A cup of this is not only great for bedtime, but it helps relax and restore a “fried” nervous system (which often comes from raising a tiny person), healing the body on a cellular level from deep stress. AKA will help you chill out.

The beauty of this tea is the ingredients are effective enough for an adult, yet gentle enough for a child. Taken around bed time it will not make you drowsy, but rather will help relax you enough to allow for deep restorative sleep. If you are breastfeeding this tea will provide safe levels of relaxation through your milk to your little one.
