Does Tea Make You Sleepy?

Some teas contain certain herbs with medicinal benefits and aromatherapeutic properties that have been used for centuries to reduce stress, induce sleep, relieve headaches, and even naturally improve your quality of sleep when used over time. Herbal tea proven to aid in better sleep contain chamomile, valerian root, lavender, lemon balm, ashwagandha, and passionflower - or a combination of several of these ingredients and more.

Chamomile is often a base in sleep tea because it contains the antioxidant apigenin, which connects to the brain receptors that decrease anxiety and induce the feeling of sleepiness. Valerian root functions similarly as a sleep aid, as it increases the neurotransmitters that combat insomnia and anxiety. Recent studies have shown that passionflower, especially when combined with some of these other herbs, can also be effective in improving sleep quality. The floral fragrance of lavender and fresh citrus aroma of lemon balm also have a proven calming effect that eases you into restorative rest.
