So, if you are looking to purify your home, succulents are your best bet.

Sleep enhancers

Sleep issues? Science has something for you! We all know that plants release oxygen during the day and carbon dioxide during the night. But, succulents continue to emit oxygen till late at night. This oxygen-enriched air allows you to sleep better.

Healing angels
