Bring Home a Westerlay Orchid and Experience Powerful Plant Healing, Including Reduced Stress and Better Sleep

Add an orchid bloom to any indoor space to unlock science-backed health and wellness benefits 

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (June 24th, 2020): When customers bring home a Westerlay Orchid bloom, they get far more than a beautiful decor piece. Science suggests that Orchids are in a class of houseplants which can offer a variety of positive mental benefits, including an uplifted mood, sharpened focus, and more restful sleep. For three generations, Westerlay Orchids has built a solid reputation for producing some of the Pacific Coast’s most beautiful and unique flowers, cultivated right in the heart of Carpinteria with effortless at-home care and environmental impact in mind. Now, amid the battle against COVID-19 as well as several social and political stressors, their innovative team shares how orchids just might be one of the best-kept secrets to achieving balance and better health. 

“The health and wellness aspects of adding living plants to any space has been well documented by the scientific community,” explains Westerlay Orchids Director of Sales Jeff Karpman. “With a kaleidoscope of incredible colors and unique adaptability to a range of environments, our premium orchids are a great place to start.” 

A team of Japanese researchers found that actively caring for and observing an indoor plant can help reduce work stress while supporting overall mental health. The presence of a plant is thought to be instrumental in inducing periodic mindfulness breaks, which can help to relax the mind, lower the heart rate, and improve sleep. 

Adding plants to just one room of your home or office can work wonders for air quality, removing up to 60% of airborne molds and bacteria. They also help to regulate the environment, acting as a natural humidifier during particularly dry seasons. Some studies reveal that regular exposure to living green plants can boost concentration, memory, and creativity. Students and employees with a view of natural flora have also been found to enjoy higher self-esteem, greater productivity, and less irritation from symptoms of seasonal allergies and asthma.
