5 Flowers that help you sleep better

1.  Chamomile 

We are all familiar with Chamomile tea & essential oil that helps us relax. The best way to get anything is from fresh. Hop to the nursery and get a chamomile flower for your bedside and one to make your own tea from the blossoms. According to medical studies, chamomile not only induces sleep but also assists in a deeper, uninterrupted shut-eye.

2. Gerbera Daisy

Not only are these blooms good-looking, but they are also the perfect flower for your bedroom due to their ability to increase oxygen. They carry air-purifying qualities so you can breathe in crispy-clean air while in dreamland. 

3. Jasmine

The scent that makes us all go aaaah. Studies show that the beautiful aroma of Jasmine has anxiety-reducing effects. Put some fresh Jasmine in your pillowcase for a delightful sleep or in a glass jar next to your favourite bedside book. 

4. Lavender

We all know it too well, the rich, floral scent that oozes mellow. Lavender works as an anxiolytic (an anxiety reliever) and a sedative to increase relaxation and calm and help bring about sleep. Lavender interacts with the neurotransmitter GABA to help quiet the brain and nervous system activity, reducing agitation, anger, aggression, and restlessness. Perfect to add some fresh cuts to your pillowcase or bedtime tea.

5. Orchid

This gorgeous tropical flower doesn’t need any other reason than it’s good looks to earn a place on your bedside table. However, they are more than just a pretty face. Like many other plants, Orchids absorb carbon dioxide during the day and release oxygen in the evening, aiding quality sleep.
