Sleepytime tea helps my mom with anxiety and I believe yoga helps with relaxation & mental clarity.

Its a shame he refuses to try medication. Anxiety responds well to medication and often a few months of meds allows for enough relaxation for talk therapy/ behaviour therapy to work.

RE: Social Anxiety/calm/relaxive herbs

I make a tea of skullcap, passionflower leaves, mint and rose petals for anxiety/depression/lack of calm. The skullcap has worked for me for years. Passionflower leaf is a calming sedative, very gentle. The mint and rose petals are for pleasant taste and color.
Good health, Jeanine
