Medicinal Recipe: Insomnia Tea Ideas

Use any of the following for insomnia (or combine some), simply make a tea and sip slowly 30 minutes before bed:

*Valerian root (reduces tension and anxiety)
*Chamomile (reduces anxiety and promotes restful sleep)
*Catnip (reduces anxiety and promotes restful sleep)
*Passion flower (promotes calm and relaxation)

Infuse an herbal tea: boil water and pour over the selected herb(s). Let it steep for 20-25 minutes. Sweeten with honey or stevia to taste. One cup of water per 1-3 tbsp. of fresh herb(s) or 1-3 tsp. dried herb(s).

You can make a large batch of the tea and drink a cup of tea each night. The tea will stay good stored in the refrigerator for approx. 4 days.
