Made with Carob (Ceratonia siliqua), Ashwaganhda (Withania somnifera) and Oats (Avena sativa), this comforting drink helps to calm the nervous system, at the same time restoring the body’s energy while you sleep.
Ashwagandha is a calming adaptogenic (tonic) herb. The botanical name Withania somnifera derives from somnus (“sleep”) + -fer (“carrying”), and the Hindi name Ashwagandha means “sweat of the horse,” but is taken to mean strength of the horse. So, this marvellous herb carries you off to sleep, and whilst you are there, it confers upon you, the strength of the horse. My experience of this herb is that while my lovely patient is sleeping, it gently nourishes the adrenals, thyroid, immune and reproductive systems, so that when the person awakens much healing work has taken place during the night, and over time, strength is restored.
I like to use Oats for those whose nervous system is exhausted. They may feel wired and tired, and even saddened by life. Oats contain B vitamins and magnesium, which nourish the nervous system, but they also contain tryptophan, which converts into serotonin, helping us to relax, feel happier; and melatonin, which helps us sleep more deeply.
The Carob gives a lovely malty sweetness to the drink, as well as the qualities mentioned under the Day-time Potion. Together, these herbal ingredients make a comforting night time drink, helping you to drop off into a restorative sleep.
