Everyone has their own bedtime ritual. Some we partake in to resist the pull of sleep, others we cultivate to prepare us. Underworld Tonic is formulated as an ally to initiate you into a place of rest and renewal.
A small dose supports the necessary unraveling from the day’s productive work and encourages a reflective transition into the realm of sleep, where we can turn away from the news of the world to steep in the dreamtime of the cosmos.
This is not a potion to promote drowsiness, nor is it here to knock you out. It is an ally in your transition from wakefulness to sleep, and a guide through the depths of the underworld.
“The dread and resistance which every natural human being experiences when it comes to delving too deeply into himself is, at bottom, the fear of the journey to Hades.” - C.G. Jung
To use: before bed, 10-20 drops for a light initiation or 1-2 droppers full to encourage restful sleep.
Note: As the quality of sleep varies for every person, the dosage of this potion can also vary from person to person. Experiment with what works for you, keeping in mind that we do not recommend taking more than 3 droppers full (~3ml) before bed.

I like my purchase, thank you. As a consumer it would be helpful to have the recommended dosage included on the label so I don't have to refer back to the online listing. Hope you are well! :)
I got exactly what I wanted in this tincture. The bottle provided a potent punch that helped me roll into bed and fall into a graceful slumber. No complaints other than I want to try the other products. May I also mention that the bottle itself looks good displayed on my shelf? I look forward to having this handy when an odd, insomnia-filled night strikes.
