One way to ensure a better quality of sleep is to fill your home with beautiful flowers and plants. Not only do they look great and bring vitality and life to your living spaces, but they can have fantastic relaxing and purifying benefits – which in turn can promote a healthy sleeping pattern. Here are some of the plants that you can keep in your bedroom to help you sleep better:
Lavender is probably the most well-known of all plants when it comes to inducing sleep and reducing anxiety levels. Lavender has been shown to increase light sleep, and decrease rapid-eye movement (REM) sleep and the amount of time to wake after first falling asleep! While there are a host of lavender scented products on the market to help you get a full night’s rest but going natural is always the best option!
ALOE VERA –
What’s great about this plant is that it emits oxygen at night time whilst simultaneously taking in carbon dioxide- something we naturally produce when breathing. All this leads to a purer quality of air and a better night’s sleep.
SPIDER 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. With purified air, we certainly get a good night’s sleep!
PEACE LILY –
The Peace Lily is another plant that helps 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 way, you can say goodbye to those irritating dry noses and sleep peacefully.
