We all have restless nights and end up staring at the bedroom ceiling instead of getting sleep. However, I have discovered a wonderful natural aid to help you drift off with a peaceful state of mind with this wonderful homemade DIY Herbal Sleep Potion Potpourri recipe.
What I found especially helpful is making a sleep potion potpourri sachet bag to keep near your pillow. This beneficial aroma has the power to soothe you when stressed, somehow, as you breathe it in.
This DIY Herbal Sleep Potion Potpourri is a wonderful mix to make and save for those awful nights when sleep seems impossible.
DIY Herbal Sleep Potion Potpourri
3 cups of spearmint
3 cups of rose leaves
1 cup of whole cloves
1 ounce of orris root (fixative)
Dry the mint (leaves and also stems) and the rose leaves on a screen in a warm place so the air can circulate properly. You can also resort to drying them on a sheet of newspaper in a warm spot.
When this is dry, mix with cloves and the orris root. Put in a glass jar and cover tightly with a lid for a few weeks, stirring occasionally.
You can just open when needed or make some sachet bags to keep handy.
This is a wonderful potpourri to make and save for those awful nights.
