Adrenal Support Tincture 

Adrenal tincture we made this year

Stress can be debilitating, anyone with anxiety will tell you this. While people deal with stressors in different ways, our bodies all react quite similarly. You may have heard talk of Adrenals, or seen adrenal support tinctures or concoctions for supporting a healthy stress response. This is because your adrenals, which are glands located above each kidney, control specific hormone production. One of these hormones is called cortisol and is increased as your body’s response to a stressful environment (3).

Your Body's Stress Response

When you are faced with a stressful situation, your body can’t distinguish the threat of financial insecurity from being chased by a bear and creates the same internal environment. This response is supposed to be relatively quick, increasing your blood pressure, making you more alert so you can get out of a mortally perilous situation and then go back about your day. When we worry about things, that cortisol level rises.

When we are chronically worried/anxious, cortisol is in our system for a longer time than necessary and can lead to a bulk of health issues. These include a weakened immune system, digestive issues, heart disease, insomnia, depression, skin irritation and many more (4). This is why it’s incredibly important to have certain strategies in place to help reduce stress in our daily lives. 



Tea Blends and Herbal Remedies for Stress

In our present time, I’m sure that everyone is dealing with their own different stressors and maneuvering around obstacles that wouldn’t have existed a month ago. Stress-relieving teas or tinctures are a great ally to have on hand right now. Lavender, Chamomile, Calendula, Motherwort, Rose, Rosemary, and St. John's wort, are all great herbs for relieving stress and tension in the body. Gail Edwards writes that nettles is invaluable at "restoring adrenal function" (1), so if you suffer from chronic stress, a nettle tincture would be a must-have.
