Hold the Line Tincture
When I first made this remedy it had a stand-in name: "Fill in the Perforations & Speak Up" meaning this is a remedy for boundaries, for the times they (and maybe we) feel perforated and punctured, like when you hold a St. John's Wort leaf up to the sun and you see little bursts of light popping through. It's not that we want to keep the light out but more that we want to have a say about when things pop into our zones. And that we don't want our energy, our life-force just streaming out at any moment.
A blend of St. John's Wort, Motherwort, Blue Vervain, and Yarrow, it's a blend for boundaries, for sadness and grief, for holding your line when you need to, for sopping up the wounds, so you can build yourself back up and radiate from the solid inside of yourself. It's also just a heart holder and a heart strengthener. And it's for speaking up, for naming what you need, for feeling grounded in your own voice and your own wisdom. It's a reminder that you have so so much to offer, that people want and need to hear from you and that you have a right to feel protected, boundaried and safe in doing so and doing you.
Ingredients: st. john's wort, motherwort, blue vervain, yarrow, & vodka
Note: There are a number of contraindications for use of St. John's Wort and a solid list is here. Please review before considering. Not for use for people taking SSRIs as St. John's Wort is contraindicated. And if you are taking estrogen, if your levels are "balanced" it can shift the levels a bit and could make it seem as if you are a bit deficient, while taking SJW, or overloaded if you stop. It's not necessarily a reason to not take it, but something to consider and perhaps if you do decide to try it, a lower dose and monitoring your levels is ideal.
All herbs are either locally and ethically hand-collected or come from an organic herb company or farm.
(not for use during pregnancy. herbs are safe but please do research to make sure they are safe for you and your body and needs.)
