Why balms?

Why balms?

Article Summary

Self-massage with aromatherapy is an effective and easy way to combat modern life-induced anxiety while leaving your skin looking smooth and radiant. All-in-all, it may bring you back in balance and support whole-body health. 

 

 

Before I get into the bones of this post, I just want to clarify one thing. The terms "balm" and "salve" are often used interchangeably. Traditional herbalists may argue there is a difference between the two, but for the sake of simplicity, I refer to all our products as balms, for it is a term that many of us already know. 

 

So, why balms? 

Creating balms happened rather organically. Early in my experimentations in the kitchen, I had created some aromatherapy blends and needed a way to safely use them on the body. I sought to create something convenient, effective, and above all, enjoyable to use. After many test formulations, I came to appreciate the simplicity of a balm. Unlike serums and liquid-based formulas, balms seemed to have greater shelf-stability and weren't prone to spills, offering a convenient solution that traveled well.  

Coupled with self-massage, balms activate the senses, nourish the skin, free stagnation, and melt tension. In fact, there are many proven benefits of regular self-massage, both superficial and physical; some of my favorites include improved skin condition, pain relief, anxiety relief, detoxification support, and even sleep improvement.
