Elemis Quiet Temple Balm

Sunday evening, you're winding down in preparation for Monday morning . . .first day of the working week. You head to bed early, in a bid to get a good 7 / 8 hours kip, but you find yourself tossing and turning, struggling to get to sleep. Your brain goes into think mode, revisiting past events, thinking about the week ahead, you even start counting sheep to help induce sleep, but you're still wide awake at 2 / 3am in the morning. All of this I have experienced in the past, and I'm pretty sure I won't be alone in saying I am not the only one? No. . . thought as much!

From time to time I went through spells of being unable to sleep, so I knew I needed something to help remedy this issue. I was determined however not to visit my GP and get prescribed medication, because I really am not a fan of medication unless it's a must. So I decided to start searching online and I came across the Elemis Quiet Temple Balm. A brand I have heard lots about, often receiving many positive reviews, so I knew it was a product not to by-pass.

A powerful blend of essential oils to help promote harmony, tranquillity and relaxation.

Although it states balm, the Quiet Temple Balm is a gel which comes in a small 15ml bottle (full size) with pump dispenser. Its packaging is incredibly luxe, neat and precise, but the scent is simply divine. Loaded with the essential oils, Menthol, Centella Asiatica, Patchouli, Eucalyptus, Lemon and Ho Wood, this sure is a potion to take you to the land of nod in no time. The consistency of the gel is firm, not watery and is clear in colour. Not only does this product help with sleep issues, but it is incredibly good at reducing anxiety, tension, nerves. I am a nervous flyer, in fact I despise it, but I often use this as a way to calm myself before takeoff.

Directions of use


I take one small pump of gel to my fingertips and massage on each side of the temples of my head and wrists. I spend a good minute or so massaging my temples, ensuring the product evenly distributes and works well into the skin. I then inhale, take several deep breaths to really help me unwind and relax.

Does it work?

I'm not usually one for taking everything at face value, call me a skeptic, but honestly? This works an absolute treat. Whenever I use this and crawl into bed, I instantly feel at ease, relax and very calm. My mind isn't going 'ten to the dozen', and I can almost feel my body 'winding down'. It normally takes about 30minutes or so before I drift off into sleep, sleeping right through until the following morning. And then waking in the morning feeling refreshed, bright eyed, full of energy having had a good nights sleep.


Fab product, but this little fella doesn't come cheap, RRP £18.50. Yes, it's not a product to be adding to your weekly shopping budget, but if you're like me and despise of medication but want something that is simple, then this is a good alternative. I do however use mine very sparingly, so only as a last resort when I simply can't take anymore of the tossing and turning in bed.
 Struggling to sleep when you have a busy day ahead is not a nice feeling. You are left exhausted, irritable and if like me, falling alsleep at your desk! However the Elemis Quiet Temple is a lovely product that aims to banish those tossing and turning nights, and ensure you get a good nights rest. A simple, easy straight forward product to use which has your mind and wellness as priority to ensuring your needs are met. A product not to be wasted due to its expense, but one to bare in mind, or purchase if you long for a chilled and relaxed mind, body and soul.    

Do you suffer with sleepless nights? What do you do to help induce sleep? Would love to hear your thoughts.
