3 Unique Stress-Relieving Adrenal Cocktails

3 Unique Stress-Relieving Adrenal Cocktails

As this is published, it is currently eclipse season during Aries season, so the energy is QUITE spicy! As a Leo who lives for drama, I love it. 

But I can only imagine how on edge we will be. And since eclipse season is notorious for throwing curve balls, I feel like a little support with plant medicine that can support our bodies and nervous system during this time can be very useful.

Libra and Aries are in a dance this eclipse season with the Lunar Eclipse in Libra on the 25th and the Solar Eclipse in Aries on the 8th. The Aries-Libra sign axis govern the adrenal glands, which is a part of the endocrine system that helps regulate bodily functions including how you respond to stress. And since Aries, known for being hot-headed, can be associated with stress and migraines, this is the perfect time to drop these recipes. 

Keep cool and save the heat for when you need it. 

Or just let the chopper sing, and sit and reflect on it while sipping on one of these mocktails! LOL, enjoy!

3 Unique Stress-Relieving Adrenal Cocktails

We live in a world that often demands more from us than we can give, so it is not just nice to have little rituals, tools, and treats where we can find vitality. It is necessary.  

As we all juggle balancing our dreams, professional ambitions, personal goals, and the myriad duties that life throws our way can leave us feeling drained and disconnected from our own needs.

In simple terms, life gets stressful as h*ll. But that's life. 

Luckily, there are ways we can work with our body to improve the way we deal with stress, making us more resilient. This concept is the cornerstone of our Adaptogen Drink Cookbook, since adaptogens are unique herbs that help the body resist stressors of all kinds, whether physical, chemical, or biological. 

But adrenal cocktails are another way to help support the way your body deals with stress.

Adrenal health is foundational to how we navigate stress, fatigue, and the overall demands of our daily lives. When our adrenal glands are supported and balanced, we’re better equipped to handle life’s challenges with grace and energy.

What are Adrenal Cocktails Made Of?

These drinks typically contain a combination of:

  • Juice with natural Vitamin C: This could be orange, pineapple, or other citrus juices. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that supports the immune system, which can be helpful during times of stress.
  • Coconut water: Coconut water is a good source of electrolytes, particularly potassium. Electrolytes are important for hydration, muscle function, and nerve transmission. Dehydration can negatively impact various bodily functions, including stress response. Coconut water can contribute to hydration, which is generally beneficial.
  • Sea Salt or Cream of Tartar or Trace Mineral drops: Provides trace minerals and electrolytes.

Why Adrenal Cocktails?

Now more than ever, we find ourselves in need of simple, accessible practices that can make a significant impact on our well-being.

Adrenal cocktails, with their unique blend of vitamins, minerals, (and we have added some adaptogenic herbs in a recipe below), serve not just as a nourishing break in the day that supports our body's natural resilience against stress and fatigue. If taken in the morning or when you start to lose steam after work, an adrenal cocktail can give you a boost of energy. 

Disclaimer: Even though a few of the ingredients in adrenal cocktails offer some health benefits, there’s no evidence that these drinks are necessary for the health of the adrenal glands.

Adrenal Iced Tea

Our first adrenal cocktail, the Adrenal Iced Tea, is a refreshing blend of soothing tulsi, zesty lemons, and nourishing oranges. With a splash of maple syrup for sweetness and a pinch of sea salt for electrolyte balance, this cooling beverage is perfect for sipping on a hot day or whenever you need a moment of tranquility. Tulsi, also known as holy basil, is revered in Ayurvedic medicine for its adaptogenic properties, helping the body adapt to stress and promote overall well-being.
