Tea for Anxiety

Lavender is renowned for its aromatic qualities, often used in aromatherapy to induce a sense of tranquility. Just the scent of it can bring calmness, and you can experience the same effect by consuming it. Lavender also excels in easing anxiety and depression without causing drowsiness, making it an excellent choice when feeling anxious.

After a long day of work or activity, what you need most is a peaceful night’s sleep. To enhance the quality of your sleep, you can turn to caffeine-free chamomile tea.
