Trouble Sleeping?!

April 7, 2018

Did you know that certain houseplants promote drowsiness?  Here’s a list of plants that just may help you obtain better sleep.

Jasmine — eases anxiety and encourages sleep (very simlar to barbiturates).

English ivy —  cleans mold spores out of the air.

Lavender — sleep inducer (primarily lavender bouquets and essential oils, but give a lavender houseplant a try).

Aloe vera — sucks up unhealthy indoor chemicals (volatile organic compounds).

Boston fern — removes formaldehyde from the air.

Snake plant — an air cleaner (and very simple to care for).
