Have you ever lied awake in the wee hours
of the night, tossing and turning, trying to fall asleep? I’ve been there… I’d stare
at the clock and watch hour after hour pass by with increasing frustration. Well here
I have a sleep-inducing, stress relieving lavender date tea with some steamed milk and
an extra boost of Valerian root. it’s not only a soothing drink but it’ll activate
those hormones to help you sleep. First I am starting with some dried lavender
that I got at the store! Dried Lavender can be hard to find. I found this one at target.
Lavender is known for its calming and relaxing properties and has been used to alleviate
insomnia, anxiety, depression, and restlessness. I also love it’s scent. Mmm smells so fresh!
Next I have a medjool date. You know how they say that eating turkey makes you sleepy? It’s
because it contains tryptophan, an amino acid that makes you sleepy. Well, Medjool Dates
also have an abundant amount tryptophan. I’m just going to remove the pit for the tea.
I’ll put 1 tbsp of lavender and the medjool date into my tea infuser and place it in my
mug. Next I’ll add enough hot water just to cover the tea infuser. I’ll let it steep
for 10 minutes to fully extract the relaxing benefits and flavor. If you want an additional
boost and sleeping aid, I have some Valerian root and I’ll add about 20 drops into the
tea. Long ago, Valerian was used as a natural treatment for insomnia without negative effects.
Finally I’ll fill the mug up with steamed milk that I heated up and frothed, then swirl
some honey on top to sweeten up the tea, and give it another sprinkle of lavender. Having steamed milk before I go to bed is
always so comforting, so this Lavender Date tea sleep remedy really does the trick. This
really helps me unwind and relax before bed. I love drinking tea with health benefits.
