Valerian Mint Cordial

or as it is called in my home: “Shut Up and Go To Sleep!

No matter how hard I try to maintain a good sleep schedule, I often find myself lying awake, staring at the ceiling long after I should be asleep. My mind is either going over tomorrow’s plans, replaying today’s conversations over and over, or fixating on some other anxiety that I just can’t let go of. Exhaustion, stress, and anxiety take a serious toll on our bodies, causing headaches, tense muscles, and even weakening our immune systems.

Getting a good night’s sleep is important, and valerian mint cordial is the perfect herbal nightcap to help summon the sandman.

    What do you think about using elderberry syrup as a flavoring? You’d have more flavor than just honey, plus, immune support.

      Gina, sure! I don’t see why not. The mint helps with the valerian flavor and the gas, but using elderberry would be good for other reasons. I can’t quite see using all three, flavor-wise. 🙂
