Welcome to the journal - an online, intersectional wellness platform - to connect, educate and inspire our international community.

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. 

Can you tell me which of your potions assist with fertility in both women and men. Thank you!

Hi there, we are glad you asked! Some adaptogens and tonic herbs to look at for supporting fertility in both men and women are: Cordyceps, Pine Pollen, Polyrachis Ant or our Yin Power blend which contains: Organic Reishi Mushroom, Wild harvested He Shou Wu Extract, Wild harvested Pearl Powder, Tocos, Organic Ashwagandha Extract, Wild harvested Pine Pollen, Wild harvested Astragalus Extract, Organic Shatavari. You could prepare a tonic for two to support fertility~ 1 tsp. Yin Power 1/2 tsp. Pine Pollen 1/2 tsp. Polyrachis Ant 1 tsp. turmeric  12 oz. warm water (or favorite tea as the base, Ginger tea tastes great for this recipe) 1 cup plant based milk combine all ingredients in a high speed blender or shake well serve into two cups and enjoy!

Do you recommend a teacher or a school I could learn more about why and how to properly incorporate these herbs, mushrooms, and foods in to my diet?

Hey there, thanks for asking! We know that the world of adaptogens, medicinal mushrooms and tonic herbs contain centuries of history, usage, knowledge, rituals and more and can be a lot to wrap your mind around. Good news, there are some great places and resources to learn more about these plants. For websites to learn about studies of the herbs, the National Institute of Health has some amazing trials to read about from people who used tonic herbs over a course of time. Also, every product page on shares research on that herb, in the category "resources." Now lets talk about the BOOKS. Here is a list of just (some) of our favorite books about herbalism and Ayurveda.  BOOKS (as teachers) The Web That Has No Weaver The China Study Healing with Whole Foods The Healing Practice of Qi Nourishing Destiny Ayurveda (Idiot's Guide) ...on Whole Beauty The Ayurveda Encyclopedia  For teachers and schools, the books are a great place to start. Of course there are also herbalism schools in the US and abroad that can support further understanding of this vast, complex and beautiful study. 

I want to start using Sun Potion but am confused by all the products. Where should I start for energy, mood and good health?

Hi there, we are glad you asked where to start and we can help! For energy, take a further look at: Matcha, Cordyceps, He Shou Wu, Rhodiola For mood, check out: Mucuna Pruriens, Lion's Mane and Reishi For good health, really any adaptogen or tonic herb would be great to start with, such as Chlorella or a blend like Yin Power or Anandamide to begin! You can try adding a 1/2 tsp. of one of these in your coffee, tea or blended tonic and see how you feel. These adaptogens work best by consuming small amounts over a long period of time. If you ever have more questions, you can always reach out to and we can help!

Dear Sun Potion, Any suggestions to support healing from anxiety and/or depression?? Much gratitude xx

Hi there, we know healing from anxiety and depression can be a process and there are tonic herbs that work to support us in these times. You can take a further look into a few products that can be combined in a tonic or just start with one if you'd like. Reishi, Ashwagandha, Mucuna Pruriens and Anandamide are all a good place to start. You could even make a medicinal hot cacao drink using the mood-boosting anandamide with an extra dash of Mucuna Pruriens which all about supporting our emotional well-being, alongside the others mentioned. Try this: 1 tbsp. Anandamide 1/4 tsp. Reishi 1 tbsp. Tocos 8 oz. cashew or oat milk, warm Method Heat the milk on the stove (any plant based one you enjoy), just lightly simmering and add the herbs at the low heat, whisk together until combined and serve in your most cherished mug. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon or cardamom. 

Dear Sun Potion: What should I take for super intense PMS??? yikes!

PMS can be intense, we know...There are some adaptogens you can begin adding to your routine to support that challenging time of the month that will work to support hormones, stress and inflammation. Medicinal mushrooms like Reishi, also called "the queen healer" mushroom is a great place to start. Further adaptogens to consider are Pine Pollen and He Shou Wu. If you want to try a blend of herbs that is already combined, check out Yin Power, an adaptogenic tonic herbal formula to nourish the feminine! Try this: Prepare a tea with rose hips, raw honey and a teaspoon of Yin Power and soothe yourself with a warm compress or salt bath for extra support.
