One of herbalism's best kept secrets!
on 3 May 2013
As someone who tends to expend alot of energy at work on a daily basis, I am prone to falling asleep after having made and eaten my dinner. Sometimes I drift in to a very deep sleep, which leaves me feeling groggy when I eventually wake up. This also then results in my inability to fall asleep later on in the evening. I was recommended this sleep balm by my Aunt who swears by it. I am always willing to try herbal remedies (such as Bach's Rescue Remedy) with perhaps a bit more of an open mind than some, but I always still have my doubts. Anyway, having been using the sleep balm for the past 5 months or so I can safely say that 99% of the time I am managing to drift off to sleep even if I have fallen asleep earlier in the evening (the 1% is times when my mind is perhaps too alert due to stress/anxiety about work). I use a combination of 3 or sometimes 4 things each night: a cup of warm camomile tea, followed by a brisk 20 minute walk. After washing I put some sleep balm on my upper lip, cheeks and neck. I sometimes also couple this with a warm bath with some droplets of pure lavender oil added. This more or less always works and I wake up feeling refreshed the following day, with the only side affect being a longing for even more sleep.
I have recommended this balm to some friends who all doubt herbalism and my personal opinion. I reckon this is one of the best discoveries I have ever made and I will look in to trying some of the other badger balms for other ailments in future.
