Valerian Refill Program

We are so grateful to everyone who has participated in the S2 so far. Thanks to your feedback, we’ve achieved significant learnings and have a long list of improvements we can’t wait to implement! It’s a slow and steady process of growth but it’s a true honour to be taking part in this journey with you. For the many whose boxes were misplaced by Royal Mail due to their industrial action - we have escalated this as far as we can (the ombudsman) and are pursuing discovery and accountability from Royal Mail daily. We will continue to do so and rest assured that you are automatically enrolled in the S3 Ashwagandha program and will be receiving the next gen sofi stick and formulations.

As per the title of this post, we are thrilled to be activating a Refill Program with valerian for our most active Pioneers, launching this week and next.


How to qualify:

If you’ve actively participated by spraying/journaling with passiflora this Program (S2) , then you will have recently received a short request form, via email, to opt-in or opt-out of receiving valerian refill pods.

Qualifying Pioneers include both S1 Pioneers who previously experienced a noticeable effect while using valerian, as well as all S2 Pioneers who haven’t had an opportunity to trial our valerian plant pods yet! (If you do not wish to receive a refill of valerian for any reason, we’d still love for you to complete the form to let us know, as any feedback is valuable!)

For those who have yet to activate passiflora or pair their sofi stick - there is still time!

We will continue to reserve Refill Packs as long as supplies last, and highly encourage you to participate. Naturally, we will take any technical issues into consideration, so if you’re not sure whether or not you qualify - or you haven’t received the refill request email (and would like to) - please feel free to reach out.

Further steps:

Once your request is submitted, please continue to journal your baseline while waiting for your refill, as the data sofi receives in-between the use of different plants is just as essential to making discoveries as journaling with the plant itself.

(To return to “baseline” (non-formulation) journaling anytime, simply log-out of the sofi app, and log back in without pairing your stick again).

When your new pods arrive, you’ll find a button labelled “switch to valerian refills’’ on the profile page of your sofi app. This button will reset your spray count and confirm your switch to valerian.

We will shortly release further update and progress on S3 which in currently in production. Wishing you a wonderful and restful weekend.

Happy spraying!

The first wave of valerian refill formulations are all boxed up and ready to be shipped out today and this week!

As you may have noticed, all three of our plant-pods have been flavoured based on the winning formulation of the S1 (pink citrus-y grapefruit). :s1_n03: :cherry_blossom: :lemon:

This Program however, we’ve partnered with a different flavour house, so we’re especially curious to hear from Pioneers who had the chance to try our pink grapefruit valerian previously, whether or not there is a noticeable improvement in smell, texture, and taste :blush:

For those who will be trying this flavour for the first time, here are some flavour notes straight from the experts:

"Valerian extract mix tonality alone is mainly based on herbal and some woody notes with touch of acidity. Among this, some herbaceous floral notes, dark chocolate, dark berries, dried plum.

Focusing on the Grapefruit flavour added to the extract, main descriptors would be : Fruity, Citrus, Juicy, Peely, Sweet, Woody."

Because all three plant pods you’ll be receiving are the same, feel free to start with any of the three you like, simply reseting your spray count manually between each pod. You’ll find the button for this via the profile page ( :bust_in_silhouette:) in the top right corner of your app, by scrolling all the way down!

Excellent, thank you so much for all your hard work in continuing to make this happen! I’m excited to try the Valerian again now that I’m no longer on antidepressants. I apologize for being so silent as I’ve been dealing with recent health challenges and just had gallbladder surgery this past Monday. Am looking forward to receiving valerian to help me get off of the opioids. I believe that and the upcoming ashwaganda will help tremendously with my recovery :mending_heart: bravo to all you SOFI people who are working so hard to help the world go plant based!! :sunflower::herb::leaves::shamrock::blossom::mushroom::potted_plant::ear_of_rice::gift_heart:

Hi guys ,
Hi @alexwalkerjones , I got your email today and I firstly want to apologise for not being as interactive this month . I have still been using the passiflora. I am down to the last refill of the passiflora and I was finding it helped more than the valerian but I didn’t like others much like the taste or yucky smell of the Valerian and didn’t feel it made much difference. In saying that since Passiflora I had begun sleeping better and my doctor changed a med I’m on and most nights when pain isn’t roaring like it was last night and today for example I have been getting 6-7 hrs sleep and feeling much more inclined to wbe motivated to be active .

During Late October and up to last week I had serious dental work done and I have been in absolute agony with the post extracrion pain . I had 4 removed in the space of a 10 days so I wasn’t active on here at all as alongside having the fibromyalgia as well i was in the pits of hell regarding pain and misery

I see that the flavour profile or the valerian has changed and the P3 is ashwaghanda which I have been told is also excellent for stress and pain as well as anxiety.
However. The benefits of Ashwaghanda really appeal to me and I really hope I get to trial that one too.

If there is enough to go around I would still retry valerian again since the taste has been changed!!

Hi @SlimJ1980, we are really excited about our upcoming ashwagandha and fingers crossed it can really make a difference for you! I will add you to the shipping list for valerian and we will be really curious to know whether you feel the taste and texture (“smoothness”, etc) has been improved :blush: :s1_n03:

So happy to hear that you’ve had a positive experience with passiflora so far, and good to know that may be the plant for you (in addition to the others out there sofi has yet to explore!)

Thank you! It’s been 1 week since surgery as of today and I’m doing much better overall - though I was sleeping deeply on the pain meds, my surgery wounds are less painful but extremely itchy and uncomfortable now so it’s disrupting any deeper sleep I get in the pain meds. Blessed to be on the mend though and looking forward to getting back to sofi sprays :herb::shamrock::leaves::ear_of_rice::gift_heart:

Thank you so, so much for this parcel of joy I received this morning :pray::heart:

I’m yet to try it, but I cried with joy at the possibility of a real nights sleep being on the horizon for the first time in so long! I’m totally gonna just keep an open mind and see how it goes, but I’m still so happy! Thank you sofi :purple_heart:
