I have talked to quite a few people lately that suffer with sleep issues. It is important to your health to get a good night’s sleep, and having a natural sleep aid to use that does not have negative side effects is a plus. We have a lot of great herbal formulas and essential oil choices to help you get the sleep you need. The first five remedies are made for sleep, the ones that follow after that are remedies that you may have on-hand that work as well.
Dr. Christopher’s Slumber formula contains Black Cohosh Root, Blue Cohosh Root, Hops Flower, Lavender, Lobelia Herb, Mullein Leaf, Passion Flower & Valerian Root. This blend of herbs is calming to the system and promotes a restful night’s sleep. Available in capsules.
Dr. Christopher’s Sleep Well Spray contains fresh Valerian root, Chamomile flower, Catnip & Passion Flower. The sublingual spray is very easy to use, just spray three squirts into the mouth at bedtime or when sleep is a problem.
Western Botanicals Sweet Dreams formula is a natural, non narcotic, non-alcohol based herbal product which helps to relax the body, mind and spirit allowing you to gently drift into sleep. Used effectively by children and adults. Not habit forming and completely non toxic to the system. Available in capsules or syrup 2 oz and 4 oz.
Western Botanicals Rest Easy Tea is a soothing blend of Chamomile flower, Scullcap herb, Catnip herb, Peppermint leaf, Stevia leaf, Spearmint leaf, Passion Flower herb, Lemon Balm leaf, Lemon Grass herb and Lavender flower. Available in 4 oz, 8 oz & 16 oz re-closeable mylar bag.
Garden Essence Oils Nite Cap blend contains Lavender, Chamomile, and Valerian essential oils. The oils in the blend help to relieve nighttime restlessness and is a great sleep aid. These are full strength oils. Mix a few drops into lotion or a carrier oil and massage into neck, abdomen, down the spine, legs and feet in the evening before bed. Make a roller bottle using your favorite carrier oil and add 2 to 10 drops into the 10 ml bottle or 4 to 30 drops into the 1 oz. roller bottle.
Both my husband and I take Kava Kava every night. I’m pretty active and on the nights that I don’t take it I know that I didn’t when morning comes because I have achy muscles. Kava Kava is a great muscle relaxant, is calming for anxiety, stress and restlessness. It is available in capsules, 2 oz and 4 oz. extract and bulk cut and powder.
I have also used Dr. Christopher’s famous anxiety/nerve/depression combo for many years. It is both Relax-Eze and Mindtrac taken together. Sometimes I take them individually, but together they are amazing and work wonders for sleep! If I wake up in the night with worries I’ll pop two capsules of Mindtrac and it quiets down my brain and I drift quickly into a deep sleep. These two go to the root of the sleep problem for me, which is the fact that I am a more anxious worry type person. Great for anxiety, depression and sleep!
Other herbal formulas that may promote sleep are Dr. Christopher’s Valerian Nerve extract and Western Botanicals Nerve Calm, available in capsules, extract and syrup.
Other essential oils that promote calming and sleep are Lavender, Cedarwood, Celery, Chamomile, Clary Sage, Marjoram, Valerian and Vetiver to name a few. If you have some of these oils add a few drops into the roller bottle with the carrier oil or add to some lotion and you are good to go!
