Herbal Remedy for Indigestion:
You can try these types of herbs singly or in combination with each other to suit your taste.

*But, if your indigestion develops into any vomiting, or abdominal pains, seek your doctor.

Herbal Remedy for Insomnia:
Within an hour before bed, drink a tea made of lemon bam, passion flower, chamomile, elderflower, or even bergamot. Do not use this for long periods of time� For example do not use more than three weeks at an everyday rate. If you do use it for that long of a stretch stop it for one week before resuming.

Mixtures for a Healthy Body: A Soothing Bath
If you just want to relax then I suggest a soothing bath with the following herbs: Put 1 cup of fresh or dried herbs into a 6-7 inch lace bag or you can put the herbs in the center of a washcloth and tie off with a rubber band. In the mixture it should include oatmeal, sage, rosemary, chamomile, and lavender. This should be soaking in your bath along with fresh rose petals sprinkled on the top of the water. The heat from the water will draw out all relaxing and medicinal properties of all of these herbs. For full effect shut off all electricity going to that bathroom and light some aromatherapy candles. Let your body fully relax and enjoy the scents of nature as they surround you.
