Body Bar's Badger Balm
what's BADGER BALM? shocked face
Yeah I didn't know the existence of Badger Balm until Buaya Wing told me about it. She's suffering from sleepless nights for as long as I know her. Each time I see her face, she looks tired as hell. I wonder what's going on in her life! she can still drag herself to work even with a couple of hours of sleep only. When I got invited to Nuffnang's Singapore Bloggers Award event to see the star studded blogger's event (it was a sponsored 3D2N stay which was awesome, I still can't believe I was invited!) I brought Buaya Wing with me as my "date". We slept in the same hotel room at Link Hotel. We tour around Singapore ourselves with what little money we had and hunted down this sleeping balm called "Badger Balm".
the famous sleeping balm
It was kinda weird that we spend most of our "shopping time" hunting Badger Balm down in pharmacies, Watsons, Guardian etc. The sales lady didn't even know what we're talking about! "Badger Balm, do you have BADGER balm?" we said? The lady answered "What is Badger Balm?". Yeah I had a hard time trying to explain the balm is not made out of badger. "Sleeping Balm, Sleeping Balm" Buaya Wing says.
Made of USDA Certified Organic ingredients with no chemicals, synthetics, GMO's, parabens, toxic preservatives or any of the other bad stuffs. Rub a little on the temples, nose, neck or skin above superficial arterial points before you sleep and it'll help you calm down and sleep.
The sales lady look weirdly back at us. I can't blame her, she's a mature lady and here we are a bunch of girls asking for Musang Balm. "Sorry miss, no Badger Balm, we have Tiger Balm" she says. Err.. no thx Auntie. Still we ended up with no Badger Balm in Singapore. We asked all possible stores that might carry them even in Sephora. I guess we were looking in the wrong place or the balms are sold out.
Badger Balm also carries other beneficial balms
(so happy that we can get them here now)
Body Bar, Malaysia which also sells other stuffs
(like Cuisine Soaps!)
Back in Malaysia and after a good few months, I come across Badger Balm in Body Bar shop (natural/organic beauty products) and guess what the thing that we were trying to hunt down in Singapore is finally being sold in Malaysia! I bought one Badger Sleep Balm RM32.80 and I have been using it to help me sleep, which it definitely did. I been waking up to a good night's rest with the aid of aromatherapy in a balm. Besides just rubbing it on my temples, I also leave it open beside my bed so I can have the calming scent throughout the night. Something that you should experience on your own to see if it helps with your sleepy nights as it did to mine (I have been sleeping late since I started blogging sigh, panda eyes).
