While summer is arguably the best time of the year, it doesn't come without caveat: humidity. The warmth of the sun from May until August is my favorite thing in the whole world, but I can certainly acknowledge that almost nothing is worse than lying awake all night long, drenched in sweat due to the humidity that inevitably comes with summer. Fortunately for those of us who are not blessed with central air to cool off our homes, Mother Nature always has a few tricks up her sleeve. There are actually a variety of house plants that help lower humidity by absorbing their required moisture from the air. I love a good succulent as much as the next plant parent, but you better believe I'll be incorporating some of these plants into my hotter-than-hell apartment to get through the upcoming months!
