rosso: I am not entirely sure if you will take me seriously on this lol but one option would be to get a small amethyst to place under your pillow, i use one for each of my kids and it has helped them to have a great sound sleep since my oldest was a newborn 12 yrs ago haha...
each of them have their own crystal they picked for themselves, which is of great importance as the crystal that you choose gives you a good tingly feeling meaning it is specifically for you.
Herb-wise: Valerian root: It stinks, but it’s the most effective sleep-inducer of all herbal cures. You can find it in capsule, tea, tablet or liquid extract forms. Valerian root can also ease anxiety and muscle stiffness.
Chamomile Tea: Drink a cup before hitting the sheets. Chamomile tea can also help out with digestive problems, menstrual cramps and more.
Celery: Munch on some; it’s loaded with sedatives. there are hundreds of recipes that use celery -- try one!
Lemon balm: It can be soothing and emit a pleasant scent.
Lavender: Take a whiff of lavender while taking a warm evening bath. It relaxes the nervous system, reducing stress hormones that often keep you awake. Lavender’s scent also ups the production of relaxing alpha waves in the brain for deeper sleep. If you get migraines, lavender can help with that too.
Hops: If your sleeping problems are connected to your period, hops can be useful because it balances out fluctuating hormone levels. Stuff a sleep sachet containing the herb under your pillow.
Hope that helps
