Stress Herbs that will aid in releasing stress.

Some of my favorite herbs when feeling unbalanced:

  • Ashwagandha - Improves vitality and aides in reducing anxiety and tension. Ashwagandha is also useful for chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis. It is useful for anemia because of the herb's high iron content. It can also help with stabilizing your mood, strengthening your physical and mental performance as well as aiding in better sleep.

  • Ginseng - Helps build stamina, maintaining vitality. The adaptogenic properties ginseng has will help with mental and emotional stress. It also aides in increasing immune function as well as detoxifying the liver.

  • Lemon balm - Helps strengthen the brain memory along with aiding anxiety and depression. Lemon balm helps uplift your mood and can calm the central nervous system. It aides in digestion issues such as indigestion, acidity that causes acid reflux, nausea and bloating.

The Healing Power of Essential Oils

Herbs and oils that help release stress

Using an oil diffuser in your home and office helps release stress in the body and nervous system. Some essential oils I love to use are:

  • Eucalyptus - Helps with regulating the breath, aiding the lungs. Eucalyptus is a very soothing essential oil which can be used in showers to open up the respiratory system.

  • Peppermint - Aides in digestion. Gut health is the key to a healthy functioning body. Peppermint increases the flow of digestive juices and bile, relieving the gut muscles. Peppermint also helps to ease headaches, Use a dab of oil on your temples and massage for 60 seconds.

  • Rosemary - Is a restorative herb, helping recover from long term stress and chronic illnesses. Rosemary stimulates the adrenal glands. This herb is strictly used for debility, helping cure poor circulation and digestion. The aromatic smells of Rosemary will raise your vibration helping heal the spirit and mental well-being.

  • Lavender - Helps relieve anxiety aiding the nervous system. Lavender is well known for its soothing effect assisting with sleeplessness. Massaging a few drops on the temples eases headaches. Using Lavender in your bath helps relax muscle tension and tones the nervous system, encouraging sleep.

Stress is something we can control. Walk with intention and purpose with all that you do. You are in control of the being you're reserving. Be kind to yourself, Speak life unto yourself daily. This healing journey is ongoing, We are all in this together.
