“If you don’t think your anxiety, depression, sadness, and stress impact your physical health, think again.

There will always be dark days.” – Kris Carr

I used to drink peppermint tea daily before I had my son. Since then the smell has just made me sick, I drink licorice tea every morning, it is a calming and relaxing smell and my kids love it too.

Hello Bethzy! Which tea are you referring to? I just saw in one of my juicing groups that fresh celery juice (nothing added to it) helped a couple people with their migraines. Kelly
