LEMON BALM ESSENCE / TINCTURE
Ingredients: Gin (40% abv), Lemon Balm.
Use: Add 5 – 10 drops to your herbal tea or a small glass of water in in the mornings before work, throughout a busy day as needed or before bed to help calm you to sleep. In general a great little side-kick during times of stress and overwhelm.
Avoid Lemon Balm if you are have a thyroid condition, or if you are on perscription medication for mental health conditions.
Lemon Balm is not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
If you are on medication for mental health issues, please do some research to see if Lemon Balm is right for you to use alongside your medication. Note that in this tincture, the dosage will be very low, but it is best to check with your doctor or do some research to make sure it will not interfere with your specific medication if you are unsure.
This tincture might cause some drowsiness, so please use with caution if you are driving or operating heavy machinery.
Always do a bit of your own research or talk to an expert if you have any underlying health issues or are on medication that these herbs may interfere with.
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.
