If sleep is a distant dream, this brew needs to be a permanent splash in your cupboard. Valerian root is a natural sleep aid to soften insomnia and anxiety, and when taken in a tea as opposed to pill form, is effective almost immediately. Lemon balm and lavender shhhhhh! the mental clanging of a noisy mind. A cup or two within two hours of lights out will become the best part of your nightly ritual.
