The five best houseplants that help you sleep better

Apart from being decorative, house plants are also highly beneficial for your health. Some are known for their calming and cleansing effects, and can improve your quality of sleep.

Areca Palm

This plant purifies the air and removes toxins and carbon dioxide. It also releases copious amounts of moisture into the air, which makes it particularly useful during the winter months when your heating system dries out the air.

Aloe Vera

In addition to its healing ability, Aloe Vera is the most effective plant when it comes to cleaning out potentially hazardous chemicals like formaldehyde. It emits oxygen at night, which is not usually typical for plants. It also releases volatile, which has a positive effect on your immunity.

Ficus Benjamina

Benjamina is the number 1 air-purifying plant. It removes more than 70% of benzene, ammonia, toluene, and other harmful impurities from the air that may be emitted from low-quality synthetic stuff like linoleum and chipboard. It processes all these compounds, as well as destroying half of the existing microbes. It will improve the overall quality of your sleep and look really good in your bedroom.

Sansevieria Trifasciata

This plant is good for your respiratory and immune system. It helps to reduce headaches and high blood pressure. Like aloe, it produces oxygen and removes carbon dioxide from the air at night. Your slumber will definitely be more restful with Sansevieria Trifasciata in your bedroom.

Boston Fern

Boston Fern is rich in essential oils, flavonoids, and other substances. Therefore, this flower will be an excellent regulator for your nervous system and help you to cope with stress.
