ChamomileUnlike other sleep aids, that only focus on one cause of sleeplessness, chamomile tea can provide relief to a variety of sleep disruptors, including:
1. Insomnia – First and foremost, chamomile fights that annoying sensation where you don’t feel tired. If you glance at the clock and see that it is well past your bedtime, and you don’t feel tired yet, sipping on chamomile tea can induce that sleepy feeling.
2. Anxiety – Anxiety and insomnia go hand in hand. Your racing, unwanted thoughts bring with it a night of restlessness. A cup of chamomile tea before bed will help calm your mind long enough that you can drift off to sleep.
3. Depression – Drinking chamomile tea before bed can help rid you of that worn-out unwanted companion that clings to you like a cloud of hopelessness. While it won’t outright cure depression, it can rid you of these unwanted feelings long enough to fall asleep.
4. Indigestion – The cause of sleeplessness that I most identify with. But perhaps that’s because I overeat too close to bed. A cup of chamomile tea can treat your upset stomach, reducing muscle spasms and inflammation, so that you can sleep pain free.
