Which herbal tea will sedate you to sleep instantly?

Which herbal tea will sedate you to sleep instantly? | Roshni Sanghvi

Time to Read: 2 minutes

The medicinal and healing power of Indian herbs is something of a miracle. In fact and entire sector of science called Ayurveda has been exclusively dedicated to study this. Tea's and coffee's often keep you up at night and interferes with digestion. Herbs on the other hand, can have the opposite effect and sedate you to sleep. 

So I have been having late nights (11pm) and early mornings (3.30am, legit) since the past few days. Inspite of the long hours, I am still working out for about 1 hour per day and been on my foot running around almost all day.

Today was particularly hectic and I want some good sleep (even if it is only for 3-4 hours). So just brewed myself a big pot of rose petals and cinnamon hot infusion. At all cost avoid caffeine or green tea’s at night to help you sleep. The caffeine will only keep you awake and make you restless.

Sleeping pills come with side effects such as dizziness, constipation and even dependency on them.

Cinnamon sticks on the other hand help you relax muscle fibres and regulate hormonal balance thus preparing your body to get into sleep mode. It also helps in easy digestion of food. A restless belly means a restless night. But having cinnamon infused tea late at night will keep an unhealthy gut at bay. A banana peal and cinnamon infused tea would also be a great option since the potassium and magnesium from the banana peal will help you relax your nervous system and muscle fibres. Especially if you have very sore muscle from training too hard, this combination is the perfect solution.

However, I chose rose petals over banana peals today. The smell of rose petals itself is enough to reduce stress and anxiety. This flower also cuts through the strong flavor of cinnamon and adds a sweet tone to your tea. Rose has been shown to also act as a mild sedative and helps with treating insomnia!

Give this one a try and let me know what you think (:
