This is why it is common to see parents using it to relax their baby before sleeping. And who does not fall for its delicious perfume which transports us directly to Provence?

The good news ? Like aloe vera, this plant is very easy to care for. No need to have a green thumb to adopt it!

This is another plant known to promote deep sleep. It is valerian, a plant with sedative properties. A Japanese experiment would have shown in 2004 that the inhalation of valerian would intervene in the regulation of fear and anxiety. In other words, it creates a more relaxing atmosphere at bedtime!

5. English ivy

If English ivy is a plant compatible with the room, it is because it easily filters CO2 and pollutants such as benzene, toluene, trichlorethylene or xylene. It is also a great ally for people suffering from allergies, asthma and any other respiratory problem. Its mere presence can remove almost all of the humidity from a room.

6. The sacred basil
