• ENTERING THE CAVE • SLEEP & PAIN RELIEF ELIXIR •
*This listing is for one 2oz matte black recyclable bottle.
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 alongside an Elder. She is the strongest Valerian in the world. Check a few posts back of a basket with roots to learn ALL about this Sitka Valerian I used in this offering.
🌀 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! 😴

I was skeptical a tincture could help me sleep. But even with just a few drops, I sleep soundly until my alarm goes off. This is perfect for nights when my mind won't settle or when I really need several good hours of sleep. Highly recommend!
This bottle is a miracle worker!!!! I have insomnia and I have a lot of pain from a shoulder injury, so not a great combination to get a great night sleep. I take about 5 drops of this a few nights a week, and I get the best sleep ever. This lives up to its name because I feel like I'm in a comforting cave to sleep. Highly recommend this magical little brew!!!
This elixir is amazing. I have insomnia and struggle to fall asleep and stay asleep. When things are busy at work, it's so much worse. I've been using this elixir every other night for about 2 weeks now, and I have had some of the most restful sleep on the nights that I've used this. It's like taking a huge breath in and letting everything go. My mind literally just relaxes. Someone mentioned in another review about relaxing into a cave and honestly that is exactly what it feels like. You're shielded and buffered from 'everything' else. And because I've been sleeping so well, the normal aches and pains from not sleeping well have gone away. You really don't realize how achy you are until it goes away. I really hope that this becomes part of a permanent product offered year round.
Taking this elixir before bedtime helped relieve some severe pain I was having recently, and helped sooth me into a restful sleep. I will definitely be relying on this ally to get to sleep when pain is keeping me awake.
I was very excited to bring home this delicious bottle of dreams.
By day I am a massage therapist whos hands, wrists and knees are often aching, especially towards the end of my work week.
I have only used this product once, 7 drops and I was ecstatic with the results!
within 5 minutes of taking the drops I found myself relaxing into a soft, mossy feeling cave with reduced aches and a big smile on my face. It felt like coming home to the smell of dirt and moss in the rain after a long day. Very relaxed and I dont even remember falling asleep.
I did wake up in the middle of the night to go pee and I almost tripped over my own feet with how groggy my head was haha!
It wasn't difficult going back to sleep (normally it is) and upon waking I was not as tired or drained as I normally find myself in the morning. I felt grounded and ready to finish off my last day of work.
As for smell and taste, it has Valerian in it which over powers most of the other plants in the brew. I love the smell and taste of it for some reason but for those that are not a very big fan of the pungent aroma not to worry! It's a very subtle taste that goes down smooth and isnt too harsh.
I was also very happy to see how little of the product is required for a dose, meaning I will have lots to last me through the winter until the next hopeful release!
