Herbal Tea is Always a Good Idea For Promoting a Better Night’s Sleep, Relaxation and Overall Wellbeing.
As a well-known relaxant, herbal tea is great for helping you to unwind after a long tiring and maybe stressful day. A better night’s sleep is achieved through a combination of factors including; switching to low-caffeine herbal teas from traditional black tea, staying hydrated and instigating a ritual of relaxation and a more thoughtful sleep preparation routine.

The Benefits of Herbal Teas
With mild sedative effects, compounds found in herbal teas will help with overall sleep. Popular herbs used include Chamomile, Valerian root, lavender, and lemon balm.
More and more people are ensuring they remain hydrated throughout the day. Again, switching to herbal teas can help with overall hydration before you go to bed.
Low Caffeine Content
Herbal teas contain very low levels of caffeine. Making a switch from your regular black tea to a herbal one at night will help you to unwind.
Found especially in green tea, this magic ingredient is known for its stress-reducing effects due to encouraging an increase in the production of neurotransmitters including serotonin and dopamine. These are of course key for relaxation and ultimately a good night’s sleep.
Ritual & Relaxation
Many studies have explored how to achieve a night of optimum sleep. Methods include having a total ‘black out’ in your bedroom, enjoying a relaxing aromatherapy bath before bed, keeping your room and sheets cool, switching off all electronic devices at least an hour before sleep and unwinding through the ritual of tea.
