    There are different herbs that can be taken for grief. I know this is probably pretty personal but would have to ask about the type of grief and how you are experiencing this?

    For example, are you weeping constantly? Or are you the type that suffers inwardly? Are you feeling it in your chest or heart? Are you unable to sleep or perhaps you want to sleep all the time? Are you experiencing stomach upset and are unable to eat?

    The homeopathic remedy, Ignatia, is one of the most common remedies given for general symptoms of grief.

    You can PM me if you prefer not to reply in the forum.

    This article could be beneficial. I have heard of using roses before. I'm truly sorry that you are experiencing this. I'm saying a prayer for you today.

    So sorry to hear you are feeling grief and your are in our thoughts & prayers. For me I found that teaa that were calming and was herbal - no caffeine.

    I'm so sorry you are grieving. The first thought I had was the presentation Deb Swanson did on "50 Shades of Blue." It might contain some helpful information. You can get access to it here:

    I also understand oat top tincture to be stress-relieving, but I have not yet had a chance to try that. And I think oatstraw nourishing infusions help support a general sense of well-being.

    Mugwort. It seems to lessen the amount of attention the brain wants to spend thinking about painful events.

    Thank you everyone for prayers, that you would pray for a complete stranger is incredible and powerful. Also, I will look into the ideas and articles, presentations you sent.

    @nicksamanda11 whenever I’m feeling down, sad or troubled, I rub a drop of peppermint and a drop of wild orange EO on the palm of my hand and rub together vigorously. I find a quiet spot, try to forget everything, cup my hands together and deep breathe, try the alternate nostril way, count to 5, block the other nostril with your thumb or pointer finger etc. I also find nettle tea uplifting. I hope things have improved for you over the last week. Hugs.

    I love essential oils! Their scent can last even longer if you have a diffuser.
