Herbs for a Stress-Free Christmas

The holidays are all about giving, family and cheer, but we are all familiar with the anxiety that can come along with the season. From difficult relatives to budgets, there are many stress triggers sprinkled throughout the merrymaking.

Every Christmas shopping list should include some relaxing herbs and supplements to combat stress. Ashwagandha by Gaia Herbs is known for its ability to support the adrenals and stress response. It also promotes a healthy immune system. Stresscare by Himalaya is another helpful holiday blend, featuring ayurvedic herbs that promote energy while lowering stress.

For those of us that cannot stop checking our lists at night, Life-Seasons Rest-ZZZ features an herbal blend that contains GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) to help turn off busy brains; melatonin to help fall asleep; and a blend of valerian, passion flower and chamomile to help stay asleep. Natural Vitality Calm for Kids can help kids get restful sleep during the holiday season and Calm by Vital Planet helps our four-legged family members relax during the bustling December schedule.
