    Know any natural remedies for stress?

    Salaam all ok basically I think im a little stressed nowadays and its due to a build up of a number of factors which would take me years to write up and would bore the heck out of you all lol. But all in all i feel it has built up to a point where it has become hard to keep telling myself that time will fix all problems and bring about solutions and postive changes. I wouldnt call it depression because Alhumdulilah I have a lot to be grateful for and when i compare my concerns to those who have real genuine problems in life, i feel blessed that Allah has provided me with so much. But all that is not helping me and i feel this stress is taking its toll on my health ever since I've been going through these problems. My hair is falling out, im always feeling lethargic, ive gained so much weight my clothes from last year barely fit, my stomach always hurts whether i eat or not, my skin is grey and dry and i have very low confidence. Theres days when i just dont want to get out of bed because i know that as soon as i get up i have all the same things going on again and i just cant be asked to face another day of these thoughts. Can any of you recommend a herbal tea or something that a hakim in the family would prescribe? All suggestions much appreciated!

                You can buy these plug-in diffusers for dogs to relieve stress (they're often marketed around Fireworks Night etc).. wish you could get them for humans as well

                      funny but you can.......just purchase the glade plug-ins with Lavender refills. these do a lot to relieve stress......best to use them in your bathroom as this is a smaller space and allows the scent to linger rather than disperse quickly.
                      add scented candles in lavender and a hot bath and you'll do well.

                      sleep also helps stress. try to find some extra sleep time if you can.

                        Lavendar is known to have a calming effect. I think eucalyputs is also said to reduce reduce stress. You can even get those Aromatherapy bath salts and scrubs from Bath and Body Works.....and indulge in a relaxing soak before bed time. Some of the products are for stress reductaion and others are to promote sleep. Perhaps herbal teas might work..although teas contain caffeine. There are natural herbal supplements that promote sleep and relaxation. Maybey try yoga?

                          deep breathing works tonns ... go for a walk often and ensure you do deep breathing every hour .. this really helps relieve alot of stress ...

                          Stop having coffee and tea .. these things build up stress even more ...

                          Start taking camomile tea , it is really really relaxing ... go for a massage ... or see if you can join a yoga group ...


                          In the end , you just got to learn to manage stress before it starts taking over your life .. and for that you need to put your body in the habit of throwing that stress out via an activity ... what activity that should be , you decide ..
                          The Prophet Muhammad SAW reported that the Satan said to Allah: "I shall continue to lead Thy servants astray as long as their spirits are in their bodies." And Allah replied: "(Then) I shall continue to pardon them as long as they ask for My forgiveness." [Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 742]

                              the only natural/herbal remedy for stress/tension/anxiety i know of is rock rose essence, you get it at earthfare or probably any whole foods market. a doctor friend had recommended it to me and he gives it to his lil son when he gets over anxious/nervous. It's natural and herbal and it helps me with my anxiety/stress, ask your doctor if it's ok for you to take it just to be on the safe side. it picks me up
