How To Overcome Insomnia and Get a Good Nights Sleep

I’ve had a few busy AND productive days that have gotten my brain going so that I can’t turn it off when I want to go to sleep. Has that ever happened to you? Your mind is racing and you either can’t sleep in the first place, or you wake up from on the ‘processing’ that’s been going on. That’s not going to have you waking up all bright-eyed and ready to have a happy day, is it?

I’ve found a few remedies that consistently work really well, and I’d like to share them with you. Life’s too short to spend it tired and cranky.

If you’ve stayed up late working or creating witty posts on Facebook, take a few minutes to wind down with a cup of herbal tea. Chamomile, oatstraw, fresh lemonbalm, licorice or event mint is lovely – fragrant too.

The herb Motherwort is an excellent remedy – buy tincture in a dropper bottle at the natural food stsore. Measure out 20 to 25 drops into a glass, add 1/2 cup water and sip slowly for the next couple of minutes. Don’t bother opening a book or flipping on the TV, you won’t have time to do either before you’ll probably be quite sleepy and ready for some zzzzzzz.

I like using the herb remedy because then I can reinforce it with a drop or two of either lavender or chamomile essential oils at both ends of my pillow. A fragrant recipe to zonk out fast. I love essential oils – the scent of top quality oils is so soothing and relaxing, so that’s an added benefit for me.

In the past I’ve used the homeopathic remedy Coffea, which has worked just as quickly for me, but because lavender or another strong-smelling essential oil, or mint toothpaste could negate the beneficial effects of the Coffea, it’s a little more delicate to use.

To use Coffea, place two pellets under your tongue and let the dissolve. You don’t need to wait for that to happen – just go back to bed and you’ll be in dreamland very quickly.
