We all know the 70's trend of indoor plants is at its peak right now and coming along with the trend are the added benefits of them such as fresh air, relaxation and a killer colour scheme but did you know there are also more benefits from putting the right plant in the right room ?

1. Aloe Vera.
Aloe Vera emits oxygen in the evening leaving your nighttime air fresher and cleaner, can help you combat insomnia, and just get a better night sleep.
