• 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! 😴

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!
This product is so amazing. I’m a maker and sometimes work late into the evening, which can lead to less than restful sleep and very unwelcome early waking the next morning. When I know I need a good night’s rest and that my brain isn’t likely to let me get a full night’s sleep, I take a few drops of this magic stuff and wake up rested and ready for a productive day. I’m so grateful to have this! Thank you!
This is amazing. I have quite a bit of trouble sleeping, and then staying asleep, so I am always looking for a nice, soothing, gentle thing to help me. This is it! I slept well, woke up refreshed, and do not feel groggy or off like a lot of sleep aids tend to do. I definitely felt the pain relief in this offering. It felt gentle and soothing and comforting, like a soft fluffy blanket. It was not overwhelming and overly numbing - just enough to take the edge off and provide a bit of a "buffer" from the outside world. And then the sleep! It was nice and restful, and while I did wake up during the night (because of a coughing outside influence, not because I was having trouble staying asleep), I fell asleep and slept soundly within seconds of waking from the interruption. The whole time I felt as if I was in a safe, comfortable place, which definitely allowed me to sleep soundly. I can see this working really well for meditation as well, as never once did I feel like I had taken a heavy sedative, nor felt "forced" to sleep, like a lot of sleep products tend to do. I only felt destressed and "clear". My mind usually wanders and I think a lot when I am trying to fall asleep, but with this tincture I felt all of the stress and anxiety melt away until I was left in a soothing state conductive to rest. Very nice!
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!
