Improve your sleep with a cup of Moon Milk

Moon Milk is a warm drink that has long been used as a remedy for sleeplessness. Made from a mix of spices, honey and milk, the drink is derived from the ancient practice of Ayuverdic, a form of holistic medicine originating more than 3,000 years ago. Studies have shown that the Ayuverdic spices used in the drink, especially ashwagandha, help to improve sleep quality and lower stress levels. Warming, calming and sleep-aiding; moon milk is exactly what you need at the end of a long day.

The recipe (from Bon Appetit)

  • 1 cup whole milk or unsweetened nut milk
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp ground ashwagandha
  • 2 pinches of ground cardamom
  • Pinch of ground ginger
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp virgin coconut oil
  • 1 tsp honey

Bring milk to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in cinnamon, turmeric, ashwagandha, cardamom, ginger, and nutmeg; season with pepper. Whisk vigorously to incorporate any clumps. Add coconut oil, reduce heat to low, and continue to cook until warmed through, 5–10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Stir in honey. Pour into a mug, drink warm, and climb right into bed.

Stir up a scarily good night’s sleep this Halloween. Make yourself some Moon Milk before bed and tag us in a photo on Instagram using @silentnightbeds or #MySilentnight.

60 night comfort exchange

Our comfort exchange gives you 60 nights to get really comfortable before making a decision. If you're still not loving your new mattress within 60 nights from delivery, you can exchange it for another mattress. It's as simple as that.

Here's how it works:

  1. Pick your new mattress on the official Silentnight website
  2. Sleep on it for at least 28 nights as it can take a little time to adjust to a new mattress
  3. If you're not happy after the initial 28 nights you can exchange it for a new mattress, as long as you claim within 60 nights of delivery
