PREPARING HERBAL ESSENCE / TINCTURE
Ingredients: Gin (40% abv), Lavender, Sage, Thyme.
A spicy, earthy blend of sage, thyme and lavender infused in London Dry Gin for six weeks, for use during meditation, rest and restoration – days or times when you are preparing to make your next move. For those working on a plan, an idea, or waiting for inspiration to strike. Turning inward to build energy, ready to crack on.
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.
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 go mad.
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.
