I just wanted to share that we have found the Goodnight Combo Tincture highly effective for episodes of OCD (intrusive thoughts and anxiety), providing relief within 15-20 minutes. And of course, it works really well for falling and staying asleep! We do use it during the day when there are symptoms of intrusive thoughts and anxiety and it doesn’t cause sleepiness then. Maybe the brain is just SO overactive during those episodes that the calming effect is only one of normalizing, not sleep-inducing. The symptoms of OCD are very painful, so I am amazed and grateful that this works so incredibly well. We can never be without it! Thank you for providing this product! MK
People are commonly confused when they read tincture directions suggesting they take a "dropperful" or two of a tincture. When they squeeze the bulb on the droppertop, they are surprised to see that it fills the glass tube only a little bit of the way. They try to squeeze harder to try to fill it completely, but it never works. This is why:
There are many, many different sizes of tincture bottles with droppertops (and glass tubes) that fit each size. Some are very tiny, and some are very large. The tiny bottles will have short glass tubes attached to the droppertop, and the large ones will have a very long glass tube. The squeeze bulb on them all, however, is all the same size. When you squeeze it, it will draw the same amount of liquid into the glass tube no matter how long or short it may be. This way, you get a standard dose each time. Otherwise, you would get only a little – an under-dosage - with the small, short one - or an over-dosage with a large one.
