    I find peppermint to be stimulating and not relaxing.. I would check at the healthfood store for pure melatonin tabs.. sublingual works faster... it doesn't make you sleepy like a sleeping pill or narcotic... it just settles you down enought that when you close your eyes you can drift off... Good Luck
