Bay Leaf Tea works wonders, is non-addictive, and usually helps you get back on a regular sleep pattern within 5-7 days.
Bay leaves can be purchased at the supermarket and are inexpensive. The biggest problem is finding out what the proper dosage is for you, but it’s really simple to figure out.
My recommendation is to begin with 1/2-bay leaf to 1/2 cup of boiled water and adjust the size of the bay leaf depending upon:
1 – how quickly you fall asleep
2 – how well you sleep through the night
3 – how easily you awaken in the morning
Add bay leaf to 1/2 cup of boiled water, cover and steep for 10-15 minutes. Drink and relax. You should be able to fall asleep peacefully within 20-30 minutes.
It is best NOT to add sweeteners, especially sugar or artificial chemicals. If you must, add honey. The taste of the bay leaf tea is somewhat sweet, light and pleasant.
