Our list of the best tea to fall asleep with.
Are you searching for the best way to increase sleep time?
The world has been a bit “topsy-turvy” in the past 14 months with the Coronavirus. Many stressors are peeking out and we all seem to be affected to some degree. Family, work, children, parents, it goes on and on and we need to gain some control over our sleeping patterns. Many of us find it has deregulated us and we are racing to find desperate options.
#1. Your best choice is herbal tea
Herbal tea has been used for decades by naturopaths, homeopaths, and acupuncturists. It is considered to have not been easy with the horrifying statistics that we hear every day, that definitely deregulates our sleeping patterns. I figured out that the best way to get my sleep under control was to experiment with some of the herbal teas.
Herbal tea is highly respected and has been used for household remedies in heart conditions, insomnia, relaxation, psychological illnesses, and aids with weight loss.
#2 Tulsi, the Queen of herbs
Tulsi is one of the most common wild, growing plants in Southeast Asia. Also known as “Holy Basil”,
This green leafy plant, also known as Ocimum sanctum L. it has a long history with Indian medicine and is native to Southeast Asia. This ancient medicine is helpful in treating many conditions, from eye diseases to ringworms. It is considered to be a powerful tonic for the body, mind, and spirit. Here is a list of what tulsi has been used for and receives amazing results:
- Use its fresh flowers for bronchitis.
- Use the leaves and seeds, with black pepper, for malaria.
- Use the whole plant for diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.
- Use the pill and ointment form for eczema.
- Use an alcohol extract for stomach ulcers and eye diseases.

#3 Alchemy, the healing potion for the body and soul
The art of alchemy was discovered in the early 18th century where scientists used pharmacology, chemistry, and medicine to manage serious sufferings. Sleep deprivation was assessed and common herbs such as chamomile, lavender, and tulsi were prescribed to overcome lack of sleep. Today, you should try to use one or all of the listed herbs to conquer any sleep issues, it is much better going the natural way than rely on prescriptions. It is best to stay away from any caffeine throughout the day. Even the slightest amount can interfere and put you in a “lack of sleep cycle”.
#4. Be kind to yourself
Sometimes our mind is racing like a gerbil on a wheel, and we just can’t stop it. When that happens, (which it will), be kind to yourself. Rise up from your bed and make yourself a cuppa chamomile or lavender tea. If you have lavender aromatherapy oil rub it on your forehead. Sip on a cup and relax your mind. It won’t be long before your start to nod off and find yourself in sleepy land. You will wake up and feel rested. That is the magic of herbal tea.
#5. Sleep is the elixir of life
No matter what is happening in your life, sleep truly is the elixir of life. You can focus, and manage issues way better once you have had the proper sleep time necessary. We make sacrifices not realizing how important it is to have 7 – 8 hours of sleep daily.
Always remember you can end your day with a cup of tea, which will give you gratitude, and the intern will provide you with peace, tranquility, and a good night’s sleep.
