As you begin to prepare your home for the winter ahead, along with cozy throw blankets, soft pillows, and trending décor, you'll want to bring a bit of wildlife into your home (and we're not talking about animal prints). Many varieties of plants act as natural air purifiers, according to a widely cited study NASA conducted on the matter back in 1989. Additionally, a more recent study found that certain types can actually eliminate ozone (the main component of air pollution) indoors as well. These plants provide your home with fresh, clean air even when the weather outside grows cold and biting and desire to go outside dwindles.

Look no further than Amazon's wide selection of live indoor plants to ready your home for the winter. From overgrown ferns to sleek bamboo palms, you can take your pick of clean-air plants that not only look good but will keep you feeling great all season long. Shop the best clean air plants from Amazon below and don't forget to invest in the perfect plant stand while you're at it.
