Description: Insomnia, by the time you realize it’s gotten its talons into you, it’s generally too late – you’ve fallen asleep in a meeting, slept through your best friend’s wedding, missed a job interview or worse. The condition has to do with what are known as Circadian rhythms, (the scientific term for the natural times our bodies are susceptible to falling asleep). According to sleep researchers, there are two peak times a day when these rhythms kick in, 3 am to 5 am and 3 pm to 5 pm. (Not surprisingly, research also shows there to be a disproportionate number of traffic accidents at those times – we said there was much worse than falling asleep at a meeting!)
So, what can you do to combat insomnia? There are many who opt for a chemically assisted solution, i.e. popping a sleeping pill and drifting off to sleep. Certainly this would ensure you get rested, but sleeping pills come with their own set of potential complications. We’ve developed a number of methods for combating insomnia to the best of our abilities. One of these has always been to use a blend of THE DREAMER. The herbal combo soothes the mind and body and provides the body with a good dose of vitamins and antioxidants, making our sleep a little more easy to deal with. In this version of our blend, we’ve added a dash of St John’s Wort to help you drift off to dreamland. Simply brew, ease to bed and enjoy.

Hot tea brewing method: Bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon for each 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time, the better the flavor as more fruit or herb flavor is extracted).
Best consumed straight up.
Iced tea brewing method (Pitcher) (to make 1 litre): Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using fresh cold water, boil and pour 1¼cups, 315ml into the pot. Steep for 5 – 10 minutes.
Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top -up the pitcher with cold water.
