What are the Best Plants for Positive Energy?

Orchid: This beautiful plant is said to absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen during the nighttime hours. The fragrance of orchid is a natural mood-booster. A tray of web pebbles will increase humidity around the plant when the air is dry.

Rosemary: A fragrant, low-maintenance herb, rosemary will promote mental and physical wellbeing and a sense of inner peace. Rosemary needs full sunlight and excellent drainage.
