Herbal Tea Blend for Moodiness and Anxiety

Jump to Recipe

There are moments when we feel completely overwhelmed by anxiety, frustration, and moodiness, regardless of how hard we try to keep ourselves balanced. While these moments will pass on their own eventually, I designed this tea blend to help ease us out of our discomfort in a gentle yet quick way. I combined cooling nervines with a powerful adaptogen and a hormone balancing herb to help reduce stress over time as well as in the moment. This tea may be a good fit for you if you find yourself on edge, irritable, and moody, especially if hormones are playing a part. I created it for one of my siblings just starting to go through puberty to help her feel more in control of her emotions and capable of steadying herself even in times of intense frustration. She has reported back that it does help, and she enjoys the taste! I encourage you to research these herbs individually before trying the blend to get a sense of what you can expect from it, and to further connect to them. Let me know what you think of this blend and how you would prepare it for yourself!
