Poor air in the bedroom? Insomnia? Even the super mattress that you recently bought doesn't help here? If the air quality in your bedroom is bad, then even the best bed won't help you get a good night's sleep again.

The suppression of germs in the air, which can trigger allergic reactions, for example, is a positive effect here. The single leaf prefers a nice, shady spot in your bedroom. Then it can develop its wonderful effect best!
