About the Herbs

Chamomile: Well-loved as a calming herb, chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) is a favorite after-dinner herb that is both pleasant tasting and effective. It supports digestion through its bitter and carminative actions and calms the nervous system as a gentle nervine, helping to release tension.

Lavender: Another perennial favorite herb, lavender (Lavandula spp.) is delightfully aromatic and shines as a nervine tonic. It helps to decrease tension, whether that be presenting as a headache or stomachache, and promotes restful sleep. 

Peppermint: A well-known digestive herb, peppermint (Mentha x piperita) is also carminative that relaxes the digestive system and releases tension in the nervous system. It’s appealing flavor is a winning addition to an herb blend!
