Sleep Tonic

A blend of herbs traditionally used to help relax and promote sleep.

This tonic contains herbs which are rich in nervines and are used traditionally to help relax the body and mind. It can be used to aid with your sleep hygiene routine and to help improve sleep quality for people who are struggling to switch off and get to sleep or are suffering with insomnia.

Oatstraw is a gentle and nourishing herb with a restorative and calming action. It is especially useful where there is exhaustion and stress or overwork leading to a ‘tired but wired’ state and inability to sleep due to chronic overstimulation. Oats are highly nourishing, revitalizing, restorative, and rejuvenating, containing nutrients such as Vitamin E & B, iron, manganese, zinc, calcium.

Passionflower contains alkaloids and flavonoids which are thought to be the active constituents, alongside maltol and ethyl-maltol which may be responsible for the sleep-inducing and muscle relaxant activity attributed to passionflower.

Valerian is a nervous system relaxant, sedative and antispasmodic. Valerenic acid and its derivatives are sedative and antispasmodic, they bind GABA receptors, release GABA and inhibit GABA degradation which causes nervous system sedation and smooth & skeletal muscle relaxation.

Hops and Hawthorn are both traditionally used to help promote restful sleep.

This blend includes the herbs: Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata), Valerian (Valeriana officinalis), Humulus lupulus (Hops), Oatstraw (Avena sativa), Crataegus oxycathoides flos (Hawthorn flowers).
