DR WEIL FOR ORIGINS NIGHT HEALTH BEDTIME BALM – I am not really into the whole organic thing. I respect it – but I rarely buy “organic” or “natural” brands for my personal use. However, Dr Weil’s plantidote range for Origins is one exception for me. There is something about this light textured, pleasantly fragranced range that really appeals and actually feels good to use. This Bedtime Balm is just one of the newer examples, part of the Night Health Range. When I first heard the name, it sounded like a gentle lotion for babies. Actually I cant see why you couldnt use it on babies too. This is supposed to be used for relaxing tense shoulders and aching necks. You can certainly expand that list of uses as you wish – it’s light enough to use on your face too without alarm. It is infused with chamomile, lavender and mandarin essentials oils to lift your spirit and calm your nerves, especially if you have watched CNN or MSNBC lately before bedtime. That will certainly keep you awake all night! Right now I think we should all take advantage of anything that can ease some of the tension – even in a balm. As a chronic insomniac myself (which is why you will see postings from MWC at 3 AM EST often), this is a treat for me.
FINAL VERDICT: RDW (RUN DONT WALK) – Soothing, calming and relaxing light balm for night time use – great for compromised skin, exhausted, dehydrated, jet lagged or just plain dry skin. And only priced at a gentle $25.
