Dream Tea

Good sleep is essential to good health. A warm cup of herbal tea before bed is just the thing to relax the body and mind. The following recipe is my own creation. It contains spearmint for flavor and a positive mood, chamomile for relaxation, rose petals for sleep and mugwort for dreams. This tea induces a gentle sleep and may produce vivid dreams.

Combine the herbs in the following way for a lovely tea:

¼ cup dried spearmint

¼ cup dried culinary grade rose petals

¼ cup dried chamomile

1/8 cup dried mugwort

Place the herbs in a bowl and mix well. Store in a clean, dry, sealed glass jar. To use, place 2 TBS in a tea strainer and steep in hot water for 2-3 min. Add honey if desired. Drink one cup before bedtime.
