  • Vitamin E: Moisturizing antioxidant that heals and soothes irritated skin
  • Oleic Acid: Soothing fatty acid that softens skin and repairs damaged cells present in skin conditions like eczema
  • Stearic Acid: Essential fatty acid that creates a protective barrier on the skin and helps lock in moisture
  • Cinnamic Acid: Unique acid with highly anti-inflammatory and gentle UV protection qualities that assist with healing

Organic Olive Oil Infused with Organic Calendula Flowers: Soothing, healing oil with natural anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Gentle enough for babies, yet strong enough to heal skin irritations such as rashes, cuts, eczema and chapped skin.

Organic Olive Oil Infused with Organic Chamomile Flowers: Gentle, calming oil with natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that soothe inflamed, irritated, tender, and broken skin. 


Our Favorite Uses + Tips

Tip: A little goes a long way! Apply half of what you would normal creams or lotions.

Tip: Also works well for mild burns in the kitchen! This balm has saved me from multiple scars while making these handmade products :) 

Massage Butter: Nothing beats a massage with organic healing ingredients! The soothing sweet scents of chamomile and calendula will not only help relax you as you massage your body, but they will also work their magic to deeply hydrate dry skin.
