Plants for a Prettier, Healthier Bedroom: Valerian

Valerian (Scientific name: Valeriana officinalis)

With its small pink and white flowers, a Valerian plant is sure to look beautiful in your bedroom.  Known as the best plant for inducing sleep, Valerian has been used for centuries to help with problems of insomnia.  Inhaling the scent of its roots has been shown to not only induce but also improve the quality of sleep.  According to one study, inhaling its sweet scent may help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

These plants should get about six hours of sun a day, so you’ll want to find it a spot on a sunny window sill
