Houseplants are good for psychological wellbeing because their presence can make one’s home environment more pleasant. But certain ones can also have a beneficial effect on a common problem: sleep disorders.

By purifying the air or releasing soothing essences, some plants can help relax the muscles and promote quality rest. We describe the best ones.

Spathiphyllum

This plant comes from moist tropical countries, such as the Philippines, Colombia, and Mexico. It’s known for its ability to absorb polluting particles and to regulate the amount of moisture in the air.

Melissa

This plant is originally from the Mediterranean but does not require any special care. It is known for its calming effects (it is used extensively in infusions) and is useful for combatting insomnia.

Passionflower

This plant from South America is widely used for its medicinal properties, thanks to the calming effect that lends itself to, among other things, the treatment of insomnia.

Valerian

This plant has been known since the time of the ancient Greeks and Romans for its ability to relax nerves and promote relaxation.

Sansevieria

Although it is toxic to eat, it is also recognized by NASA as one of the indoor plants that improve air quality.
