Flowers & Plants That Help You Sleep

As a flower lover I almost always have at least one bouquet of flowers in my room and I’ve become curious about what types of flowers and plants might actually help me sleep. I’ve done a little research and come up with a list of species that provide calming and purifying benefits and improve your sleep pattern.
