Sleep tight….

Sleep tight….

Chamomile or going by the Latin name, Matricaria recutita, is a very underrated remedy for sleep but it can work really, really well. The trick is to make it strong, short and sweet.

What do I mean by that?

Make it strong – 2 or 3 teabags per cup.
Make it short – Chamomile is a natural diuretic so make it a half cup size to save you getting up in the night!
Make it sweet – add at 1 to 2 heaped teaspoons of honey. Honey before bed also helps to keep the stress hormones down which can leaving you lying awake with a perfectly alert mind – just when you don’t want it!

If you are finding sleep difficult, repeat this process twice in the evening.

This is a beautiful picture of daisies but they are in the same family as chamomile – Composite family – and look quite similar.

www.botanicahealth.co.uk stocks a loose organic chamomile that smells absolutely incredible.

Since childhood herbs and natural medicine have been a significant and poignant part of my life. As the daughter of Scotland's longest practicing medical herbalist I am the UK's only second generation medical herbalist I have a life time of first hand experience observing the power of herbs for a wide variety of health conditions. With over 15 years experience working with a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Botanical medicine I aim to support, stimulate and enable a journey of healing and recovery. Combining evidence-based science with traditional botanical medicine with good nutrition as the bedrock, applying stress management strategies and medical laboratory testing as appropriate, are all used to achieve restored health.
