Sleep Better/Feel Better with My Favorite Thing Ever: Liquid Herbs

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and lifestyle blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.

I made you guys a promise I’d share all the deets on liquid herbs.

Let me just preface this by saying I’m naturally an anxious person ( shocker, right? ). I can’t really relax because I’m always stressed about what I should be doing or what I could be doing. It sounds productive but actually that anxious feeling is super freaking annoying. Sometimes I just want to take a chill pill, ya know?

Anyway the number one way I deal with anxiety is with exercise— it’s literally life changing if you’re anxious.

Wine and sex are close second.


But really, on a seriously, serious note- liquid herbs have been amaze for my anxiety levels, so now they’ve been officially incorporated into my bedtime routine.

Like, no thanks sickie Ambien, I’m good with my all-natural herbs.

After meeting with an herb doctor, he said the best bedtime herbs were valerian root and ashwagandha root. He picked these specific herbs for anxiety because they’re known to promote relaxation ( hence why I take them before bed ). More benefits of these two herbs can be found here & here.

The reason liquid herbs come highly recommended is because:

>> they allow optimal absorption

>> work quicker than eating herbs orally

>> have a long-shelf life

>> allow you to become familiar with the taste of the plant

>> they can easily be taken in water or tea

>> & lastly, they’re convenient/easy to ingest

If you decide to take herbs, talk to a a professional first to see what’s right for you.

  4. Hi Lauryn! I love this advice about liquid herbs and will definitely be stopping by my health store to grab some ASAP. I have a question for you though! I know you are super natural and don’t like fake junk in your bod, so I was wondering how you feel about birth control? I’m thinking about it but I don’t want all those hormones and chemicals in my body. What’s your opinion of this?!

  5. Thanks for this post! I have the exact kind of anxiety right before bed, and used to take sleep meds but have since weaned off, so I’ve been looking for a natural alternative. Question though before I try these out…how do they taste? Is it like, not so bad with water, or do you need a “chaser” with it hah? Thanks!

  6. Very interesting! Do you combine them into one drink before you go to bed? Or have you taken one one night, and the other the next night?

  7. I am a therapist and swear by liquid passionflower (in glycerin, not alcohol) to help manage my anxiety when nothing else seems to work… Bonus: totally kills a hangover ;).

  8. Interesting! I totally have the same kind of anxiety — I should definitely try these liquid herbs! This may be a dumb question, but when you say “take,” do you mean drink? How much?

  9. After going to Mayo, I learned that a lot of what I thought were hormonal issues (PMS and such) were actually lymphatic ones.
    Here’s an interesting article about the whole shebang.

  10. Wow, this is very cool. I have a horrible time sleeping most days, especially lately due to stress/anxiety so I will definitely look into this more.
