even help reduce crying in babies. I know a lot of new parents who could use some lavender in their lives.
