Air purifying plants have a way of taking care of us in ways beyond our means. NASA studies have proven a wide range of plant species absorb and trap a variety of common household and building chemicals released throughout everyday products into our environment. These indoor pollutants directly impact our health even in our most private settings like the bedroom.



According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute sleep sets the tone for your brain to form new pathways to learn and remember information. Sleep deprivation negatively influences cognitive performance, emotional stability and coping mechanisms. Losing quality sleep results in a poor immune system, negative heart health, in ongoing cases it can lead to kidney disease, diabetes, and obesity.


How do air purifying plants encourage better sleep?

 Plants absorb these toxins through tiny pores in their leaves. Through photosynthesis plants are not only absorbing carbon dioxide but also VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) in the air turning them into fresh oxygen. To have effective sleep the environment we’re resting in needs to be clean. Based off of a naturalistic approach a room that smells like cleaning products is not the ideal air to be sleeping in. Products like gasoline, inks, oils, detergents, pressed woods, paints, and adhesives all contain chemicals like benzene, trichloroethylene, and formaldehyde to name a few. These indoor pollutants exist just about everywhere even emanating from our walls.

 It may be added that exposure to greenery relaxes and reduces stress. Stress reduces your chances for quality sleep as it enables your mind to worry and get anxious when you should be sleeping. According to the US National Library of Medicine green space is widely viewed to reduce stress and is linked to mental health benefits. Plants lower blood pressure, reduce stress, and boost your immune system, all important components to get quality sleep!


 Here are some of our favorite bedroom picks:

  • Golden Pothos
  • Peace Lily
  • Snake Plant
  • Spider Plant
  • Aloe Vera
  • Chinese Evergreen
  • Bromeliad
  • Bella Palm


Sweet Dreams!

The plants are beautiful, and were both expertly packed for shipping and easy to assemble. When I called with questions (these are my first plants ever), they were so helpful and warm. Highly recommend ordering plants from Essencia Air!
