We could all use a little more sleep during the week. In fact, over 40 million Americans admit to having a sleeping problem such as insomnia, sleep apnea and night terrors.
But now there's a simple step you can take to help your body get the best rest possible!
All you need to do to help you mind rest at ease and your body relax completely is to store one (or all) of these five different type of plants in your bedroom!
For centuries, lavender has been known to help reduce anxiety and stress, as well as slow your heart rate. This calming property is what draws people to use lavender essential oils for a great bedtime routine. But having the plant in your room will keep you calm all night long!
Studies have shown that aloe plants release a ton of oxygen at night. This pop of oxygen in the air can help fight insomnia and will help your body stay peaceful as you dream.
Just like aloe, the snake plant also releases more oxygen at night than during the day! This improves your room's air quality and can make breathing easier on your body.
Ivy is one of the best (and easiest to grow) plants for bettering the quality of the air. The ivy soaks up toxins in the air and emits healthy, helpful oxygen! In fact, English Ivy can reduce airborne mold by up to 94% - you'll breathe easy with this plant in your room.
Not only does jasmine smell great in your room, but its powerful scent has several natural healing properties. Jasmine has been used for thousands of years to help with sleep and reduce your anxiety!
