Feeling stressed?  Take a tea break with a warming cup of this easy herbal infusion.  Add 1/2 tsp of dried basil, 1/2 tsp of dried lemon balm, and 1/4 tsp of dried chamomile to almost boiling water and let steep 15 minutes.
Basil is a mild sedative and is said to help relieve anxiety and nervousness.  Lemon balm is commonly used to treat heartache and depression.  Chamomile has long been used for aches and pains and as a sleeping aid.  Together, these herbs will help you relax and will soothe you.
Be sure to sip your drink while taking a few minutes to breathe and concentrate on relaxing your muscles.
