The Cinderella-how-to: sip on herbs, sleep on silk.

Dr. Nat Kringoudis explains how Sleep Tea works within the body:
"One of the reasons we find it so difficult to rest at night is due to an overwhelming feeling of heat. Some people report night sweats whilst others tell us they need to sleep with their feet poking out of the covers. Perhaps you can relate. Of course not everybody experiences night time heat (most of us like to actually sleep cosy but not sweltering!) and so we’ve used a special herb, from the lotus plant which helps to clear any excessive heat. This means you will feel calmer, less sweaty and in turn, more relaxed. Too much heat in the body can make the mind race along like you’re Usain Bolt (the current holder of the ‘fastest man’ title). It can also contribute to restlessness and weird dreams – the kind that you would very much like to forget because they often involve an awkward moment with an ex partner or something random like an affair with your very unattractive boss. Nobody is ever going to wake rested after a night of horror!"
Anyone who is needing a little help relaxing.
For the young, elderly, pregnant, breastfeeding, or those recovering from severe illness, whilst it isn't contraindicated, it's important to consult your healthcare professional before cleansing. If you're under the age of 15 we recommend seeking parental permission.
Sleep Tea is designed to be consumed consecutively over 20 days (2 x a day), though, can also be consumed as needed. Brew for 5-7 minutes at a time. Drink 30 minutes before or after meals.
Hot tip: Feel free to add a squeeze of lemon or dash of honey.
