Sleeping well, more than a pleasure, is a human need. However, there are many people who fail to sleep quickly. Fortunately, there are herbal teas that help you get a well-deserved rest. To do this, all you need is a teapot and the following teas:
1. Passion flower tea
It is a plant which blooms in the spring, and acts as a powerful anti-stress which will help you dispel thoughts and worries. You can prepare it by boiling a liter of water with 5 or 6 of its leaves. Drink it a few minutes before bedtime.
2. Tila tea
This infusion, made with the flowers of certain species of linden, has properties spasmodic and relaxings, and is effective for nervous people by also reducing stress. Boil a liter of water with 2 tablespoons and drink it.
As well as being effective in treating digestive issues, a study published in the Official Journal of the International Society for Complementary Medicine Research found that it is also a mild tranquilizer and sleep inducer.
According to a study by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), ginseng has effects relaxants and invigorants. Put a few slices in half a liter of water and bring to a boil. Otherwise, take tea bags, which will also do the trick.
According to an article published in the journal Sleep Medicine, valerian is a natural sleep inducer. Indeed, she inhibits neurons responsible for maintaining people's wakefulness. Prepare it by putting about 15 grams of leaves in boiling water. Take it every night before going to bed.
If you can't sleep because of nervousness, lemon balm is for you, because it contributes to the balance of the central nervous system. Also, the UNAM Foundation has found it to have antidepressant powers. You can prepare it by serving a pinch of the leaves of the plant in a cup of hot water.
Another option for falling asleep in your bed is to have lavender tea. A study published in Clinical Psychopharmacology International, revealed that the preparation of lavender oil also has a beneficial influence on the quality and duration of sleep.
Although it is a plant widely used in gastronomy as an aromatic herb, it also has qualities of muscle relaxation and sleep reconciliation. This is due to the presence of certain oils, flavonoids, minerals and phenols.
This plant is recommended for stress and anxiety, thanks to its sedative effect, which also influences bedtime. Put a few mint leaves in a cup with boiling water, wait about 10 minutes and drink before bedtime.
They do not replace the doctor
Although these teas have positive effects on the body, it is important to consult a specialist if you have persistent problems with insomnia or other sleep disorders.
