I stared using this recipe as a nightly routine and it works GREAT. I love it and use every night. ALSO: If you use honey from your local market...then it helps ease allergies. I've been waiting to try it on my daughter since I found out this tip before she turned one, and now that she's one...I feel as though it has helped a lot. Her nose isn't as runny as it usually is....So remember: LOCAL HONEY. :]. and enjoy.

I have made this for three nights, for myself, it has a great flavor but was to sweet for me so I use only 1 TBS of honey. It is very nice to sip this just before I go to bed.

I made this for myself as I battle with insomnia. It was great. I loved the sweet milk. It really helped to relax me. It is such a great combination to soothe one into sleep. Milk contains two substances that are known to be related to sleep and relaxation, the hormone melatonin and the amino acid tryptophan - the same thing in turkey that makes us want a nap on Thanskgiving day. Combined with the Chamomile tea, my insomnia didn't stand a chance! :) Made and Reviewed for Comfort Cafe - Vitameatavegamin - Thanks! :)
