Let’s face it, since the break out of the Coronavirus many of us sleep patterns are all off. For me personally I used to be in bed by 9pm and play “hey Google” relaxing music or sounds of the forest. When the world-wide pandemic of the Coronavirus hit I found myself staying up til 2am-3am in the morning. One time I watched Netflix from 6pm at night to 6am the next day. So I wanted to highlight 5 plants that are great for the bedroom to help you sleep well at night. Studies have shown that being surrounded by nature helps lower blood pressure levels and boost immune functions. It also purify the air you breathe.

Jasmine plant

Jasmine adds a nice aroma to the room .Results published online in the Journal of Biological Chemistry from professor Hanns Hatt’s work found that jasmine increased the GABA effect by more than five times and acted as strongly as sedatives, sleeping pills and relaxants. Inhaling jasmine transmits messages to the brain to calm down, and “chill out”, so that you can have a deeper, more restful sleep.

Lavender plant

Keeping a lavender plant on your bedside table will be sure to lull you into a deep sleep. It is the plant with the most well-known sleep-inducing aromas, and is known to slow down heart rate and lower blood pressure and stress levels . Lavender also decreases rapid-eye movement during sleep and reduces the time it takes to fall asleep.

Spider plant

Spider plants can clear up to 90% of formaldehyde from the air, according to the NASA study. Aside from cleansing the air, the spider plant will help sustain oxygen levels in the room, promoting better sleep.

Peace lily plant

Peace lily helps relieve allergy symptoms, which can relieve the irritation of dry noses and throats that may keep you up all night. It can increase humidity in a roomy up to 5%, thanks to the moisture of its flowers. This plant can grow quite big, so be sure to give it the space it needs!

Aloe vera plant

Aloe vera emits oxygen at night, making for a more restful sleep. It is also very easy to take care of, and if you forget to water it, it won’t die on you. Keeping aloe vera in your house is also useful if you happen to get cut or burnt. It also alleviates dry skin and provides relief from insect bites.

I hope this article helps you sleep better. Go out and buy a few to have in your room. For more check out
