In this third chapter in the serie about plants I’ll focus on the bedroom.
Your bedroom is where you might spend the most time of any room in your house. Sure, it feels like you LIVE in your living room or kitchen, but when it comes down to clocking the number of hours you spend in any one place, it is probably your bedroom.
This is why you really want to focus your resources on creating a healthy, happy, stress-free atmosphere in your bedroom. Plants can do that! The plants below are some of the very best plants to add to your bedroom.
1. Sansevieria trifasciata (Snake Plant):
The three-track bayonet comes from West Africa and has many other names, the most common are the snake plant and Mother-In-Law’s Tongue.
Research has shown that Snake Plants are among the 10 best plants to purify the air, removing pollutants such as benzene, formaldehyde, toluene, xylene and trichloroethylene.
Snake plants convert carbon dioxide into oxygen at night.
Most plants do the oxygen conversion during the day, so adding plants that produce more oxygen at night can significantly improve the quality of your sleep.
2. Spathiphyllum (Peace Lily):
The Spathiphyllum comes to us from Southeast Asia and can absorb all the toxins from the air in your house: benzene, formaldehyde, trichloride, acetone,ammonia and toluene. This ability is especially important when designing a new room after a renovation.
When you grow this plant in your bedroom, it can dramatically improve air quality, as it also helps to increase moisture levels, especially in poorly ventilated rooms.
3. Phalaenopsis (Orchid):
There is no need to elaborate on the beautiful Orchid plant, which grew mainly in Asia. Apart from the fact that its flowers are charming, it is also releases oxygen at night and cleans the air of the toluene molecules; Breathing toluene can cause fatigue, confusion, weakness and loss of memory. Toluene is also found in polyurethane foam, which is a component of many mattresses, sofas and chairs.
4. Lavender – sleep encourager:
Like other plants, lavender emits oxygen while we sleep.
Lavender also emits additional components such as serotonin that increase the presence of fissile conductors, which in turn helps improve sleep. Elements of the plant can cross the blood-brain barrier and affect the limbic region of the brain and emotions, so it is recommended to breathe in lavender over time. The effects of lavender can improve mood and sleep, reduce anxiety, and lower stress levels. Lavender may have a positive effect on reducing blood pressure and even help the body’s ability to maintain balance and avoid disease.
5. Bromelia – Pineapple plant
Pineapple plants produce oxygen and boost air quality at night which improves sleep quality. Through the special scent of the plant it seems to cut out snoring symptoms. Since we have it in our bedroom it is much more quiet at night!
