Anyways I find lavender helps me sleep just smells nice. Not sure theres any science to it just smells nice. 

Cheers Rasp, I've also just received an electric oil diffuser, so will try lavender in it. I have some eucalyptus which I find really opens my airways up during the night and knocks me out...

Essential oils are a great tool for relaxation.

Went out yesterday and picked up some lavender and some sandalwood.
 
Tried some of the sandalwood with some eucalyptus.  Breathing was awesome, although it made me snore

would have thought it would do the opposite , im a high level snorer and find that eucalyptus/vicks helps my snoring , especially when im a bit bunged up 
 
Snorerx has improved my snoring massively would defo recommend one of these

Plants don't produce oxygen at night as there is no light to carry out photosynthesis (a product of which is oxygen). They will be producing carbon dioxide though via respiration.

Except aloe vera (amongst a few other succulents).  It absorbs CD during the day and produces oxygen overnight.
 
I've since bought another two and placed them around the room...


Tbh reading around it seems a bit unclear. The best evidence I have read to support O2 release during night suggests they may release stored O2 at night.

My sentiments exactly.  There's loads of posts and web articles regarding it, but not many actual studies.
Wikipedia has a list of plants compiled by NASA for use in detoxifying and improving air quality (an aloe vera is on the list), but little else...

Another +1 for lavender oil
A few drops of lavender oil on you pillow at night really works.
Yeah, it smells like you nan's underwear drawer (don't judge, you know exactly what I mean!) but it works.
 
Not sure about intact plants in the house though.
