drank Sleepytime by Celestial Seasonings
1212 tasting notes

I saw my parents had a K-cup of this stuff, so I made it. I’ve been trying to find a good way to get myself to fall asleep and stay asleep. I’ve been using Benadryl and it makes me groggy in the morning. I know they’re not gonna drink this so I made it. I fell asleep within 20 minutes of finishing it and stayed asleep until 9.

I can’t even remember the last time I didn’t repeatedly wake up during the night before this.

Needless to say I immediately got a box of the teabags this morning.

I’m not really fond of how it smells, but it’s very soothing, and relaxing, and actually helped me fall asleep. And I felt awesome this morning. In the future I’ll probably blend something up myself since I am growing a ton of mint, but for the time being, this stuff isn’t bad and does everything I hoped.

Also a bear “picks” the herbs so that won me over too.

I have used Melatonin with some (mild) success to help me sleep (without the groggy side-effect many over-the-counter drugs seem to have). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melatonin

I’ve had another person mention melatonin, I think if I took it along with drinking Sleepytime at night it would probably help even more. Thanks for the link, I haven’t looked into it too much yet and now I will!

When I was younger, I had some sleeping problems too. Melatonin never seemed to work for me much, but Valerian root did. CS makes a Sleepytime Extra that has Valerian root in it, Missy picked some up… sometime last week. She hasn’t actually tried it though.

We also have Bedtime Chai II from California Tea House. It’s a kangaroo chai with valerian root. It’s a little on the medicinal side for taste, but it gives Missy the best nights of sleep of her life.

I was hoping to find that Sleepytime Extra, but they didn’t have it. I have yet to go to a grocery store now that I’m back at home, but their store finder says it’s at both the Target and grocery store right near where I live. So maybe I’ll find it tomorrow and give it a try.

I recommend you don’t use drugs (over-the-counter “medicine”). It’s better if you keep it all natural with herbs and such like cannabis or sleepytime.

oh thanks person I didn’t ask for advice on a 7 month old issue that’s now irrelevant I’ll sure go out and find illegal drugs in the bible belt, great advice.
