Four compact tins of natural healing balms to soothe common complaints when you’re away from home. By Millsteam Gardens
Each tin contains 15g of hand crafted, natural balm, made from active herbs macerated in local olive oil and beeswax. The set includes:
Natural Sunblock (Good on Ya)
A rich balm of coconut oil, olive oil, carrot oil and beeswax, with zinc oxide, that not only protects skin from the sun but also provides rich nourishment.
Warming Muscle Rub (Hard Yakka)
To ease sore muscles after a hard day's work, or recreation. Will also ease arthritis, rheumatism and lumbago. A pleasant smelling blend of St. John's Wort, which improves circulation, Meadowsweet, a natural painkiller, and Mullein, an anti-inflammatory. The flowers of these plants are infused in olive oil, for several weeks in the sun.
Natural Insect Repellent (Bugger Off)
A gentle salve to help keep mozzies, sandflies and other annoying insects away. It will also soothe itching from bites and stings. The backbone of this repellant is the NZ Titoki tree, widespread in the Hawke's Bay. Traditionally used by the Maori, the Titoki leaves have no noticeable smell but repel insects and relieve itching. Its effectiveness is enhanced by adding essential oils of NZ Manuka and Aussie Lemon Gum.
Skin Repair (She’ll be Right)
A valuable first aid and antiseptic cream containing Comfrey and Calendula to ease pain and promote healing. Safe to apply to cuts, scrapes, grazes, bruises, cracked skin and any other minor injuries you may inflict upon yourself.
