Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Kim Taylor


New moms crave the sweet surrender of sleep, and that’s a fact of life. Nothing imparts it as naturally as Essence of Vali’s Sleep line. This pampering line includes massage and bath oil, bedtime balm, a soothing mist, concentrated mini vials for travel, and concentrated drops–which allow moms to to drift naturally into a relaxing slumber. Essences of lavender flowers, cedar wood, marjoram leaves, and ylang ylang petals are presented in blue organza gift sets, and are available separately as well.

Concentrated Sleep drops should be sprinkled away from baby’s skin and on crib liners instead, and nursing moms can smudge Bedtime Balm under their noses and above their lips to soothe both baby and themselves. Bath and massage oil will relax mothers, the Essence of Vali mist will freshen rooms, and the concentrated drops will work magic – this product was a CEW Beauty Award Finalist in the Home/Environmental category.

An inspired gift for a new mom is the line’s Sleep Greeting Card, which contains a 7-day supply of sleep formula and reads: The older we get, the more we appreciate the finer things in life – (inside) Like a good night’s sleep. Sweet Dreams!
