Traditionally in herbal medicine, we mix herbs to address the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual state of the person. We will take the herbs that you need for an ailment that needs addressing and then we will design formulation to address the other underlying and equally important contributions to your state of being,
Make some Melissa tea and sip it through the day to help you stay rel;axed. Then twice a day have some herbal extract formula that contains about 25% melissa with other herbs such as oats, hypericum, bacopa, echinacea and ginkgo biloba.
I love herbs for the emotional and soul support that they offer, I love herbs and especially Melissa in any blend that requires stengthening, support, emotional wellbeing and particularly in stressed situations where we need to slow down your heart beat and get you feeling all calm and happy again.
