I made one of those little eye pillows stuffed with lavendar & flax seeds.  It helps for sleep and headaches.

MELATONIN tablets work the best for me to help me get to sleep and to sleep through the night. Melatonin is made by your body naturally when your eyes notice the sun going down and the natural light darkening. Since we use artificial light these days, that's one of many reasons we don't get enough melatonin. There have been many studies that also show that Melatonin helps us to age slower. Once in a while, if I really have a hard time sleeping, I take Generic Benadryl. This is the ingredient in all the P.M. over the counter meds. (Like Tylenol PM, and why take the Tylenol, etc., if you only want to sleep) Benadryl works by shrinking the blood vessels in your brain, nose and to the placenta if your pregnant. So don't take it often as it can make you forgetful until you stop taking it (happened to my Ex) But in a pinch it works wonders. Also the less often you take Melatonin the better it works, you can develop a "tolerance" like you can to many meds. And some brands are far superior to others. Calcium works wonders also, I used only Calcium to help me sleep when I was pregnant. (Tums are made from Calcium)

I don't know what your friend gave you, but you might consult with a homeopath or go to a health food store. They may be able to suggest appropriate remedies, herbs, or supplements for you.

Hey all

several years ago while visiting a friend and being very tired , she put a couple drops of some kind of oil on my tounge and it "knocked me out" I slept well and this was very unusual because I rarely sleep well when I am very tired and on especially hard beds

I am not sure but I think she said it was lithium oil.
I want to get some more  
Can you help?
