The sleepy nutmeg


After spending hours staring at a computer screen making my blog yesterday I was so wired that I couldn't sleep. I was lying in bed for ages and then finally got up and decided to give an Ayurvedic remedy that I had read about a try.
I was also feeling a bit chilled from a cold that I have so decided to have a hot shower first.

Then on to the remedy - hot milk with nutmeg.
I only had soy milk as I had changed from cow's milk when I started to get the cold as its lighter and causes less congestion. So I heated some soy milk in a pan with about half a teaspoon of nutmeg. It was an interesting taste, not bad and much better than any medicine that's for sure. So I sat quietly sipped at my nutmeg milk and went to be. I did not lay there long before I fell into a deep deep sleep.

So the next time you have trouble sleeping give it a go and tell me what you think. I will definitely be making it again.


* A precautionary note for pregnant women - nutmeg should not be taken in high doses.
