- Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis): Lemon balm has a sedative action on the central nervous systems and is widely used to treat anxiety and insomnia in Europe. It reduces anxiety and stress and eases sleep disorders.
- Tulsi “Holy Basil” (Ocimum tenuiflorum): Tulsi is an adaptogen with hundreds of phytochemicals that work synergistically to promote the body’s natural defence mechanisms that ward off disease and stress. The leaves are an Ayurvedic herb, also called holy basil, and is native to India where it is valued as an energizing and tasty beverage tea that is served hot or cold. Recent studies have also shown that it’s also a powerful antioxidant and may even be able to reduce blood glucose levels and cholesterol.
- Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora): Skullcap is a premier nervine. It has a wonderful way of calming and centering the nervous system. Skullcap acts as a mild yet effective sedative and helps relieve nervous tension and anxiety. Skullcap can be taken over long periods to strengthen and reinvigorate the nervous system, making it more resilient and strong. It also can be taken in acute situations of extreme stress, such as panic attacks and trauma. The skullcap quickly brings the nervous system back to homeostasis and calm in these situations.
- Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla): Chamomile has a soothing and mildly sedative effect that helps us to relax after or even during a hectic day or as an aid for a good night’s sleep. It is a tasty nervine that has a calming effect on both the nervous and digestive systems. It makes a delicious tea and brings a sense of well-being.
