Get ready, get set, SHOP!

Okay T-minus 3 days to Black Friday!!! Do you have your shopping lists and coupons ready to go? While Friday's official start to the holiday shopping season can be an absolute nightmare to some, don't forget, there are some natural ways to curb that holiday stress.

Throw some licorice in your bag before you set out. Licorice protects against the damaging effects of stress, reduces inflammation and boost the immune system. Valerian relaxes the nervous system and supports restful sleep. Passion fruit contains anti-anxiety properties. Kava is another great, natural stress reliever, it is used for anxiety, insomnia and as a over-all relaxant.

If you are going to be out and about all day, mix these ingredients in a small, leak-proof container and keep on hand to combat holiday fatigue and stress:

  • 1 tsp. of valerian rhizome.
  • 1 tsp. of licorice root.
  • 1 tsp. of siberian ginseng root.
  • 1 tsp. of kava root.
Take one teaspoon every 3 or 4 hours.

Got any pre or post holiday shopping tips? Let us know.......
