You can consume apple infusion or add tea bags to your bathtub to enjoy a relaxing bath.

Today, anxiety, stress, and insomnia problems are very frequent due to lifestyle, responsibilities at home, at work, and other factors. Even though there is medicine to eliminate anxiety and improve sleep, it is also true that infusions of some herbs can naturally help you sleep and rest better. Here we will give you five good examples of relaxing infusions that will help you get to sleep easily and sleep more deeply.

Passion Flower Infusion

Passion flower (or maypop, wild apricot, or wild passion vine) tea is a great natural remedy to combat anxiety and help eliminate stress. It acts as a light sedative. In this way, the passion flower infusion will help you sleep better. It is a very common herb that can be found in many natural shops. Some people say that the taste of passion flower is not very pleasant, but this can be solved by adding a little bit of honey or concentrated fruit juice to the infusion.

Chamomile Tea

This is one of the most well-known natural remedies for insomnia problems. You can find it in almost any supermarket or natural store. It has a very nice taste. You can even use it in tea bags in your bathtub to have a delightful and relaxing chamomile bath.

Valerian Infusion

Valerian tea has gained popularity as a very effective remedy for insomnia. Several scientific studies show promising results, although the mechanism that valerian uses to help you sleep still isn’t clear. Today it is easy to find valerian in supermarkets, herb shops, or on the internet.

Valerian infusion has a better effect on insomnia if it is taken during a certain period of time. That’s why it is ideal for the treatment of chronic insomnia problems.

Linden Blossom Tea

This is another famous, natural remedy with a relaxing and calming effect. This product is on sale in almost all supermarkets and in all herb shops. Drinking linden blossom tea when going to sleep will relax you thanks to its vasodilating effect and as a result, you will fall asleep more quickly. If a cup isn’t enough, you can take up to four cups a day spread out over different times. But you shouldn’t exceed this dosis because excess linden blossom can have a toxic effect.

Kava Tea

The relaxing effects of Kava tea have been verified in many scientific studies. It is a safe, completely natural product, and doesn’t cause dependence. To make the infusion, it is important to get good quality and pure kava because the kind that you get in certain stores or supermarkets may not be concentrated enough to get the desired effect. When you get rid of anxiety, kava tea is a great accomplice when going to sleep.

Lastly, remember that if you have problems sleeping that continue after having tried different techniques or natural remedies such as these relaxing infusions, you should see your doctor.
