A Hot Bath
Create a bedtime schedule that includes a hot bath or shower. Take it about two hours before lying down. Add a couple drops of essential oils such as chamomile, rosemary, lavender, or lemon to the water for a more efficient experience. It will soothe your nerves and help you calm down; it's a simple step to add to your at-home remedies for insomnia.

Tart Cherry Juice
An excellent source of tryptophan, tart cherry juice is a natural sleep aid. The amino acid transforms to serotonin, which in turn converts to melatonin. Serotonin helps regulate your sleep cycles. Melatonin can lower your body temperature and lead to drowsiness. Indulge in a half cup (up to one cup) of tart cherry juice and allow yourself to drift off to sleep.

Chamomile Tea
Tea, in general, is an at-home remedy for several health ailments. Chamomile tea has been related to treating sleeping problems for centuries. A compound known as apigenin in chamomile might be the key to the natural drowsiness.
