*This listing is for one 2oz or half oz amber glass recyclable bottle. Choose from dropdown.
Are you like me, tossing & turning at night due to nerve pain & racing thoughts? Or do you struggle with insomnia, night terrors, body & mind stress, can’t turn your brain off? Or perhaps you’re needing rest while healing from an injury or recovering from a cold. Maybe you’re burnt out, or just way overdue for some Deep. Peaceful. Rest. This offering would be great for meditation work and as a general pain relief ally when you’re needing to relax those nerves and muscles.
Sleep is absolutely crucial to the proper function of our Circadian Rhythm, which directly affects our cycles, our hormones & our entire wellbeing. Without deep sleep we’re naturally more vulnerable to trauma, stress & illness. Sleep is when all our bodily systems rebuilds & renews.
With this Elixir, I welcome you to Enter the Cave ~ a warm space where day fades to darkness, where our minds & bodies can peacefully rest & rejuvenate. Allies I’ve relied on for many years to calm my often overworked body & mind. This brew brings together herbs I ritually Wildcrafted in the Cascade mountains ~ California Poppy, Skullcap & Sitka Valerian root are combined with Passionflower, Hops & Turmeric root. These are some of the most powerful sedative herbs known, specifically for pain & stress relief & encouraging deep sleep.
This elixir is a wonderful pain/sleep elixir for any human who feels they can gain support from these allies. Tho many happen to be wonderful uterine antispasmodics, making this offering fantastic for those who have painful sleep during their Moontimes. Sciatica pain anyone?🙋🏻♀️
🌀 One ally that makes this brew incredibly strong is the Wildcrafted Sitka Valerian I harvested in the mountains. She is native to the Pacific Northwest & only grows wild. She grows in both our mountains subalpine meadows & moist rainforests. Sitka is the strongest Valerian in the world that only grows in the wild, 10x stronger than officinalis (what all mainstream Valerian tinctures are made with). Folks who get ‘wired’ on officinalis typically won’t with Sitka. Her deeply sedative affects make her amazing at helping ease pain, restless sleep, insomnia, night terrors, healing from an injury or uterine cramps. Her medicine is wise, strong & endless.
🌀 The lupulin in Hops helps induce sleep & quiets the nervous system. Similar to passionflower, she’s been well researched & works by modulating GABA activity. Studies shown amazing effects for falling asleep when combined w/Valerian. Hops sedative & anti-inflammatory properties make her wonderful at combatting nerve pain & anxiety.
🌀I ndigenous People’s of the NW rely heavily on California Poppy for centuries. She’s sedative & antispasmodic, known for helping release tension, nerve & muscular pains. As a nervine she has powerful calming energy, helping ease insomnia, menstrual cramps, intestinal spasms & helping us sleep while battling illness.
🌀 Skullcap is a sacred, relaxing nervine known as one of the best sleep allies. Thought of as a “nightcap for the skull”. She provides neuroprotective effects while you sleep, as your immune system renews itself. She’s sedative, hypnotic & antispasmodic, helping relieve pain & discomfort of mind & body. Also enhanced when combined with Valerian.
🌀 Passionflower is such a gorgeous, exotic nervine incredible at helping calm the mind & relieve racing thoughts. She has sedative properties & contains a compound called chrysin that promotes undisturbed sleep with the ability to help reduce stress & anxiety within the body. Often enhanced when paired with Hops.
🌀 Fresh organic turmeric root joins this blend with her antioxidant & anti-inflammatory properties. Her compound (Curcumin) enhances serotonin & increases the production of dopamine, helping reduce stress & allow for a relaxed nights rest.
🌀 Did you know raw honey helps your brain release melatonin? Raw PNW honey also adds a nourishing sweetness to this powerhouse of a pain & sleep ally, soothing you into the darkness of a cozy cave.
Sweet Dreams! 😴

Like many others - I am restless, mentally spinning and a light sleeper. Since welcoming this offering into my life I reach for it almost on a nightly basis. A few drops, to fall asleep quickly if I have an early morning. A full dropper for when I am feeling low to ease mental pain and needing the release of deep sleep. Easy does it on this, as it is as efficient as it reads. Thank you, yet again
I can’t even begin to describe what a welcoming change this offering has been for me. I am a light and restless sleeper and from the first night I used this I felt so renewed. I now have long uninterrupted bouts of deep sleep, if I do wake I almost instantly fall back asleep. I am so grateful to have found this. Thank you for creating such magical things for us all.
Best and most effective natural sleep aid I've ever taken! I've had trouble sleeping my entire life, trouble falling asleep, waking up throughout the night, and intense vivid dreams and nightmares that kept me from actually falling into a deep sleep. When I take this, I sleep soundly until I wake up in the morning, it doesn't make me feel groggy or affect me throughout the day, and I still have dreams at night, but they seem to be calmer. Love the taste too!
The first night I used this I took 7 drops and slept like I'd taken some kind of narcotic. I actually bought it for my partner who was working night shifts at the time and struggled sleeping during the day. Works like magic, and aids in deeply relaxing the body (perhaps that's just because the sleep is improved when using this brew). We only use between 3-5 drops depending on restlessness and other things like menstrual pain or stress.
Enjoy in a cup of tea. Works it’s magick all night - really appreciate this creation. Thank you!
