Having trouble getting some shut eye? Is your brain on overdrive, and you just can’t seem to relax? Have you ever considered adding some plants to your bedroom to help you catch some much needed sleep? Plants have many benefits, including helping with rest. So, here are some examples that might be just what your tired body, and mind need!

Bamboo Palm

Bamboo Palms not only look beautiful, but they are wonderful for purifying toxins in your bedroom. These plants give a warm, and clean feel to your bedroom. One thing to keep in mind? Make sure you keep them close to the window, so they get the much needed light that they crave!


We know that chamomile in teas is often used to help people relax. However, it also helps to have it nearby in plant form. Keep chamomile close your bed, so that you are able to smell it throughout the night.

English Ivy 

Are your allergies keeping you awake? Then the English ivy may be just what you need. This air purifying plant can help reduce airborne mold, and may also help alleviate asthma symptoms. However, if you have kids or pets, make sure to keep it out of reach, as it is toxic if ingested. A tall shelf would be the best home for this particular ivy.


Take a deep breath! The smell that comes from Gardenias helps to reduce stress, and can help encourage sleep. So, fill up a vase of Gardenias, take a whiff, and relax. If they don’t help you sleep, at least your bedroom will smell delightful!

Gerbera Daisy 

Not only do these flowers add a burst of colour, but they can also help increase the oxygen in your bedroom. However, they do require some love and attention. So, if your thumb is more black than green, these pretty flowers might not be the best choice for you.


Lavender is a common plant associated with sleep. It can help you relax during the day, and can help put you to sleep at night. Again, if it doesn’t help with sleep, it will certainly make your room smell lovely.

Catching up on sleep can be challenging. And, while these plants may or may not help you with the bags under your eyes, they do add a pop of colour, and fragrance to your room! Do you keep plants in your bedroom to help you sleep? Do they work? Let’s chat!
