esc – calm in a can (+WIN a case of 12 cans)

esc

What? it looks like and energy drink? And it’s meant to CALM me down rather than leave me hyped up all night on the dancefloor? AND it has 50 calories per can (which is like eating an apple), I can buy it online and it tastes reasonable?

What?

Oh yeah, too hyper, let’s drink a can then finish this post.

So, this drink has Valerian in it, which is a mild herbal relaxant and has anti-anxiety properties. Usually found in the vitamin isle, Valerian tablets have gotten me to sleep many a stressful night, whether by their relaxant qualities or from me getting up, moving around, having a glass of water then going back to bed. I was never sure. But it got a diet coke addicted girl through uni. The other ingredient include chamomile and passion flower which are also well known as calming. Tryptophan is an amino acid, which is needed for the production of Serotonin (ie happy relaxy brain chemicals). Seems the perfect drink for an overhyped, anxiety-prone girl like myself ;)

This drink has a small amount of fizz, more like the amount in Berocca rather than a fizzy drink. The taste isn’t very strong. Like a weak tropical cordial. Seems like a good drink to have if you want something cold but calming before something big, like an interview or hot date ;)

    Sounds intriguing! The relaxation method I’m currently trialling is to dab a little bit of lavender oil behind my ears and at my temples before I go to bed. According to aromatherapy theory, lavender is meant to help you relax, and relieve symptoms of insomnia. (It can also be used as an antiseptic for minor cuts and burns.) I do tend to sleep more deeply when I do use lavender oil, but it has the unfortunate side effect of making you smell like a nanna!

    Oh lord, how I wish I had an answer, but I’ve been having insomniac weeks so… yeah. In truth, the main thing that gets me to sleep is when I get so exhausted and frustrated that I end up crying until I’m so weary I drop off.

    Not recommended! :P

    Get my hubby to look after our son, shut myself in the bathroom and indulge in a long hot shower, filled with pampering products like shower gels, body scrubs, hair masks, facial exfoliants, and so on and so forth. It is not relaxing if my son bursts in, so hubby must be on his game to ensure this doesn’t happen! :)

    Oh so curious! I really want to try this, just to see if it works. I could really use some instant relaxation in a can. ;) The only thing that works for me is a good long shower to clear my mind after a rough day.

    I listen to music and completely zone out when I need to relax.

    I took my last Valerian the other night when I couldn’t sleep. You’ve just reminded me that I need to buy more! I’ve also discovered the wonders of Rescue Remedy, for when calm is required other than sleep-time.
    I love the sound of esc and and would definitely try it out. Assuming esc is short for escape?

    Massages are always a great way to relax. I had a 90 minute Thai massage for Mother’s Day…slept like a baby for 3 nights straight!

What do you think?
