Make your sleep environment pleasant by adding a plant or two (by Sam and the Gardening Team).

There are many plants that are recommended for sleep, but the most popular is lavender which has been associated with a calming effect that may positively impact sleep. You could use lavender oil to create a calming fragrance in your room.

Making your sleep environment pleasant may help you feel more relaxed, and it is also suggested that some plants have air cleaning properties. One way to improve your environment is to add a houseplant or two. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Variegated Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum ‘Variegatum’) – The brightly variegated, strap-like foliage arches beautifully to create a lovely tumbling effect.
  • Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum ‘Torelli’) – Elegant white spathes are produced, rising on slender stems above the foliage.
  • Variegated Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata var. laurentii) – This reliable succulent is exceptionally adaptable, coping with a wide range of growing conditions and needing very little care.
