Great question as many people with anxiety feel very uncomfortable taking prescription medications to combat their symptoms. There are many homeopathic choices available in all kinds of forms - from liquid and tea bags to hard candy-style or chewable treats, there is something for everyone's comfort level. In fact, even scented candles can help to diminish one's anxiety and panic.

For the individual who just can't stand the thought of ingesting something foreign to calm their spirit, homeopathic or otherwise, they might find help in lavender scented candles and the like. Lavender is widely known to be a calming scent and has been used as such across the globe. If one prefers to take warm baths to relax, a nice lavender foaming soap would be a good application. Lavender scented candles provide a soothing ambience along with its very pleasant aroma. Lavender incense or potpourri can be used as well. It is all a matter of personal preference - so try different things and see what works best for you.

For those willing to try imbibing a remedy, chamomile tea is a wonderful addition to the kitchen cupboard. Like lavender, chamomile has been used widely as a calming agent. It is also used as a sleep aid. Valerian root is also an amazing alternative and can be found in many tinctures and teas. Calming and sleep-inducing, Valerian root is extremely handy. When one is anxious, sleep becomes a valuable commodity and more needed than ever. Ginger and lemon balm can provide relief by calming and warming your insides. Put a piece of dried or candied ginger between your gum and the side of your mouth, and feel the warmth it provides. It will also calm your stomach. If you prefer teas to tinctures, simply add the drops of your chosen anxiety-fighter to your favorite tea. All of these can be found at your local all-natural foods store. In fact, you should be able to find some branded items aimed directly at fighting anxiety. Don't be afraid to give them a try. The worst that happens is that they don't work for you.

Keep your current medication list in mind when shopping for homeopathic remedies. For example, if you are taking certain prescription drugs, Valerian root and St. John's Wort can be dangerous. You must be mindful of that. There are many options available, so try until you find the right one for you. Good luck!
