Dream Herbal Tea from Vana Tisanes
Dream Herbal is both complex, refreshing, while also earthy and deeply relaxing. Chamomile and Lavender Flowers create a sweet, floral base to this tisane. Ginkgo Biloba Leaf, Mugwort, and Valerian Root add a slightly smoky depth that is grounded with a distinctly earthy flavor. Holy Basil and Peppermint Leaves elevate Dream Herbal Tea with a minty, refreshing taste. Lemon Balm Leaf and Passionflower add a hint of sweetness that is beautifully balanced by the piney, herbaceous flavor of Rosemary Leaves.
Chamomile Flower: Chamomile Flower supports a sense of calm and soothes nerves to promote restful sleep. It is also beneﬁcial for those who experience nightmares.
Ginkgo Biloba Leaf: Ginkgo Biloba Leaf helps to increase lucid dreaming by improving blood flow and nutrients to the brain, which in turn improves memory, brain function, cognition, and critical thinking. This results in more vivid dreams, and an increased likelihood to remember them afterward.
Holy Basil Leaf: Holy Basil Leaf is an adaptogenic herb that helps the body to adapt to outside stressors and promote mental balance by halting production of the stress-hormone cortisol. It is also helpful for those experiencing recurring nightmares and night terrors.
Lavender Flower: Lavender Flower helps to calm anxious feelings and encourage more restful sleep. It promotes the ability to fall asleep faster and stay asleep. By calming the mind and reducing restlessness, Lavender Flower helps ease the mind in preparation for lucid dreams.
Lemon Balm Leaf: Lemon Balm Leaf encourages deep, restful sleep by supporting mood and calmness. Lemon Balm is a nootropic or a brain-enhancing supplement by improving cognitive performance.
Mugwort: Mugwort “takes you up a level” from your habitual dream state. If you have difficulty remembering your dreams, Mugwort will help you recollect bits & pieces; if you have spotty recall, it will help you construct a more complete narrative thread. If you dream only in black & white, Mugwort may introduce colors. If you have solely visual dreams, Mugwort-enhanced dreams help to engage the other senses. If you already have good dream recall and rich texture to your dreams, you may begin to become aware of your dream state while dreaming, what is called lucid dreaming.
Passionflower: Passionflower supports the nervous system by promoting calm and reducing anxiety. Passionflower has a positive effect on sleep patterns by enhancing vivid dreams that occur during our REM sleep cycle.
Peppermint Leaf: Peppermint Leaf has relaxing properties which help to reduce tension in the muscles, help lengthen the duration of sleep while providing a better quality sleep. It also has properties that promote vivid dreams.
Rosemary Leaf: Rosemary Leaf enhances cerebral activity and improves memory. By promoting cognitive function and memory recall, the ability to recall dreams improves.
Valerian Root: Valerian Root contains compounds that stimulate the opioid receptors and serotonin production in the brain, increasing relaxation and antidepressant effects. These sedative properties promote deeper sleep patterns that lead to vivid dreams.
