Wild Lettuce Relaxation Tea
Wild lettuce makes a soothing night time tea, and I use it most often in those times when arthritis or other aches and pains are preventing me from dropping off to sleep. Wild lettuce is not especially tasty but can be made palatable with the addition of a small amount of honey.
Wild lettuce tea used in moderation, 1 - 3 cups per day, does not produce unwanted side effects. Those seeking to misuse the herb to get high often consume large amounts that can lead to toxicity.
