To promote relaxation in Rose City Blend we added the following three herbs:
Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata) is a perennial climbing vine with a sturdy woody stem that grows to a length of nearly 32 feet. It has been used for centuries to relieve muscle tension, lower blood pressure and to calm anxiety. It does so by increasing the levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter. This decreases the activity of nerve cells in the brain, causing relaxation. We use organic, dried passionflower leaves and stems for our “Relax” tea blend.
Oatstraw (Avena sativa) is still used today in Europe to strengthen constitutionally weak nervous systems. It also helps fight anxiety, panic attacks, and depression. Oat straw also has a high concentration of the trace mineral silica. Silica is very beneficial for your bones, hair, nails, and skin. We use organic, dried oatstraw stems and leaves for our “Relax” tea blend.
Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) is native to North America, but is now widely cultivated in Europe and other areas of the world. It has long been used as an effective therapy for anxiety, nervous tension, and convulsions. Because of its calming effects on the nervous and musculoskeletal system, it was considered at one time to be a remedy for rabies. This is how it got its folkloristic name “mad dog weed.” Skullcap is also know to “quiten the mind chatter”. Those racing thoughts that keep you from going to sleep. We use organic, dried Skullcap leaves, stems, and flowers for our “Rose City Blend” tea blend.
