3. Passion Flower

This is an herb that is well known to help induce deep and restful sleep. It has been used by Native Americans for untold centuries to stop anxiety and seizures. If you find you have difficulty sleeping due to anxiety issues, passion flower should work well for you. Read the labels on any herbal tonic that says it helps to induce sleep and you will most likely find passion flower in the list of ingredients.

 

4. Oat straw

Like alfalfa, this herb is high in nutrients that are important for providing support for a healthy nervous system. This is another herb that is probably best used in conjunction with another calming herb such as passion flower or valerian.

 

5. Skullcap

Skullcap is an herb that can help calm your body by calming the mind. If you have ever had one of those days where you were totally exhausted, but too wound up to sleep, then you know what we mean. Skullcap can help to calm the mind so that the body can get the rest it desperately needs. If you have those occasional “bad days” at work, then skullcap is a great way to get some much needed relief.
