Frida Botanicals Taper Tonic No. 1

(3 customer reviews)


Frida Botanicals Taper Tonic No. 1 calms and stabilizes the nervous system which may assist in easing symptoms typically associated with withdrawal from substances such as benzodiazepines. (Make sure to talk with your personal physician about how to safely taper off benzodiazepines). This formula supports emotional balance and mental calm, so can also help with anxiety reduction, and combines well with cannabidiol (CBD) for added effectiveness.

Our tonics are hand crafted in small batches with cane alcohol to maintain the balance of phytochemicals as they exist in the plant.

  • Chamomile: A folk medicine of great antiquity in Europe primarily used for anxiety, pain, fever, and nervous disorders of the stomach and bowels. Research on chamomile demonstrates benefits for anxiety, insomnia, and spasms.
  • Skullcap: Historically was called “Mad Dog Weed” due to its reputation for treating epilepsy caused by rabies. Has anti-anxiety and anti-seizure effects, and contains components that bind to the same receptions as benzodiazepines.
  • Passionflower: Traditionally used as a remedy for the nervous system to ease insomnia, tension, spasms, and restlessness. One study found it to have the same anxiety-reducing effect as diazepam, a benzodiazepine.
  • Valerian: Its sleep-promoting effects have been recognized in Europe since the 18th Century, and it is currently the world’s top-selling herbal supplement for insomnia. Historically it was also used for many other conditions including anxiety, depression, migraine, rheumatic pain, and spasms.
  • Eleuthero: Also called Siberian Ginseng, this is an adaptogen that improves the adrenal glands’ resilience to stress and supports recovery from trauma, illness, or injury. Chinese medical books from the 8th Century describe its use to treat rheumatism and physical and psychological fatigue.
  • Blue Vervain: In ancient Egypt, it was known as a divine herb believed to come from the tears of the goddess Isis when she wept over the death of the god Osiris. Research on vervain demonstrates benefit for insomnia, anxiety, seizures, and pain.
  • Cane alcohol (48-58%) ABV
  • Filtered water

Directions: 2ml 2–3 times daily in water, or as directed. Shake well before using.

    I’ve been using Taper Tonic #1 for a few weeks now to see if it would lessen the symptoms of my anxiety disorder. First I noticed that I’ve been waking up significantly less throughout the night, and feeling more rested during the day. Then I’d forgotten the tonic at work once and the anxiety was noticeably higher throughout the evening, after I missed a dose. I really put it to the test on a scorching day while running errands with my partner. Usually such situations spike the anxiety and I tend to get hypercritical, but after settling in back at home, I realized that I hadn’t made a single hypercritical comment during our outing, nor had I felt the urge to! I’m definitely going to continue using TT#1. In fact, I’ve already bought a second bottle.

    I took clonazepam for over 10 years for anxiety. I had heard about the horrific side effects of getting off of it, and in my quest to avoid all of that, I stumbled upon Frida Botanicals Taper Tonic #1. This stuff has been a Godsend. I’m almost completely weaned off of the drug, and the taper tonic has kept me from experiencing any major problems. I wholeheartedly recommend this product and I will continue to use it going forward. God bless Frida Botanicals.

    I’m currently on a taper after 9 years of being prescribed clonazepam and this tonic is like magic! It went above and beyond what I expected from it prior to my first order I placed. Definitely would recommend if someone I knew was trying to get off benzos especially if their prescribed taper is causing them a particularly hard time and need a little extra help
