With all of us bunkering down during this quarantine, and no definitive end in sight, it is completely normal to experience signs of stress. It is an unfortunate, but unavoidable side effect of the increased hours we are all spending inside our homes. While not being able to interact with nature and other humans as often as we are used to, it becomes more challenging to manage normal levels of stress.
New Recommendations On Social Distancing
When it comes to the new recommendations of social distancing however, a little alone time may not be such a bad thing. One of the most well-known forms of stress relief is meditations. Meditating is an excellent way to help ourselves cope with what is happening, and a great way to reset and rewind on a daily basis. This added alone time can be a benefit in disguise, and it does not have to stop at just meditation!
Having items in your house to help combat the physical, mental, and emotional stressors we experience will also be very helpful during this time.

1. Natural Calm
Magnesium drink to mix w/ warm water for a comforting night time routine. We use more magnesium when we are stressed but we need magnesium to help calm us down and sleep well! We recommend starting with 1/2 teaspoon in warm water and working your way up to 2 tsp in warm water!
We have endocannabinoid receptors all throughout our body including our brain and nervous system. Some of these molecules in our endocannabinoid system (ECS) are responsible for feelings of bliss or peacefulness! Everyone’s dosage is different with CBD but starting with 2 sprays of our Green Formula Plus CBD oil may help to balance you out during this time. Can be used throughout the day or at bedtime
3. Holy Basil
Holy basil, also known as Tulsi, is an adaptogenic herb that has been used in Ayurveda for maintaining a healthy stress response and nourishing the mind. It may help to de-stress the mind as well. It truly helps to maintain homeostasis. We have it available in capsule or tincture form
4. Simmer Down Tonic
This quick acting tonic promotes a more mellow mood, soothes nervousness and helps to support sleep. However, it can be taken throughout the day as it is non-sedative. A staff favorite for immediate bliss!
