Bedtime is easily one of my favorite moments of the day. After hours full of hustle and bustle, animation and accompaniment of my children, bedtime is a welcome rest. On a good day, my kids snuggle up together and listen to stories before they fall asleep. Most of the time it doesn’t go so well. Aromatherapy formulations, such as this Bergamot Bedtime aromatherapy balm, can help lower energy levels and promote faster and easier bedtime for everyone.
Our Bergamot Bedtime Aromatherapy balm is essentially a solid massage oil. We have combined Babassu’s moisturizing oil with rich and creamy Nilotica shea butter to create a carefully prepared blend of soothing essential oils. Sweet bergamot and chamomile go beautifully with musky ylang-ylang and woody cedar. The bright green scents of spearmint, lavender and juniper round off this delightful aromatherapy treat.
ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS
Babassu Oil Organic
Our organic babassu oil is a nourishing and moisturizing semi-solid vegetable oil pressed from the babassu palm. Rich in lauric acid, babassu is an excellent choice to revitalize skin and hair. It also makes an excellent massage oil.
Organic nilotica Shea Butter
More gentle and creamy than typical shea varieties, Nilotica Shea butter offers a delicious texture and excellent moisturizing benefits. Nilotica Shea butter deeply moisturizes skin and hair care recipes.
Essential Oil Of Organic Bergamot, FCF (without furanocoumarin)
Our FCF Organic Bergamot Essential Oil provides the delicious aroma of bergamot without the phytotoxicity problems usually associated with bergamot oils. The provision of an essential oil without furanocoumarin allows a much wider range of applications for bergamot. The sweet, lemon and floral aroma of the essential oil of bergamot goes well with spices, woods and herbs. In aromatherapy, bergamot is often considered uplifting, balancing and rejuvenating.
Essential oil of Lavandin Grosso Organic
An excellent lavender variety for use in massage mixtures, lavindin grosso Bio is designed to help support well-being and promote relaxation. Lavindin grosso has a characteristic herbaceous scent, but is not too camphor or medicinal.
Organic Roman Chamomile Oil
Roman chamomile is famous for its use in soothing formulations and is often used in applications designed to promote sleep and rest. Its sweet aroma, similar to that of an apple, is a delicious and delicate main ingredient in mixtures of essential oils before going to bed.
Essential oil of organic cedar wood
The essential oil of cedar wood has a deep woody aroma that is immediately recognizable. This bold base note can act as a fixative, helping to enhance the other flavors of a compound. Cedar is often used to promote a sense of calm and relaxation in aromatherapy formulations.
Organic Green Mint essential oil
Essential oil of spearmint has a slightly sweeter and milder aroma than peppermint, making it an excellent choice to complement other oils in blends. We love the way our organic mint essential oil harmonizes with the tart and cheerful aroma of bergamot.
Juniper Essential oil
Juniper essential oil has a warm, peppery pine scent that acts as a heart note in aromatic formulations. Although juniper is often found in energy mixtures, it can also promote rest when combined with other oils that provide such benefits.
Ylang-Ylang Essential oil
The beautiful aroma of the essential oil of ylang ylang has a deep, fragrant and exotic fragrance, which is appreciated for its use in perfumery and skin care. In aromatherapy, ylang ylang is often used to discourage fear and anger. It is believed to promote a sense of security and positivity.
