Did you know that the human body has seven main pulse points? Located all around the body – from the side of the neck to the ankle and of course, our wrists, they are the points where our arteries run close to the surface

As blood is flowing so close to the surface of the skin, applying essential oils to these points means they can filter into the bloodstream quickly, supercharging the speed that you reap the benefits. Our body also takes in essential oils via our respiratory system too, that’s why inhaling the aroma just after you’ve applied and essential oil product is such a powerful thing to do.

Making the most of our Sleep Balms

Our two clever little sleep balms are specially designed for applying to pulse points at bedtime or when you want to dial down stress levels.

We have two balms to choose from:

  • CALM - with JASMINE & CHAMOMILE to help quieten overactive minds at bedtime and help you drift peacefully off to sleep
  • DREAM - with LAVENDER & BERGAMOT to help soothe light sleepers in to a deeper, more restful night's sleep

Because of their location and ease of access, the most useful pulse points for aromatherapy are our wrists and temples are the handiest places to apply them. Here’s how to get the most our of every application…

pulse point application 

To apply balm to wrists:

  • Using your two index fingers, apply a fingertip sized amount of your favorite Kiss the Moon balm to the inside of each wrist, one at a time.
  • Gently rub in the inside of your wrists together in a slow circular motion for 5-10 seconds to warm the balm and help release the aroma.
  • Holding your wrists together facing you, close your eyes and inhale the aroma. Three deep slow breaths should do it (in through your nose, out through your mouth)  

To apply balm to temples: 

  • Start by pinpointing your temple pulse point (using your index fingers, find the ‘soft spot’ on both side of your forehead, just in front of your hairline and above your cheekbone).
  • Apply a fingertip sized amount of your favorite Kiss the Moon balm to the each of your index fingers
  • Close your eyes and relax
  • Using both your index finger and middle fingers together massage gentle in to your temples using slow circular motion for 10-20 seconds
  • Take three slow deep breaths to inhale the aromas (in through your nose, out through your mouth)
