Have you been feeling stressed or overwhelmed lately? Have you had a long day and need to wind down? Take a moment for yourself to relax with our DIY calm balm.

We've seen that calm balms are a popular choice when taking a natural approach to relieving stress and anxiety, so we thought we'd share with you how to create your own at a fraction of the cost!

Calm balms are made with nourishing butters, oils and a select fragrance blend to unwind and calm the mind. They are also moisturising leaving the skin smooth and hydrated.

Calm balms can be applied to pulse points like the temples, wrists and neck. When the balm is applied to these areas, the aroma from the essential oils is inhaled and creates a calming effect.

Lets have a go at our easy calm balm recipe...
