Herbs for Restful Sleep
- Valerian is a gentle sedative with additional anti-anxiety properties. When taken in low doses it helps relax the nervous system. In higher doses it aids insomnia by inducing a sound night’s sleep. Research suggests that Valerian is most effective when taken consistently over at least a fortnight (rather than on a sporadic basis)
- Valerian is sometimes taken with other sedative herbs, such as Hops, Passionflower and Lemon balm. The inclusion of Oats means that this formula acts as a relaxing and re-building tonic for the nervous system while also supporting restorative sleep

This calming combination is ideal for people who are highly strung, and who are prone to becoming worked up or overwrought
- St John’s wort is highly regarded as a natural antidepressant, and also helps relieve anxiety and stress, and restore emotional balance. It has been clinically proven to be just as safe and effective for the treatment of mild to moderate depression as some pharmaceutical drugs
- Oats is traditionally regarded as a nervous system tonic that helps calm anxiety and re-build resistance to stress
- Damiana is traditionally used to relieve stress, anxiety and mild depression, and also provides a mild energy boost
