Passion Flower

Passiflora incarnata.

This herb is one of nature’s best tranquilizers. It relieves muscle tension and other manifestations of extreme anxiety. It is especially good for nervous insomnia: the kind that keeps you lying in bed worrying until the wee hours of the morning. Since the tryptophan scare, in which a contaminated batch of this essential amino acid was linked to several deaths, passionflower has become very popular as a safe, natural alternative to help promote a good night’s sleep. Herbalists often recommend passionflower for times of extreme emotional upset.

How to use it:

Mix 15 to 60 drops of extract in liquid as needed daily.

Caution: This herb may cause sleepiness in some people, and should not be used before driving or operationg machinery. Do not take during pregnancy.
