3 Milk Restorative Evening Drinks

Having a good bedtime routine can help with better sleep.A bedtime routine is almost essential in Ayurveda. Apart from doing some moon salutations to cool the system, I choose spiced milks to restore the nerve and aid full regeneration. It’s best to drink the milk about 2-3 hours after dinner and 1-2 hours before bedtime. You don’t want your digestion working hard while you’re trying to sleep. You can add ginger, cardamon or cinnamon any of these to make them a
little more digestible. Sometimes mixing ½ cow’s milk and ½ almond milk also makes for easier digestion. Experiment with home made coconut milk to calm pitta.

Cooling and resting drink.
If you have a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep because of excess heat or an agitated/irritated mind, pitta is in scene.
  • ½ tsp shatavari root
  • Handful of organic rose petals (fresh or dry)
  • 1/2 coconut syrup. 
Ground and relax.
 This drink is indicate for Vatta constitutions.
Nerve rejuvenation drink.
Taking herbs at night or before bedtime has a direct affinity to working on the mind, as the night hours are those that target the nervous system and brain directly.

  • ½ tsp Ashwanghanda 
  • ½ tsp Brahmi
