Home Remedy Treatments for Anxiety
While anxiety to some women can feel like a never ending battle, there are some home remedies to try to help eliminate it or at least get it under control better and can help relax your body.
Remedies in Your Cupboard
Soak 10 almonds over night in water until the skin is soft and then peel it off. In a blender, add the almonds with 1 cup of warm milk, pinch of ginger, and nutmeg. Mix together and drink at night.
In a bath, add 1/3 cup ginger and 1/3 cup baking soda. Relax for 15 minutes in the tub to get rid of tension and anxiety.
You can warm sunflower oil, sesame, corn oil, or coconut oil just enough to be hot, but not too hot. Heat 6 ounces and massage over entire body either in the morning or at night to help relieve tension.
Remedies from the Refrigerator
Eat 2 cups of onion, celery or both, cooked or raw with each one of your meals for about a week or longer. The both of them contain two key ingredients, folic acid and potassium, that are deficiencies that can cause nervousness.
An orange’s aroma can be very soothing as well as relaxing and is known to reduce the amount of stress and anxiety. The peel can be set in a potpourri burner, and when heated will release a soothing fragrance that will help to relax you.
By stirring in 1 teaspoon of honey as well as a pinch of nutmeg with a glass of juice can help slow down a racing heart that can be caused by stress and anxiety.
