Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) is a highly effective adrenal tonic traditionally used in China for thousands of years, for alleviating stress and adrenal fatigue. Licorice helps prevent the breakdown of adrenal hormones including cortisol (the body’s main stress hormone), which makes these hormones more available to the body. Poor adrenal gland function can contribute to poor sleep patterns. Consuming licorice tea before bed can help improve sleep and assist with feeling more refreshed and alert when you wake. Licorice is also a wonderful anti-inflammatory, and immune-herb.
Aniseed (Pimpinella anisum) with its licorice-like taste has been used historically to treat sleeplessness and insomnia. Aniseed is also a great digestive herb, relieving wind and upset stomachs, due to its calmative effect.
Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare,) similar to aniseed, has a lovely licorice-like aroma and taste. It is used to improve digestive issues such as bloating, indigestion, colic and wind as it helps relax the smooth muscles in the intestines (anti-spasmodic).
Valerian (Valeriana Officinalis) is a valuable herb commonly used by herbalist in the treatment of anxiety and insomnia. Valerian has a sedative action that calms the central nervous system, allowing the body and mind to relax.
Passionflower (Passiflora incarnate) is commonly used to provide relief from anxiety and anxiety related problems such as insomnia. It has a calming effect on the body and mind due to it helping boost GABA levels in the brain, which is our brain chemical that helps us feel relaxed and aids sleep.
