Herbal Tea To Soothe Anxiety

Drink Your Way To Anxiety Relief

If you suffer with anxiety you may be interested in this herbal tea that a friend of mine shared with me. She has been drinking it for a while now and it helps to soothe her anxiety. She is fortunate to have many herbs and plants growing in her garden and therefore loves to experiment with making herbal teas. Lucky her!

Herbal Teas For Anxiety Relief

The tea is a mixture of Lemon balm and St. John’s wort and anyone who has researched herbal anxiety remedies will be familiar with these two herbs.

Both are well known as anxiety relievers, so I think it is a good idea how she mixed the two into a drinkable tea.

As a little reminder, she pointed out that you shouldn’t use St. John’s wort if you use antidepressants as they don’t go together.  It has been known to cause Hypomania, or rapid changes in moods.

As I haven’t tasted it as yet, I can’t tell you what it tastes like, but she has explained that it is a little bit bitter, but nothing we won’t get used to.

Herbal Tea Directions

So if you are interested in making this soothing tea, this is what you have to do.

  • A teaspoon of each herb cover with 0.2 liters of boiling water (one cup).
  • Cover it and let it stand about 10 minutes.
  • To reduce bitterness, you can add some honey…which is better for you than sugar.

This would be an ideal tea to drink anytime, but she said it is also wonderful to drink before bedtime. It certainly would help soothe the nerves and make for a relaxing stress-free night’s sleep.

So do you have a special tea you make to soothe your stress and anxiety? If you do, I would love to hear your recipe too! Plus, when you make your cup of herbal tea as described above, tell us what you think and share your experience!

About Jennifer Johnson

I suffered with social anxiety and stress for years. I discovered what my triggers were and learned to control them. Hopefully some of the natural anxiety relief techniques I have tried, will also be your solution.


  1. I’ve heard of teas that can help you relax and get you into a more easy-going state before.

    I didn’t get the chance to try one so far, but I will definitely give this a try as soon as I get my hands on some St. John’s Wort.

    I doubt it grows anywhere around in my country, so I’ll have to look into that. Thanks a bunch for the tip!

      Herbal teas are wonderful for anxiety, just don’t use St John’s Wort if you are taking anti-depressants.
