KAVA

KAVA
This weekend I discovered another herbal anti-anxiety that I believe works really well! It is called Kava (sometimes, Kava-Kava). It is a plant found and used by many Pacific Island states.

Some say it has holistic properties and some use it for anxiety. The thing to remember about Essential Oils ad Extracts are the same for any type of substance. Every person has a different tolerance so some people can really feel the effects and some people can hardly feel them at all.

The Genus and Species is Piper methysticum. The root of the plant is pulverized to make drinks or teas that can ease a person’s mind while maintaining clarity. It’s used for temporary relief from anxiety, stress, and insomnia. Kavalactones are the API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) that are in many anti-depressants and anxiety medications and can provide a similar state of mind but all natural!

If you have trouble with anxiety, I would check this out for sure.

Cheers!
