Did you know that stress and anxiety cause over half of all insomnia issues? We live in such a fast paced world no wonder we are stressed all the time. This is why it is a great idea to fill your home and bedroom with a variety of plants that offer a calming effect! Studies do show spending time with nature reduces stress levels, why not bring nature indoors! 

Nobody wants to toss and turn all through the night, and then finally dozing off only to be awoken by your alarm. We all need a good nights sleep to be able to function properly each day. Not sleeping well really takes a toll on your mood, energy, and even immune system! 

So think about adding some of these plants listed below to your bedroom and home to help you reduce stress, feel calm and sleep better at night! Below are my top 5 plants to put in your bedroom and home. But feel free to do other plants as well. 


Top 5 Bedroom Plants for a Better Night’s Sleep


English Ivy: Very easy to grow and great for an air purifier. It is great for those who might have breathing problems and allergens. It is known to reduce air molds and studies have shown that English ivy can reduce air mold up to 94% in just 12 hours.

Jasmine: This gorgeous plant has been known to help reduce anxiety levels and when you are less stressed it leads to better sleep! It has also been shown  to increase alertness and productivity, so that should give you an extra boost after your good night of sleep!

Lavender: I have heard this time and time again that lavender really helps relax and allows you to sleep deeper. Studies have shown it helps lower your heart rate and blood pressure. Resulting in becoming more relaxed. 

Aloe Vera: Did you know that this plant, emits oxygen at night? This is one of the top plants for cleaning the air in your home. Having fresher air in the home is key to sleeping better. Plus you can use this for minor cuts and burns. Just break off a little and rub on area that is hurting.

Snake Plant: Also known as mother in laws tongue! It is a very easy plant to keep alive and maintain. It emits oxygen at night as well, and takes the carbon dioxide from the air! Plus it filters out nasty household toxins. 

You can put these plants all throughout your home, it is known plants are great to have inside. I do recommend to put one or two in the bedroom and some in other rooms. Try hanging the ivy from a planter, if you are in a smaller home with less floor space.

    This is good to know. anything that will help me get better sleep sounds good to me. The English Ivy is so pretty.

  2. What a great post! I have insomnia badly and after reading this I’m going to add some of these plants in my bedroom. I Love Jasmine and Aloe so I think I’ll start by adding these 2 plants. I have also read that studies show that spending time with nature reduces stress. That’s why I try to get out an go on a nature walk along the river a few time per week.

    • That walk sounds like a great idea. I know I always feel more relaxed and sleep better on days I have spent a lot of time outside!

  3. This is the first time I’ve heard of this concept! I’d love to try a couple of these plants!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing! I had no idea these plants could have such great benefits plus they look beautiful! I have occasional anxiety and trouble sleeping so I can’t wait to try some of these!

  6.' vickie couturier says:

    did not know this,,will getting a few of these for my bedroom

  7. Very interesting! I love jasmine but have never tried to grow it inside, the scent is wonderful. I have the others 🙂

  8. I love the idea of putting plants in your bedroom! I wish we could, but our cats eat them so we tend to avoid them in the house.

  9.' April Gupton says:

    Very interesting! Thank you!

  10.' Darcy Koch says:

    Interesting article. I did know that certain plants were good to have to help with the oxygen in the air, but not the great benefits of these other plants.

  11. I love my houseplants and take pride in being a good plant mom! They make me happy to look at, and to watch them grow. I think a plant (or a few) can make any space feel like home. There is a plant for any type of light / window situation you’ve got.

  12. This is advice I hadn’t read before, despite years of insomnia. Thanks!
