Ease your stress and finally get a good night's sleep with the help of this guide to the top herbal remedies and natural methods.

A good night's sleep is the key to good overall health--both physical and mental--but as many as a third of adults say they don't get enough of it. The pandemic has led to increased anxiety and stress, making it even more difficult to sleep than it was before. Over-the-counter sleep aids can be habit forming, and many people prefer a more natural approach.

Herbal Remedies for Sleep introduces readers to the top 15 herbs for reducing stress and encouraging a good night's sleep, along with recipes for using them in homemade formulas. The book includes three classes of herbs: those that have a general calming and relaxing effect; adaptogens, a class of herbs that has grown in popularity for its ability to balance and calm the nervous system; and sedative herbs, for those nights when you just can't stop tossing and turning and need to go to sleep quickly. Remarkably, many of these herbs can easily be grown in an ordinary backyard, making it simple for people to grow a garden that helps promote a restful night's sleep.

Review: Herbal Remedies for Sleep: How to Use Healing Herbs and Natural Therapies to Ease Stress, Promote Relaxation, and Encourage Healthy Sleep Habits by Maria Noël Groves

I have a lot of herb books, but this new one, Herbal Remedies for Sleep: How to Use Healing Herbs and Natural Therapies to Ease Stress, Promote Relaxation, and Encourage Healthy Sleep Habits by Maria Noël Groves, RH (AHG) is my favorite so far. Even though the title says it focuses on sleep, it really does focus on the balance of daytime energy and nighttime energy. All of which is necessary for good, quality sleep.

I’m learning a lot as I make my way through the book. I found the chapters aptogens and sleep support very interesting. Women over 40 will especially find this book helpful as hormone changes can affect our sleep cycles and daytime energy. 

I appreciate the descriptions and information provided for each herbal choice. In the sleep support chapter, they are organized in a sliding scale from light sleepers support to heavy sedative. The information helps you make an informed decision of what would work for you and your body and what you might want to avoid. 

The book also includes chapters on preserving herbs and recipes for using them in beverages. What I like the most is the wide range of reader that this book appeals too. It’s great for those who are just beginning to learn about herbs and have a particular interest in sleep aids. It’s also great for those who are more advanced and want to learn how to make tinctures and/or harvest and store herbs.
