RE: Lettuce tea I apologize that I’ve lost track of who I was talking to about it but I tried the lettuce tea last night. My usual sleep routine is I go through my pre sleep routine 1 - 2 hours before I become actually sleepy enough to lie down. Then I toss and turn for up to an hour in our bed, then go in the other room and toss and turn for what is at times another 3 hours. I added the lettuce tea to my sleep routine last night and it was impossible for me to keep my eyes open about a half hour later. I fell asleep after about ten minutes, rouse a bit later and then slept like a baby for the rest of the night. Will definitely be drinking more tonight. (On a ps I don’t have an exact recipe for it, I just steeped some romaine lettuce in hot tea like water for a while and then drank it later that night….)
I'm so glad it helped you! I've been trying to drink chamomile at night now as part of my bedtime/unwinding routine to calm mind and body ☺️
What a lovely ritual that must be. Surprisingly, especially for a Southerner, I just never developed an appreciation for tea but the ritual of it always seems so soothing….
