Chamomile Tisane for Panic Attacks - Issue #32
By Ifayomi Fasola • Issue #32 • View online
Because panic attacks often evolve from unconscious fears that are especially challenging to understand, it is often helpful to seek a counselor, licensed practitioner, or have a stable support group when processing the fears of what’s causing it.

This Tisane, or herbal tea, can be served hot or cold. Its a relaxing, tasty evening drink, chamomile tisane gently soothes irritated nerve endings and eases away the day’s tension. Chamomile is a good source of tryptophan and helps relieve anxiety and tension.
Ingredients:
4 parts chamomile
2 parts lemon balm
1 part hawthorn (berries, blossoms, and leaves)
1 part skullcap
Instructions:
Combine the herbs.
See below for Infusion or decoction.
Infusion
  1. Boil 1 quart of water for each ounce of herb (or 1 cup of water to 1 tablespoon of herb)
  2. Pour the water over the herbs, and let steep for approximately 30 to 60 minutes. 
  3. To make a really strong medicinal blend, let the tea steep for several hours or even overnight. 
  4. The more herb you use and the longer it’s steeped, the stronger the brew
Decoction
Using the same proportions as for infusions (see above), place the herbs in cold water, cover tightly, bring to a low simmer, and let simmer for 30 to 45 minutes. For a stronger decoction, simmer for 30 to 45 minutes, and then let the herbs steep overnight.
Drink as much and as often as needed.
