Ingredients: Sweet Almond Oil, British Hop Flower.
Use: Keep beside the bed for those times you can’t sleep. Shake well – you want all the magic golden dust-like lupulins that have settled to be mixed well because thats the good stuff – allow a few drops to fall into your hands and massage into your temples, chest and wrists before bed. Massage in, breathing deep and away you go to sleepy town. Alternatively add a generous few drops to your before-bed bath ritual for a soothing, deep relaxing soak.
Hops have been proven in studies to provide relief for insomnia, stress, anxiety, restlessness and irritability.
Sweet Almond Oil is wonderfully nourishing for the skin, Fast absorption means you won’t leave oily hand marks all over the place as well, bonus.
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 if you’re about to drive a car or fly an aeroplane, 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.
