If you find yourself, or your partner tossing and turning at night or unable to sleep without a podcast or documentary to help, it might be time to consider Ashwagandha + Chill and here’s why:
This flower has been used as an ancient remedy since Hippocrates (that’s 500 BC for the non-history buffs). It’s ancient uses include treatments for fever, headaches, kidney, liver, and bladder problems, upset stomachs, muscle spasms, anxiety, insomnia, skin irritations, bruises, gout, ulcers, rheumatic pain, hay fever, inflammation, hemorrhoids, colic, and even menstrual disorders. Since then, we now see chamomile used primarily to promote calmness and help with insomnia and anxiety. It has been one of the most widely used ingredients as an alternative to many sleep medications, making it a key ingredient in the Ashwagandha + Chill Tea.
Peppermint has acted as an all-natural holistic alternative for tension headaches and migraines. Many people find peppermint scents to be soothing and calming, which also helps in the mind and body connection. It is also naturally caffeine-free which makes the addition of peppermint ideal in any wellness tea to help promote a restful night’s sleep! It’s refreshing, minty flavor doesn’t hurt either before bed!
Don’t let the name of this herb scare you! It’s actually equally as ancient and widely used as chamomile and peppermint when it comes to the world of holistic wellness. In fact, it’s even more researched than peppermint when it comes to its alternative health benefits! It’s been used in many Asian countries for over 2000 years, and Indigenous tribes also collected the herb to help with women’s menstrual disorders. There is also plenty of scientific research that has confirmed skullcap as a herb that helps reduce feelings of anxiety and stress. The flavor is adjacent to peppermint, which is an added bonus if you were worried about what skullcap tastes like!
Not just for the aesthetic, rose petals have also been studied and shown to have many stress-relieving benefits! They can also reduce anxiety and aid with digestive issues. Rose petals are also high in antioxidants, which can help promote cellular health within the body. Paired with its ability to reduce inflammation and antimicrobial properties, rose petals are definitely more than just pretty to look at!
This is not a word we made up! It’s actually a well-known plant classified as an adaptogen since it’s most effective when consumed in a tea, tincture, or raw. It’s best known for its stress-relieving properties which studies have shown can lead to an overall better quality of sleep. Its benefits for both men and women are also nothing short of remarkable!
For women, it can increase pleasure and the overall bedroom experience, if you know what we mean! May we suggest a glass before some Netflix + Chill on your next date night? We all know nothing helps promote a better sleep than a satisfying round in the bedroom, ladies!
For men, ashwagandha has been proven to increase testosterone and fertility by rebalancing the reproductive hormones. Oddly enough, when studies were performed on men and women, men saw an increase in testosterone whereas women did not - it’s just that good!
