i adore all these plant & have copious amounts of them outside, i will consider bringing some inside probably the Aloe for my bedroom as it doesn't need much watering but i have no problems sleeping.
i have found fresh air to be highly beneficial to good sleep, i leave my window partially open, even in Winter.

Lavender – Always reliable and heavily studied, this well-dispersed plant can lower your blood pressure and heart rate, both of which are key markers of stress and anxiety. The plant has even been shown to reduce crying and stress in infants.

Jasmine – With its beautiful white blossoms it would seem a no-brainer to add Jasmine to your household, especially when it is proven to increase restful sleep, decrease anxiety, and even lead to a heightened mental performance.

Aloe Vera – One of NASA’s special favorite specimens, Aloe actually improves air quality by absorbing debris, microbes, and other harmful, sleep-disturbing air particles.

English Ivy – This modest plant requires very little maintenance in exchange for a big payoff: in addition to being shown to reduce symptoms of allergies and asthma, it has also been shown to reduce the amount of airborne mold by 78% in just 12 hours.

Peace Lilly – Another super star air purifier, Peace Lilies also act as mild humidifiers which can help to keep your sinuses moist and clear through the winter.

Thanx Glenn

why put the plants in (near?) the window?
"There are a number of proven ways in which plants can help us to get a good night’s sleep, such as the minor relaxation our brains experience simply by observing the color green." Am I unusual - when I'm trying to sleep I usually have my eyes closed! Can't see the colour.

TY, Glenn. Also helpful is the spider plant, and Portulacaria afra, called a spekboom in South Africa. Google it and see why it is dubbed a miracle plant.
