Use freshly boiled hot water. For maximum benefit leave teabag in cup, gently squeeze to release any remaining extract. Add honey or sweetener if needed. Enjoy this tea before bedtime. Drink it warm as warm as possible, bundle up, relax and sleep well.
At times we overlook the importance of winding down before bedtime to relax and be ready for sleep. We may watch TV or movies, play virtual games, be on the computer or go out loud, bright events. As the Sun fades, our body clock automatically takes over and signals to our system that it is time to sleep. When this body rhythm is disturbed, out of balance, or over-stimulated, sleep becomes difficult. The body needs to relax and rejuvenate. Many cultures have developed herbal remedies precisely to relax and sleep.
