Kiss The Moon Calm After Dark Balm

Kiss The Moon is a brand I became aware of via a beauty box about a year ago and since that introduction, I have become an avid fan. Based in North Yorkshire, they are a tea who are obsessed with and have a passion for helping people have a good nights sleep. All of the products aim to get you into the right frame of mind for sleep and, at the same time, provide your skin with the nutrients it needs as it repairs itself overnight. To do that, pure essential oils have been grown and harvested for their therapeutic benefits and keeping everything 100% natural, so there are no parabens, no harsh chemicals and no artificial perfumes.  

I was kindly sent the Calm After Dark Balm, which arrived so beautifully gift wrapped that I didn't want to open it. Inside, the balm, was again beautifully wrapped and I was intrigued to find out more about it.

The description of this balm reads:

Wide awake and need to sleep? Try applying your favorite Kiss the Moon After Dark Balm to your wrists and temples. The relaxing essential oils have been hand-chosen to sooth the soul and ease the mind so you can drift peacefully off to sleep.

Well you might notice a theme on the blog this week with a few posts dedicated to getting a good nights sleep and this Balm fits right in with those posts. Using the essential oils of 

  • Jasmine - A precious oil absolute from flowers picked at night when their warm, relaxing aromas are at their most potent.  As an essential oil, Jasmine has properties to promote relaxation as well as reducing tension, stress and nervousness.
  • Roman Chamomile - One of the gentlest oils of all. Known for its ability to calm the senses and soothe dry or irritated skin. It also helps with insomnia.
  • Ylang Ylang - An exotic flower from the South Sea islands with the power to relax and rebalance.  It also helps with nervous tension and stress while having a calming effect.
  • Sandalwood - Prized for its beautiful scent and its ability to balance skin’s natural oil production. As an essential oil and in a product such as this, it is known as being a relaxing oil which has a harmonising and calming effect, helps to reduce tension, stress, nervous exhaustion and anxiety.
There is also the inclusion of Shea Butter and White Tea Seed Oil to give you a little touch of relaxation whenever you need it most.

To use, all you need to do is rub your finger along the top of the balm, using your body's natural temperature, it melts the balm slightly and then all you need to do is simply massage it into your pulse points. By doing this, the essential oils work to quieten your mind and help you drift off to sleep. I do find this balm incredibly relaxing and it does smell just simply divine, once applied to my pulse points, around 30 minutes before I go to bed, I am beginning to yawn within 10 minutes or so and once in bed, I drift off pretty quickly without tossing and turning.

Kiss the Moon is such a beautiful brand and one which is worth looking into, if sleep is not your friend.  There are also other products to devour in three other blends - Love, Glow and Dream.
