Ever get that feeling of uneasiness, tension, sweating, restlessness out of nowhere? Do you need something easy to add to your daily routine?

Trying new things to help ease anxiety can be anxiety filled as it is because you don’t know how it will affect your body or if it will actually work!

Various herbal and true teas can help ease your anxiety in the moment or over a course of time if drunk daily. 

Please note that everybody is different so not every herbal remedy will do the “trick”. It may take time to find that one go-to herbal drink that really works for you but in the end it will be worth the wait! 

Lavender

Lavender is what pops into most people’s minds when they think of getting a good night’s sleep. At least that is what pops into our minds. 

It is used in various calming products, from hand cream, to body wash, and to face wash. 

Even just the smell of lavender will help relax and ease the mind.

Rose

Rose tea is one of our favorite drinks for relaxation.  Not only does this tea help with menstruation issues it also helps relax the body as a whole. 

It is considered to have analgesic properties. Analgesic meaning pain reliever. 

Chamomile

Chamomile is a very relaxing tea.We usually enjoy it at the end of a stressful day. If you have a more sweet tooth try adding a little honey.

This is also another great tea to help with any type of cramping whether it’d be from menstruation or backed up poop. 

Peppermint Tea 

This aromatic tea is a natural relaxant. The menthol in the peppermint plant is a natural muscle relaxant. 

Since peppermint is a natural muscle relaxant it may help put the body at ease before bedtime.

Matcha

Matcha tea is also a drink to relax the nerves. This tea, if consumed on a regular basis, can help ease everyday stress and anxiety. 

According to Webmd.com, Matcha contains the very important amino acid l-theanine which is a component in the body that helps relieve anxiety, stress, and depression. 

CatNip 

Yes, that’s right we put catnip on the list! This plant makes cats hyper (if inhaled or if the cat rubs on the actual plant). 

When consumed by humans it has the opposite effect causing the body to become calm. It has been used by herbalists for centuries.  

Conclusion

We hope our list of teas helps you relax and lower your anxiety. These are just a few that we regularly consume and find interesting.
