The word calmative is sometimes used to refer to agents - including natural substances such as herbs, oils, or essences, or conventional pharmaceutical drugs, that act as a sedative.

'Calmative' is not a standard medical term so is not included in all medical or biology dictionaries. However, the term 'sedative' is often included and is generally defined as a drug or other agent that has a calming effect. That is it relives anxiety, tension and distress.
