1 customer review
Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating

A gin-based herbal tincture to use as part of your daily practice to move forward and prepare for the Next Big Thing. Add a few drops to your tea or water, or directly under the tongue each day to enjoy before or during your daily meditation, journal session or brainstorming party in times of stagnation, when you’re feeling stuck, if you are working or building towards something big – or when you just have nothing going on, and want some inspiration or movement.

Lavender offers you the chance to rest and restore, bringing calm and peace. Sage unblocks and clears space for something new, making way for inspiration and new growth. Thyme combines both with energy that calms whilst gathering strength that leads to action, and allowing you to find direction when you otherwise feel lost. The result is a slightly spicy tincture that refreshes, clears and soothes.

Available in 10ml dropper bottle.

Full details & directions below. Not recommended if pregnant or breastfeeding.




Ingredients:  Gin (40% abv), Lavender, Sage, Thyme.

Use: Add 5 – 10 drops to your herbal tea or a small glass of water OR directly under your tongue followed by a glass of water before your personal daily practice – meditation, journaling or brainstorming – during times of stagnation or feeling stuck, or when you are working on something new and need support through the process.

Sage is best avoided if pregnant as it is a uterine simulant. Thyme is best avoided if pregnant, living with epilepsy or high blood pressure. Lavender is fine unless you have a known allergy – and you will know.

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.

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.

    This has been by my side for Virgo season 2020 (my sign and a time in life that’s happened to have so much upheaval and potential opportunities) – great for aiding in clearing your mind and centring racing thoughts
