It is said that aloe vera would release oxygen during the night, which would purify the air and help us breathe better. The large leaves of the Rhapis excelsa (bamboo palm) would also have the capacity to purify the toxins in the air. Same thing for the bromelia. In addition to that, the Areca palm would act as a natural humidifier, ideal for people who suffer from sinus problems. Other studies have shown that ivy would help reduce asthma symptoms. The list could go on and on: gardenia, gerbera plant , pothos, spathiphyllum (peace lily), sansevieria , chlorophytum (spider plant), etc. So from a plant and sleep health point of view, we love it!
