Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Body Bar's Badger Balm

7.20.2010


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).

My Badger Sleep Balm looks like this

A Calming Sleep Enhancer.

alt
Now USDA Certified Organic!

A dreamy night balm rich with precious oils to calm, encourage, cheer and relax poetic badgers and other restless wanderers. Just rub a little balm under nose, on lips, on temples or other pulse points. Or use the oil for after-bath moisturizing or soothing massage. The aroma does the work. Rosemary is the traditional herb for clear thinking, confidence, and memory. Bergamot is mentally uplifting. Ginger is strengthening and confidence-inducing. Balsam Fir is refreshing, like a walk in the woods. Lavender is the traditional sleep herb; fresh and relaxing. But Sleep Balm doesn't make you sleepy! It helps quiet your thoughts, then you fall asleep naturally.

Ingredients: *Extra Virgin Olive Oil, *Golden Yellow Beeswax, *Castor Oil, and Essential Oils of *Bergamot, *Ginger, *Rosemary, *Lavender & *Balsam Fir.

* = Certified Organic

  1. Ahh i remember 3 years back i went all the way to Spore, searching every pharmacy for Badger Balms! No one knows what was it.. i gave up and was at the airport waiting for my flight back when i popped into one of the small pharmacy (forgot name).

    That moment my eyes spotted badger balms - sleep balm, foot balm and bali balm... joy! I bought all back and love every one of them.

    Recent trip to KL i got myself a Stress Balm.. ahh so soothing.. and am very glad KL has them now :)

  4. shuaddict:

    yeah :D but instead of essential oils enveloped in bead form, this is solid balm form made with similar sleeping magic stuffs. (ok not magic lah). I'll try to snap a photo of my balm at home to show again tonight :)

    but it looks like those solid minyak angin, colorless (well my sleep balm look colorless) in the can.

  24. Ai yoh, next time you come to Singapore, you have to ask a local. There are many hidden corners in Singapore, even though it is a small country. Most foreigners just know Orchard Road.
