Sleeping With A Daisy

I love when something natural can be used in place of chemicals. So, here’s something to try if you’re having trouble sleeping at night.

Pot a Gerbera Daisy and put it on you nightstand next to your bed. NASA says the plant gives off oxygen overnight … which is said to improve your sleep. Love that. You’ll want to put it in front of a window because it needs bright light.

It’s worth a try.

An added benefit is that it’s also great at removing benzene, a known cancer-causing chemical.

If doing this helps you to rest better … I’d love to hear about it.

Thanks

My heart goes out to all moms who are at or beyond their due date. When the baby just isn't budging it can be so miserable. Walking isn't working, climbing stairs isn't making it happen. The bumpy car ride is just so annoying. So what's an expecting mom to do?
