Lavender-Free Sleepy Drops Tincture


You know when you’re lying awake at night and you get more and more annoyed with yourself because you can’t get to sleep and then you can’t sleep because you are annoyed at yourself and it goes on and on and suddenly its 3am and you have to get up in 4 hours for work and its the worst? Sleepy drops should knock that nonsense on the head. A few drops in a cup of something lovely (double it up with a good sleepy tea) before bed or when you can feel the cycle begin, take a deep breath, and away you go. Valerian and hops are a winning combo when it comes to helping you to get a more balanced sleeping pattern in place – this version is free of lavender, for those out there who are mildly allergic or just don’t like the scent. It’s a thing! 

Available in 10ml dropper bottle

Not recommended if pregnant or breastfeeding.




Ingredients: London Dry Gin (40% abv), Hops Flower, Valerian Root, Chamomile Flower.

Use: Add 5 – 10 drops to your herbal tea or a small glass of water before bed and away you go. Combine with sleepy oil or balm to really knock you out.

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. Labels peel off the bottles easily to allow for recycling, or get in touch to send your bottles back for re-use.
