Herbs that directly act upon and the nervous system are nervines. They can act as stimulants, relaxants or have a tonic and restorative effect on the central nervous system, making nervines a sort of "catch-all" category. Many of the nervines contain volatile essential oils.

Due to the scope of the nature of nervines, easily accessible herbs such as Basil, Chamomile, or Lemon Balm can be easily used in effective applications.
