3. Jasmine. This fragrant plant relieves anxiety, calms the nervous system and improves sleep. Keep it next to your bed.


4. Aloe vera is a plant that purifies the air in the house. If the air is heavily polluted, brown spots will appear on the stems.

5. English ivy is a useful plant that can live in cold, dimly lit rooms. It can relieve symptoms of certain respiratory conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, or allergies. Ivy leaves contain a molecule called saponin, which makes breathing easier, thins mucus, and relaxes the muscles of the airways. Be careful, however, as this plant can be toxic to children and pets.

As a reminder, houseplants green up your space and bring benefits, but they can also be a source of inconvenience and problems. Some of them have the ability to attract pests, such as cockroaches.
