About 9 months ago I stumbled upon a new chocolatier in my neighborhood. If you have never had ‘Drinking Chocolate’ I really recommend it! It is not like hot chocolate but creamy chocolate heaven in a sip. This new place, The Chocolate Laboratory, sells it and much more!
One of the items the chocolatier, Kian, makes is sleep butter. He initially developed it as a dreaming potion and sold it with a dream journal. Then he got feedback from his customer that it was helping them sleep.
Made from cashews, cardamom, coconut sugar, mugwort, kava, valerian and melatonin, the dosage is about a ¼ teaspoon! It tastes delicious. I am a devotee and have turned my sister; cousin and numerous friends into sleep butter fans.
What it does for me is that when I wake up I can more easily fall back to sleep. So when my bladder wakes me up around 3 AM I seem to be able to fall back asleep, no longer staring at the clock, or ceiling! I do not find any side effects except a better night’s sleep!
The taste is delicious. The cost is $25.00 and I take it almost every night and the jar lasts me about 2-3 months!
Besides the Sleep Butter, Kian and his wife Ayomide make beautiful extraordinary chocolates and Hormone balancing chocolates. Flavors are added that are not found in other chocolates. It is very difficult to not want to try one of everything! I
If you come to Portland, come to the Sellwood neighborhood with your sweet tooth for sipping chocolate and chocolates and buy some Sleep Butter!
Have you ever heard of anything more delicious than Sleep Butter for help with Sleep?
I was not paid or anyway reimbursed for this post. I just wish better sleep for everyone. With my sleepwear line and some Sleep Butter, a better night’s sleep is just a click away!
