Underworld: Everyone has their own bedtime ritual. Underworld Potion is formulated as an ally to initiate you into a place of rest and renewal and to guide you through the depths of the underworld. A small amount supports a necessary unwinding from the day’s productive work and encourages a reflective transition into the realm of sleep, where we can turn away from the news of the world to steep in the dreamtime of the cosmos.
Before bed, 10-20 drops for a light initiation or 1-3 dropperfuls to encourage restful sleep. As the quality of sleep varies for every person, the dosage of this potion can also vary from person to person. Experiment with what works for you.
