Zen Herbs/Adaptogens/Peaceful Herbs
This is a favorite topic of mine! Extended (though older) notes on herbs for relaxation and energy (link above) including adaptogens and more calming/nervine and mood-boosting herbs. Also see the Adaptogen Chart (this will print on one page but is in tiny print so you may prefer opening on a laptop so you can zoom in and out), as well as the Growing & Using Peaceful Herbs handout, this video on how to make my favorite sleep tea. and enjoy the radio show of me chatting up my favorite adaptogens.
