Trees and plants are literally the lungs of the Earth – they produce oxygen through photosynthesis and improve the quality of the air both outside and in the homes we live in. Plants and trees filter toxins, bio effluents and microbes from the air while also moisturizing it.
Plants intake carbon oxide while releasing oxygen during the day, while intaking oxygen and releasing carbon dioxide during the night. However, there are some plants that can filter the air in your bedroom and release oxygen during the night thanks to their ability to perform Crassulacean Acid Metabolism (CAM), a special type of photosynthesis.
Millions of people in the world are having sleeping problems which may lead to adverse side-effects and will definitely affect the quality of your life. Experts suggest trying a new mattress or consuming teas or sleeping pills, but these methods only work for a short time and aren’t a real solution. However, you should know that you can resolve the problem naturally by putting certain plants in your bedroom which will keep your air clean and help you sleep better.
Here are 3 lants ideal for your bedroom:
- Spider plant
According to NASA, the spider plant can eliminate up to 90% of airborne formaldehyde which is a known carcinogen. This harmful compound is found in anything from adhesives to cigarettes and is highly dangerous, which is why the spider plant is so valuable. Besides cleaning the air in your bedroom, the plant will also absorb fumes and odors from the air while keeping the oxygen levels overnight stable.
- Snake plant
The snake plant has an extraordinary ability to convert carbon dioxide to oxygen overnight. Experts recommend putting a couple of these plants in your bedroom. They will clean formaldehyde and other toxins from your air and help you sleep better. Formaldehyde is released by plywood, drapes, adhesives, furniture, fabrics, paints and varnishes, so you may want to put the snake plant in your bedroom in order to get rid of it.
- Peepal tree
Ficusregiliosa, also known as the peepal tree, is native to Southeast Asia, India, China and the Himalayan mountains. Like the other two plants, it can also perform Crassulacean Acid Metabolism and release oxygen overnight, which is why it’s ideal to have it in your bedroom.
If you’re having problems with your sleep, put these plants in your bedroom and you should notice immediate results.
