This is a formula used to help people dealing with depression, including pregnancy depression, Postpartum Depression (PPD), Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), or any kind of depression, sorrow or sadness. The blend contains organic Rose blossom and a proprietary blend of flower essences of Elm, Gentian, Gorse, Larch, Mustard, Sweet Chestnut and Wild Rose, with Rose Quartz gem essence and Ocean Jaspar gem essence. Each is noted in its ability to gently and effectively lift and alleviate feelings of depression. Although it can be used by anyone, this product was created for use by pregnant and nursing mothers, and can even be used by those on medications.
The Happy Day tincture has been described as bringing Light into the Soul.
Rose Tincture – Organic Rose blossom extracted in organic grape alcohol. Rose is noted for its helpfulness in alleviating depression, sadness, anxiety and sorrow. It is high in vitamins and minerals, which is also helpful, as many people suffering from depression tend to be low in B vitamins in particular.
The Bach Flower Essences listed above are also included, each of them addressing depression in its various forms and stemming from various causes. Flower Essences work on the emotional body, whereas herbs work on the physical body.
Gem (or crystal) essences also work on the emotional and spiritual body, which in turn, has an affect on the physical body. Rose Quartz and Ocean Jasper are both noted for their uplifting attributes, ability to encourage feelings of joy and happiness, and helps one to feel more optimistic in life. Gems and crystals have gentle, but powerful, healing properties and have been used over milleniums for healing purposes. By addressing the emotional, spiritual and physical needs of a person tends to culminate in a more complete and long-lasting result.
NOTE: As this product contains flower and gem essences, which do take time to work, best results will be seen with consistent and with several weeks of use. A 2oz bottle will last 2 weeks and a 4oz will last a month and is the best cost value. The longer the product is used, the better results will be achieved.
Rose is a Class 1 herb, meaning that its considered safe for use by anyone including pregnant or breastfeeding women (unless they have an individual allergy to it of course), and has no listed contraindications, side effects or drug interactions, even with SSRI's or anti-depressant medications (unlike St. John's Wort, which IS contraindicated for use by those on SSRI's). The other items in the product are all vibrational - meaning that they contain the vibration or essence of the flower or crystal only. This may seem "light-weight", but although they are subtle, they are extremely effective. Herb Lore tinctures are also gluten-free.

TESTIMONIAL: I was struggling with depression after the birth of my sixth baby. While I had some "blues" after my other births, depression really took over this time. I was breastfeeding, so I did not want to take medications. I held out as long as possible, but the depression had grown to the point I knew I needed to get help. I was planning to call about getting a prescription when a sample bottle from Herb Lore arrived on my porch with the Happy Day Tincture to try as a test subject. I decided not to call for a prescription anti-depressant until I tried this first. Best decision I could have possibly made! It only took a few days before I started feeling like myself again. I started sleeping better, enjoying our new baby, and just generally feeling more relaxed and back to my normal self.
I have a relative (by marriage) who suffers with occasional severe depression (and was even hospitalized a few years ago). He's tried vitamins, supplements, nutritional changes and prescription anti-depressants in the past, none of which have helped manage his depression. After seeing the changes in me after the baby was born, he asked to try some of my leftover tincture. It's been nearly 9 months since then, and he has not had an episode of depression while using this tincture.
Everyone is different, and obviously what works for some people might not work for everyone, but in my experience, this is an absolute must-try product. JF
Hi Pam! The Happy Day Tincture arrived yesterday, and I took two droppers full immediately after opening it. I noticed that my racing thoughts seemed more focused, I felt more calm and balanced, and got a lot done! and... I have a cold right now so the fact that I was productive says a lot :) I'll report back again but so far I love it! HK
I have to say, that tincture feels like a balm to my insides. I don't know how it works, but I think we are all benefiting from it! My daughter has been struggling so much with adolescent angst and the last couple of days she seems happier! Me too! E.G.
