Jojoba oil is an excellent moisturising, nourishing and soothing remedy to the skin. It is rich in antioxidants, which protect the skin. The texture and consistency of jojoba oil is similar to the sebum naturally produced by your skin, so it leaves the skin nourished but with no greasy residue.
Our cold-pressed, extra virgin coconut oil from Sri Lanka is moisturising and rich in skin-protecting antioxidants, including vitamin E, flavonoids and polyphenols. It is also deeply nourishing and protective. It naturally soothes inflammation and helps prevent infections.
Castor oil is gently moisturising, promotes skin health and soothes pain and inflammation. It improves blood flow and circulation, helping to relieve menstrual pain and cramping.
Cramp bark is great at relieving pain, cramps (as hinted by its common name) and improving blood flow — making it ideal for menstrual pain. It is also helpful for headaches, backache, muscle spasm, restless legs, and to reduce stress and anxiety.
Jamaica dogwood herb
Jamaica dogwood is a mild sedative which relaxes muscles. It has been traditionally used to relieve pain – particularly menstrual pain – and to alleviate anxiety and tension. It eases spasms in the uterine muscle.
Chamomile relieves spasms, pain and inflammation. It also enhances mood and helps address stress and tension. It is a mild sedative, meaning that it gently reduces restlessness and anxiety.
Rose petals are cooling and nourishing to the skin. They are anti-inflammatory and help bring calm, reassurance and relaxation.
Rosemary essential oil
Rosemary enhances and balances blood flow to the area to which it is applied – so it helps soothe inflammation, blockages and pain. It also gently eases stress and has a fresh, uplifting scent.
Clary sage essential oil
Clary sage essential oil helps ease stress, spasms, pain and menstrual cramps.
Peppermint essential oil
Peppermint essential oil creates a cooling sensation and a painkilling effect when applied on the skin. It also improves blood flow and induces muscle and mental relaxation, supporting improvements in the intensity of menstrual pain.
Cypress essential oil
Cypress helps improve blood circulation and assists with relieving menstrual cramps. It has a fresh and invigorating scent which is why we have included it in our menstrual balm.
Ginger essential oil
Ginger is a warming circulatory stimulant, promoting blood flow in the pelvic area when applied to it, which helps to ease pain, cramps and bloating.
Lavender essential oil
Lavender lifts the spirits and relieves tension, pain, stress and anxiety. It eases menstrual cramps, and its uplifting and soothing scent creates a sense of calm and relaxation.
We use candelilla wax to thicken the balm into just the right consistency and texture for gently massaging onto your lower belly. Candellila wax is very similar to beeswax. We avoid using beeswax in order to offer fully plant-based balms. It is derived from the candelilla plant, which grows in the Chihuahuan desert in Mexico, providing livelihoods to local smallholder producers (“candelilleros”) who sustainably harvest the plant. Candelilla wax is soothing to the skin, does not block pores (making it safe for oily skin) and is naturally rich in beneficial vitamin A. The plant leaf is so full of wax that you can light it like a candle!
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin with potent antioxidant properties, which naturally helps preserve the balm for longer — in addition to its natural nourishing and cleansing properties.
