A Natural Alternative to Xanax for Flight Anxiety

a natural alternative to xanax for flight anxiety

I never really wanted to take Xanax, but my flight anxiety is torturous.

I was so anxious about flying that I avoided it completely for several years. But apparently that's one of the worst thing you can do because it allows the fear to fester. 

So when my friend offered me some of her Xanax to help get me through a necessary transcontinental flight, I graciously accepted. The Xanax got me through the flight, but I didn't like the way it made me feel groggy, lethargic, and unmotivated. Not really how I wanted to start my holiday. 

I started looking for other natural options.

Some people swear by essential oils, so I tried organic marjoram oil and black pepper oil which are known for taming anxiety. It worked a little bit, but it just wasn't a match against my extreme fear of flying. I needed something stronger, more powerful and effective.

Desperate for a miracle, I noticed the woman sitting next to me spray something into her mouth, and then closed her eyes as if she was going into a meditative state. She was like a God send.

Her energy was calm and welcoming, so I felt like I could strike a conversation and luckily for me, she was open to sharing.

That's when I found Kava Kava.

The little spray bottle was filled with kava extract. Kava is a natural herb that's ultra calming and relieves stress and anxiety. She was so generous to let me try it, and I graciously accepted, and it worked! It's called 1Hour Break®, and it can quickly relieve flight-induced panic attacks. It will change how the world handles panic attacks. 


1Hour Break® is a California-based company providing all-natural remedies for anxiety and panic attacks. They’ve spent the last few years perfecting a breakthrough sublingual tincture made from highly concentrated extracts of organic Kava Kava, Passion flower, Lemon balm, and Lobelia herbs.

Taking 1Hour Break® to relieve anxiety, panic or flight-induced panic attacks is simple. Anytime you feel anxious, all you do is spray 5 sprays (about 1ml) of 1Hour Break® beneath your tongue, wait ten seconds, and then swallow. Because it is absorbed underneath the tongue, it bypasses the digestive system, so the effects are felt immediately. Kava Kava, sourced from the South Pacific, is the main ingredient and has been proven safe and therapeutic for relieving anxiety. It works by binding onto various receptors in the amygdala that regulate feelings of fear and anxiety, and in turn promotes calmness, relaxation, and a sense of well-being. It’s like getting a big hug from Mother Nature herself.

I ditched the Xanax and upgraded to 1Hour Break®.

 After just five sprays, I instantly noticed a numbing sensation under my tongue and felt my pulse slow down and my mind got that familiar calming sensation associated with Xanax. It didn’t affect my ability to think or do tasks but it did lower my heart rate noticeably and that alone slowed my breathing, cleared my mind and after 10 minutes I laughed at how dumb I looked during my panic attack- because everything suddenly felt right again. I went into this a skeptic but came out totally satisfied. I would recommend 1Hour Break® to anyone that needs anxiety relief from flying or otherwise.
