Full details & directions below. 




Ingredients: Sweet Almond Oil, Lavender Flower, Hop Flower, Chamomile Flower, Beeswax.

Organic Sweet Almond Oil is infused for 5 weeks with Lavender flowers grown and harvested in my own small garden in North London, Organic Chamomile and British Hops, seperately for maximum infusion. These are then blended together, and warmed with just enough carefully sourced British Beeswax to create a soft, solid balm for easy application.

Use: Keep beside the bed for those times you can’t sleep. Rub a small amount into your temples and wrists before bed, enjoy the soothing scent of lavender and away you go to Bedfordshire. Both Hops and Lavender are known for their anti-anxiety properties – perfect for easing the mind before bed or in times of stress. 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.

Always do a bit of your own research or talk to an expert before using for medical purposes. Maybe don’t use if you’re about to drive a car or fly an aeroplane.

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.
