Spearmint - mild pain reliever, digestive aid for any gastrointestinal issues
Chamomile - sleep aid, sedative, eases anxiety, the best herb for use with infants and children.
Lemon Balm - good for easing anxiety, child's herb for sleep and nightmares, nervine.
Catnip - soothes and nourished nerves and muscles. Pain relieving and calming.
Lemon balm has a higher potency when used fresh so I always gather these herbs fresh from the garden in the fall to make a glycerite for a long term storage and ease of administering to my kiddos (an myself...yum). You can also used dried herbs to make an herbal tea, for an herbal bath or foot soak or even herbal capsules.
