Traditionally, cultures around the world have valued dreaming as a means to commune with the spirit world, recognize crucial symbols in their lives, and offer a source of vision and perspective into future events. Dream Herbal Tea from Vana Tisanes incorporates the following herbs that offer the power of invoking dreams:
Chamomile Flower is known to support a sense of mental calm and soothes wired nerves providing a restful sleep. It may also be beneﬁcial for those who have nightmares.
Ginkgo Biloba Leaf helps to increase lucid dreaming by improving blood flow and nutrients to the brain, which in turn improves memory, brain function, brain speed and critical thinking. This results in more vivid dreams, and a increased likeliness that you will remember them afterward.
Holy Basil Leaf is an adaptogenic herb that helps your body to chemically adapt to outside stressors and promote mental balance by halting production of the stress-hormone cortisol. It has also been known to help people deal with recurring nightmares and night terrors.
Lavender Flower can help calm anxious feelings and encourage more restful sleep. It helps the mind fall asleep faster and stay asleep in a deeper way. Removes nervous exhaustion and restlessness while also increasing mental activity in preparation for conscious dreams.
Lemon Balm Leaf plays a role in encouraging deep, restful sleep by supporting mood and mental calmness. Lemon balm indirectly encourages sleep by improving mood and inducing mental calmness. Lemon balm can be considered a nootropic or a brain-enhancing supplement since it can improve cognitive performance.
Mugwort “takes you up a level” from your habitual dream state. If you tend not to remember anything about 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 might have other senses engaged. 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 supports the nervous system in unwinding when you are feeling wound up from occasional anxiety. Being in a state of relaxation, allows for the dream work to be more easily attainable. Some evidence indicates that passionflower can have a positive effect on sleep patterns enhancing vivid dreams that occur during our REM sleep cycle.
Peppermint Leaf has relaxing properties which can help reduce tension from your muscles and can help consumers sleep for longer hours and have a better quality sleep. It not only bring about muscle relaxation for a more restful sleep; this tea has properties that can bring about vivid dreams.
Rosemary Leaf can enhance cerebral activity and memory. One of the biggest struggles of tapping into our dreams and subconsciousness is remembering them so when our cognitive function and memory recall are in sharp condition, we are able to recall our dreams more easily.
Valerian Root contains compounds that stimulate opioid receptors and serotonin production in your brain, producing relaxing and antidepressant effects. Overall, these sedative properties may promote deeper sleep patterns that lead to vivid dreams. Valerian’s ability to make our dreams more vivid is one of the reasons it is easier to recall dreams.
