Approximately 8-10 servings per ounce.
German Chamomile (Matricaria recutita)
Just as a hot cup of chamomile tea calmed Peter Rabbit's nerves, it’s had the same effect on children for centuries. In Mexico, it is called "manzanilla" which means “little apple" because of its apple-like scent. In certain parts of Mexico, there is a tradition of giving children their first bath in diluted chamomile tea. This is as beautiful as it is fitting because chamomile is one of the best nervines available for children.
Catnip (Nepeta cataria)
Catnip is a very gentle sedative that safely helps children sleep. It’s an antispasmodic and carminative herb, so it relieves abdominal discomfort such as gas, bloating and muscle spasms that can interfere with falling and staying asleep.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
Can you count the number of children’s products that contain lavender? It's not likely because when it comes to relaxing little muscles and minds, lavender is at the top of the class. It is used for restlessness, insomnia, nervousness and depression. It also helps alleviate a variety of digestive issues.
Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis)
In Greek, the word Melissa means "honeybee,” and it is rubbed on beehives to attract bees and encourage them to stay together. Lemon balm has been used for centuries to support children’s sleep. As an added benefit, it is antiviral so it provides immune support.
Linden (Tilia cordata)
Linden is simply delicious! Its sweet smell and flavor are calming to the body and mind. Linden is a relaxing nervine that soothes irritability and assists with hyperactivity, muscle tension and emotional imbalances.
