Semde is a traditional Tibetan herbal compound hundreds of years old it is known as (Sem-kyi De-kyid or Sem-de). Its name simply translates to “mental happiness” or “happiness of the mind.” Semde consists of 18 remedies meant for irritability, lack of concentration, mental dullness, stress, persistent sadness, unhappiness, and other types of anxiety related conditions and depression. This includes mild, moderate, and even severe depression, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), and “the blues”.
Semde is also known for its rehabilitation properties from potent drugs especially when used in conjunction with Agar 35. Semde emphasizes the clarity (gsal-ba) or the innate awareness (rig-pa) aspect of the natural state.
