A warm glass of milk helped Adam Sandler’s grandmother go to sleep in the movie Happy Gilmore, but does it work for everyone experiencing trouble sleeping? Of course not. Chamomile tea is one option. Try drinking a cup 30 to 45 minutes before bed and you just might find a solution to catching some z’s.
Chamomile is an herb that comes from the daisy family and has been used to create teas for centuries. Its active ingredient is an essential oil known as bisabolol. People experiencing insomnia, stomach problems, and anxiety will find that chamomile tea is incredible! Some tea brands include lavender with chamomile, because of its soothing effect that works very well together as a calming tea.

Please read warning and side effect labels and understand that too much of any natural herb is not recommended.
