The best infusions for sleeping


Among the thousands of remedies to fall asleep that have ever been considered, are infusions: those herbal drinks (more or less delicious) that seem to cure everything.

If you want to feel like a real shaman, read on to discover which infusions are good to help you sleep.

How do you prepare an infusion?

If you are bad at cooking recipes, don't despair: there is nothing easier than preparing an infusion.

The only ingredients needed are boiling water and the herbs to be consumed (and sugar or honey if desired). Once the water is in a cup, add the herbs and wait between 5 and 10 minutes (depending on the type of herb). And ready!

Herbs for infusions can be purchased in small sachets, like teas, which are very convenient (although they generate more waste) or in packets, which would require a small infusion strainer.


Passionflower, also known as 'passion flower', is a flower that, when consumed, has great sedative properties, calming tachycardia, migraines, muscle pain and preventing gastrointestinal spasms, improving the quality of sleep of the consumer.


This flower, so popular in the world of infusions, considerably reduces nervousness, the time it takes to fall asleep and anxiety in the person. Combined with passionflower, the sedative effects of both herbs are enhanced.

However, it is contraindicated for pregnancy, treatments with powerful sleeping pills, their mixture with alcohol and breastfeeding periods, due to its powerful (yet natural) effects.

Linden and chamomile

Although they can be drunk separately perfectly, these two plants like to go hand in hand like best friends (and they work very well as a team!)

Linden is possibly the most famous infusion thanks to its calming effects and softness (you can drink up to four cups of lime a day).

Chamomile, on the other hand, works wonders when it comes to calming the heaviness of meals and stomach pains, in addition to having anti-inflammatory, sedative, anti-allergic and antibacterial properties.


Lemon verbena is a plant native to South America that has enormous tranquilizing effects: it helps clear the mind, relieve stress and the effects of indigestion. However, its consumption is not recommended for pregnant women.


This flower, both drinking it and smelling it, has calming aromas that help sleep properly. In addition, reduces fever, the effects of colds and respiratory diseases such as asthma.


The poppy is one of the most appreciated flowers in medicine thanks to its sedative, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is worth distinguishing between two types of poppies: the opium poppy (which is the one from which opium is derived and contains morphine) and the wild poppy, which does not contain any of the above.

Wild poppy infusion helps to calm nerves, irritability, headaches and tachycardia. The readine (a type of alkaloid) contained in poppy helps fight insomnia and respiratory conditions.

Turmeric tea

The last tea we are going to talk about, (and possibly less known) is turmeric tea. It acts as anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and antibiotic. And, taken with honey, its effects are further enhanced.

Run to the supermarket or your nearest herbalist and drink tea to sleep like a baby!
