Herbal Remedies for Anxiety Relief

Nature has provided us with several herbal remedies for anxiety, which is a growing problem of our times.

Today, we live in a complex world of high stress and high pressure. Everything needs to be fast, and everything must be good. We have a million possessions to take care of, and a hundred passwords and pin numbers to remember and use.

This type of scenario can make people far more prone to experiencing anxiety. There are many herbs that have nervine, or nerve sedative properties, which can be used as part of an herbal treatment for anxiety. Some are better than others, and some are far better than others. This article will cover the five most powerful and effective nerve sedative herbs for anxiety.


The first of the anxiety herbal remedies to be discussed is valerian. Valerian is one of the most powerful nervine herbs there is. You can use it in varying amounts to do anything from calming the nerves, or as a natural sleeping agent. If you have a high quality tincture of valerian, this can be a convenient way to use it. However, for the purpose of a nerve sedative, a tea is usually the most ideal, and most pleasant way to use it.


Passionflower is one of the top nerve sedative herbs in the world, and is one of the best herbal remedies for anxiety. This is the same species that passionfruits come from, although the variety that is used for herbal purposes is slightly different from the variety grown for its fruit.

This is an attractive plant that can be grown in any garden with a mild to tropical summer climate. The Latin name for the medicinal variety is passiflora incarnate. As anti anxiety herbs, the entire flower is used; it can be used to make a tincture, or it can be dried and stored for later use.
