We can no longer argue the benefits of having plants at home. Whether it's placed in the living area, the dining room, or your sleeping space—the right plants can instantly give it an upgrade. Succulents can liven up the darkest of nooks while Sansevieria can add depth to a plain room.

You may have heard that there are a few potted friends that can help you sleep better, too! If you are looking for more options that can clean the air, relax you, and help you get that needed slumber, we've listed six more below. Choose a plant from this list and say goodbye to restless nights:

Jasmine

A study done by Wheeling Jesuit University proved that the fragrance of Jasmine has a gentle and soothing effect on the mind and body. The plant can also reduce anxiety levels while improving your overall mood—making it an effective, natural sleeping aid. Aside from having beautiful flowers, Jasmine is also easy to care for—water it once or twice a week to keep it healthy.

Peace Lily

Trust this plant to do more that just liven up a space! It can filter the air inside your room and rid it of harmful toxins. Peace lilies can also improve a room's humidity to avoid allergies, a dry nose, and even dry lips. Just like Jasmine, it can thrive on weekly watering. 

Golden Pothos

Planning to maximize the vertical space in your room? Golden Pothos can give your bedroom a boost while purifying the air. It can survive on indirect sunlight and minimal watering. Since it's a poisonous plant, make sure you keep it away from pets and children.

Gardenia

Those suffering from anxiety or insomnia can count on Gardenias to save the day. Its evergreen leaves and beautiful flowers can brighten up a corner of your bedroom, too. Meditate, smell the flowers, and relish a good night's sleep.

Spider Plant

Who wouldn't love having a pot of Spider Plant at home? It can remove toxins from the air as well as absorb odors and fumes to help you sleep better. The best part? It's a low-maintenance plant as well.

Valerian

This perennial plant with sweet-smelling white or pink petals blooms every summer. The scent can calm your mind and help you drift off to sleep. When dried, the roots can be boiled to become tea that can help treat insomnia. Historically, Valerian is known to help induce sleep and relieve stress.

If you are hoping to keep a pot of this plant, you may want to place it on your windowsill.
