If a sore throat annoys you, remember that putting a plant on your desk can help! Research has shown that if you keep a pretty ivy, or a philodendron, a Spider Plant or a lovely cactus on your desk, it will reduce the risk of getting a sore throat and a bad cold. Researchers in Norway found that nose, throat and dry skin symptoms were 23 per cent lower in offices with greenery.
You can choose any plant of your liking to make it your office angel!
