We all want a good nights sleep and we all have streeful lives that keep our mind racing so those good night s of sleep are far and few between so I decided to do a litle reseqach on all of the “sleepy-time” teas and herbs and remedies used to help people sleep . With some tempering and adjusting we came up with a prettyty effective tea for allowing you to first of all GET to sleep then STAY asleep through the night. Other than taking a “sleeping pill” this tea is your best bet in a natural non adictive way to relax your body and calm your mind to you can get the rest you need and deserve.
Simply make 1 cup of tea 30 minutes before you go to bed….that’s it. If you read through the ingredients you can see why that’s all you need to do.

Tilia is a genus of about 30 species of trees or bushes, native throughout most of the Northern Hemisphere. The tree is known as linden for the European species, and basswood for North American species. In Britain and Ireland they are commonly called “lime trees”.
Chamomile has been used for centuries as an herbal remedy for easing stress and insomnia Valerian root tea is effective as a sleep aid due to the two naturally occurring sedatives within it called valepotriates and sesquiterpenes.
Passion flower traditionally has been used to alleviate anxiety and improve sleep. More recently, studies have examined the ability of passionflower tea to improve insomnia and sleep quality.
Lemon Balm is a citrus-scented, aromatic herb and has been used for reducing stress and improving sleep since the Middle Ages. Evidence shows that lemon balm increases GABA indicating that lemon balm may act as a sedative.
Note: Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a chemical that is made in the brain and also found in some foods and herbs. In the brain, GABA has anti-anxiety effects.
Lavender is known worldwide as an herbal “rescue-remedy” for reducing stress, anxiety and tension. Its strong, relaxation-inducing scent is used in massage therapy lotions, candles, bath salts, tinctures and essential oils. Lavender is often paired with Chamomile to enhance the effects of both.
Tila tea is readily used in folk medicine to promote sleep. Its plant compounds have strong sedative properties, which may encourage relaxation that leads to sleep
Milky Oats can ease the effects of stress, anxiety or exhaustion and resolve sleeplessness. Oats contain the amino acid tryptophan which are a natural body relaxant
Hops are known as a sedative plant. The main mechanism of action of hops is to increase the activity of the neurotransmitter γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) through modulation of brain GABA(A) receptors
Mugwort has a reputation to enhance dreams giving them a more vivid, colorful and realist experience.
