July 2013 Meeting: Beating Stress with Herbal Tea

July was all about taking some time out and de-stressing – something we all need a bit of help to do. The lovely Tracy Tutty, local herbalist, stress therapist and all round relaxed person led us through how we respond to stress and what we can do to combat it. After a few relaxation exercises we were all feeling pretty zen, so on to the action…

Next Tracy led us through the herbs our bodies need when we are stressed out and taught us how to make and taste our own herabl teas. We all tried our hand at making a tasty cuppa and needless to say some were more successful than others! What is certain though is that we all came away a bit calmer.
