There are a number of wonderful teas you can drink at night to help you relax and unwind. Additionally we have a few specific herbs that you can add in to help support additional relaxation and rest. Ashwagandha, Reishi, He Shou Wu are great additions, to help support restful sleep, cortisol levels and support relaxation. You can use our powder form of Ashwagandha or add a dropperful of our Ashwagandha Transcendent Elixir. We love some Reishi and Ashwagandha Transcendent Elixir in our Spring Dragon Longevity Tea with some Super Honey!

Is Ashwaganda, Lion's Mane, and Triphala a good and safe combination together?
Yes! These three are a great combination, as each one serves quite a different purpose. Lion's Mane is great for supporting cognitive health, Ashwagandha is an amazing adaptogen that may support stress and restful sleep, and the Triphala Transcendent Elixir is a digestion tonic. You can start with a slightly smaller dose of each to see how you feel and then gradually take the recommended dose size. *We do recommend trying this blend in the evening as Triphala is for gentle detox Thank you for writing in!
Do you have a potion I can travel with for optimal gut health? Thanks
Adaptogens and tonic herbs can support gut health, some like Reishi and Ashwagandha support gut health due to their ability to lower inflammation in the body. Additionally, Triphala is a wonderful traveler's tonic! We recently published two pieces on adaptogens that may support gut/digestive health, we recommend checking them out!

I'm a busy mum who is suffering from panic attacks.. any particular products you would recommend?
Hi there busy mum, we would love to help you choose some products to support panic attacks, anxiety and stress. There are three adaptogens/tonic herbs that really come to mind here- the first, our Queen Healer mushroom Reishi. Reishi is reputed to support stress, anxiety and the nervous system. It is a great medicinal mushroom to begin with. Additionally, I recommend looking more into He Shou Wu and Ashwagandha*. You could try a tonic with all three or just start with Reishi! *(note, Ashwagandha will be returning to sunpotion.com next week) If you do begin to add one of these tonic herbs/adaptogens to your routine, and have any specific questions- please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi there! I recently received my blood work and I’m very low testosterone and progesterone. I’m 34, female and have been seemingly exhausted lately. Any advice or elixirs would be much appreciate :)
Hi! I would be happy to recommend some products for you to support healthy hormone levels. I would look at: Green Adaptogen, Pine Pollen and Ashwagandha. You can combine these all or just start with one! Pine Pollen may be the best starting point, or Yin Power is an option too which contains Pine Pollen and other hormone supportive adaptogens. You can add one or more of these to coffee, tea, a blended tonic and h20. Hope this is helpful for you!
Help with lifelong insomnia. I’ve tried everything else.
Hi there... oof, sleeping is so important and when you're unable to do so effectively, we know it can affect all areas of daily life. While we are not herbalists, and consulting one may be best as everyone has a unique experience- based on our knowledge of the herbs and adaptogens we recommend looking further into: Ashwagandha and Reishi, which would be great in Chamomile tea with some raw honey or ghee. You can incorporate this tonic into your evening routine 1/2 tsp. Ashwagandha 1/2 tsp. Reishi 1 tbsp. raw honey or ghee (the fats, alongside the herbs before bed may aid in sound sleeping) Add the herbs to your favorite mug and then add the tea and raw honey/ghee, stir well, sip and try to relax.
