Instructions
  1. Heat your 8 oz of filtered water. (You can use up to 12 oz if you find the flavors of the magnesium and tea together are too strong!)
  2. Let your tea bag steep for 5-10 min.
  3. Add 1.5 tsp of magnesium citrate powder to your tea. It will be fizzy!
Recipe Notes

Note:  I often use the Magnesium Calm with Calcium.  I have noticed that the flavors without the added calcium are a bit fizzier, so make sure you have enough room in your mug for the fizzy goodness...or be prepared for a volcano!

If you aren’t familiar with Natural Calm, you probably should be. This fizzy magnesium citrate supplement became a staple in our household with its many life-altering properties: aids in relaxation, reduces anxiety, relieves constipation, promotes restful sleep.  This list goes on.
 
The Lemon-Raspberry flavor has been our standard fare, though there are other flavors available including cherry and orange.  There’s even non-flavored for those die-hard “I don’t even consume Stevia” peeps. (Yeah, I was one of you for awhile, but I traded in my no-Stevia-card. A girl’s gotta get her sweet fix somehow, right?).
 
However, now there’s a new Calm on the block.  Meet Calm tea.  I wish I could take the credit for this flavorful masterpiece.  Alas, it’s my Calm-loving husband’s handiwork.  I love this stress-reducing concoction.  All you need is a flavorful herbal tea and some Calm.
 
Heat your water.  Steep your tea.  Add your spoonfuls (1.5 teaspoons is a serving) of Calm.  Stir.  Sip.  Relax.
 
Any herbal tea will do.  I like to use Tulsi Vanilla Cream.  Tulsi tea uses Holy Basil, an adaptogenic herb from the mint family.   Adaptogens help you adapt to life: your demanding boss, your food-throwing toddler, your puppy that just mistook that newly wrapped crimson present for a fire hydrant.
Don’t think it’s just for bedtime, either.  I like to take it preemptively for those times I  know I can be easily aggravated.  And if herbal tea isn’t exactly your cup-o-tea, you can always use it the standard way.  Just add it to water (hot or cold).  Some people add it to a post-workout shake to aid in recovery.
Take a deep breath.  Grab your tea cup.  Sip away the tension.
