Our Favorite Products: Yoga Balm

Being an independent salon, Indigo has the freedom to choose the best products out there. We are not brand exclusive, so we have the freedom to hand pick our favorites in each category. This series is going to unpack all the wonderful reasons we chose each brand on our shelves.
Now, on to one of my absolute favorite products that is on our shelves: Yoga Balm. I often refer to Yoga Balm as my “Windex”, for fans of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, because pretty much any ailment that may befall me, you’ll hear me say “Put some Yoga Balm on it!” Most people have used a similar product for muscle aches, such as tiger balm, bio freeze, icy hot, etc. What sets Yoga Balm apart is that it is 100% organic and can work for 4-6 hours. It is also highly concentrated, like many of our other products, so a little bit goes a long way. I recommend starting with a pea size and adding more if you feel you need it.
If you have had a spa service with us, or been set up with a neck wrap at the front desk while waiting, you have probably experienced Yoga Balm before. The first smell most people associate with it is peppermint, but it packs so much more. It is made with ethically sourced bees wax, which on top of being anti-inflammatory, keeps the product on the skin without transferring to your clothes and causing “grease” stains. Yoga Balm uses essential oils such as Frankincense, peppermint, hempseed, and St. John’s Wort to naturally reduce inflammation, pain and promote new cell growth.
Being in an industry where you’re constantly on your feet can lead to aches and pains, so YB is always in my medicine cabinet. However, my personal favorite use for Yoga Balm is when I have sinus/allergy issues. I will take a small bit of it and swipe it on my shower wall before a shower, slightly out of the water. When you take a hot shower or bath, it creates a pepperminty steam that will open up your sinuses and clear your head. You can also take a dab of it and place on your temples, behind your ears and under your nose for a similar effect, just keep it away from your eyes.
We use Yoga Balm in several of our spa services, including massages. It can also be found in our cooling foot mask, in our spa pedicure, during the hot towel application. If you haven’t experienced it before, or have and loved it, you can always request it in your neck/shoulder ritual.
