Deep Sleep - Valerian Root Tincture

Deep Sleep - Valerian Root Tincture

Valerian has been used as a medicinal herb since at least the time of ancient Greece and Rome. Hippocrates described its properties, and Galen later prescribed it as a remedy for insomnia and stress. John Gerard's Herbal states that his contemporaries found Valerian "excellent for those burdened and for such as be troubled with croup, cough and other like convulsions, and also for those that are bruised with falls." He says that the dried root was valued as a medicine by the poor in the north of England and the south of Scotland, so that "no broth or pottage or physical meats be worth anything if Setewale [Valerian] be not there."

The seventeenth century astrological botanist Nicholas Culpeper thought the plant was "under the influence of Mercury, and therefore hath a warming faculty." Therefore, it is good to bring warmth to both the digestive system and those suffering from poor circulation who tend to run cold. He recommended both herb and root, and said that "the root boiled with liquorice, raisons and anise seed is good for those troubled with cough.

In the words of the wizard behind the tinctures: "Inside my small laboratory, I make organic small batch herbal tinctures in accordance to the laws of the moon. I have refined my process to a six week period of intention and focus. I use laboratory glassware for extraction, a crystallization technique for higher purity and an incubation period for evolution and potency. 

Consciousness exists throughout the body. By taking in tinctures over time, the refined and harmonized biomass has become part of me and in turn, I have become more refined and harmonized. I focus myself into these small batches and experience my greatest joy sharing the health and cultivation inside each bottle."
