Self Love Elixir


We all have healing that we need to do in our hearts, no matter where we come from nor our life experiences. Heart pain does not discriminate; it’s one of the most common human conditions we all share. This elixir was created out of a deep need for healing, especially in these tumultuous times globally. This is a slowly solar infused tincture of traditionally used heart plant allies of rose, motherwort, hawthorn, linden, blue vervain, holy basil, wood betony, skullcap, borage, lavender and a touch of vanilla bean. These specific plants have been chosen for their healing properties to help reduce anxiety, PTSD, grief, self esteem issues and all matters of the heart that affect mental wellness.

Rose is our #1 go to plant for times of grief, trauma and stagnant emotions. It helps us to find balance within ourselves, opening the heart, allowing us to be vulnerable to feel these feelings. It can bring strength and empowerment, uplift suffering, anxiety, anger, insecurity, grief & depression and reignite our inner light to lift our spirit.

Hawthorn is known for its mightiness & power to normalize the heart, physically bringing balance into the tissues by simultaneously strengthening any weakness and reducing hyperactive states of stress within the cardiovascular system. This can also apply to the stability of our mental health when matters of the heart feel uneasy & disrupted. It can help in restoring strength & confidence once again when life feels vulnerable,  assisting with reducing living in fear.

Linden is a tree who wears heart shaped leaves; it releases tension in the musculature and circulatory systems, softening tension and lifting worry. This powerful plant ally is used to improve sleep, lessen anxiety, widen blood vessels & lower blood pressure, reinstating a sense of calm.

Blue vervain is used for those who feel tension in and around the chest, shoulders and neck. It helps to promote a sense of well-being by moving stored up energy in the head and shoulders and dispersing it down throughout the body, which can be beneficial for mania & ruminating thoughts. It can be of great aid when we are exhausted and incredibly wired from stress and needing a calm, manageable & restorative place, helping to move through melancholy by warming the heart when sadness feels all consuming.

Holy basil is connected with the throat & heart chakras, making it an amazing plant ally in supporting the voice, to express grief & needs in order to move on. Beneficial in times of feeling choked up or having a hard time expressing traumatizing experiences, it helps the heart and throat work in unison, bringing more ease of releasing these thoughts that weigh the spirit down, clearing unwanted/negative energy, while helping to calm and restore the nervous system.

Motherwort is a well known remedy for the heart, working on all the vasculature within the circulatory system, relieving tension associated with hypertensive states while acting as a tonic to the heart. We turn to this plant ally during times of weakness within the heart space, as it can calm unease and anxiety associated with turbulent emotions, specifically when felt in the physical body (palpitations and tension in the chest).

Wood Betony is a slightly relaxing herb that assists to anchor a person into their physical body. Disassociation commonly occurs after a traumatic event when the mind or spirit may have partially left the physical body in order to protect itself from harm. It’s also an incredible ally when the body feels consumed by a dizzying sobbing grief during the physical breakdown of uncontrollable tears. It’s also used to bring courage in times of weakness, restoring strength & empowerment within the solar plexus.

Lavender works to calm unrest by bringing our presence back into the moment. It can also help to release pent up emotions while allowing energy to move and flow through the body, moving it up and outward.

Borage is used to gladden the heart and lift the spirit. Roman soldiers consumed wine of Borage before stepping into battle to fortify the heart with courage and bravery to step through a time of upheaval.

Skullcap is a relaxing nervine, doing wonders for the nervous system and brain. An excellent plant ally in times of anxiety when the brain will not stop with racing thoughts. During times of grief it can help to quiet and slow down the thoughts so we can focus on the present. This can be incredibly useful when such thoughts or recirculating traumatic memories prevent us from sleeping.

Vanilla bean has been used for centuries as an antioxidant and cognitive enhancing agent. It contains chemicals called vanilloids that activate receptors in a similar way to capsaicin, which is well known to reduce inflammation and improve mental performance.  Vanilla has been shown to reduce depression and anxiety in certain individuals. It is suspected that inflammation, which is a result of a stressed out brain, causes the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Vanilla’s anti-inflammatory properties reduce these cytokines, causing relief. Known for its rich taste and smell, vanilla is shown to have a positive effect on mood, creating the perfect environment for falling into a deep, restful sleep.

Prepared by maceration in dark rum. Compared to other methods, alcohol helps extract nearly all active constituents from a herb yielding stronger tinctures that require a lower dose to attain beneficial effects. Alcohol eliminates the growth of bacteria and mold while preserving the valuable constituents resulting in a much longer shelf life. Take 1 dropper full daily to maintain wellness, 3 droppers per day at onset or in more intense times of crisis.

50ml amber glass apothecary dropper bottle.
