To help ensure you’re getting enough shuteye, there’s one decorating trend worth trying: lavender.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, lavender has many benefits.
“Lavender has been shown to decrease heart rate and blood pressure, potentially putting you in a more relaxed state,” the website says
“In one study, researchers monitored the brain waves of subjects at night and found that those who sniffed lavender before bed had more deep sleep and felt more vigorous in the morning.
“Another study of infants found that they cried less and slept more deeply after a bath with lavender scented oils. Of course, lavender is not a cure for insomnia, but having oils, candles, or sachets in your room could be a calming part of your bedtime routine.”
Other plants to put in your room for a better night’s sleep include, Jasmine and the Snake Plant.
