During the holidays, it's easy to fall into a stress cycle, loose sleep or become ill. It's important that we support our nervous system, allowing the body to relax and recover. Today, Hilary Pearlson, from Jewels of a Dreamer shares her healing night time tonic which restores adrenal function and promotes deep, restful sleep. A powerful remedy that will keep you feeling grounded and nourished all season long!
H | Maintaining morning and evening rituals is one of the greatest ways to stay grounded and supported despite whatever the day may bring. Life gets busy and hectic, it is nearly impossible to jump into a state of total relaxation once the evening approaches. Calming your mind and body is crucial to transition into nighttime with ease. This tonic (along with a great book, mantra playing and candles burning) helps me to release anything not serving me and arrive at a happy, serene place.
The ashwagandha is restorative while reducing anxiety, reishi supports the immune system and relieves stress and mucuna pruriens soothes the entire nervous system. Mixed with the gynostemma or chamomile tea, you will be amazed at the feeling of bliss that washes over you. This tonic is my absolute favorite way to unwind, calm my nervous system and prepare for sweet dreams.
½ tsp ashwagandha
½ tsp reishi
½ tsp mucuna pruriens
few drops of omica organics stevia
splash of unsweetened coconut mylk
Brew a cup of chamomile or gynostemma tea
Add tea + all ingredients into blender (for herbs I use Sun Potion)
Blend together + sip slowly with cozy slippers and lit candles!
