Drowsiness
Excess carbon dioxide can elevate drowsiness levels. During photosynthesis, plants remove carbon dioxide from the air.

  • Insomnia
Since plants give off oxygen, they can help improve your night’s sleep. Some plants, like gerbera daisies, release oxygen at night, so place them by your bed for optimal oxygen while you slumber.
