Badger Sleep Balm

Standard

I’m a bad sleeper. I sleep light and it takes me forever to fall asleep once I do finally settle down for the night, so I decided to give Badger Sleep Balm a try.

One of the things I love about badger Balm – every one of their products is USDA Certified Organic & 100% Natural!

ABOUT BADGER SLEEP BALM
For Poetic Badgers & Other Restless Wanderers A dreamy night balm rich with precious oils to calm, encourage, cheer and relax poetic Badgers and other restless wanderers. Badger Sleep Balm doesn’t make you sleepy and it is not a drug, rather this natural sleep enhancer uses a sophisticated blend of essential oils to help quiet your thoughts and clear your mind, then you fall asleep naturally. Rosemary is the traditional herb for clear thinking, confidence, and memory. Bergamot is mentally uplifting, and Ginger is strengthening and confidence-inducing. Balsam Fir is refreshing, like a walk in the woods, while Lavender is the traditional sleep herb: fresh and relaxing. This balm is perfect for those nights when you can’t seem to stop the mind chatter!

Directions for use: Just rub a little balm under nose, on lips, on temples or other pulse points. The aroma calms and relaxes, allowing for a peaceful transition into sleep.

MY THOUGHTS
While it isn’t a sleep aid that will put you to sleep, Badger Sleep Balm has essential oils such as lavender and bergamot that aid in natural sleep – I.E. the mix of essential oils help to clear your mind and put you in the right state for a good night’s sleep.

Sold in a resealable metal tin, this balm has a lovely scent that isn’t overpowering. I usually rub a little on my temples, forehead, and under my nose and I find that when I do use it, I definitely have a more relaxing sleep and I awake feeling refreshed.

It is thick but not overly greasy, and extremely moisturizing. I have used a number of the Badger Balm products because I love how they make my skin feel.

A little goes a long way with this product. I opted for the .75 oz Tin because I was worried it might go rancid if I didn’t use it all up quickly. I’ve had this tin for over a year and still have more than half left. Granted, I don’t use it every night, but I still believe it will last a long time if you are applying it the way I do.

I’ve read some other people use it for their dry hands or all-over for dry arms and legs so if you go that route, I’d definitely buy the larger 2 oz. Tin (which I had before this one).

All in all, I would use this product again and again.

Badger Focus Balm

Standard

Badger-Balm-Clear-Mind-BalmAlready a fan of many of Badger’s products, I was interested when I saw this Focus Balm (originally called Focus Balm).

It is the same as the other Badger balms I’ve tried – organic, with various essential oils to soothe and Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Beeswax to moisturize.

I wasn’t sure it would work but I was very impressed with how well I was able to focus when using it. I love the scent. It isn’t overpowering and using it when I really need to concentrate allows me to indulge in a little aromatherapy action!

I rub a little into my temples, forehead and under my nose and it really does allow me to focus when I have a lot to get done.

Badger Damascus Rose Face Oil

Standard

face-oil-rose-jojobaI get very dry skin in the winter so instead of just opting for lotion this year, I decided to try something new.

I am a huge fan of Badger Balm and their entire line so when I saw their Face Oils, I knew I had to give one of them a try.

Since I sometimes get breakouts, even at 40 (I know…), I needed something for sensitive skin and the Damuscus Rose Oil seemed like the perfect fit.

It is for dry/delicate skin, 100% Natural and Certified Organic and full of anti-oxidents to replenish moisture and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Now, I’ll be the first to admit I hate rose-scented lotions and perfumes, so if you feel the same way you don’t have to worry here.

Damuscus Rose Oil has a light and lovely scent, which is perfect for a face oil. I know it might seem counter-intuitive to put oil on your face, but this oil absorbs so quickly and it doesn’t feel like you’ve just slicked your skin with it.

In the morning, you wake up still feeling moisturized and in fact, I find my skin felt soft and supple right away.

In the summer, I was only using it a few times a week but now that it’s winter and the heater is going, I’ll definitely feel okay about using it more often.

It’s great quality for value too, since you only need a few pumps, if that, to cover your entire face.

I love this oil and I’d definitely consider trying it or one of their other new oils (they have new Seabuckthorn for dry/combination skin and Argon Oil for oily/combination skin).
