"Calm Your Nerves" Tonic

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Sharon123

This will prove a blessing to everyone who takes it. It is soothing and relaxing, quieting to the nerves, has many good qualities, and is perfectly harmless. You can get the ingredients from any good health food store. You could up this to 1 cup each or lessen it to 1/8 cup each, according to your preference.

This certainly is a blessing! I had to omit the burnet root as I could not find it. I've been taking it by just putting a half tsp in my mouth and then washing it down with some cold water and then some hot water. I think the hot water is a necessary step- it really makes me feel like this is working a bit more and has really gotten washed down. Be forewarned- don't try and make a tea out of this! I tried that... ewwwwwww. Bitter, bitter, bitter! So, stick with taking it with some water or putting it in a gelatin tablet. It works wonders though- I really feel that when I take it I find that my mind feels much clearer and I feel more like I can take on the task at hand, rather than panicking. When I took this before bed, I found that I slept much more soundly and woke up feeling much more refreshed. Thank you, Sharon for this treasure.
