The good stuff:
Organic Coconut Oil
We only use unrefined, raw, organic coconut oil. Like coconuts themselves, coconut oil is rich in many proteins. These proteins keep skin healthy and rejuvenated, both internally and externally. Proteins also contribute to cellular health and tissue repair. Coconut oil is a brilliant moisturiser for all skin types, especially dry skin and is safe for babies and kids making an excellent nappy and skin cream. It also speeds up the healing process of bruises by helping to repair damaged tissue, it penetrates deeply and is nutrient rich. Also amazing to use if your kids have knits!! We adore coconut oil for its therapeutic activity and use it as a base of many of our products.
We only use natural unbleached organic beeswax. Beeswax has a number of benefits for the skin, including an anti-inflammatory action that helps to calm and soothe. It forms a protective barrier on the skin to guard against irritants and lock in moisture. Unlike ingredients made from petroleum beeswax doesn’t suffocate the skin and won’t clog the pores. It is excellent to use for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. I have chosen to use organic unbleached beeswax for its skin healing properties. It’s also antibacterial and soothes tender skin! Bees are amazing and are in great danger around the world. Bees are not harmed during this process of the removal of the wax. We adore and respect our bees!
Natural Vitamin E
We use Vitamin E not only for its amazing skin benefits but also because it acts as a natural preservative and stops our formulas from going rancid. Vitamin E helps normal red blood cells, muscles and other body tissues to grow and remain healthy. It stimulates the immune system, helps block lipid peroxidation in cells and tissues, and can alleviate allergic reactions and help heal scar tissue. You will see Vitamin E in a few of our products as we love how it makes our products feel on the skin.
Organic Carnauba Wax
Carnauba wax is a vegetable wax obtained from the leaves of a Brazilian palm tree (Copernica cerifera) known as the “Tree of Life.” Carnuba Wax is known for it’s beautiful hydrating properties increasing moisture in the skin as well as naturally protecting it.
Lanolin is a natural and organic substance that is mainly known for its moisturizing effects on the skin. It provides a smooth barrier which protects the skin and is a natural emollient.
Organic Lavender Essential Oil
We are obsessed with organic lavender essential oil. We feature it in almost all of our products because it benefits almost every body system. Lavender essential oil smells divine and is an excellent tonic for the nervous system soothing and relaxing and supporting healthy nervous tissue function. Brilliant for anxiety, migraines, headaches, depression, nervous tension and emotional stress. Lavender is one of the three essential oils which most powerfully stimulate the growth of healthy new cells – Tea Tree and Neroli are the others. Lavender has numerous active constituents but above all, it is primarily the balancing and normalising action of the oil which makes it so beneficially versatile.
Organic Menthol Oil
Our beautiful menthol oil smells incredible and medically it’s used to clear sinus congestion, help headaches and support the respiratory system. Also really good for nausea and fever and we love it in our chesty rub balm.
Organic Cederwood Oil
A beautiful warm woody essential oil designed to give comfort known for it’s support of the respiratory and nervous systems.
Organic Eucalyptus Essential Oil
This oil has many healing properties and has been used in epidemics and infectious illnesses for thousands of years. It’s particularly known for its effective expectorant properties and is amazing for coughs, colds and respiratory conditions.
Organic Nutmeg Essential Oil
We use beautiful organic nutmeg essential oil for it’s calming and sedative effect and is a known sleeping aid. Nutmeg oil can help relieve muscle aches and pains, swelling and inflammation within the body.
Wild Crafted Murunga (Kakadu Plum)
This miracle of nature is from the Kimberleys in Western Australia and is a potent, natural wholefood source of Vitamin C and a beautiful emollient designed to soothe the skin.
Homeopathics/ Bach Flower Remedies
Bach Flower Remedies are a safe and natural method of healing discovered by Dr. Bach from 1920 – 1930’s in England. They gently restore the balance between mind and body by casting out negative emotions such as fear, worry, and indecision, which interfere with the equilibrium of the being as a whole. The Bach Flower Remedies allow peace and happiness to return to the sufferer so that the body is free to heal itself.
The Bach Flower Remedies are made from wild flowers and are safe for the whole family including pets and children. There are no known side effects or allergic reactions.
Rock Rose for terror and panic
