Keep Calm and Sleep On

There’s nothing worse than an unsatisfying night of sleep.

The solution to your snooze-related woes may lie in a perennial plant with white, pink and purple flowers. Native to parts of Europe and Asia, this plant goes by the name Valeriana officinalis – or more commonly, valerian.

The ground and dried root of this plant can be consumed in tea or supplement form and traditionally has been used to support a feeling of calmness, as well as deep, restful and restorative sleep. (Ahhhh, that sounds nice.)
