Houseplants Stay Happy, Healthy With a Helping of Mineral-Rich Rock Dust


By pampering your houseplants with mineral-rich rock dust, they’ll thrive and provide you with enjoyment all year long.

Houseplants don’t just add beauty to our indoor spaces. They also provide a variety of positive health benefits by:

Humidifying the air

By releasing as much as 97% of the water that they take in, houseplants increase indoor air humidity. This helps minimize respiratory issues and decreases symptoms related to dry skin, colds and sore throats.

Increasing oxygen levels

Plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, which is what humans take in when they breathe. By refreshing the air and making it easier to breathe, plants make good people partners.

Purifying the air

In one 24-hour cycle, plants can remove up to 87% of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) – things like formaldehyde, benzene and trichloroethylene which are found in everyday items like furniture, paint, inks and plastic bags.

Improving mood

Known as nature’s stress relievers, houseplants can lower blood pressure, boost optimism and contribute to an overall feeling of well-being.

Surely, our houseplants deserve some extra attention! Generally speaking, most plants benefit from occasional repotting to allow for sufficient root growth. For optimal growth, use a 50/50 mix of potting soil and compost that has been amended with an all-natural volcanic rock dust like Cascade Minerals Remineralizing Soil Booster that provides plants with the essential trace minerals they need to stay strong, healthy and resistant to disease.

Don’t overwater! Overwatering is the most common reason that houseplants die. Soil that is wet and doesn’t drain properly will begin to smell and lead to root rot.

Provide proper temperature and light conditions. Different plants have different needs (read the plant tags for details), but most plants need a daily dose of darkness to grow properly. Houseplants also tend to enjoy cooler temperatures at night (around 55° to 65° F). If you maintain a constant temperature of 70° F, for example, you may notice that some flowering plants are unable to set new flowers.

Give foliage a chance to breathe by wiping off accumulated dust and dirt with a soft, damp cloth.

Houseplants can provide years of beauty while improving our indoor living spaces and making us healthier. All they need from us in return is a little TLC!


Cascade Minerals Remineralizing Soil Booster is “Nature’s Original Recipe,” made from volcanic basalt that is milled to produce a finely ground soil booster that releases naturally occurring minerals and trace elements to help plants flourish. Remineralizing Soil Booster is not a fertilizer and contains no synthetic chemicals or man-made additives. It is safe to use on indoor houseplants plants and around children and pets when used as directed. This is what one of our customers has to say:

“I purchased a small packet of Cascade Minerals Remineralizing Soil Booster to try on my cactus plants. For years there was no leaf luster to the cactus no matter what I used or repotted them into.  All of the plants received a sample of the sample packet. The Christmas cactus which is 55 years old (yes, 1957, which means it was a broken-off start of an original plant back then) has gotten back its leaf shine…even the old bark has a luster! Thank you, your natural product works.” – Susan
