Add Moisture to a room?

Our bedroom is SUPER dry. Its on the 3rd floor and has very high ceilings...we already have a big humidifier that we run almost 24/7 and its not hardly helping at all.
Its so dry that my eyes and nasal passages are dry and crusty every morning and my lips get so dry they split :(
I need ideas please! Are there plants that I can put in the room that would add moisture? HELP!!!!!!

  • Put the humidifier right next to your bed. And drink more that will help to moisturize those areas. Try putting on chap stick before bed as well and maybe some vaseline on the nose to help hold the moisture in.

  • It is literally right next to my side of the bed and its still not helping...I dont know what the deal is :(
    I do need to drink more water though, maybe that will help and im definately going to have to lube up my lips before bed, the cracking hurts SO badly.

  • I don't have any suggestions but I have heard that warm mist humidifiers aren't good for you because they breed bacteria and the put it into the air.
