We already use herbs in cooking and teas, like parsley, mint and cilantro. Using herbal tinctures means you can get the benefits of herbs on the go.
Sara-Chana has herbal recommendations for those who need a bit of a boost.
- Mild depression: Rhodiola is an adaptogen that helps the body adapt to life stresses.
- Anxiety: Passionflower and valerian may ease anxiety. Kava is often used for tense muscles. Blue vervain lessens cortisol levels from panic attacks.
- Insomnia: Lemon balm or passionflower at dinner can help with insomnia. Dose once or twice more before bed.
- Stress: Skullcap may help calm back-to-school nerves without grogginess. Linden is calming and aids digestion. Catnip is soothing after school.
As a bonus tip, Sara-Chana recommends lowering cortisol through random acts of kindness. They help you control your mood and don’t cost a thing.
