Hmm. I'm a big fan of this tea: http://ca.traditionalmedicinals.com/nhp/product/96
And valerian can be helpful, too, but I am always a bit hesitant to recommend herbals as the dosages are far from standardized. Be sure to ask a proper pharmacist about them - they are quite knowledgeable about herbal products these days and can give good advice.
Hi, can anyone recommend anything (natural) for insomnia? books, cds, self help? it's for a birthday present. many thanks!
Get a good daily exercise. Our body need it regularly to function regularly. If you will do it as an habit it will helps you regularize your routine not only in your sleeping time but in every thing or day to day chores. Good luck.
i have a home remedies book that says to help insomnia you could have a slice of turkey chicken or bannana before bed they contain an amino acid that releases serotonin which helps you sleep
warm milk with a spoon of honey and a sprinkle of cinamon wich has natural sedative components
avoid spices and sugar
a herb called valerian can help sleep
passionflower tea is a herbal sedative
you can get supplements that contain both the above
lavendar jasmine and ylang ylang all togeather in the bath helps too
as its a gift you could make a hamper with cinamon and some posh honey and biccies t make the milk with an dprint some lovely instructions to go with it and a posh cup an dyou could put in a bottle of each of the oils :-)
sounds lovely i would defo appreciate something like that shows you have put thought into it :-)))
Clary sage oil, a few drops on a flannel or similar under your pillow. Has I forget the word but the effect of spacing you out, relaxing you and helping you therefore sleep.. hence why people use it in labour! I still use mine now tho it does give me nightmares I'm about to give birth again but I'm sure that's just for me lol
