I Made A Drink To Help My Wife Sleep And Now Other People Are Drinking It So I Thought I Would Share The Recipe… But Can We Improve On It


My wife has trouble sleeping and needed a replacement for Melatonin  supplements. So I started experimenting with tea combinations until I made the following.

The drink is made of 8 teas and one concentrated flower extract (see below).

  • Valerian Root Tea
  • Organic Chamomile Tea
  • Magnolia (Hou Po) Bark Tea
  • Passion Flower Tea
  • Lemon Balm Tea
  • Organic Lavender Tea
  • Nighty Night Tea
  • Soothing Caramel Bedtime Tea
  • Passion Flower Concentrated Extract

I bring 1 gallon of water to a slow short boil. I take 3 of each tea and dip them in the water 25 times (each group). I then cut the strings on the bags and leave them in the water steeping for 4 hours .

I pour the water and the tea bags into a one gallon sealed pitcher and place it in the refrigerator for just over 24 hours.

I pour a full tall glass of tea and add the Passion Flower extract (one full dropper).

The feedback I received from one person was that it, “knocked him out”. Another person stated it was like, “a sedative”.

The dreams you have after drinking this tea is something special.

Do you know any way to make it even stronger than it is now?

  2. Valerian tea has such a strong taste it is hard to endure. I will try mixing it with your suggestions.

  3. Maybe improve its efficacy with a separate liver cleanse with dandelion.

  4. What an interesting recipe, thanks for posting. I wonder what happens on a cellular level that makes this tea effective.

  5. The easiest way to make it stronger is to let it steep longer. The longer the tea bags are in the stronger to tea.

  6. Since I have trouble sleeping I am always looking for new things to try, this is one I might try. Seems it would be costly to make but sounds like it is worth it.

  7. I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts on an energy drink. The opposite of a soporific. Energy is really my focus these days as I’m working on my blog in a lot of my
    time (click on my name to visit) and thoughts of politics, war, corporations have been keeping me up …

  8. As suggested in Part 2, Kloss family herbal book.

    It’s actually better to ‘reduce’ the ingredients you are taking.
    It’s also much cheaper to buy ( and you can easily grow many )
    herbs and make your own ’teas’.

    You can eat the left over tea ingredients or better yet you can
    use them in compost or just spread anywhere and enrich the soil.

    Regular tea bags are excellent for cleaning dishes ( forget soap, it’s only use is breaking down grease and ‘aroma’ ). Simply save the tea bags and wipe dishes clean and then use the water in the garden ( try to not let
    water ‘go down the drain’ for a week – fill up some containers and empty around your ‘pet tomato plants’ or whatever – you’ll be feeding larvae …
    the bags will break as they weaken and and throw away the ‘bag’ and string

    btw walk a mile a day, read Michael Pollan’s experiment with coffee or listen to his interviews ( everything by him is excellent- history of the apple and potato etc ), iow find out more about diet and exercise and ‘thinking’ ….

    connections update:
    1. I tried new ‘circular crackers’ and ‘something’ ate them –
    don’t know if it was a possum,squirrel,cat or bird …
    ( Is it just the shape ? how would they know ! I broke them all first ! )

    Pregnancy. Anecdotal evidence suggests that bright-yellow urine may be an early symptom of pregnancy. However, there are no studies to support these claims.

    I’m Having to be my own doctor
    I notice my pee and it’s color
    and i see today it’s yellow and say
    is this a sign that I’m pregnant ?

    But Vit B will cause golden pee
    in Mike’s and Michella’s

    ( And it is unclear “weather” that might suggest
    that pregnancy will happen before the snowman melts )

    The Lions in the Zoo have Corvid
    And nobody knows how they got it
    And the Hippos shout “Beware! Possums are here !”

    But Humans don’t have to worry ….

    • You Stated — “use them in compost or just spread anywhere and enrich the soil.”

      My Response — That’s a fantastic idea and we will, thanks!

      You Stated — “The Lions in the Zoo have Corvid”

      My Response — This is because one of the attendants lied and was not careful.

      I witnessed this myself several times at work when people stated they were following all the rules but they were not.
