Bedroom Plants That Help To Improve Your Sleep

girl-with-plants-in-bedroom

For those who are keeping up with the Joneses, bringing the outside indoors is one of the biggest interior design trends. Aside from their aesthetic appeal, plants bring positive energy and health benefits into the home, specifically in the bedroom. They may not make the magic happen in a traditional sense, but they may help you sleep more soundly, and that may be the magic you’re looking for.

Insomnia and sleep apnea are two of the primary conditions that result in interrupted sleep and irregular circadian rhythm. Whether your breathing is causing you to sleep poorly, or high stress levels & nonstop thoughts are keeping you awake, placing the following plants in your bedroom can help to improve your sleep and your sleeping environment.

Ficus Tree:

The ficus tree is often considered to be merely decorative, a plant that makes an office or living room less mundane. Ficus trees help to remove 70% of benzene, ammonia, toluene, and other harmful materials, which are emitted from poor quality furniture, from the air. By removing these pathogens from the air in your bedroom, your breathing will benefit, making the ficus tree an excellent plant for those with sleep apnea or allergies.

Jasmine:

The small white flowers of a jasmine plant are visually stunning and the scent, which is often used in its essential oil, is sweet and relaxing. Jasmine plants are easy to take care of and survive in small pots, making them ideal for placing near the bed (perhaps on your dresser, windowsill, or night stand). Studies have shown that jasmine’s scent has helped to reduce anxiety levels and improve overall sleep quality.

Aloe Vera:

Known for its myriad medicinal properties, aloe vera is always beneficial to have in or around the house. Because it produces a lot more oxygen at night, aloe vera helps to improve the air quality of the space it occupies. This makes it a great plant to have in the bedroom because it means that the air you breathe is less harmful to the lungs and immune system. The higher amount of oxygen can help you fall asleep more easily. If you ever have a skin irritation, sunburn, scrape, or dry skin, you can always cut one of the leaves and apply the gel to promote natural healing.

Valerian:

Valerian has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for those with insomnia. Brewing the root of the plant into a tea and drinking it has helped to induce sleep and helped people remain asleep. Alternatively, the flowers have been used in aromatherapy to improve sleep quality. If you find that you struggle to fall asleep, keep a valerian plant in your bedroom. You can run a bath about an hour or two before bed and add several valerian petals to the water to create a calming bath. Be sure to keep the plant near a windowsill because it requires about six hours of sunlight per day.

Snake Plant:

Sometimes referred to as “Mother-in-Law’s Tongue,” the snake plant emits oxygen at night to help improve the air around you. As stated before, improving the air quality can help you sleep more soundly. Snake plants help to remove harmful chemicals, including xylene, toluene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene from the air. Believe it or not, formaldehyde commonly circulates inside the house because it is in a lot of commercial hairsprays. This chemical can lead to respiratory problems, so keep a snake plant in the bedroom to purify the air.

Peace Lily:

The peace lily is similar to aloe vera and the snake plant, in that it helps to clean the air. NASA found that it is also efficient at increasing the humidity in a room by up to 5%. While you are sleeping, inhaling air that is clean and mildly humid can ease your breathing and make you less susceptible to developing colds or respiratory conditions. The peace lily plant requires minimal care, only requiring water once a week.

    Q: I was informed my two year old son has sleep apnea, and requires surgery. During his sleep, he stops breathing for several seconds. This worries me! What herbs can he take so he can have a normal sleep?

    A:

    Herbs can only assist! They are not the solution! I would recommend that he doesn't sleep on a pillow. He needs a bed that allows his body to slant, so his head will be lower than his feet. This way, oxygen can rush to his brain. My sleep article is being finished and may be up near the end of April. Please stay tuned to Dherbs.com! Make sure you get a guarantee that surgery will solve the problem. Surgery is always a big risk.

    Q: Thanks for all of the information which is very beneficial I must say. My question to you is what's the best type of aloe vera juice to drink? Also I have heard that the gel from the plant can be mixed into a smoothie, is that true? Greetings! As far as the best brand I really wouldn't know as there are a few good brands on the market. Just make sure your aloe vera juice is at 99% pure and with no additives. Aloe gel can be added to a fruit smoothie though

    A:

    I personally wouldn't add it to a fruit smoothie.

    Q: I have a client that had her thyroid removed, the doctors have her on 3 grains of the natural...well natural for a pig. Thyroid. She couldn't sleep so they put her on ativan. Which is making her crazy (between you and I) She is still not sleeping and feeling agitated and this drug is causing her anxiety. I feel it has built up in her system and she has to dose down off of it. Do you have anything that would help her sleep? I have already suggested your thyroid blend. However, I didn't know if it could really help her as they removed her thyroid. So perhaps she does need the grains, as her body can no longer produce it on her own. I would really like to get her on natural as possible stuff so we can see what is physical and what we can work on energetically. Right now she feels like an energetic mess. Any suggestions?

    A:

    I RECOMMEND FOR HER (TO INDUCE SLEEP) OUR NERVES FORMULA (6 CAPSULES BEFORE BEDTIME) AND CALMING INSPIRANT. AND BY ALL MEANS SHE NEEDS A NATURAL THYROID FORMULA (I.E. THYRIOD FORMULA AND IODINE PHOSPHATE. IF SHE FEELS LIKE AN ENERGETIC MESS, SOME SERIOUS CHAKRA BALANCING/ALIGNMENT IS NEEDED.

    Q: I gave my daughter 1 capsule of BRAIN TUNER every morning for about two weeks now. She now has a mild to average seizure every day instead of twice or three times a week. And since taken this Brain Tuner two weeks ago she has had two bad attacked. Normally she will get a bad attack every 2 - 3 weeks once. Most of her attack come during her sleep or during an afternoon nap, i.e. she will wake up from this sleep/nap and stay still for 30 sec - 1 minutes and the attack will come and her entire palms and feet will turn cold and heart starting to beat very fast. And once in a while if she does not get enough sleep she will get a hard attack out of the blue during the day otherwise most of the seizure attack during her sleep. Does this Brain Tuner stimulate her brain and causes the attack? What other remedy should I take to cut down this seizure?

    A:

    Sounds like the body (brain) is being greatly regulated, but if the BRAIN TUNER is speeding up the attack of seizures, abstain from using it and just give OXY-DROPS in glass or cup or water (20 drops per cup/glass). Normally a thing increases before it decreases but if this causes concern then abstain and try something else.

    Q: Hey Gary here are my challenge I'm 43 been trying to lose weight, I start on a program and stop once I don't see any results. I tried the Detox I think I lost about 5 pounds, I work at night and have a part time jobs seeing private patients in the day so my sleep pattern is little maybe I get 4 hrs of sleep I'm having problems getting this weight off. I also want to mention when I do exercise my joints swell so I try to keep it low impact. I also have sweet tooth so I get these cravings here and there more so when I'm at work at night. Hopefully you can help me. Thanks....Lakeisha

    A:

    Hi, thanks for the question.

    Lets go through one thing at a time. Your overall schedule and lifestyle is not healthy and will likely sabotage your health goals. Receiving so little sleep will prevent major weight loss because your body cannot cleanse and cannot recharge. You must repay your energy debt before you can properly lose weight. Your body is always in a state of playing catch-up to the workload you are giving it. It stores fat because it doesn't have the
    energy to properly function. I understand crazy schedules but they will not get you the results you desire. I would focus on trying to find a more balanced or healthier schedule before adding the stress of losing weight to an already overworked body.

    Your body has been come toxic and inflamed from a toxic lifestyle. A high carb-high raw vegan diet will help ease your suffering the most. A high carb (fruit based) diet will help replenish your energy stores and reduce
    nutritional stress. To learn more about how a healthy vegan diet can help you reach your goals please consider the following eBooks found at Dherbs.com.

    "Go Vegan the Healthy way" or
    "Lose weight the healthy way"

    As far as your mindset is concerned an all or nothing approach rarely breeds success. Especially when it come to regaining health or losing weight. It takes time and patience. I would recommend checking out the DVD
    "fat sick and nearly dead". It's a fascinating look at how you can quickly go from a health zero to a health hero in the shortest time. Every single person on the planet has a sweet tooth. Those who say they don't usually are hopped up on caffiene or other drugs and pharmaceuticals. Every cell in the body runs on glucose. The brain eats up a small apple and a half worth of glucose every hour. Eating a high carb-lower fat diet will give you an energy abundance, reduce overall stress, and help you lose weight.

    Hope this helps,
