Have you ever taken the overland track for a stroll up Cradle Mountain? By the time you arrive at the historic Kitchen Hut, it is a three hours return to climb to the summit. The views, on a clear day, are well worth the hard yakka and by the time you arrive home you’ll certainly sleep easily that night! I’m not that energetic, and much prefer a stroll into my not so historic kitchen, boiling my kettle, and brewing a soporific cup of Rock the Cradle. Not such hard yakka but a good night’s sleep, all the same!
Organic Tasmanian Lavender The most well-known health benefit of lavender tea is its ability to induce calm. The relaxing effects can help improve sleep and may be used to treat sleep disorders. Drinking Rock the Cradle before bed can help you achieve more restful sleep. According to multiple scientific studies, lavender tea helps calm brain function by triggering chemical reactions in the nervous system and boosting the production of dopamine and reducing the stress hormone known as cortisol. One such study found that lavender increases the percentage of deep slow-wave sleep, which is considered the restorative sleep phase.
It also contains high amounts of antioxidants and antibacterial compounds that can help fend off the common cold and flu. Studies have shown that it also contains vitamin C, calcium, and magnesium.
Organic Passion Flower is a gentle anti-anxiety and mildly sedative herb that can even be used to induce a good night’s sleep in children.
Organic Tasmanian Chamomile is renowned for its sleep-inducing properties. It’s a natural sedative and muscle relaxant making it perfect for a refreshing night’s sleep. It can also soothe indigestion as well as being a natural way to boost the immune system and relieve symptoms of anxiety, making it more than just a sleep aid.
Organic Rose Petals packs your drink with health benefits that have been known for centuries. Not only do the rose petals create a beautifully fragrant, fruity and nutritious tea rich in natural antioxidants which can benefit your body in a number of ways, helping you to relax and even relieving digestive issues but they can also help to calm the mind and elevate your mood, having a positive impact on balancing stress hormones by calming down the nervous system. The high vitamin C content makes it an excellent natural boost for your immune system.
Pregnant women should be careful when drinking lavender tea due to its ability to mimic the oestrogen hormone. It’s always best to consult your doctor before consuming herbal teas when pregnant or breastfeeding. People who are allergic to lavender, daisy, rose or similar flowering plants should avoid drinking Rock the Cradle as there is the potential to trigger allergic reactions, although such reactions are very rare.
