I think the other other aromathery-related video is Wake Up and Smell the Saffron, though I have others on natural ways do reduce anxiety, including:

• Gut Feelings: Probiotics and Mental Health (
• The Best Way to Boost Serotonin (
• Plant-based Diet and Mood (
• Herbal Tea Update Rooibos Nettle (

Natural, though, doesn’t always mean safe. See, for example:

• Plant-Based Bioidentical Hormones (
• The Wrong Way to Boost Serotonin (
• Chamomile Tea May Not Be Safe During Pregnancy (
• Some Dietary Supplements May Be More Than a Waste of Money (
• Some Ayurvedic Medicine Worse Than Lead Paint Exposure (
