We all have restless nights and end up staring at the bedroom ceiling instead of getting sleep. However, I have discovered a wonderful natural aid to help you drift off with a peaceful state of mind with this wonderful homemade recipe.
What I found especially helpful is making a sleep potion potpourri sachet bag to keep near your pillow. This beneficial aroma has the power to soothe you when stressed, somehow, as you breathe it in.
This is a wonderful potpourri to make and save for those awful nights when sleep seems impossible.
Herbal Sleep Potion Potpourri
3 cups of spearmint
3 cups of rose leaves
1 cup of whole cloves
1 ounce of orris root (fixative)
Dry the mint (leaves and also stems) and the rose leaves on a screen in a warm place so the air can circulate properly. You can also resort to drying them on a sheet of newspaper in a warm spot.
When this is dry, mix with cloves and the orris root. Put in a glass jar and cover tightly with a lid for a few weeks, stirring occasionally.
You can just open when needed or make some sachet bags to keep handy.
This is a wonderful potpourri to make and save for those awful nights.
