To Relax And Fall Asleep
Herbalists recommend that herbal teas labeled ‘relaxing’ should be consumed during the day when one is stressed, overwhelmed, or nervous. There are other herbs like lavender, chamomile, and lemon balm that helps in calming the nervous system and the digestive system. Chamomile tea is commonly used for calming anxiety. Lavender is widely used in the form of essential oil and it helps reduce emotional stress, improves sleep and alleviates headaches. Blue lotus and passionflower decompress the nervous system and relax the mind. Blue lotus is used as a sleep aid and as a natural anti-anxiety remedy that soothes the entire nervous system. Passionflower calms the mind as it boosts the level of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) which lowers brain activity and helps to fall asleep.
