Nighty Night Extra™ Sleep Tea by Traditional Medicinals
"This is one of my two favorite nighttime teas, and it's an important part of my wind-down routine, helping to signal the transition between day and night. When I finish working for the day, I will steep a small cup of this tea to help my mind and body "shut down" so I can get a better night’s sleep and wake up feeling more refreshed. I recommend trying both Traditional MedicinaTradls' "Nighty Night Extra" and Gaia Herbs' "Sleep & Relax" because they contain different herbs which can affect people differently. Nighty Night Extra contains valerian (Sleep & Relax doesn’t) which can work wonders for some." - Jiying
