We are a people dependent on coffee, energy drinks, alcohol, and sleep pills to get us up and going in the morning and then to force our bodies to submit to rest, and the unfortunate fact is that every one of these disrupts our body’s natural ability to maintain quality sleep (and yes, including sleep pills, these are especially destructive to quality self-sustained sleep!), on top of their other side effects. Luckily there are many effective and healthy options to help get your sleep in order, be it for a single night of sleep trouble, or sustained chronic insomnia and all without actually damaging your natural sleep cycle, or other side effects. Here we will discuss the natural herbs and essential oils that you can use to support healthy and satisfying slumber.
