Ms. Tea

Sleep Tight | Bedtime Drops

$20.00

An alcohol-free, sweet blend of floral glycerites and flower essences to ease tension, pain and anxiety, help us drop into our bodies and induce restful slumber. Skullcap relaxes tense, overworked necks and shoulders - diffusing nervous energy and grounding us back into our bodies; passionflower slows down repetitive thoughts that prevent sleep and chills out frustrated feelings; valerian helps to remedy insomnia, soothe pain and anxiety, warm the whole nervous system, and relax blood vessels to move us into a state of flow; blue vervain is a magical plant who was sacred to the Druids and has been used to relieve digestive issues, cramping, and cool down fires of excess productivity leading to stress and burnout; and flower essences of borage, yerba santa, and California poppy help diffuse patterns of grief and trauma that trouble sleep and dreams — leading us to acceptance of our soul depth and experiencing a full range of vibrant human emotions beyond ego, pride, and toil.

*Note: Valerian's warming qualities may be stimulating for folks who run hot. Consider Tranquility, Spirit Dreamer, or Ease on Down as an alternative.

1fl oz

All organic California-grown: skullcap (scutellaria lateriflora), passionflower (passiflora spp.), valerian root (valeriana off.), blue vervain (verbena hastata), flower essences of borage, yerba santa and California poppy in organic vegetable glycerin

Start with 1 dropper in water, tea, or any beverage an hour before bed for deep sleep and relaxation.

Founded by Levi Leigh Barringer (they/them), a bioregional herbalist, medicine maker, and visual creative residing in Petaluma, California, Ms. Tea is an apothecary of handcrafted and ethically sourced herbs from local farms and herb growers, as well as Levi’s own medicinal herb garden. Levi listens and tends to plants to foster regenerative and reciprocal relationships with the deep magic of human and more-than-human worlds…and Levi has supported people from all walks of life seeking to build relationships with plants and work with herbs in various ways.

Levi’s plant path started with their first teacher: the land. What began in childhood as climbing trees in the Wabash River watershed in southern Indiana later became a deeply felt sense of place when they first experienced the Sonoran Desert bloom in 2012. Over time, Levi has committed to nurturing relationships with lands, waters, their protectors…and weaving those teachings into their medicine and work. Ms. Tea started as a play on words: a slippery pun, an ode to our primordial origins in water. The ancestral memory held in streams, rivers, ocean.

In 2016, Levi began shifting their herbal practice towards mutual aid and organizing by sending herbs to water protectors at Standing Rock. Collective care is a cornerstone of Levi’s practice, not as an act of generosity, but as a way to cultivate more resilient communities. They currently work with other local herbalists as part of Bay Area Herbal Response Team to help further their mission to connect low income folks and communities impacted by systemic injustice with herbal consults and education.

Levi’s craft is informed by their roots as a rural queer and navigating historical trauma and grief through their own somatic work. Herbalism came to Levi through land connection, field botany, and backcountry camping along desert washes, alpine ranges, and riparian waterways. They left their full-time design job in 2017 to pursue herbalism and find ways to deepen their creative practice.

Levi studied as a vitalist herbal practitioner with course work in Astro herbalism with the School of Evolutionary Herbalism, and expanded their practitioner skills with Blue Otter School of Herbal Medicine. Levi studied holistic protocols, advanced formulation, herbal safety, and ethics with Wild Current Herbalism, with whom they are currently taking on a rigorous clinical mentorship.
