Health Benefits of Macrame Plant Hangers
The Flower Power generation had it right the first time. There is a health benefit in surrounding your family with flowers and green plants. A good way to grow flowers and plants is to plant them in pots and to hang some using macrame plant hangers.
The macrame plant hangers made great ideas for a craft project or for a handmade gift for a friend. The craft is so easy to do it can be done in just one day, or even half a day. Children were taught to macrame by their moms, aunts and grandmas.
The craft was so popular in the seventies that almost everyone’s porches would be decorated with macrame hangers of various colors and using different types of macrame cords. More plant hangers could be found carrying indoor plants in the living room and the kitchen, where wide windows would open to the backyard, letting the breeze in.
What exactly can macrame plant hangers do for your health? As it turns out, indoor plants provide many health benefits, aside from being popular home decorations.
To start with, plants emit necessary oxygen; absorb toxins and carbon dioxide; clean up the VOCs emitted by plastics, carpet fibers, paint and synthetic building materials that cause Sick Building Syndrome, headaches, sore, dry throats, dry or itchy skin, and fatigue; help people recover quickly from sickness; and create a calmer and more soothing environment.
Having indoor plants removes up to 96% of carbon monoxide from a room each day, according to studies conducted by NASA. Certain plants are known to remove other bad toxins, such as formaldehyde, from the air. This nasty toxin can be found in all sorts of unsuspecting places, such as a new carpet, or synthetic upholstery.
Making macrame plant hangers, or giving one as a gift, encourages growing indoor plants. What more thoughtful gift could you give to loved ones in your home than creating a healthy environment? And what better way to introduce indoor plants into the home than with some updated, modern macrame hangers?
There are new colors of macrame cords now available. Create updated, modern looking designs that will add color and style to any home as well as provide health benefits for everyone. Remember, making macrame plant hangers for your home or as gifts, it is not a simple plant hanger. It is a gift of health and happiness for the home. Keeping that in mind, it’s time to get your macrame cords and start knotting!
