Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that consists of repeated breathing disruptions during sleep. It also manifests itself through snoring and fatigue even after a long night sleep.

Sleep apnea can lead to heart problems and other complications, which is why it’s very important to be treated.

On the other hand, insomnia is a sleep disorder that is characterized by sleeping difficulties.  

People with insomnia often wake up during the night and fail to fall asleep again, or wake up early in the morning with a tired sensation.

Most of the time, these two disorders come hand-in-hand.

Although, you should know that sleep apnea and insomnia can be combated easily, without being necessary to take pills. It’s enough to place around your bedroom the following plants for a good night sleep and an energized mood in the morning.

The snake plant or Sanseveria

It’s an easy-to-care plant, even for beginner plant lovers.  

It’s called “snake plant” because of its leaves (long and sharp at the peaks – which look like swords) that have horizontal lines along their entire length.

They love the light, but they grow without problems in semi-dark places. They don’t need plenty of water and are resistant plants.

They release oxygen at night and during the day, making it the best plant for your bedroom.


Lavender is a relaxing plant in looks and smell. Eliminates stress, anxiety, and balances the heartbeat. It makes it the perfect plant for your bedroom, especially when you have serious insomnia problems.

English Ivy

It’s one of the easiest plants you can grow in pots, and has the role of purifying the indoor air, especially the bedroom air. This way you will have enough oxygen for a relaxing sleep during the night.

The best part of growing English Ivy is that it collects the toxins from the air and releases oxygen. It can also reduce mold by up to 94%.

Aloe Vera

It’s a plant that you definitely have to grow in pots, even if you don’t have sleeping disorders. It has many healing and curative properties. I also call it the natural witch-doctor.

Apart the fact that it can be used to treat various diseases and illnesses, aloe vera improves the quality of air in the home, by releasing oxygen and relieving the symptoms of sleep apnea and insomnia.
