Herbal Sleep Cure
in ten of us have trouble sleeping. I want to help insomniacs who really crave
for a good night sleep. Many people are only sleeping either two to three hours
at night or some people have adhoc sleep where they do not have set sleeping
time and are rarely in true deep sleep.
A Natural Sleep Aid
I want to discuss with you how to make a natural sleep aid using something you
wouldn't normally think of as a fruit, hops. Although it does not look like a
traditional apple or banana type of fruit, it's called a fruit botanically
because it contains the seed of the plant. The first thing you notice when you
lift the petal like structures is a sticky yellow powder that you find inside
them and the other thing you notice is that the smell of a proper British ale, a
really bitter, intense but kind of sweet flavor at the same time. And it is
bitter acid within this that provides beer characteristic flavor but are also
largely responsible for the sedative properties that hops have.
There is a favorite story about hops is that how their sedative properties
were first discovered. It's basically that hop pickers were often found asleep
on the job and it was actually called hop pickers fatigue. It was once believed
to be really dangerous to people because it would send you into stupor.
Easy To Grow
Hops are incredibly easy to grow in your own backyard garden. And you could pick
one up from your local garden centre. I dry my hops by hanging them indoors for
a week but you can buy dried hops from online suppliers.
I will use giant hops to make sedative pillow. Herbal pillow might sound a
little bit what a grandmother would do and you might have trouble believing it
works but really inhaling substances is a fantastic way to administer drugs.
Hops contain bitter acids and volatile oils which have sedative effects.
Breathing these in can calm the nerves, relax you, and help you fall asleep.
An Easy Recipe
This recipe is so easy. Firstly snip off some of the fruiting coat. If you ever
got really close to the dried ones and started picking them you will notice
their affects really quite quickly. Put three to four handfuls of hops cones
into a breathable lining pouch which you can slip inside your pillow case or you
can keep beside your bed.
I think a lot of people might be put off with having a bed that smells of
real ale so I am going to add another ingredient that just sweetens up a scent a
little bit, and that is lavender. I do not think it will come as a surprise to
many people that lavender is traditionally been used sort of as a calmative, a
mild sedative. Add an equal amount of lavender to the bag and give it a good
shake. And a smell of these herbal ingredients can really send you off to
sleep. This herbal remedy is free of any synthetic chemicals hence there are no
side effects so it is worth a try.
