Relaxing Infusion! Especially good, if you have high levels of oestrogen and trouble sleeping.

Drink this infusion cold or hot throughout the day to calm the nervous system. All ingredients are available in the health food stores.


  • 1 teaspoon of valerian root
  • 1 tablespoon oat straw (Avena satvia)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon balm
  • 1 tablespoon chamomile
  • 1 tablespoon of hops
  • 1 litre of boiled water


Pour the boiling water over the herbs and let it infuse between 15 minutes and 2 hours before you filtering away the herbs. The longer the infusion brews, the stronger it becomes.


It might be a good idea to prepare the infusion and leave it to brew at night before going to bed. The next day it is ready and you can drink it throughout the day.

Valerian, oat straw, lemon balm, chamomile, and hops all have a relaxing effect on the nervous system.

OAT STRAW (avena sativa) calms the central nervous system. Oat straw is rich in saponins, sterols and avonoids. It is used as tincture or extract against depression, nervousness, insomnia, and melancholy and is particularly good during menopause. Ask in the health food stores.
