This sleep balm has everything you need to get a good night of sleep. Each ingredient is hand-picked to help you feel calm, peaceful and sleepy before bed. The magnesium is especially wonderful to help calm you down quickly (since it's absorbed so well through the skin).
A few ways to increase the amount of magnesium absorbed through the skin:
- Increase the area of application
- Increase the amount of time it's left on the skin
- Increase frequency of application
- Vary the application area (scalp, armpits, inner thighs, etc)
- Increased temperature of the area of application
- Well hydrated skin (thankfully this balm is incredibly hydrating)
Our tallow comes from organic, pasture-raised, grass-fed + finished cows in Florida.

Notes: for topical use only. Always test out a new product on a small area of your skin to make sure you don't have a reaction. You will not need to use much of this at a time, and will not run out quickly! OrganicDarlings skincare is always in amber jars - that helps keep the product fresh! Just keep it out of the sun and it will last you quite a while.
ABOUT MY TALLOW: all the tallow I use comes from 100% pasture-raised cattle. They're unvaccinated, unmedicated, always in the Florida sunshine. They're raised on regenerative pastures with other animals. They're also butchered humanely.
