Info: 50 ml Tincture
This formulation combines three natural herbs with a long history of traditional medicinal usage as calming agents, and recent research has demonstrated that combinations of at least two of them work well together. It can be used either as mild sedative during the day to stave off anxiety, or to help get to sleep, if you are being troubled by your thoughts or stress.
