I used to take these lavender pills that a friend recommended to me, but they apparently got discontinued because they cause burping that tastes like lavender.....which isn't actually all that bad! Anyways, in my search for these pills at Whole Foods one day, I came across this product: Herb Pharm Whole Lavender Extract. This is literally just organic whole lavender flower, certified organic cane alcohol, and distilled water.
The instructions state that you should put one full squeeze into 2 ounces of water or juice, but what I like to do is to put two full squeezes with either half or a full lemon juiced to make lavender lemonade! This is seriously the most amazing morning treat --- the lemon kickstarts your metabolism, and the lavender balances you out so you stay calm as you begin your day.
This has truly helped me get out of bed in the morning and look forward to my day. Not only is it yummy, but lavender is a proven stress reliever, and when I am on-the-go, I can't just whip out my essential oils and whiff away haha. So this is the next best thing. Drinking the lavender this way makes me feel good inside, and I truly believe that there are natural ways to help treat stress and anxiety.
Anyways, I hope you guys check this out and let me know if it has helped you in any way!
What do you do to relieve stress? Have any special tips or tricks?
