I was lucky enough to win a recent Twitter competition and was sent a gorgeous gift from Badger Balm, the prize featured lots of lovely things of which I plan to review over the coming weeks. First off, I’m going to review the Badger Balm Sleep Balm, since I’ve had trouble sleeping lately, I was excited to see if this product could help.
First off, how cute is the packaging?! You know what I am like with pretty packaging, absolutely love some cuteÂ packaging. All Badger Balms come in a metal tin and feature the iconic Badger illustration, each illustration represents the properties of that balm.
Badger Balm Sleep Balm is a completely organic product, as well as being cruelty free. The balm features top notes of Lavender, a essential oil that is well known as a soothing oil, fantastic for aiding sleep. Bergamot is the next essential oil, Bergamot is known for it’s mood boosting properties and has been known to be used as a anti-depressant.
So, this blend is great for calming, relaxing and uplifting. The balm form of this sleep balm makes for a very versatile product, before bed you can apply pretty much anywhere that you think would help. I’ve been applying it to my temples, pulse points and lips. It actually makes a really nice lip balm.
With aromatherapy products, I think you really have to partially believe in their effects to be actually able to feel them work. Personally, I am keen onÂ holisticÂ treatments such as aromatherapy, so felt like this did make a difference. However, there are no miracle cures forÂ troublesomeÂ sleep, so manage yourÂ expectations.
Have you tried Badger Balms? Which ones do you like?
