hot herbal teas to help sleep

I recently tried some of that celestial stuff called sleepytime. Iwas at wits end, meds having reverse effects and keeping me up .A friend thats into natural stuff(has a herb garden with common herbs like chamomile,comfry and others) suggested it and it is at the grocery store.Seems to help with sleep.Im going back for another box today,hope they have more.

the other versions dont taste the same.Itried that when the store was sold out.didnt work.Anyone else try that to help them get sleep?


  • Never tried it but I may after my next surgery, not taking anything before the operation. They ask you to stop all herbals before as a precaution.

    for two or more years now.
    Its not a commercial blend.
    I go to a tea specialty shop and they have what is called " Moonlight Snooze"
    They dont give out their blends, but I know it contains at least:

    Jasmine Flowers, Linden, Passion Flower, Valerian Root

    Works great

  • i researched more and found the celestial sleepytime has rose petals in the mix,researched that and found people make rose petal teas to help with sleep.The local grocer has been sold out now again so went to a nearby town,they had it,bought 3 boxes and sipping it as I type.
    Dr gave mescripts for sleep aids but I quit taking those as dont like the effects.hallucinations and walking into walls to get to the bathroom..no thanks.
    the tea now works wonderfully,i may look for a source to make the rose pettle teas that is said to work great but half the issue is waking up to pain so have it half won...a start.
