This stress tincture uses powerful nervines (herbs that help strengthen and support the nervous system) to buffer and lessen the effects of stress, both in the moment and cumulatively over time.

Chamomile

Chamomile is one of my favorite calming herbs because of its subtle taste (at least as far as herbs go!) which makes it great for teas and tinctures. It’s also wonderful at soothing aches and ailments, whether stress related or not. Chamomile is a naturally calming herb that relaxes nerves and reduces pain. It has been known to settle the stomach and reduce gas as well as help injuries heal more quickly.

Lemon balm

Used as a medicinal herb for hundreds of years, lemon balm helps relieve anxiety, promote sleep and sooth agitation. Higher doses of lemon balm extract have been shown to relieve pain.

Valerian

A flowering herb native to Europe and parts of Asia, valerian is most commonly used for sleep disorders. It’s also used for anxiety and psychological stress because it seems to act like a sedative on the brain and nervous system.

CBD

Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is an extract made from hemp plants. The exact way CBD affects stress isn’t fully understood, however, it’s thought to alter serotonin signals in the brain, which in turn decrease anxiety and depression. The National Institute on Drug Abusesays that CBD has been shown to reduce stress and improve physiological symptoms of anxiety (like increased heart rate) in animal studies.

I chose each of these herbs based on their history of use, the research supporting their benefits, and my personal experience. But you’re not limited to just these. When it comes to herbs, you should do you own research and choose ones that work best with your body and health conditions.

Relaxation Tincture

 

author stephanie pollard

yield 4 ounces

Ingredients

  • 8 ounce glass jar with lid
  • 1/3 cup chamomile flowers, dried
  • 1/3 cup lemon balm, dried
  • 1/3 cup valerian root
  • approximately 1 to 1 1/2 cups vodka or rum
  • cheesecloth
  • 1 teaspoon CBD oil
  • two 2-ounce glass dropper bottles

Rather than using specific amounts, I typically use ratios of herbs so I can make as little or as much as I like. The measurements above are just approximations. If using the ratio method, fill your jar halfway with a 1:1:1 ratio of chamomile, lemon balm and valerian. Cover the rest of the way with alcohol.

Instructions

  1. Put dried chamomile flowers, lemon balm and valerian root in clean glass jar
  2. Fill the rest of the jar with vodka or rum (do not use rubbing alcohol or non-consumable alcohol!) and put the lid on.
  3. Store in a cool, dark cabinet for 4 - 6 weeks, shaking every couple of days. 
  4. After 4-6 weeks, pour the tincture through cheesecloth or strainer. Transfer the tincture to a dropper bottle and add your CBD oil.
  5. Shake well and place a dropperful under the tongue whenever you're feeling stressed.
