MAG­NO­LIA & OTHER MOOD-LIFT­ING HERBS

Amazing Wellness - - GO AROMATHERAPY -

Sev­eral herbs can help re­duce de­pres­sion and anx­i­ety symp­toms re­lated to stress, in­clud­ing pas­sion­flower, le­mon balm, va­le­rian, and laven­der. I am par­tic­u­larly fond of hon­okiol, a com­pound from mag­no­lia bark (Mag­no­lia of­fic­i­nalis), used for cen­turies in tra­di­tional Chi­nese medicine to pro­mote re­lax­ation and healthy di­ges­tion. Hon­okiol has been shown to cross the blood-brain bar­rier for di­rect ef­fects on the cen­tral ner­vous sys­tem.

Cinnamon is good for the tummy, sooth­ing dis­com­fort and im­prov­ing di­ges­tion. It also has a pos­i­tive im­pact on blood sugar, help­ing pre­vent the peaks and val­leys that are so bad for our men­tal state.
