Badger Sleep Balm - Lavender & Bergamot

A balm that can knock you off to dreamland? Rejoice Insomniacs!

I'm kidding. It doesn't actually work that way. Hah. Caught you there.

It's an organic balm containing essential oils such as Lavender, Rosemary, Bergamot and Ginger. The aroma of this is subtle, sweet, comforting and relaxing. I like how the Lavender in here is kept understated as I usually find it's scent a little too overpowering and smoky. I find this one slightly floral and woody.

You can use it in whatever way you want but I personally like to rub in into the collarbone area, the temples, between the wrists and the tip of the nose before going to sleep or whenever I'm feeling anxious or restless, which is actually most of the time.

It's soothing aroma helps calm you down  gradually but effectively. The formula of the balm is quite nice. Not too greasy so I end up using it on the dry areas of my face at times and it's a god send for the elbows, hands and cuticles. I love tins and always have because they're not only cute but also compact so you can pop it in your handbag where ever you go.

The formula is pretty hydrating for dry, dehydrated skin. If you incline towards oily skin, avoid slathering it on the face and reserve it for other pulse points on the body as it still manages to work even if not in immediate proximity to the nose.

I usually find it hard to stop my mind from constantly jogging with thoughts and I'm sure there's tonnes of you out there who feel exactly the same. If you find it difficult to wind down, relax and take a deep breath at the end of the day, this works as a little bedside aromatherapy treat for the senses accompanied by a good book.

Was having a look at it's reviews online and found so many people saying they can actually remember their dreams better when using this at night. Gotta try that out as I'm usually a blank slate when I wake up!

You can find it for £3.99 at Bath & Unwind.

Oooh I got this too!

The scent is lovely but not as strong enough. However, rubbing this across the temples helps an awful lot. Relieves all the tension!

It's funny how sometimes even a balm can be reassuring ^_^ Get it!

I love this! I do wish the scent was stronger. Am unsure whether it really works or whether it works because i *think* it does. Doesn't help me with sleep but definitely helps with unwinding n relaxing..
