So, with the rebrand about to take place with our beautiful new amber glass packaging, we thought we’d start by introducing a new product – our Sleep Balm.
This is a luxurious shea butter cream with Lavender and Rose Geranium essential oils to help soothe and relax you into a good night’s sleep. The essential oils are both high in a compound known as Linalool, which has been scientifically proven to help calm your nervous system down and put your body into a more conducive state for sleep. Rose Geranium, in particular, is believed to help reduce anxiety, so if this is a factor in preventing you from sleeping, you may find this to be just the tonic.
The cream itself is deeply moisturising but isn’t sticky nor oily. It absorbs really well and is great if you have any areas of dry skin. I’ve even found it calms mosquito bites, probably owing to the anti-inflammatory properties of the shea butter and lavender.
To use it, I recommend applying some to your feet and the pulse points (wrists, neck area) so that you get the wonderful aroma to calm and relax you. Some people do use it as a face cream, but it is a thicker cream than a body lotion, so I’d only recommend doing this if your face is a bit dry.
We’re really proud of this product and hope you will love it as much as we do. Please do let us know how you get on with it.
