Sweet Dreams Tub Tea
Sweet Dreams Tub Tea is a simple combination of plants designed to combat exhaustion, promote relaxation, and induce sleep.
Lavender (Lavendula officinalis): the volatile oils released from lavender act deeply on nerves, muscles, and neurovascular system. Lavender is a cooling relaxant due to it's ability to stimulate peripheral circulation in the capillary network. It also has a long history of being used as a mental calmative confirmed by modern research revealing lavender oil's influence directly on seratonin receptors and the nervous system.
Oatstraw (Avena sativa): Full of essential vitamins and minerals, oatstraw tonifies the nervous system that has been depleted by stress or chronic illness to combat total exhaustion. Multiple human research studies in recent years confirm Avena sativa's benefits on cognitive function and its ability to modulate one's physiological response to stress.
Chamomile (Matricaria recutita): Chamomile tea contains chamazulene, an aromatic chemical compound that possesses anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antispasmodic properties. This gives it cooling and relaxing qualities making it useful in cases of heat and tension contributing to inflammation. Chamomile is also high in a flavonoid called apigenin that research has shown binds to the same cellular receptors used by benzodiazipines but without the addictive qualities of these pharmacological tranquilizers used to induce sleep. It is also chock full of antioxidants that help soothe and heal irritated skin.
