Initially, pregnant women feel the need to sleep as much as they can; eventually, though, they cannot get asleep anymore. Or worse, when, after hours trying to fall asleep, tossing and turning in the bed, you finally manage to fall asleep, you have a horrible nightmare that doesn’t leave you to continue your precious night’s rest. Consequently, you start searching for a solution to your problem.

Its healing properties have been known since antique times as it treats insomnia, headaches and anxiety and helps the human body relax when drunk as tea.

Lemon grass is a medicinal herb used to cure flus, nasal congestion, anxiety and colds.

It appears as a main ingredient in the majority of the recipes that destined to cure insomnia or sleep issues. In normal quantities, it can help pregnant women sleep well and rest properly, whereas in large quantities, it may produce damage to your body, such as uterine contractions.

Let it rest for about 20 minutes, then serve the tea hot, with honey and a slice of lemon, as you wish. Unlike other herbal mixtures, this tea has a very delightful smell and taste, so you will definitely love it. Just make sure you do not exaggerate.
