Having problems with falling asleep? Passionflower is traditionally given to aid those with insomnia as well as those that suffer from nervousness or anxiety. Thus, if you think your insomnia might have an emotional basis, passionflower tea is the ideal medicine for you. You can also combine it with another important relaxing herb, valerian.
Herbal Infused Tea for Insomnia:
*Infuse 2-3 tsp. of dried passionflower leaves (or 2-3 tbsp. fresh) in boiling water. Let it simmer for 20-ish minutes. Strain and drink 1 cup an hour before bedtime.
*For anxiety, take the same dose twice more during the day. It may take several weeks to achieve the optimal effect.
