Known as the ‘dream herb,’ the dried flowers and leaves of calea zacatechichi are used to promote lucid dreaming. Calea also helps its users to fall asleep, makes dreams more vivid, and increases feelings of restfulness after waking.
Wild lettuce, also called ‘opium lettuce,’ is a painkiller and sedative similar to poppy, but with no risk of addiction. Teas made with wild lettuce relieves pain, cures cough, helps with asthma, alleviates headache, and helps with insomnia. It’s traditionally brewed into a thick, sweet tea that’s made with lemon juice and sugar — both ingredients which help to mask the bitter taste.
