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. If you’re feeling sick be sure to check
out my cold remedy tea that’ll help you feel better! Thanks for watching, and have
a good night. I’ll see you guys soon. Bye!
