Discover the 3 Grandma’s Tips To Sleep Like A Baby Tonight.

Tired of not being able to fall asleep at night?

Insomnia is indeed a problem that affects more and more people.

Fortunately, there are natural remedies for sleeping well without taking addictive drugs.


I give you here 3 grandmother recipes to fight against chronic insomnia.

These natural drinks are super effective in falling asleep much easier every day.

Since trying these tips, I am calmer and fall asleep within minutes. A real baby!

Here are these 3 homemade recipes that will help you sleep well :


1. A herbal tea with chamomile and lavender

This infusion is made up of 2 of the most relaxing plants: lavender and chamomile.

They are known to promote calm and sleep.

Why chamomile?

It is not known exactly what, in chamomile, gives it this small “sedative” effect. But according to some studies, chamomile contains apigenin which binds to GABA receptors in the brain.

This creates a reaction similar to that of anti-anxiety drugs, such as Xanax.


GABA is the second most important amino acid in the body, playing a calming role and helping to fall asleep.

Why lavender?

Lavender is a scent that has been used to relax and unwind for centuries.

A recent study showed that people exposed to its scent were more relaxed and would more easily go into drowsiness.


  • 1 teaspoon of lavender flowers
  • 1 teaspoon of chamomile flowers

  • 250 ml of hot water

  • milk or honey according to your taste (optional).

How to do

  • Bring the water to a boil.

  • In a tea ball or colander, place the lavender and chamomile flowers.

  • Put the ball in the cup and pour boiling water over it.

  • Leave to infuse for 10 to 15 minutes. The longer the brew, the stronger the flavor.

  • Add milk and/or honey according to your taste.

  • If you don’t have a tea scoop, just pour hot water over the herbs in a bowl and use a kitchen strainer to strain everything before drinking.


2. Hot milk with honey and nutmeg

Here is a tasty recipe for hot milk, honey, and a pinch of nutmeg.

This is your entrance ticket in the arms of Morphée!

Why hot milk?

The idea that hot milk makes you fall asleep comes from the ages.

Our ancestors, for generations, have used it to fall asleep and it works.


Studies have shown that milk does not increase tryptophan levels, contrary to popular belief.

On the other hand, it increases the internal temperature of the body, which relaxes you, calms you down, and helps you fall asleep better.

Hot milk seems to have a psychological effect that makes us calm and drowsy.


Maybe it takes us back to our early childhood?


Why honey?

L-tryptophan is a vital amino acid for our rest.

It looks like serotonin, which can be converted into melatonin.

And it is the latter that regulates our sleep-wake cycles.

Eventually, as night approaches, you have more melatonin which tells your body “OK, it’s time to sleep now”.


Why nutmeg?

Nutmeg is a powerful spice.

So much so that it is very possible to “overdose” it and feel incredibly bad, or hallucinating…

But rest assured, ingested in small doses, it is safe.

It is an excellent natural sleeping pill, thanks to its many chemical components which act in the same way as tranquilizers.



  • 1 glass of milk (250 ml)
  • 1 teaspoon (and up to 2 tablespoons) of honey

  • 1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg.

How to do

  • Heat 250 ml of milk.

  • Heat it until it is a little hotter than what you can normally drink,

  • Add the honey.

  • Sprinkle with ground nutmeg, and let cool until drinkable.

  • Drink about 30 minutes before going to bed.

  • When you start to relax, keep drinking slowly and enjoy!


3. Cherry juice with vanilla

Ever since I tasted it, cherry juice has entered my daily routine.

Whether it’s morning or evening, I can’t do without it.

In addition, it is an easy drink to concoct!

Why cherry juice?

Cherries are rich in melatonin, the hormone that regulates our sleep and wake cycles.


Thus, a glass of this ruby red juice, tangy, but sweet, every morning and every evening allows you to keep your sleep rhythm.

Why vanilla?

Vanilla has a calming scent.

Adding a drop of vanilla extract to the cherry juice makes you feel calmer and fall asleep more easily.


  • 150 to 200 ml of tart cherry juice

  • 1 or 2 drops of vanilla extract

How to do

  • In the morning, serve yourself about 150 ml of tart cherry juice and drink it completely.

  • In the evening, about an hour before going to bed, repeat the operation adding a drop or two of vanilla extract (optional).

  • I advise you to use vanilla only in the evening because it has a relaxing effect.
