Lift Your Spirits - Bear Hug Potion 🐻

bear hug potion recipe by wunder workshop with calming herbs

As months go, January can be one of the longest. Short hours of daylight, plus the cold and gloomy weather, are a combo designed to keep us in wintering mode. We suggest leaning into this hibernation phase to restore and replenish our energy levels, safe in the knowledge that the world is turning in your favour soon. 

To maintain positive spirits, there's also herbal help on hand - allies that will support serotonin and dopamine levels when their typical release triggers are low in supply.

It is important to maintain balance and flow in tough times, so please be aware of yourself and others. Remember - connection, communication and movement are also powerful ways to stay positive and lift your spirits. If you are feeling low, tell someone!  

Why Bear Hug?

Our Bear Hug tincture is a blend of folk herbs alchemised for calm in anxious moments. It is the reassuring embrace of a big bear hug that you can sink into and feel the protection within. 

It contains soothing lavender, the relaxing nature of verbena, nervine calming oat tops, and stress-reducing lemon balm. These biodynamically grown herbs are purposefully blended with mimulus flower essence for a sense of calm and ease, a bear hug for mind & soul.

Mimulus flower essence is for every day fears and anxiety. It is your floral shield to confront the anxieties which you can pinpoint the origin, making precious petals more resilient and positive minded.

Why Goddess Tea?

This floral and herbal infusion is super smooth, with a wholesome and sweet finish. It is the perfect addition to this potion recipe for the delicate flavours that combine with the Bear Hug tincture. 

It is also highly nourishing with yarrow and nettle, both of which are renowned for their ability to soothe and heal wounds as well as benefitting our moods. Their nutritious leaves are dense with compounds that enrich us from within - it is a herbal tonic that can be consumed at any time of the day, month or year!
