Soak it up: Stress is exhausting and lavender, chamomile, lemon balm and passion flower are all herbs that can increase your energy by helping you relax and get more sleep. You can take any of these as a tea or a tincture any time you feel tense, or before bedtime to help you sleep. A soothing herbal bath can also aid sleep. Try adding lavender, rosemary or lemon to the water and let the soothing vapours relax and calm you.
Note: Remember, herbs are generally safe, but caution should always be taken when you ingest them. To be on the safe side, if you are pregnant or hoping to be, suffer from allergies, are on medication or have a pre-existing medical condition like high blood pressure or diabetes, you should not use any herbs without consulting a qualified practitioner your doctor first.
