Natural Stress Relief: Herbs for Anxiety, Headaches and More
From pain-fighting feverfew to lulling lemon balm, you can ease aches, unwind and lift your spirits — naturally! — with these herbal remedies for stress relief.
A balcony, a patio, a windowsill — herbs to stock your own natural pharmacy can flourish just about anywhere, and “Homegrown Remedies” will show you how to grow dozens of nourishing plants (even with limited space) and turn them into infusions, tinctures, syrups, decoctions, poultices and other preparations that can relieve, refresh and heal. You’ll learn how to make herbal remedies to knock out a fever, settle an upset stomach, soothe achy muscles, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and much more.
Lemon balm earned the moniker “scholar’s herb” because it calms anxiety while also promoting memory and concentration. Use this helpful herb fresh or dried.
