Hi, I work in a retirement home where odors are a problem. Even though we clean all the time, the odors are always present. We can not use any chemicals (natural or not) that are not approved by the state but the residents can have plants. Are there any plants that help with odor control or removal? Thank you for anything you can tell me.

plants will increase the amount of oxygen in the air and take out some polutants but I'm not sure about odor persay. I think what you would end up with is the fragrance of the plant interwoven with what is already there. Arabian Jasmine is suppose to have a very wonderful smell and is a vine that might work well for providing a fragrance that is pleasant. For cleaning the air the larger the leaf the better. Ficus and Begonia's have been recommended to me in the past when I have wanted something like that.

Here is a link where they have lightbulbs that work as air purifiers you might want to look into that.
