Sleep. We all need it, many of us get far to little of it and all of us are always in pursuit of the perfect night's sleep
. How many times have you laid down at night feeling like you would fall asleep as soon as your head hit your pillow only to have your eyes pop open and stay that way? When this happens to me I usually end up reading for hours until I can no longer see well enough to keep reading. Sadly this doesn't always help. Then there is warm milk...... ok ,I have never been able to get myself to try this one, its just doesn't appeal to me. If reading doesn't help and warm milk is out what else is there?
Our friends over at Tipnut.com have another option for you to try. Herbal sleep pouches
filled with lavender
. Lavender has long been purported to aid in falling asleep. It would stand to reason that filling a pouch with the stuff and putting in your pillow at night just might help you fall asleep.
All you need to make these pouches is well, a pouch. You can make your own or possibly buy one. You also need lavender buds, lemon balm leaves and flax seed. The Tipnut
article gives you the exact amounts you will need. Once you fill your pouch all you need to do is sew it up, place it in your pillow and hope it helps you sleep.
Note: Lavender and lemon balm leaves are herbs and could cause allergies. If you have trouble with allergies make sure you are not bothered by these herbs before you try to sleep with them in your pillow.
