I had no idea there were specific plants you could keep in your bedroom that did all these different things..I thought they just looked pretty LOL but now I know and definitely want to try some of these out because I, along with many of you I'm sure, have a lot of trouble falling AND staying alseep!
I definitely want to look into getting an Aloe plant, thought I'd pass this along with you guys! ;)
1. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera emits oxygen at night, helps you combat insomnia, and improve the overall sleep quality. (Also, if you open up the plant and scoop out the gel, it's got amazing benefits for your skin!) It reproduces easily, doesn't need much direct sunlight and doesn't require much watering either!
2. Lavender Plant
The lavender smell slows down your heart rate and reduces anxiety levels. & It's pretty. :) lol
3. Jasmine Plant
The smell of Jasmine has been shown to improve the quality of sleep and increase alertness and productivity. Studies have shown that it reduces anxiety levels, leading to a great quality of sleep!
4. English Ivy Plant
This plant can be super beneficial for those with breathing problems and asthma. Studies show that English Ivy can reduce air molds to 94% in 12 hours.
5. Snake Plant
A Snake Plant emits oxygen in the night while you're asleep, taking carbon dioxide from the air inside your house. It also filters nasty household toxins in the air!
