Ashwagandha eases stress and can improve the quality and duration of your sleep. This adaptogenic herb can also have a positive effect on increasing your physical and mental resilience to stress, and relieving any tension and anxiety.
Vervain is a nerve tonic, meaning it supports, strengthens and nourishes your nervous system. This helps to reduce stress and promotes deeper, more restorative sleep. On another note, it can also ease digestive discomfort.
Valerian root is one of the most relaxing, sedating herbs out there, ideal for anyone suffering from insomnia. It works to reduce tension and calm anxiety and overexcitability. If your inability to sleep is down to pain or muscle tension, valerian can also help with that thanks to its analgesic (pain relieving) and antispasmodic properties.
Chamomile is another mildly sedative herb, which promotes relaxation and sends a wave of calm and sleepiness over you. It has a soothing and calming effect on both the nervous and digestive systems.
Passionflower is a sedative that works to regularise your sleeping pattern, and has a positive effect on soothing stress and anxiety. It also helps to calm your nerves, restlessness and irritability.
Lavender promotes sleepiness and works to relieve anxiety and nervous tension. It also has a soothing effect on headaches.
Nutmeg is traditionally used in Ayurveda (Traditional Indian Medicine) to promote restful sleep. It has sleep-inducing effects and combats symptoms of anxiety. Nutmeg also has a warming and soothing effect on the digestive system.

Our Tinctures are alcohol based. Using alcohol enables us to effectively extract a wide range of constituents from plants. It also means that tinctures keep well - alcohol prevents the growth of bacteria and inhibits enzyme activity. Tinctures are easy to take and to carry around with you as you only need small amounts (generally of 2-3 teaspoons per day). If you cannot or would not like to take alcohol in your medicine, please consider our herbal supplements or herbal teas within the same range and/or consult one of our medical herbalists so that they can devise a bespoke prescription for you.
