It’s perfect for drinking before bed or any time during the day to help even the busiest person feel relaxed and feel present throughout their day. I also added herbs that support the GI system to increase absorption and soothe the digestive tract for those that struggle with bowel issues from nervous system tension.
Lemon balm has such a great flavor and a ton of benefits so it really brings every blend into complete synergistic harmony. Lemon balm is a naturally relaxing herb that has been known to aid the nervous system, improve sleep, reduce anxiety, and promote overall good moods. Lemon balm also promotes healthy liver function. It aides the liver in cholesterol synthesis and that protects the heart muscles from injuries.

Because of its calming effects, it helps to also calm the digestive system which is a hugely positive thing for those that struggle with digestive disturbances.
St. Johns Wort is one of the main herbs commonly used for supporting the nervous system. I chose it for this blend because it is unlike the other nervous system supportive herbs, it is one of the main herbs used for depression and has been known to work better than prescription antidepressants. It really helps boost and regulate the mood because it makes serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine more readily available.
Marshmallow root helps restore integrity of the gut lining, beneficial for inflammatory bowel diseases because of its anti-inflammatory properties, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. The mucilage properties of marshmallow help issues with acid reflux, stomach ulcers, and heart burn by providing a coating of the inside of the stomach. It’s one of the main herbs used in treating leaky gut. Marshmallow aids in breaking up mucus, reducing inflammation, and killing bacteria. It is very supportive to the kidneys and bladder because it can help increase urination to remove waste from the body and balance fluids. It's also full of antioxidants in the form of flavonoids. Marshmallow is also very supportive to the respiratory system to reduce pain and swelling with its anti inflammatory properties.
Dandelion root is my favorite herb and it’s in every one of my blends for a good reason. Dandelion is a super gentle herb, it’s safe for everyone including infants but it’s also a really powerful herb. It’s supportive for all the path ways of elimination. The skin, liver, kidneys, digestive system, and the lungs are all supported by dandelion. Dandelion is packed full of nutrients, both minerals and vitamins A, C and K. It’s a natural diuretic which encourages kidney elimination, prevents water retention, and also helps control blood pressure.
Slippery elm bark is one of the best herbs to support gut health. It’s very soothing to the GI staring from the mouth all the way through the digestive tract. slippery elm is one of the main herbs known to improve symptoms of constipation, IBD and IBS. It’s a mucilaginous which helps to sooth irritation because it allows the body to create a healthy mucus that protects against ulcers and excess acidity. It helps to strengthen the kidneys as well. It’s high in phenolics, antioxidants, has anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties. Slippery elm bark contains compounds called phenolics that are a kind of antioxidant that protect against pathogens and oxidative stress.
