Relaxation is key to keeping your mind and body in a healthy state. With all the hustle and bustle happening in the world, we often don’t take the time to just sit and do nothing, even if it is just for a few minutes a day.
Most of us long for that moment where we can just sit, relax and think about nothing. Sadly, that moment rarely comes.
Many of us use various methods to relax throughout the day, when we can. Maybe you enjoy a relaxing tea, or a nice cold brew. But what if there was a ‘magic’ herb, a plant that would calm your mind and body. I know what you are thinking, marijuana (works wonders for the mind and body also), but it’s not the good ol’ Mary Jane, it’s the Bay Leaf.
Research has found that burning just one Bay Leaf inside your home can put the mind and body at ease in just 5-minutes time.
Gennady Malakhov is the Russian scientist who is credited for finding out the stress-relieving benefits of the Bay leaf. Fresh or dried, you may have used it for cooking, the smell is very distinctive. But it’s the medicinal use for several skin and respiratory conditions, as well as tension relief that most people are not aware of. Here’s how to get these relaxation benefits.
First, burn a dry bay leaf in an ashtray. Then leave the room for 5 to 10 minutes. When you return, you’ll notice the atmosphere of the room has changed. The positive, relaxing effects will be present in the air. Now, just sit back in a chair or couch, and simply relax by taking deep breaths. The aroma should be calming to your body and your soul!
