Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is called a ‘miracle plant’ because of its infinite benefits. This plant is famous for its benefits on hair, skin, and health. Everyone knows the wonders its gel can do but few people know what it can do without getting cut open.

Aloe Vera purifies the air resulting in breathing easily because they release a lot of oxygen at night and takes in the carbon dioxide we exhale. Make sure to keep Aloe Vera near your window as it needs full sun. Keep it in well-drained soil and water it heavily twice a week.

The snake plant does the same. It also owns a spot in NASA’s list of air-purifying plants which makes it more authentic.


Jasmine is famous for its sweet smell. Some people prefer using scented candles or essential oil diffuser, but we would recommend you keep Jasmine in your room. Research shows that Jasmine promotes peaceful sleep and helps you wake up with reduced anxiety and higher afternoon-alertness. It works better than Lavender.

Get these delivered to you by ordering them through cakes and gift delivery services. They offer same-day delivery, early morning, and midnight deliveries.

Make sure to use porous soil, water till the soil is moist during the blooming period. They can tolerate 4 hours of direct sunlight during summer-spring and indirect during winter.


Lavender’s aroma is known for its relaxing qualities which’s why it’s must mention in this list of plants that help you sleep better. Alongside its other health benefits, its heavenly fragrance induces sleep, relaxes the mind, aids stress, reduces heart rate, and blood pressure. Keep lavender close to your bed with well-drained soil. Provide it full sun and deep watering.

Keep it away from your cat, dog, and horse at all costs, as lavender is toxic for them.

English Ivy

It is on NASA’s list of top 10 air purifying plants. This great climber is best for you if you get troubled by allergies during sleep or have asthma. As it absorbs formaldehyde, which is a volatile organic compound (VOC), prolonged exposure to this may cause cancer.

Keep the soil moist and provide it indirect sunlight. We will not recommend you keep it at home if you have pets or kids as it’s poisonous for both.

Peace Lily

It claims a spot in NASA’s list of toxin remover which is why it is mandatory to mention in this list of plants that help you sleep better.  They are one of the top plants that purify all 5 VOCs from the air and can increase humidity by 5%. However, avoid this plant if you have pets and children at home as they are poisonous if ingested.
