Simple Bliss Relaxing Tea Recipe

We all have nights when we canít sleep, whether it be from stress, illness, or just running those daily scenarios round and round in our heads.

Thereís nothing worse than “trying” to get to sleep. You can count as many sheep as you want, practice body relaxation techniques, or read your computer manual, but those eyes continue to remain agonizingly wide open! And with the busy days of Spring before us, it becomes all the more important to get the sleep we need.

So here is a super easy-to-make tea that will help you get a deep and relaxing nightís sleep. Simple Bliss Tea is delicious, too–sip it slowly and feel the relaxation seep through your body. Itís very soothing and safe for daily use.

1/4 cup dried chamomile flowers per cup (be sure you are not allergic to chamomile)
1/4 cup vanilla soy milk, cream, milk, or half-and-half per cup
Honey or maple syrup to sweeten

1. Pour boiling water over the chamomile, cover, and steep 15 to 20 minutes, until strong.
