Get 10 Tips to Lower Blood Pressure.

If you struggle with insomnia or just have occasional trouble drifting off, consider trying one of the following herbal sleep aids.Mother Earth News senior editor K.C. Compton answers a reader question: “I sometimes have trouble sleeping. What herbs would you recommend?”

4 Herbal Sleep Aids:

  1. Chamomile – A cup of chamomile tea before bed will help you unwind and fall asleep faster.
  2. Hops – Hops work well on their own, but paired with chamomile and lavender, they make a particularly slumber-inducing herbal sachet to tuck into your pillow.
  3. Valerian – This plant is a well-researched sedative. Use 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried valerian root to make a tea.
  4. California poppy – The California poppy has mild sedative and anti-anxiety effects, making it a good slumber-inducer. Steep 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried aerial parts of the plant in boiling water to make a relaxing tea.
You can also find potent tinctures made from these herbs, and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for consumption. Some natural sedatives may work better for you than others, so be patient if you don’t feel the effects of the first one you try.
