Lavender – This is a well-known sleep assist as it’s known for its relaxing aroma. There are many benefits to growing lavender in your garden, even the scent of lavender is said to reduce your blood pressure, slow your heart rate and assist in a great nights sleep. If you’re struggling to get your full 8 hours, maybe cut some fresh lavender from your garden and put it by your bedside.
Rosemary – Similar to lavender, this strongly scented herb is a great way to help you get off to sleep. Growing it in your garden, in a window-box, or on your windowsill allows you to cut off a fresh sprig to use in your cooking. Alternatively, place it around your home to add a relaxing and stress reducing aroma.
Peace lily – If you’re looking for a houseplant to help you out, peace lilies were chosen by NASA as one of the best plants for air purification. Cleaner air makes you happier, healthier and will help get a great night’s sleep. To keep them purifying the air, ensure the leaves are kept clean and clear by wiping them down with a wet cloth. Pop a few around your home in a bright spot out of direct sunlight and enjoy them as they clean the air.
