Are you unable to sleep well? Let’s try and change the air of your bedroom. These five plants would help you get a peaceful sleep tonight
1. Aloe Vera
An indoor plant which is easy to keep alive, aloe vera has shown to emit oxygen at night and may help you combat insomnia and overall quality of sleep. You can always order them online if you find that more convenient.
2. Lavender Plant
Lavender has shown to help you reduce anxiety and stress, slows your heart rate, and may even improve sleep in babies.
3. Jasmine Plant
Jasmine’s smell has been shown to improve the quality of your sleep and increases your alertness and productivity. This plant may also help to reduce anxiety.
4. English Ivy Plant
English ivy is easy to grow and is the best air purifier of all. It may be beneficial for those who have breathing problems and asthma. Studies show that English ivy can reduce air molds to 94%.
5. Snake Plant
A popular indoor plant choice for many, snake plants are very easy to keep alive and great for interior decorating. They improve the quality of air and overall atmosphere at home.
6. Spider Plant
Not to be confused with the Snake Plant, the Spider Plant is also a champion cleanser of air. The NASA tests showed it to remove around 90% of the potentially cancer-causing chemical formaldehyde from the air. Since formaldehyde is found in common household products like adhesives, grout, and fillers, it’s a good idea to keep one of these plants around.
7. Peace Lily
Not just pleasing to the eye, the Peace Lily is another of NASA’s superstar plants, helping to filter out harmful benzene, trichloroethylene, and formaldehyde toxins.
The moisture given off by these striking flowers can boost a room’s humidity by up to 5%. This suppresses airborne microbes which can lead to allergies and also helps relieve those irritating dry noses and throats that keep you awake all night.
A nice shady position (out of the reach of pets and children) and weekly watering is all the Peace Lily needs – that’s not too much to ask in return for a great night’s sleep.
In addition to cleansing the air, it will also absorb odors and fumes as well as sustaining oxygen levels in the room, promoting better sleep.
