Home Remedies for Night Sweats

Lightweight Bedding

Use moisture-wicking fabrics like bamboo or linen for bedding and pajamas to help regulate body temperature and absorb sweat.

Cool, Airy Sleeping Environment

Maintain a cool (around 65-70°F or 18-21°C) and well-ventilated sleeping environment. Use a fan or air conditioner to circulate air.

Sage Tea

Sage has properties that may reduce sweating. Drink 1 cup of sage tea before bedtime. Avoid excessive consumption and consult about interactions with medications.

Peppermint Tea

Cooling effect on the body. Drink 1 cup of peppermint tea in the evening. Avoid if you have acid reflux or are on homeopathic remedies.

Vitamin E Supplements

May help with hormonal balance. Take 400 IU of Vitamin E daily as recommended by a healthcare provider. Be cautious of higher doses.


Contains phytoestrogens. Add 1-2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed to your daily diet, such as in smoothies or yogurt. Start with a small quantity to assess tolerance.

Black Cohosh

Used for menopause-related symptoms. Take as directed, often around 20-40 mg twice daily, but consult a healthcare provider first.

Avoiding Spicy Foods

Spicy foods can increase body temperature. Limit intake, especially in the evening, to see if night sweats decrease.

Staying Hydrated

Drink plenty of water throughout the day, but reduce intake 1-2 hours before bed to minimize nighttime bathroom trips.

Relaxation Techniques

Meditation or deep breathing before bed can help relax the body. Practice for 10-15 minutes nightly.

Cotton Clothing

Wear loose, lightweight cotton pajamas to absorb sweat and keep cool.

Avoiding Caffeine and Alcohol

Both can exacerbate night sweats. Avoid these substances in the evening, ideally 3-4 hours before bedtime.

Regular Exercise

Moderate daily exercise can help, but avoid vigorous activities 2-3 hours before bedtime.

Evening Showers

Take a lukewarm or cool shower before bed to lower body temperature.

Bamboo Sheets

Use bamboo sheets which are breathable and moisture-wicking, aiding in temperature regulation during sleep.


Gentle yoga or stretching for 15-30 minutes in the evening can aid relaxation and potentially reduce night sweats.

Chilled Pillow

Use a pillow with cooling technology or a regular pillowcase over a chilled water-filled pillow to keep your head cool.

Magnesium Supplements

Magnesium helps with body temperature regulation. Take 200-400 mg of magnesium citrate or glycinate before bed, as advised by a doctor.


May help regulate body functions. Receive treatments 1-2 times a week from a licensed practitioner.

Controlled Breathing

Practice slow, deep breathing exercises for 5-10 minutes before bed to help calm the nervous system.
