Deep Sleep: Tea Blend
herbal support for deep, deserved rest :::
This is the tea version* of our sleep elixir because if you are unable to sleep and desperately need to, then any medicine to assist sleeping becomes the most precious thing in the world... (*don’t fall under the misconception that teas aren’t as powerful or effective, if the herbs are fresh + grown well they can be very potent!)
So we are emboldened to have been able to bring so many great sleep herbs together in this blend. The result is five amazing sleep allies blended to encourage relaxation in the body, help with insomnia and improve patterns of deep sleep for better rest and recovery. All of these herbs combined will also greatly help in reducing anxiety, but be aware that there are some powerful sedatives in the mix (Passionflower, Skullcap, Hops) so DO NOT take this to reduce anxiety during the day if you need to drive, take care of children or perform at work meetings etc, as it may cause drowsiness. Make a cup or pot of Deep Sleep tea to sip before going to bed when in need of sleep assistance, then let Skullcap and friends work their magic, taking away those swirling thoughts, To-Do-Lists and seemingly endless worries and instead offering up clear space for your deep, deserved rest.
Recommended Use: Steep 1-2 teaspoons in boiling water for 15 minutes and drink half an hour before going to bed or keep by the bed during the night if sleeplessness occurs. Add honey if too bitter for taste.
DO NOT USE DURING PREGNANCY. Use with caution while breastfeeding, not recommended to take while feeding a newborn.
CAUTION: This tea blend contains sedative herbs – do not take before driving, operating machinery or needing to function at a high level.
NOTE: These herbs works with your nervous system and are most effective if you’re needing sleep support due to mental stress or nervous dysregulation. If the tea isn’t working for you, experiment with a stronger dose steeped for longer (up to an hour or overnight) otherwise it may be indicative that your sleeplessness/insomnia is rooted in another cause like thyroid imbalance - something to explore... Remember that making lists, less screen time and dismantling capitalism may also assist in better sleep ;)

Please remember: while these plant medicines are crafted with intentions to support you through times of trauma or stress, they are not meant to replace community support or a good doctor/therapist. If you need help, please seek it. You deserve it.
What is Mutual Aid? Who am I "paying forward" to?
In our attempt to make plant medicines more accessible for all, Seed Medicine Garden sends regular free medicine donations to communities as needs arise. In the past this has included Indigenous activists, youth leaders and trans youth, as well as homeless single mothers, refugees and members of the disabled community.
When you "pay forward" 1 or 2 products, you will still receive one (or selected quantity) of your chosen medicine as well as donating the credit for 1 or 2 products to go towards our herbal mutual aid projects.
There seems to be an increasing call for plant support through these times and we are continually seeking pathways to those who need it most. Please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org if you or a community you know is without financial means but needing herbal care.
