Perhaps the most famous lullaby of all time is ‘Wiegenlied Guten Abend, Gute Nacht,” otherwise known as Brahms’ Lullaby, published by German composer Johannes Brahms in 1868. It goes:
Lullaby and goodnight, with roses bedlight.
With lilies o’er spread, is baby’s wee head.
Lay thee down now, and rest, may thy slumber be blessed!
The song works wonders on children. Unfortunately, as we age, lullabies tend to lose their efficacy and no one will sing them to us! LOL
So what to do when the minutes stretch into hours as you lie staring at the ceiling? We have just the solution – a delectable caffeine-free tisane designed to ‘bless thy slumber’ sip after sip. Naturally caffeine-free, Lullaby blends a number of sleepy-time herbs to soothe the spirit and calm the mind. To ensure you sleep even more soundly, each of these are sourced from growers known for their environmental sensitivity, letting you rest assured the environment wasn’t harmed to facilitate your slumber. Don’t forget to turn the lights out!
