Keeping a portion of the root of the Swhet Gunja [Abrus precatorius] plant near the pillow of the Insomniac at bedtime is said to enable sound sleep and remove insomnia. The Gunja plant parts are widely used in Indian Tantra experiments and in traditional Indian medicine. The Swhet gunja or Safeed Gunja is the white coloured variety of the Gunja plant.
Applying the paste of the root of the Mucuna Pruriens plant, (commonly called Velvet Bean plant or Konch in Hindi) on the forehead of the Insomniac is said to enable him/her to sleep soundly. The Konch plant part are widely used in traditional medicine, including Ayurveda, mostly as an herbal aphrodisiac to treat sexual dysfunction such as low sex drive and impotency.
Or perhaps you may fill a copper utensil with water and another utensil with kosher salt, (Kala Namak in Hindi) is placed over it. A Camphor Tablet is then placed in-between the salt, and lit. This remedy is said to remove insomnia.
