Herbal 'moon milk' recipes for a better sleep

'Moon Milks' are suitable for all ages, these therapeutic and delicious cups of goodness are full to the brim of nature's best to help bring quiet to the mind and gently prepare the body for bed. Your new night-time ritual can be made with simple ingredients from your pantry and home garden.

Here are three of my favourite Moon Milk recipes, and key nutritional health benefits, that once sipped and slurped, will make all of your sweet dreams come true.

Vanilla Magnesium Moon Mylk Benefits:

Magnesium is an essential mineral that is involved in over 300 processes within the body. Here we use it to help support the body’s response to stress, as we burn through magnesium at increased rates when under extra pressure and stress. It is also involved in the production of important neurotransmitters that are involved in sleep processes, thus can help to support healthy sleep.

Made from almonds, cashews, and brazil nuts, which are all rich in the important sleep and relaxation mineral magnesium. Choose to reduce single-use plastics and source all of these nuts in your local Huckleberry bulk bins.

Chamomile & Lavender Moon Milk Benefits:

Chamomile – a classic relaxation herb that is safe for the whole family to take. It is a nervous system relaxant that helps in cases of sleeplessness and nervous tension. Great for helping to calm body and mind.

Chamomile and Lavender are two herbs with a well-known use for aiding sleep and may already be growing in your home garden. These medicinal plants are dreamy additions to a warm, bedtime milk.

Reishi, Honey, and Spices Moon Milk Benefits: 

Reishi – a medicinal mushroom that is highly regarded for its adaptogenic properties, meaning it helps the body adapt and cope better during times of stress. As stress is often associated with sleep dysfunction or difficulties, supporting the body's stress response will in turn encourage better sleep.

This prestigious tonic herb brings peace to the body, mind, and spirit and is thus a perfect addition to a Moon Milk.
