INGREDIENTS FULL DESCRIPTION
This popular herb (Piper methysticum) comes to us from the islands of Polynesia, where it has long been a favorite social beverage that reliably promotes mental and physical relaxation. Kava’s famous calming effects have been studied extensively for switching off those wound-up thoughts that just won’t quit. Scientific research has identified a group of constituents called kavalactones which are key to this herb’s soothing effects. Let the magic of Kava support your wellbeing and promote better rest!
Named after the beloved honeybee, Melissa officinalis gently calms the mind and helps you to release all kinds of stress, promoting smooth sailing and a positive outlook on life. This herb has a special affinity for the nervous system and is a time-honored restorative that balances mood, mind and spirit. As it soothes those racing thoughts, it also helps relax the uncomfortable body tension that can build up after a stressful day. Lemon Balm was the favorite herb of the famous “Father of Modern Medicine,” Paracelsus, and it is still widely respected by today’s practitioners.
Holy Basil / Tulsi
This amazing herb sharpens your awareness while clearing and calming your mind. As its name suggests, it has long been understood as a sacred herb in Ayurvedic tradition – a Rasayana, or restorative and life-enhancing tonic of the highest order. Sometimes called the “Elixir of Life,” Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum) has been thoroughly studied and verified by modern science as a stress-releasing and creativity-enhancing herb with balanced uplifting and calming activity and antioxidant power that protects and supports the nervous system.
The elegant Oat (Avena sativa) has a special stage where its developing seed is ‘milky.’ For only a few days of the year, the young seed exudes a rich, creamy fluid packed with constituents that gently restore balance to a stressed-out nervous system through support, nourishment, and deep healing. Known as the premiere ‘nervine restorative’ to botanical physicians, Milky Oat has long been favored in any situation with chronic mental strain or nervous exhaustion. Let the rich, soothing support of Milky Oat help you return to a balanced and calm experience of daily life.
Mimosa Tree Bark
A traditional favorite, the Mimosa tree (Albizia julibrissin) gives you an instant dose of feel-good energy that invites your mind and heart on a peaceful walk in nature where you can enjoy the beauty of life! Also known as the Persian Silk Tree, this lovely herb calms the spirit, uplifts the heart, and brings gentle joy back the mind. Its ability to help you release all kinds of stress and to free stuck emotions helps you to regain and sustain a calm, balanced attitude.
This appropriately-named herb, known scientifically as Scutellaria lateriflora, is the perfect companion for Milky Oats and the other herbs in our formula. Skullcap is another highly regarded nervine restorative herb that focuses on relaxing and supporting the brain and enhancing cognitive function. While smaller doses of Skullcap are neuroprotective, relaxant and restorative, larger doses can be extra calming and inviting of sleep! In the Calm formula, just the right amount of this active herb synergistically helps to restore a balanced mind, heart and spirit.
A greatly respected Ayurvedic herb, Withania somnifera has the unique power to reduce stress and enhance relaxation, while also restoring energy in both body and mind. Known as a relaxant adaptogen, Ashwagandha supports mental focus, enhances concentration, and calms racing thoughts. The name ‘Ashwagandha’ is traditionally associated with the powers of the horse: while some say it gives one the strength of a horse (or that it smells like a horse), others believe the name recalls the animal’s ability to sense a challenge, respond powerfully, then immediately relax when the situation resolves: a kind of instinctual mental and emotional flexibility that we could use more of as busy modern humans!
A beloved herb of Chinese tradition, the Five Flavor Berry has a unique aromatic profile that enlivens any formula – a real spice of life! Known scientifically as Schisandra chinensis, this little red berry is revered as a calmly energizing superfood that protects and empowers both body and mind. Schisandra is traditionally understood as a Shen tonic, one that supports the free circulation of balanced energy in the heart/mind/spirit. Schisandra is truly a harmonizing adaptogen, weaving together the powers of the other herbs to relax, support and balance your experience of life!
