Brahmi, gotu kola, and rosemary infused into organic vodka and honey (elixir)
This formula is designed to stimulate mental sharpness and presence with herbs that are nourishing to brain and nervous system function, and thus supportive of greater clarity, focus, and attention. Brain fog banishing!
The bitter taste of brahmi is stimulating and energizing. Brahmi is a life-rejuvenating herb which is brain-nourishing and awakening. Taken every day, brahmi sharpens the brain’s capacity to store and recall information. Brain inflammation leads to mental slowness or fogginess—brahmi helps to reduce inflammation, thereby sharpening our minds. Brahmi also boosts the production of serotonin and dopamine, two neurotransmitters (the chemical and electrical signals nerves use to communicate) that lead to reduced anxiety and a sense of peace.
Gotu kola is another brain-supportive herb traditionally used as a memory tonic. Over time the use of gotu kola increases neural density, supporting greater connectivity in our brains, and thus a greater capacity for memory, learning, and imagination.
Rosemary is another herb which supports healthy brain function, improves memory, and brings clarity and focus. Rosemary is fragrant and uplifting, another plant whose anti-inflammatory qualities help dispel brain fog. Rosemary brings more oxygen into the body, feeding our brains and blood.
This formula, taken over time, can help to improve your mind’s capacity for true attention and presence. Another component of this work is through dreaming and lucid dreaming. Brahmi, gotu kola, and rosemary are all incredible guides to the dream world, expanding our unconscious just as surely as our waking lives. These herbs are most effective taken tonically, meaning every day over a period of time. 1/3 to ½ dropper full on your tongue or in tea or water. If you are interested in using this tincture for dream work, take just a few drops before bed.
