“St. John’s Wort loves to grow in the sun, the hotter the better…. it brings a lot of the energy and warmth of the sun into your own body- it is very noticeable. It’s not just an antidepressant, it actually can warm your psyche, make you feel more comfortable, more relaxed, and loosen up the mental joints that are stiff from the cold and dark. It is a wonderful remedy.” -Matthew Becker

I revel in the coming of fall and sink in the chance to regain a sense of balance. The equinox is an exact balance between light and dark, day and night. It’s another chance to compose our bodies and minds before we enter the cold, long, dark months of the winter.


Nature is giving us permission and allowing us to slow down and to let go. Fall is a time to lessen physical and emotional attachments, to let go of what no longer serves us so that we can go into winter carrying only what we truly need. 


St John’s Wort is recommended for “nervous griefs”, like melancholia, nerve pain, and numbness. SJW is a trophorestorative nervine- meaning it works as a tonic to deeply balance and nourish the nervous system. This herbal ally is amazing for those who are in the dark, living a shadow life- it opens the “emotional windows” and allows the sunlight to pour in.


Lemon Balm is a deep nervine that improves cognitive function, uplifts the mood, and relaxes the body and mind. SJW and lemon balm work synergistically for the treatment of seasonal affective disorder.


Rose Petals is added for broken hearts, sadness, and to help move through grief and heaviness. 


Marigold Flower Essence helps the body process and release 
stuck energy. It enhances one's ability to 'hear' on all levels, and to be open to other possibilities.


To use⟶ take drop doses throughout the day to keep a vibrant energy, and a calm state of being OR for a more medicinal dose take by the dropper full up to 6x a day.

 …take in the lightness of living…
