Not a fan of warm milk before bedtime? For gentle help getting to sleep, try nutmeg, which can work as a sedative. Grate a tablespoon of whole nutmeg, and steep it in a half-cup of just-boiled water for 10 minutes. Strain, if you’d like, or let the solids settle on the bottom. Drink this tea 30 minutes before bedtime.
