TL: DR A quick post glance:

  1. Lime-flower (Linden flower)
  2. Valerian root (herb)
  3. Peppermint (herb)

Sound juicy? Okay, Ladies. Let’s start!

1. Lime-flower herb can help you get your zzz’s

For starters, lime-flower (AKA Linden flower) is a deciduous tree. Yes, a flowering tree to help you sleep exists. Sound extra? Read on. Europeans have used Linden flowers as an herbal remedy for centuries. 

So how does it work for sleep? Tea or essential oil made from lime-flowers are potent enough to cause sleep.

Tea made from the fresh or dried lime-flowers are antispasmodic, diaphoretic, expectorant, hypotensive, laxative and sedative. You read that right; lime-flower tea is a sedative. Sedatives are sleep-aids (Lime Flower facts and health benefits, 2020).

Lime-flower essential oil helps you to calm down from a stressful day. Stress can prevent sleep. That said, lime-flower essential oil is useful for relaxation, thinning the blood, reducing fever, decrease night sweats and get rid of phlegm.(Lime Flower facts and health benefits, 2020).

To make Linden Tea (AKA Lime-flower tea):

The flowers can be used fresh, dried and in powered form for making linden tea. Pour 250ml boiling water over 2 teaspoons of fresh flowers (use 4 teaspoons if using dried). Leave for 10 minutes then indulge (Lime Flower facts and health benefits, 2020).

2. Valerian root (herb) can lead to a restful night

Likewise, Valerian root is a natural herb and used in traditional medicine for treating insomnia.

Some researchers refute its usage for sleep. Yet, a 2005 review of published clinical studies describes support for Valerian as a treatment for insomnia. Valerian for Sleep: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis (Valerian (herb), 2020).

So how does it work for sleep? Tea or essential oil made from Valerian root are potent enough to cause sleep. But we actively encourage considerable research on side effects before use.

To make Valerian tea:

Start by adding 2 to 3 grams of dried Valerian root (1 to 2 teaspoons) to one cup of boiling water and allow to steep for 10 to 15 minutes. Then you can indulge (The Benefits and Uses of Valerian Root, 2020).

Valerian essential oil is applied for aromatherapy and is not meant for internal use. Valerian tinctures and extracts can vary in concentration; as a general rule, never exceed the recommended dosage on the product label (The Benefits and Uses of Valerian Root, 2020).

3. Peppermint can work for beauty sleep

Peppermint not only freshens your breath, it can help you get your precious beauty sleep.

Tense muscles and stress can rob you of restorative sleep. Peppermint is a muscle relaxant and may provide relaxation before bedtime. It may help reduce stress and anxiety and promote better and healthier sleep. As it has no caffeine, it is likely suitable for most people (20 Peppermint Tea Health Benefits: Tis the Season for Better Sleep! | Simple Loose Leaf Tea Company, 2020).

Studies show Peppermint is fantastic for de-stressing, reducing frustration, anxiety and fatigue. As a bonus, the International Journal of Neuroscience reports that it may even have a positive effect on self-confidence (20 Peppermint Tea Health Benefits: Tis the Season for Better Sleep! | Simple Loose Leaf Tea Company, 2020).

So how does it work for sleep? Tea or essential oil made from Peppermint are potent enough to cause sleep. But we actively encourage considerable research on side effects before use.

To make Peppermint tea:

Start by bringing water to a boil. Next steep one teaspoon of broken leaves or 1 spoon of unbroken leaves for 5-10 minutes. Then indulge on yummy Peppermint tea.
