Herbal Tea and Essential Oil Blends for Soothing and Calming Worry and Anxiety

Everyone to some extent suffers from worry and anxiety.  Sometimes it is perfectly natural, like when you are waiting to see if you got into college or if you are going to ask someone to marry you.  But for a lot of people, chronic worrying and anxiety is a chaotic and destabilizing part of everyday life.  I want to stress that anxiety and panic attacks are a real, honest to Goddess medical condition and that you are not alone.  40 million adults age 18 or older in the United States suffer from anxiety, including yours truly.  If you suspect that you suffer from this condition, please see a doctor or medical practitioner and implement a rigorous self care routine.

Magical Herbs for Fall and Winter

At least in New England, it is boots and overcoats weather as the last of the leaves fall on the sidewalk.  Peppermint mochas have taken over pumpkin spice lattes.  The nights are lengthening, and the daylight is becoming more precious.  It’s the time of year to begin working with some seasonal plants and herbs in your magical practice.  Some of these can be found in your backyard or in the local park.  And the rest are easily obtained at the grocery store, at Mountain Rose Herbs, or local nursery.

Simple Herbal Tea Blend for Good Physical, Mental, and Emotional Health

So a few months ago, I bulk ordered herbal tea bags from Traditional Medicinal.  And by bulk I mean it was a buy-a-box-get-a-box sale, so I ended up with like 36 boxes of tea bags. I bought a wide variety, but after I got sick of drinking simple nettle and peppermint teas.  So I borrowed a teapot from my mother and started making large pots of herbal tea.  This one has become my favorite for its health benefits and magical correspondences.
