To be honest, anything active in chamomile, passion flower etc is not effective enough to be worth talking about (St Johns Wort is an exception, as mentioned). Generally if you're struggling with insomnia, the answer isn't to add another thing that causes sleep, it's to address what's causing the trouble sleeping.
With that said, kratom is still available online in the UK, from UK-based sellers. The Police apparently can't be fucked to arrest them, but I wouldn't count on that state of affairs continuing forever. I did not find it helped with sleep, quite the opposite.
Avoid anything with caffeine in the evenings, the advice is six+ hours before sleep.
Similarly, avoid sources of sugar (despite their marketing, Ovaltine and Horlicks are objectively a bad idea before bed) or anything else high in calories. Chocolate is doubly bad as it contains a reasonable amount of caffeine too. Eat early in the evening, don't have big meals before bed.
If you absolutely, 100%, life-or-death must sleep (for instance, at the end of three days awake, when your sleeplessness-induced paranoia and self-loathing is at "cruel and unusual human rights violation" levels), try Doxylamine Succinate. It's legal, though god knows I only need half of a 25mg pill to knock me right the fuck out. I probably don't need to warn not to use it every night, because you'll wake up feeling like you're emerging from the bleary mists of a coma.
