Do You Know The 5 Houseplants That Can Help You Start Sleeping Tonight?

We all have those nights.

Thankfully, some houseplants can help you sleep! Not only are they great for creating calming atmosphere visually, but they also help clean the air and relax you into slumber! Some of these houseplants help you sleep by replenishing oxygen at night to help you sleep better! And honestly, what’s more calming than waking up to pretty green foliage?

The effect of these houseplants that help you sleep depends on how many you keep in your room. A study states that while 1 houseplant can improve air quality by up to 25%, 2 plants get that percentage up to 75%. The magic number is 10. But, if you don’t have space, 5 plants is a good number! The bigger the leaves, the better air quality!

Before we start, I want to state that I am not a medical professional, and houseplants are not an alternative to medication. If you think you have a severe sleeping problem, please contact your doctor or another medical professional. Not a gardener on the internet.

Technically any plant is a houseplant if you grow it in a house? It’s a houseplant that helps you sleep, so it counts.

Lavender is an easy-to-grow herb with purple flowers that make you want to relax in a nice bubble bath full of them. Listen, there is a reason that people have sachets of lavender all over their house! Not only does it smell good, but it has also been proven to decrease anxiety.

And don’t just take my word about it! Think about how many sleeping or anxiety-reducing products you’ve seen that mentions lavender that you’ve seen in the past month. So why buy a product when you can grow an evergreen herb?

If allergies disturb your sleep, this might be the houseplant for you!

English Ivy is known not only for its elegant look but also as a NASA-approved air purifier. Studies have even shown that it is excellent for people with asthma or allergies. It can even clean airborne mold!

English Ivy can be toxic to pets and humans if ingested. So make sure to keep it in an out-of-reach hanging pot!

4. Snake Plant

Aka one of the easiest houseplants to grow in existence. It grows in low light, is super low maintenance, and is one of NASA’s favorite houseplants that clean the air.

Their big leaves also pump out loads of oxygen at night, while most other plants release oxygen at night. So snake plants give you better sleep and cleaner air! It’s a win-win!

5. Aloe Plant

Aloe is one of the easiest houseplants to keep alive. Its fleshy leaves are perfect for healing quick cuts and sunburns on the fly! Here’s an ultimate growing guide for growing aloe!

Tiny tip: If your aloe is starting to get a little mushy, it’s overwatered. With aloe, it’s always better to water less than more. So remove the mushy leaves, and let the soil dry completely before watering again.

Aloe is also a great houseplant to help you sleep at night because it also emits oxygen at night! So enjoy a medicinal plant plus a nightly oxygen machine!
