65 women attended a Tu B’Shvat program at the Chabad Center for Jewish Life in Indianapolis that featured a workshop “to give you easy and inexpensive tools to feel more empowered.”
Organized by Shluchim Rabbi Avrohom and Nini Grossbaum, the event was headlined by Sara Chana Silverstein, herbalist and author of the book “Moodtopia.”
Silverstein was the keynote speaker of the event where the women learned about the health and healing benefits of trees and discussed “why Hashem made women moody.”
She also made a guest appearance on Indy Style, Central Indiana’s live local lifestyle TV program where she explained that herbs can actually help with emotions.
Here is her list:
• Rose: If you have a broken heart
• Blue Vervain: For anxiety
• Skullcap: Used for nervous tension
• Lavender: For stuck sadness
• Oats: When you burn the candle at both ends
• Valerian: Stress out all the time
• Grapefruit: gives you a lift!
• Lavender: helps with sleep
• Ylang Ylang: gives energy and relaxes
• Rose: helps diffuse sadness
