Heard of the saying, “I'll sleep when I'm dead”? Whoever was responsible for popularizing that statement did the entire human species grave harm. This may seem self-evident, yet sleep is necessary for the body to function properly. Do you ever have those nights when you're lying in bed, wanting, hoping, and praying for sleep but it won't come? What is it that keeps you up at night? Along the road, we’ve come across some truly amazing herbal allies and are delighted to share these herbs for better sleep.
One of our friends related a story about her time at herb school to us. On a red eye, her professor drank four shots of espresso, and by the time he got to class, he was fatigued, buzzed on coffee, and nervous as hell. After downing a shot of skullcap, he was calm, cool, and collected within minutes. We can wind down and sleep better just before bedtime using Skullcap.
Our fascination with this herb began with sleeplessness, as the folklore surrounding our wonderful friend revolves around sleeping and dreaming. Reach for the mugwort bundle when falling asleep isn't an issue, but your nightmares are keeping you awake, or when you can't stay asleep all night.
Hops is a great, calming tea that will help you drift away without a care in the world. Hops are perhaps most commonly found in beer these days. They're there because they provide a relaxing effect.
Another old friend has returned. Lavender can be used in a variety of ways to aid sleep. Smelling lavender essential oil can transport your mind to a new place if you're worried or need to prepare to-do lists before going to bed.
You'll be ready for bed with a cup of tea and perhaps a foot bath. This one, when combined with chamomile, can put a child to sleep in just ten minutes. Taking a tincture of lavender with vervain or mugwort can help you relax and trust your body enough to fall asleep.
It's usually a good idea to go to this one because it's so soft. Chamomile will be your closest buddy if you've had a bad day or if you have a knot in your stomach. It's also fantastic for the kids — we all have grandmothers who used to make ‘sleepy-time tea’ for us when we couldn't sleep. It's soft and safe, but it's effective at enforcing bedtime.
