A Focused Mind // Study Aid & Brain Tonic Oxymel
Food for thought....literally. This is a blend of adaptogens (plants that help the body adapt to stress and to exert a normalizing effect upon bodily processes) and nootropics (substances that improve cognitive function such as memory, creativity, and motivation) to feed the brain and align the crown chakra.
This elixir is considered an oxymel as it is a blend of infused vinegar and honey, giving it a "sweet and sour" flavor. Take a dropper neat, under the tongue or use as flavoring in water.
