I think this works really well, even with regular organic honey. I say try it, even if the others in your household give you funny looks for putting honey in warm milk. I slept undisturbed all night after drinking this!
Hubby was completely stressed and needed some good sleep which he had not been getting. I had been giving him herbal tea before bed but that wasnt working. I made this and he went right to sleep. Last night he asked for it again, in fact!! And it is tasty! thanks
Sorry Rita. I really wanted for this to work! I will give kidos that it tasted good, sooth the stomach....but nothing else!!
This really helped alot with a bout of insomnia I am facing right now.Plus it tastes good too! So warm and comforting - like curling up in front of a cozy fire! Thanks Rita! Bev Tag Rocks!
I love warm milk anyway, and adding some raw organic honey to it just made it even better. It really does help me go to sleep and it's so relaxing to sip on this as you are getting ready for bed. I swear to you, when I drink this before bed, I have some really interesting dreams... and can remember them so clearly in the morning! Thanks for sharing!!!
I was amazed! It really worked. I've been very stressed and having trouble sleeping (as in going to bed at 2am and waking up at 6am). I think it's important to note that if you're taking this to help you sleep, then do this along with something else relaxing such as a warm bath, reading, music, etc. The taste was very soothing. A light creamy sweet taste. I put the milk in a coffee mug with the honey (a bit more then the recipe calls for) and heated in the microwave for 1min. Do keep an eye on the milk in the microwave...as you do not..repeat...do not want to scald the milk. Just heat till warm. Mix the mixture with a spoon when you take it out (as the honey will be easier to blend into the milk then). It worked like a charm...fell asleep easily, woke up easily...and have felt stress free all day.
I made this for DH before he headed off to bed the other night (I also gave him a big rev up on how this WILL work and help him go off to sleep)Anyways....he did drift off to sleep much quicker than normal (Not sure if it was the warm milk or my "chat" :) )but he loved the flavour combo and he's had it everynight since. Thanks for sharing!
I gave this to 13 year old son when he was sick and he said it really soothed his sore throat. Thanks for the recipe.
I tried this last night as a last ditch effort to get some sleep. I have to give an important talk in church this morning and it was really important that I get a good night's sleep last night. Was falling asleep in my chair, but when I went up to bed, you guessed it.....awake as could be. I remembered seeing this recipe on here yesterday and came downstairs, made myself a cuppa and incredibly fell asleep shortly thereafter. Thanks so much!
