A soothing blend of plant allies for our fast-paced, hectic lives, this blend eases feelings of tension, anxiety, and stress. Featuring the delicate, lacy green herb with dancing white daisy flowers known as chamomile, a tried-and-true remedy for tension in the gut, brain, and gut-brain, as well as lemon balm - a vigorous garden grower whose sweet lemony fragrance is uplifting in the face of despondency. Slow Down brings stress relief and joy taken at any time of day, and is also an effective sleep aid (doesn't make you drowsy, but helps you release the day's tension to prepare for restful sleep). These plants are also ideal for kids who might need a little more quiet, calm time.

With a name that honors the movements of the Earth's crust, which rolls in tides just like the ocean, connected to the pull of the moon, Earth Tide Botanicals founders Alena and Danny, lovingly tend to, nurture, and grow every medicinal herb in their blends on their beyond-organic land set atop the slopes of a gentle mountain two miles inland from the southern California coast. Their garden is nourished by the coastal fog that rolls in and out of the canyon, surrounded by high and dry ridgelines, but held in the dense embrace of a healthy oak woodland.
They utilize more-than-organic practices, honoring the biodiversity of the forest they call home: working to build their soil with rich compost, minimal tilling, and cover crops to reduce their water needs and honor the reality of drought in southern California.
Danny (who draws all the tiny paintings on the tincture labels) grew up in the mountains nearby and spent many years as a working artist before becoming interested in growing medicinal plants. Alena grew up in the deciduous jungles of the Southeast and has spent the last decade as an organic farmer and native plant gardener. They met during an apprenticeship at a medicinal herb farm and have been growing and making medicine together ever since.
