Skullcap, Valerian and Passion Flower for Sleep and Anxiety
Skullcap and Valerian have become quite well known herbs for their efficacy, especially with sleep problems and for the relaxation of the mind.
Skullcap is a native North American herb and grows especially within the southern states of the USA. Skullcap quiets nervous tension, eases muscle tension and spasms. Skullcap also induces sleep without strongly sedating or stupefying, and it may help to lower elevated blood pressure. Skullcap is also used in the treatment of a wide range of nervous conditions including insomnia, hysteria and anxiety. A lot of clinical studies are still being carried out on this herb, but within complementary medicine it has been used for many years, especially for sleep and relaxation.
Valerian is also a renowned herb used for easing sleep problems. It is one of the best gentle and harmless herbal sleeping remedies; it enhances the natural body process of slipping into sleep and making the stresses of the day recede. It is a herb known to help provide relief of insomnia, stress related anxiety and nervous restlessness. Valerian is also particularly recommended for people who do not need as much sleep as they once did; it also eases lying awake in bed, ensuring that it becomes a restful and relaxing experience.
Passion Flower is another herb known to produce mild sedative and anti-anxiety effects. It is a on-addictive herb to promote relaxation, and helps to settle edgy nerves. Passion flower grows from the same vine that produces the Passion fruit. You can also make a hot tea from Passion Flowers, buy it in capsule form, or purchase Passion Flower Extract in concentrated form for dosages.
Either of these herbs can be taken as a single tincture or even as a tincture blend like the Fushi Sleep Tincture, which contains both the Skullcap, Valerian as ÿwell as chamomile and oat seed.
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
