Nighty-night after the Party

The aftermath of the holiday spirit for me is an explosion of the positive feeling of how blessed I am for what I have – food, shelter, health, family, and friends. However, after a long day with family and friends you feel totally overwhelmed – but in a good way – in your head.

It is something that I have realized during pandemic, when I meet with people. Whether you are extroverted or introverted, during the Christmas and New Year holidays, you meet everyone that you haven’t seen all over the year.

So, at the end of the day, you need something to help you relax. A tried-and true-recipe for soothing irritated nerves and ease the day’s tension is highly needed. The above recipe is perfect to help relax in your house after those overcrowded and noisy gatherings. Because we are loud Greek people!

• 2 teaspoons of chamomile
• 1 teaspoon of rose petals
• 1 teaspoon of lemon balm
• 1 teaspoon of salepi powder or oat meal flour

Boil 700 ml of water and pour it over the mixture. Leave it for 10 minutes and then strain it. Drink as much as you need, and sweet dreams!

* The above is not medical advice but mere suggestions for improving your diet. Before reach herbal use you should consult your doctor, especially those who have health issues, are pregnant or are under the age of 6.
