All You Need is Honey and Himalayan Salt to Sleep Like a Baby

Himalayan Salt Sleep Aid


Having a hard time sleeping at night?

For the past 4 years I have had a very hard time sleeping at night. I run all day, and am exhausted when bed time rolls around. When I finally get to go to bed, I lay there for hours and struggle to fall asleep.

I even turned to sleeping pills. I know that is not the best choice, but I was exhausted and nothing else was working! I would even take them 5 nights a week.

About 2 week ago, as I was scrolling through my Facebook feed I saw a post about honey and Himalayan salt helping people sleep. I thought, "what do I have to lose?"

I mixed the honey and salt in a small airtight container and put it on my night stand. That night I took a teaspoon of the mixture (not the best tasting), and like every night, started watching a show with my husband. I didn’t make it to the end of the show! I woke up the next morning feeling better than I had in years. I continued this every night that week and I was able to fall asleep quickly, and awoke feeling great!

Here is why it works

Himalayan salt contains more than 80 minerals and elements that your body needs for different processes, such as aiding your body in recovering from the day. Honey contains glucose which aids in supplying our body’s cells with energy.

This salt and honey combination works to increase serotonin, helping you to destress, naturally allowing you to get the best sleep possible. So enjoy this natural sleep aid, and rest easy knowing your body will be ready to face the day.

Ingredients for Natural Sleep Aid

5 teaspoons of organic raw honey
1 teaspoon of pink Himalayan sea salt

Mix these two ingredients together and store it in a glass jar. You can make as much or as little as you want, but a 5:1 ratio works the best as I have it above. Just put a little bit of this mixture under your tongue every night before you go to sleep and let it dissolve naturally. Read the original article here.

 Sleep Gummies

I also found a recipe for sleep gummies! I made them, and they work great too.

1 cup tart cherry juice
1 cup pomegranate juice
½ cup gelatin powder
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon Himalayan salt

In a small pan slowly mix the gelatin powder into juice. Add in the honey.
Turn the heat to low and stir as it warms. Stir for 2-3 minutes or until mixture is smooth and gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat and add salt. Pour into silicon molds, or glass pan coated with coconut oil. Put in fridge for about 2 hours to set. Store in fridge for up to 2 weeks.

    7 pellets of H.S. dissolved in 1/4 hot water a half hour before bedtime will help bring sleep pressure. Sugars/honey keep us awake. Wondering if those who have low blood pressure or low sodium in blood have more problems sleeping? Seems to me that people with good or a little high blood pressure sleep better. I also take a half teaspoon of baking soda and a 1/4 teas of org. ginger in a half cup of warm water. It helps because soda contains magnesium. Valerian gives me headache the next day, so does the combo melatonin/magnesium capsule if I take it 2 nights in a row.

    Dear Hailey, I think I can clarify, the 1tbsp was the entire recipe, 5:1, kindly notice the portion of the article “little bit under the tongue” definitely several portions! Thanks, just clarifying,
    -Sleep Well, God Bless All!

    Thank you so much for this information. I have to say I have been trying everything for insomnia for some time, but this is my favorite, sea salt and honey. My mistake is waiting until staying awake until near morning, 4:38am now. I have mine on Ritz crackers and Hold on, coffee!! Most say no way, but this is how my system works. Forgot to add I put thin layer of coconut oil on the crackers, 6 of them. Well just had my “snack” and feeling sleepy, back to bed for at least the next 3,4 hours. Happy zzzzz!

    I can’t wait to try this thanks! But politely speaking, I might put a bit of friendly advice in for all those who are wondering about the salt intake. Even the recommended daily dose of the Himalaya variety of salt should be under 2300 mg (less than 1tsp)!!! This dosage is not really a viable plan for those with a history of cardiac disease or who eat ANY amount of salt through the day lol! (Which is most of us in the USA unfortunately.) Heart disease is fatal for 1 in 4 people, insomnia not so much ;) if you are looking for a natural approach to sleep, TURN THE TV OFF!!! It worked charms for us, although husband hated it at first, and now loves the silence! He now sleeps next to a low-emf essential oil diffuser and appreciates the low white noise. He now can also sleep when we go camping & his boss noticed a difference in his workmanship! Also, if the natural sleep aids only work the first couple times, try rotating them: valerian mostly, melatonin & liquid magnesium/Calc/D complex can help to switch it up. The liquid mag/c/d is amazing for runners insomnia & pregnancy insomnia, as it calms the muscles and heart rate and helps with aches, but will only have these desired sleepy side effects if taken on an empty stomach. Seems to be the case with most sleep aids: natural or pharma. Which leads to the last tip, try not to eat too close to bed time, this was my weakness oh boy, but it made a huge difference! A buffer of +2hrs prior to bed is my sweet spot. This might not help O.P. at all, but appreciate that you posted. Wishing all you sleepless a beautiful, full, and healthy nights’ rest! And thanks for this salt tip, I will try it out at a lower dose and try to report back if I can remember! Sweet dreams!
