In brief: Perhaps

St. John's wort (hypericum perforatum) has been shown in clinical trials to be effective for mild to moderate depression and may also help with anxiety.
Rescue remedy, which is a proprietary blend of flower essences also be helpfu. Passionflower (passiflora incarnata) is another natural remedy that has a long history of use as an anxiolytic agent worldwide.

In brief: Depends

If you have mild anxiety, it might help but if it is a more serious anxiety disorder, you may need stronger medications.
In any case consider cognitive behavioral therapy, which can be extremely helpful.
