Skullcap herb (Scutellaria lateriflora): Skullcap provides a gentle relaxant action to the entire nervous system and is well-documented in European and Native American traditional herbal medicine as a nerve tonic (nervine). Nervines are a classification of medicinal herbs that exert an action directly on the nervous system.
Valerian root (Valeriana officinalis): Valerian root is another supportive nervine that is helpful for relaxation.
Lemon Balm herb (Melissa officinalis): Amongst its other actions, Lemon Balm is calming, gently uplifting to the spirits, and has been used for nervous excitability and restlessness.
Passion Flower herb (Passiflora incarnata): This exotic-looking herb provides gentle relaxing properties.
Hops strobiles (Humulus lupulus): Hops helps ease nervousness, relaxes smooth muscle, and may exert a longer-lasting effect upon the nervous system than many other nervines. Hops is also supportive to the urinary system for those animals who exhibit symptoms of stress in the urinary tract when stressed, such as dribbling or peeing.
Licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra): One of its main properties is that of an adaptogen, meaning that it can assist the body to adapt to stress through its action on the adrenal glands. Licorice also provides a naturally sweet, pleasant flavor.
Fresh Wild Oat seed (Avena fatua): As a nerve restorative, Wild Oat seeds gently assist the body in times of nervous exhaustion or nervous debility. The nutrients in Wild Oat seeds are particularly restorative to nerve cells.
Chamomile flower (Matricaria chamomilla): Used traditionally as a mild sedative, Chamomile can be particularly useful for hyperactivity, excitability, and digestive upset.
Ginger root (Zingiber officinale): A small amount of Ginger is added to this formula for easing stress-related nausea or digestive issues. Ginger also stimulates digestive secretions and can help to keep the appetite normal and healthy.
