Try This Easy Homemade Sleep Remedy With Just 4 Ingredients

And improve total brain health

We’ve talked a lot about how important it is to get your sleep at Natural Society. It helps to regulate hormones, lower stress, and even staves off obesity and the diseases that are associated with it. Instead of heading to the pharmacy to take an over-the-counter sleep med that may be harmful to your health, try this simple, 4-ingredient home-made sleep remedy.

By making this concoction and taking it right before sleep, it helps to sustain the body, even through spikes of cortisol (the stress hormone), and insulin (which makes you hungry and want to get up for that midnight snack.) This means you can fall asleep and stay asleep more easily.

Ingredients For This Natural Sleep Remedy:

  1. Coconut oil
  2. Raw, organic honey
  3. Himalayan sea salt
  4. Lavender

The coconut oil is full of healthful fats, which will help sustain your glucose levels.

The honey does the same, while providing important nutrients and reducing insulin spikes since it is digested slowly. It is known as nature’s energy booster. It may sound counter intuitive to eat an energy booster before sleep, but it can help to keep your sugar levels stable so that the body doesn’t wake up with hunger pangs.

The sea salt lowers cortisol and adrenaline, which can make it impossible to fall asleep. It also raises oxytocin levels (the feel good hormones, or ‘the love hormone’ which can also help you to feel relaxed and fall asleep.) Oxytocin also lowers stress hormones.

The lavender smells amazing, and reduces stress – again so that you can fall asleep. Lavender flowers are edible, so you can place them right into your mixture.

Directions:

  • Simply use 3 parts coconut oil to ½ part honey.
  • Add a pinch of sea salt and your lavender flower.
  • Eat a teaspoon about half an hour before going to bed.
  • If you happen to wake up, simply eat another teaspoon and you are likely to fall back to sleep more easily.
