Herbs for Relaxation

As we approach the holidays, with all the preparations and decorations, an elevated stress level can seem to be an inevitable component of the season. Here are some herbs recommended for relaxation from our herbalist, Karta Purkh Singh Khalsa:

Lavender flower has been used for centuries to provide a calming effect and improve mood. Lavender flower belongs to the Mint family of plants, which includes many herbs such as sage, thyme, rosemary, savory and oregano. It is often referred to as English Lavender Flower because it formed the basis of England’s lavender oil industry in the 18th century. Lavender is a beautiful, delightfully fragrant herb, and is used in several Yogi teas, including Bedtime, Honey Lavender Stress Relief and Calming. *

Kava root, an herb found in the South Sea Islands, has been shown to have soothing and calming effects. Used for centuries in the South Pacific as a relaxing herbal beverage, this mild, effective herb can help with daily tension and can also help to support sleep at bedtime. Here at Yogi, we use it in our Kava Stress Relief tea. *

Valerian root has been used as a relaxing herb since the times of Ancient Greece, and in the sixteenth century, its fragrant flowers were used as perfume. Today, valerian root is considered to be an herb that promotes relaxation and is widely used in Europe because of its calming effect. Valerian works best when taken right at bedtime to calm the mind to promote sleep, and it can be found in Yogi Bedtime tea. *

California poppy, an American wildflower, is also an herbal relaxant. It is one of the most beautiful and distinctive American wildflowers, and you will find it growing abundantly throughout the lower altitudes of California, southeastern Oregon, Nevada, and Arizona. Here at Yogi, it is an active ingredient in our Soothing Caramel Bedtime tea.*

    I have been drinking Yogi Ginger Tea love the product. Lately at least 3 out a box of 16 tea bags have been breaking apart. I have been drinking tea for years. I am just disappointed that this keeps happening due to the fact that your tea is not cheap. What would you recommend so this does not keep happening.

    Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
