Skullcap 25gms
Lemon Balm  25gms
Chamomile 25gms
Passionflower   15gms
Lavender flower 10gms

The above amounts make 100gms of herb, enough for at least several weeks of daily use. The proportions are given so that a person can make more or less according to their needs or from what is available.


The dosage to have a pronounced effect is to pour one large cup of freshly boiled water over 2-3 hpd tsps, or about 2.5 - 3 grams of the herbs. Cover and allow to steep for a good 10-12 minutes, then strain and drink. Adding some honey may be welcome.

The taste of this tea is very acceptable and there has been excellent feedback over the years of using it from people who say how much it helps them to unwind, relax and sleep better. It can be safely taken by anyone from any age as often as they need or want it.

Please understand that I cannot personally advise you without seeing you in my clinic.
This living 'book' is my labour of love so, wherever you are, I wish you peace & good health!
