Stress Less Bliss Balls

The ingredients in this recipe were chosen for their high magnesium content.  Magnesium is a key mineral for relaxation and supporting the adrenal glands during times of stress.  The Herbal Medicine Licorice is an ‘adrenal tonic’, meaning it is one of the best herbs for optimal functioning of the adrenals.  Licorice as a confectionery doesn’t have the same effect as the Herbal Medicine, however, it is a delicious source of sweetness so no fruit or dried fruit is used in this recipe.
