A goodnight's sleep begins with a cup

If you know me by now, I guess you know my favorite pastime is sleeping. Yes, I love a good night’s sleep. Who doesn’t? A majority of us has sleeping issues, contributed by many factors such as stress, health condition, anxiety and so much more. I guess there’s just too much in the head for me as I had trouble sleeping for the longest time and I would resort to sleeping pills. We all know how bad these pills are for the mind and the body. They are very costly too, I didn’t want to waste my hard earned money on those pills so I resorted to Antihistamines, which block a neurotransmitter called ‘histamine’ which helps the body stay awake. Antihistamines are much easier to get but they are definitely not used to treat sleep issues as our body develops a tolerance to the drug and won’t respond the same way over time, so it’ll be back to square one. Antihistamines doesn’t work for me anymore, I guess my body just got immune to them. If any of the above sounds like you, then please keep reading.


     

I was introduced to something new called tea. First thing that crossed my mind was that tea contains caffeine. Caffeine is supposed to keep you awake. No? Well in fact this tea I am referring to does not contain caffeine at all but herbs. REBALANCE by SleepyWinks is a two-part herbal blend that helps you deal with stress naturally and sleep like a baby — every night!

The Tea
The two part herbal blend is divided into Day Blend and Night Blend. The blends are made from plenty of nerve-soothing ingredients and these ingredients are freshly picked herbs of premium quality. The ingredients are untampered with, unadulterated, and pure - just as Mother Nature intended them to be. Each of the herbs in SleepyWinks products is carefully chosen for one additional reason: beneficial interactions. Chamomile, rooibos, valerian root - the synergy of their active constituents has healing properties that go beyond the sum of their parts.  The day blend contains a blend of herbs such as Genmaicha, Chamomile, Cinnamon, Pumpkin, Elderberry Flower, Lemon balm, Blackberry leaf and Blue mallow flower while the Night blend is of Chamomile, Rooibos, Cinnamon, Silver Lime Flower, Lemon Balm, Valerian Root, Lavender Flower, Red Rose Petal, Passionflower herb, Marigold flower, Morello Cherry and Hobs. REBALANCE is a two-part formula that consists of the Day and Night blend packets, where each 30-DAY packet contains 30 bags.  I must warn you the aroma is just amazing! Each bag has been lovingly labelled day/night and I find this really pretty.


How to take?
SleepyWinks tea is very easy to prepare, all you have to do is add 1 bag into 236ml of hot water and steep it for 5-6 minutes. Consume the day blend in the day time before 5pm, you may add in ice cubes if you wish. The night blend is recommended to be taken hot/warm, 10 minutes before bedtime, and do not drive or operate machinery after consuming. Yes, mobile phones included.


The Taste
I had never tried any sleepy tea blends. This is my first and I must say that I didn’t take my first cup too well. It tasted bland as I am not much of a herbal tea kind of person. On the second and third night, I started to find that it tasted rather pleasant and now I don’t miss a cup. Lol. I like my tea on the sweeter side so I added half a teaspoon of raw honey.

The effects it has on me I was skeptical. Herbal blends are not drugs. They do not work like them, but somehow these blends have a very calming effect on me. The day blend actually keeps me awake during the day. I used to get sleepy after lunch time and at around 4.30pm, but on days when I take the tea I don’t seem to be having such problems. The night blend relaxes my body and allows me to drift into sleep, that is if I am not playing with my mobile phone scrolling thru feeds. This may just be a coincidence so I tried doing the on and off thing and sure enough on days that I take the tea I wake up feeling more rested than on days that I don’t. I guess I fall into deep sleep with SleepyWinks and without I am just sleeping, and not quality sleep. I would recommend this tea to everyone, not only to those suffering from insomnia. This tea can keep you calm and relaxes your mind so that you have quality sleep. Click the links below to find out more.
