Ingredients: Hops Oil (Sweet almond oil, British hops flower), Boundary oil (Sweet almond oil, Yarrow flower and leaf), Protection Oil (Organic olive oil, Rosemary leaf), Thyme flower, Thyme essential oil.
A mega-blend of Hops oil, Boundary oil and Protection oil – set with a Thyme flower from the Dark Times Herb Garden, and a few drops of thyme essential oil.
Hops oil calms, promoting rest and restoration. Yarrow-filled Boundary Oil gives the strength to build a strong wall between you and outside negative energies, and Rosemary-laden Protection Oil protects those boundaries. A sprig of Thyme flower makes things look beautiful, and a few drops of Thyme essential oil give an earthy, grounding scent. Thyme supports respiratory health and wellness – this doesn’t have enough in it to do that, but the thought remains.
Use: When you’re feeling overwhelmed by the outside world, news and energy of 2020 roll in a circular motion on each temple, then deeply massage in. Close your eyes, take a deep breath in and out. Do the same on each wrist, drawing deep circular motions as you take deep soothing breaths. Imagine a big strong wall around you keeping the bullshit out – breathe in the soothing, grounding scent of thyme and feel grateful for your healthy lungs. Lovely stuff.
Thyme is best avoided when pregnant, although this oil contains a very, very tiny amount. Yarrow and Rosemary are also best avoided when pregnant. I feel sorry for pregnant people every time I have to write this part of every product.
Just to stress – this holds utterly no medical properties and won’t cure the Covid. 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.
