Sometimes we need a helping hand to get through a particularly stressful time. Some need to find a way of coping with a stressful job. Whatever your lifestyle, adaptogenic herbs are brilliant for dealing with and reducing the effects of stress on the body. They can help improve mental resilience and relieve exhaustion from overwork or long-term stress.

Infuse a heaped teaspoon of the tisane in hot water using either an infuser, a teapot and strainer, or a cafetière and your favourite mug. Let the tisane infuse for 5-10 minutes. Drink up to 3 cups a day.
*Holly's Tip* This tisane is best suited to be used with infusers with a very fine mesh or tea bags. The ingredients are dried leaves, which crumble into very small pieces and will escape from silicon infusers. View our range of infusers here.
- Tulsi – do not take while pregnant or trying to conceive.
- Gotu Kola –can cause an allergic reaction in rare cases.
When we experience stress, cortisol is released in the brain (the fight or flight response). This is a necessary reaction, but without an outlet, elevated levels of cortisol over time can have a huge range of serious health implications, such as raised blood pressure, digestion issues, mental health problems and can lead to damaging behavior, such as increased alcohol intake.
We’re all different, but we all need to find ways of reducing the amount of stress we are exposed to and helping ourselves deal with the stresses we simply can’t avoid. For some people this could be talking through things with a friend or professional. For others this may be cleaning the house and reclaiming order. Some people need quiet head space and find meditation helpful. Others need the opposite and go for a 5k run with their headphones blaring. Find what works for you, look after yourself and always keep hydrated.
