Plants and flowers to help you sleep better

Tips and Crafts

Your environment has a significant effect on the quality of your sleep. You probably know that your bedroom should be dark and quiet and should not be too hot or too cold for you to fall asleep quickly and rest properly.

But did you know that you can make an addition to your bedroom to improve your sleep? Simply by having a plant to make the air fresher and cleaner!

Here are seven plants that will help you breathe better and sleep better!

1. Aloe vera

One of the many health benefits of this plant is to make the air fresher. Aloe vera absorbs carbon dioxide and produces oxygen at night; not all plants can do that! Aloe vera is easy to maintain and easy to grow and looks pretty in any room in the house.

Taking care of the gerberas may take longer than for other plants on this list, but if you put it in your bedroom, you will soon realize that the effort is worth it. Gerberas emit oxygen at night, making the air in your room more breathable while adding colour to your home.

Lavender has been known for a long time as a method of relieving anxiety and promoting better sleep. Its smell can lower your heart rate, your blood pressure and reduce your anxiety level.
