Chamomile ( Matricaria recutita) is excellent for calming the nerves. It’s also good for nausea brought on by anxiety or stress. • Make a tea by infusing 3g of whole dried flower heads three to four times daily.
Other calming herbs include lemon balm ( Melissa officinalis) and lavender ( Lavandula angustifolia). Combine or use individually. • Use 1-2 teaspoons of fresh lemon balm leaves, and drink up to 3 times a day. • For lavender, infuse ½ teaspoon of dried flowers and drink up to three times a day. Save the third cup to drink just before going to bed.
