SLEEPY DROPS FLOWER ESSENCE / TINCTURE
Ingredients: London Dry Gin (40% abv), Lavender, Hops Flower, Valerian Root.
London Dry Gin (the good kind) infused for 8 weeks with home-grown Lavender flower, Valerian root and British Hops to make a wonderfully dusky, rich tincture to help shut that brain up when you need a good nights sleep.
Both Hops and Lavender are known for their anti-anxiety properties, and Valerian is the secret ingredient that knocks you out in any good sleepy tea – its been proven to reduce the time taken to fall asleep, and improve sleep quality – as well as keeping stress levels down and stabilising the central nervous system.
Valerian is best avoided during pregnancy or while breast-feeding. Hops should be avoided if you suffer from estrogen-dependant conditions such as endometriosis, or if you are expecting to have surgery. Don’t use this if you’re about to drive a car or use heavy machinery, and avoid if you already find yourself overly lacking in energy.
Always do a bit of your own research or talk to an expert before using for medical purposes.
Important Note: Dark Times Apothecary offerings are small tokens to help you feel like you have some control, or power in these times where lets be honest – none of us feel like we do. They are intented to help you feel less lost, less alone – more grounded and focussed in your own life, time, situation. These are not intented to replace actual healthcare (I am not currently a trained professional), they are intented to be coping mechanisms to help you get through the day. Also they smell nice.
About Us: All Dark Times Apothecary products are made in very small batches from herbs grown, foraged or carefully selected by me, Dianne Tanner. My knowledge comes from extensive learning and research, or was handed down to me through my family and upbringing in rural New Zealand (via ancestors in England and Scotland). I follow a loose Pagan-Witch path, learning with the seasons and finding things that help me cope with the ever-increasingly difficult times we live in. These are the offerings I am sharing here with you, in the hope that they give you some tools to cope as well. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
Packaging & Shipping: Shipping is available Worldwide. Please note Dark Times is not responsible for any additional charges added at customs. All items will ship within 2 – 3 days of purchase and charge a flat rate for all items. All items are shipped in repurposed packaging to reduce waste where possible.
