At Milo + James, we believe that self care everyday is important and with everything that is going on in the world at the moment, it is possibly more important now than ever before. Lockdown has had a huge impact on mental health, with raised anxiety levels and increasing feelings of overwhelm. With this in mind, and our values to use ingredients with skin loving and wellbeing benefits, we created Dream Balm.
Dream Balm is a pulse point balm made with nourishing and moisturising oils and butters: sweet almond oil, coconut oil and shea butter; protective beeswax; and calming and organic lavender, geranium and chamomile to help you relax, sleep and dream.
Sweet almond oil is soothing and moisturising for the skin and full of Vitamin E. It is easily absorbed by the skin leaving it feeling soft without leaving it with a greasy feeling. Coconut oil is extremely hydrating and protective and easily melts from a solid on contact with skin. Shea butter is an amazingly rich and gentle moisturiser that is packed with fatty acids which are easily absorbed into the skin, helping to retain the skin's moisture and elasticity. Beeswax has amazing antimicrobial and soothing properties and it helps form a protective and waterproof barrier to help keep the moisture in. Lavender, geranium and chamomile essential oils all have relaxing and calming properties and when blended together in Dream Balm the fragrance is reminiscent of an English country garden in the summer time
To use Dream Balm, apply the balm to your wrists and temples and deeply breathe in the relaxing and calming lavender, geranium and chamomile.
The balm can be used throughout the day, whenever you are in need of a bit of me time.
