Anxiety Remedies

Herbal Anxiety Remedies

Natural herbal anxiety remedies: Some people may find that Pharmaceuticals do not fit into their lifestyle so they seek alternatives that make them comfortable. Herbal anxiety remedies have been used for centuries to combat anxiety symptoms and help bring calm into people’s lives. I hope they can do the same for you.

People often implement cures for stress and anxiety into their daily lives without even realizing it. For example, I drink Chamomile tea every night and love that it provides such a relaxing and calming effect before I go to bed. It’s such a nice way to unwind after a day of stress. Sometimes I also drink Peppermint tea as it can relieve tension and soothe an upset stomach.

There are other herbal anxiety remedies that will help you to bring calm into your life…


Some mornings before I go to work, I visit my local convenience store which is owned by a lovely Chinese couple. As I go to pay for my purchase, after a lovely chat, I always pick up a little vile extract of Ginsing to give me some energy before I start my work day. Ginseng is a fantastic herb that can be found in many energy drinks, teas and foods. Ginseng is most well known for its power to reduce stress and bring relaxation. The couple who own the store have been using it for years to enhance their overall health. From the looks of their happy outlook on life, I trust their judgment.


When I was first prescribed a solution to my panic attacks by my Doctor, I was advised to take benzodiazepines. After doing some research and talking to friends, I was concerned about the addictive nature of some of these drugs. Naturally, I looked for alternatives. After doing a research study, I discovered that Passionflower was as effective as some of the benzodiazepines on the market to relieve my symptoms (ie. Lorazepam). I was happy with results I received from Passionflower . It can be found in a number of teas and extracts.

St John’s Wort:

St. John’s Wort is often used to help with mild anxiety and depression. This remedy can be taken as a capsule or in tea form. I tried this remedy a few years ago, but experienced some stomach problems due to my sensitive digestive system. However, I have heard from others that it has been a ‘lifesaver.’ Please remember that results can vary amongst individuals.


Lavender is frequently used as an essential aromatherapy oil to quiet your nerves and create a state of calm. It can be inhaled, burned in candles, or placed on pressure points on your body such as the inside of your wrists. Lavender can also be added to a bath. This is one of my person favorites. I love the smell!


Valerian has most recently been used as an anti-anxiety medication. Traditionally it has been used as a sleep-aid. It can also be used as a sedative or tranquilizer. It’s most often consumed in capsules, teas or tablets. It can be found in most health food stores.

Kava Kava.:

Kava Kava can be used to treat milder-to-moderate forms of anxiety. It is also helpful for insomnia and menopausal symptoms. This herbal remedy must be taken with caution however, as it had been known to cause damage to those with liver problems. Please consult a professional before taking this remedy. Kava Kava can be found in beverages, capsules, tablets, extracts and topical solutions.

Please Remember:

If you are taking any prescribed medications for your anxiety or stress, you must consult with your Doctor to ensure that you are being safe. Some of these remedies have been known to react negatively with pharmaceuticals. While herbal anxiety remedies have fewer side effects, it is always important to protect yourself from any harm.
When it comes to finding freedom and calm in your life….please make the best decision that works for you.
