You already use it to soothe sunburns and give you life (read: hyper-hydration) when you're hungover. But the miraculous aloe plant has another use: sleep aid. 

Referred to as “the plant of immortality” by the Egyptians, this beloved green was traditionally hung over doorways to ward off evil spirits. From a holistic standpoint, it’s thought to bring positive energy to the home. And from a scientific one, it both purifies the air of common carcinogens and emits loads of oxygen at nighttime—which translates to helping us sleep better, and in turn, be less cranky in the morning.

Get the memo? Your bedroom needs an aloe plant tout de suite.
