Plants in the Bedroom

Houseplants are an important part of keeping the home inviting and cozy. There are a few select plants that are especially conducive to a better sleep environment in your bedroom. 
     
Lavender gives off an odor that has been known to induce relaxation with its heavenly smell. Those suffering from anxiety, depression, or even nausea can also use the plant or its derived oil as a therapeutic aid. Its vibrant purple hue makes it an excellent choice to beautify the bedroom. 
     
Gardenia is a sweet plant that can induce a remarkably deep sleep. Studies have shown that these flowers can have the same effects as valium.  
   
NASA has found that the areca palm filters some volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air. A 6 foot tall areca palm can give off a whole liter of water vapor within 24 hours, making it an effective humidifier - making it useful for allergies, colds, or other breathing issues that can hamper sleep. 
   
English ivy is yet another air-cleaning plant. This has been known to reduce airborne particles of fecal matter by nearly 100% within half a day, as well as lowering mold levels by 80%. A third plant revealed to be a good air purifier from NASA’s research is the bizarrely named "mother-in-law’s tongue.”
   
Most plants are useful in increasing the air quality through photosynthesis, which absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen when exposed to sunlight. At night, however, the sun goes down and plants switch up this process - they start absorbing oxygen from the air and releasing carbon dioxide. Orchids, succulents, and bromeliads are plants that uniquely continue photosynthesis at night, keeping your living space fresh even without sunlight.
