Insomnia is a horrible affliction, any many suffer in silence, eventually hoping the sleepless nights will ebb.

I've been suffering with insomnia for the past two weeks, so I decided I needed a more practical solution, than a ritual before bed, which unfortunately didn't work. I bought the tincture from health food store Eighth Day on Oxford road. At 11.00 it seemed a snip to get rid of the bags under my eyes and sleeplessness.

I've always been wary of drugs and sleeping pills, so I carried out some research about Valerian root, before knocking myself out. Valerian is a hardy perrenial flowering plant. Valerian root has sedative and anxiolytic effects. It can also be classified as a drug, since its consumption produces a sedative effect.

As easy going and natural as it sounds, you must be careful with the doses. I wouldn't say I'm a light sleeper, but I've really been struggling, but I've never tried this tincture before, so I thought I'd stick to the dosage of one teaspoon before bed.

It was incredibly bitter, tastes like wood. Some take it in water, but I took it straight - a spoonful in my mouth. No matter how severe your insomnia is, do not take more than the recommended dosage - one teaspoon full and half an hour later I was out for the count.

I couldn't believe the effects. I had the most sound sleep, and woke up, naturally around 7.30am on a Saturday morning. It was quite wonderful.

Since enjoying the most restful sleep I've had in a long time, I decided to take the tincture again the following night, but stopped after that. It certainly isn't addictive not only due to the rancid taste, but I seemed to naturally fall asleep at the right time, and wake as I needed to.

The tincture was just what I needed: a helping hand. If you're suffering with severe insomnia, see your local GP, otherwise I couldn't speak more highly of this wonder tincture.

Find it in Eighth Day, as well as on Amazon
