Home Remedies – Chamomile and Linden Tea to help you sleep

30 Apr

There used to be a time when I had difficulty falling asleep. Me, the person that all she needs to fall asleep is  to be sleepy. I was so stressed out, so unhappy about my work and living situation that at night I was not able to close my eyes at all. And that brought other issues… I would fall asleep so late at night, that in the mornings I would not want to wake up at the time I needed. It was a very tough time for me…

But I learned about using herbal remedies to help my situation. I started making a ritual every night to “program my brain” to get into sleepy mode. And part of that ritual was to drink a hot mug of chamomile and linden teas with honey before going to bed.

Chamomile and linden, both, have calming properties. They help you ease the tensions and promote deep, healthy sleeping.

Who told me about this?? Not sure… but I am sure it works. I once gave my friend Ana a mug of chamomile/linden tea before a big meeting we had. She was super stressed and needed to calm down to be able to deliver the presentationbetter. After drinking it, she told me she felt so relaxed, she couldn’t even get up from her chair during the meeting.

Have you tried drinking chamomile or linden teas before?? What has been your experience?? Any other natural remedies to help your sleep?? Please share it with us all…

    I drink chamomile at night to help me relax and hopefully sleep better. I don’t sweeten mine, though.

      My natural doctor says they’re more effective without sweetening too. So you’re doing it right, girl!!!

    I am a huge fan of herbal teas! When Joe was dealing with a lot of stress, I brought home some tila (linden) because my grandmother would have some in the house to use as a calming tea. He didn’t believe me at first, but now he will drink some after work whenever he had a tough day and he relaxes immediately. I am also a fan of the Siete Azahares tea to help sleep. In addition to linden and chamomile, it has valerian, which acts as a sedative. I am nodding out a half hour after drinking that one. Plus the act of stopping to slowly drink a soothing warm beverage helps reset your state of being and allows you to relax a little bit.
