Look and feel your best for the last hoorah of the summer: Labor Day!

Whether you’re hitting the beach, going to a fest or hanging out at a good old-fashioned barbecue, get your #hotgirlsummer and bring a calming herbal sangria that everyone will talk about!

This relaxing sangria recipe is packed with the stress-relieving herbs: chamomile and hibiscus.

Chamomile is renowned for relaxing muscles while helping you take a load off emotionally. It’s an awesome pain killer that brings down inflammation in the body, fights spasms and anxious tension. It’s also a great digestive aid— which makes chamomile infused anything the perfect after-dinner beverage. 

Hibiscus is a flower that you probably didn’t know was medicinal! Hibiscus is loved for its ability to balance your immune system. It helps your body fight oxidation which leads to illness, inflammation and slower internal processes. It’s added to teas to brighten up the blend and give you a little bit of energy without any caffeine.
