French Lavender in the Bedroom
The scent of lavender has long been known to promote calm and serenity, so why not keep a pot of lavender in the bedroom to ease you into relaxation at the end of the day? Of all the varieties, French lavender is best suited for the indoors. Just put it in a sunny window, and water it regularly, allowing the top inch or two of the soil to dry out in between. Sweet dreams!
Peace Lily in the Living Room
The peace lily has long been popular for its showy looks and easy maintenance. It adapts well to low-light situations but will flower almost nonstop if given more light. Its glossy green leaves and upright habit make it ideal for placement in the living room, sitting on a console table, for instance, or next to a chair or by a window.
