Sleep is the glue that holds human beings together. Getting a good night's sleep is a little more complex than simply dropping off - ideally, you want to fall asleep easily but also stay asleep. DOZE & DREAM is designed to do just that, by helping to address both of these issues.
Ashwagandha, one of the few non-stimulating adaptogens, joins forces with calming Reishi and Chamomile, to gently ease you to sleep. Traditional medicine favourites, Nutmeg and Passionflower, have been used to help sustain sleep for those who tend to wake up in the night.
Our formulations are never rushed. Thoughtfully researched and crafted by our own medical herbalist, drawing on over 20 years of experience. Every product has been carefully designed, bringing together the right herbs to produce the best results.
Every ingredient has a purpose.
We believe that acting in harmony with nature is the only remedy that really works. We responsibly source the finest plants nature has to offer and are always transparent about our ingredients.
Ashwagandha is one of the few non-stimulating adaptogens. In Ayurveda it is considered a Rasayana – a herb used to enhance life force and improve quality of life. It is known to reduce cortisol and improve the body’s resistance to stress helping you to sleep through the night.
Our Ashwagandha comes from pure powdered root, with nothing added, as has been used by herbalists through the ages.
Reishi is known as the 'mushroom of immortality' because of its use in China to strengthen the immune system, improve cognition and prolong life.
We use only the highest quality organic Reishi containing a combination of a traditional hot water extract with biomass. This ensures optimal levels of bioavailable polysaccharides (the good stuff!).
Passionflower is a beautiful flower which has been used, since its introduction to Europe in the 17th century from the Americas, as a tea to help provide restful sleep.
Known to be one of the nine sacred herbs of the Saxons, dedicated to the sun god Ra by the Egyptians, Chamomile has been a significant herb for thousands of years.
Traditionally used to promote calm and relaxation, Chamomile was used extensively for nervousness and anxiety as well as cramp and digestive issues.
A prized spice originally grown in the Moluccan islands of Indonesia, Nutmeg was used in Ayurveda to help with sleep – often prepared in a milky drink to be taken before bed.
The Herbtender’s products are classified as ‘food supplements’ and are safe to take alongside other food supplements.
Doze & Dream should be taken in the evening before bed. If you still find it difficult to nod off, you can try either increasing the dose or taking them earlier (up to 4 hours before bed) to allow them to work their magic before you switch off.
We know you know your body best. Begin with two capsules before bed or by 9pm at night (whichever is earlier). Increase or decrease the dose from one to four capsules for your ideal result, you can also reduce dosage if you feel it's too strong.
As Doze & Dream capsules are taken before bed, and we don’t anticipate that you will be eating food at that time, you can take Doze & Dream without food.
Yes, all of our products can be taken long term. Often, we find that when people no longer need them, they begin to forget to take them. If you find that happening, you can always stop taking them for a few weeks to see how life is without them and then decide whether or not to restart.
Yes! In fact we have designed a series of sets combining two or more of our products that go particularly well together. Click on the link to view all our sets.
This is a very individual thing. Some people will notice an effect from the first dose, others may need to take the capsules for a week or more before noticing a difference. If you have been taking the capsules for a week and are not noticing any difference, it may be that you need to increase the dose you are taking to the slightly higher one recommended on the pack. We don’t recommend taking more than four capsules per day of any of our products.
With the exceptions of Focus & Clarity and Calm & Collected, all of our products are safe to use while trying to conceive. Once you are pregnant, however, we recommend consulting with a qualified herbalist or medical practitioner before taking any supplements.
We strive to make all our products not only effective but beautiful.
All of our packaging has been designed with sustainability in mind. Everything from our refillable glass jars to our recycled cardboard box can be recycled. Our pouches are also compostable!
