Insomniac's Treatment Tincture
This is the perfect herbal insomnia treatment. It was originally created for a friend after we exhausted all other remedies, and his lack of sleep was effecting his safety at work. This tincture is a very potent remedy, made from the best sleep inducing herbs available. It is non-narcotic, but contains Valerian root which has been rumored to be habit-forming. I have not had that experience with Valerian, but I do know that all sleep aids by nature are “habit-forming” (who DOESN’T enjoy a good sleep!). Either way, be conscious of its effects and responsibly discontinue if you are uncomfortable with how you feel. Try the other sleep remedies I have available including the teas, lotions, and baths.
Directions: Dilute 2 droppersful (2ml) in a small amount of water, 3 hours before bedtime. If needed repeat 1 hour before bedtime. Start with a low dose to evaluate tolerance.
Organic, homegrown: Passionflower, Valerian Root, Wild Lettuce, Lavender, Mimosa. Organic grain cane alcohol (gf).
**Not for children, pregnancy, or breastfeeding due to strength of herbs and alcohol content.**
ADDITIONAL HELP: I’m sure you have heard/read all of this before…
Stay away from caffeine after noon (it has a half-life that will last well into the night, even if you don’t notice it)- this includes some herbal tea, iced tea, coffee, energy drinks, & chocolate. Also avoid sugars after 6pm. Take a walk after supper, this speeds digestion and relaxes the mind. Read a book instead of watching tv or using the computer. Use your bed ONLY for sleeping! Take a hot shower/bath with natural aromas (some that work best for relaxing are Lavender, Lemon Grass, and Chamomile-also avoid stimulating aromas). Avoid stress or excitement before bed. Turn off all sound and all lights. Meditate!!
