Morning glory is a vine plant, and the flowers come in a range of colors. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we have a few varieties that are native, and at least one that is an escapist from gardens. They are delicate flowers whose petals are thin and almost translucent. This essence was made by hand by our herbalist, Ava Zhan.
Sleep problems, difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, difficulty rising in the morning, tendency toward being a night owl.
The white morning glory flower essence is particularly recommended for both adults and children whose sleep cycle is off; for example, those who want to be up late into the night and then sleep all day but need to adjust to a more traditional sleep schedule. For people whose minds are overactive in the evening, with new ideas flowing and flowing, consider taking the morning glory essence alongside chamomile flower essence (especially for children, or adults with a tendency toward headaches later in the day and with very stressful lives), or alongside blue vervain flower essence or blue vervain herbal tincture (particularly beneficial for overly driven or overcommitted adults; adults should also drastically reduce coffee intake after 12 pm).
Ava's work with morning glory was initially inspired by the teachings of David Dalton.

I was having a hard time sleeping at night and it began just out of the blue. Some nights I would stay up all night, almost panicking and suffering from anxiety attacks. I tried a lot of things to calm my mind but all of them would just work initially and then didn't help much later. I and my family were quite concerned about my health and sleeping issues.
I'm a big fan of Ava's skincare line - EWB and I came across few rave reviews about her flower essences line from friends on Instagram.
So when I had a brief conversation with Ava, she sent me the White Morning Glory flower essence. I had no idea if it would work; but I followed the instructions with an open mind. I have lot of faith in Ava's creations.
For few days I could barely notice any difference. But then gradually, my sleeping patterns started improving. It was subtle but with time it became noticeable. I still don't know how it works but after experiencing the results, I can certainly say it does.
