A bedroom with a plant as the focal point.

Six Best Plants For Your Bedroom

May 16, 2019

Bringing a little of the outdoors indoors can do wonders for your overall health and mood. Plants convert carbon dioxide to oxygen, making your breathable air more oxygen-rich. Here is our list of the best plants that will help promote better sleep.

1. Lavender

The National Sleep Foundation acknowledges that the smell of lavender can lower blood pressure and heart rate, reduce stress, and improve sleep quality. There’s a reason lavender is the scent of many nighttime lotions for all ages. Even if you don’t have a lavender plant in your bedroom, using a lavender-scented spray on your pillow can help you drift off to dreamland faster.

2. Snake Plant (Mother-in-Law's Tongue)

Snake plants are excellent air purifiers, removing four out of five common toxins. One of the most low-maintenance plants, the snake plant can survive in poor soil and dry conditions and only needs to be watered every few weeks. However, make sure your plant container drains adequately, or the snake plant will rot in standing water.

3. English Ivy

The English ivy purifies toxins and molds other airborne allergens inside the house. NASA has discovered that English ivy is excellent at removing benzene and formaldehyde from the air. Many people want this plant because its foliage looks great in any way, whether it's hanging, climbing, or crawling.

4. Spider Plant

Spider plants are great for the bedroom because they purify the air you breathe, improving your sleep with cleaner air. Spider plants grow in all kinds of light with average moisture, making them easy to maintain indoors.

5. Valerian

Valerian root is the main ingredient in many herbal sleep aids. You don't have to take a pill, though, to experience the benefits of valerian. Research has shown that the plant's smell can help you stay asleep longer.

6. Aloe Vera

Another excellent air purifier, aloe vera, can survive without much attention. They prefer bright light but can go without watering. So set them near your window, and don't forget to use the gel from their leaves for burns and cuts for faster healing.
