Marigold and kukui herbal balm is made by infusing calendula (marigold) flowers in kukui nut oil for up to 6 weeks. The resulting oil is then gently combined with organic beeswax and organic essential oils to create a completely natural herbal salve which is suitable for even the most delicate of skin.

The kukui nut tree (Aleurites moluccana) has a long and interesting history. Also known as the candle nut tree, the fruit yields a light, natural oil, which is widely used in cosmetic preparations. Its popularity is partly due to its ability to quickly penetrate the skin without leaving behind a greasy film. For centuries, inhabitants of the Hawaiian islands used kukui nut oil in a variety of preparations to protect their skin from salt water, harsh sunshine and dry winds. Marigold and kukui herbal balm is therefore perfect for surfers and people whose delicate skin is often exposed to the elements.

Calendula or marigold, also has a long history of use in skin preparations here in Europe. A fast wound healer, calendula has the ability to quickly repair damaged skin and is one of the most effective herbs for cooling angry, inflammation; even when skin is super sensitive. Calendula has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties which means it can often be found listed as an ingredient in preparations for sunburn and insect bites. Studies suggest it may help relieve contact dermatitis. Its ability to regenerate tissue makes it an effective natural wound healer.

Lavender essential oils have also been studied for their wound healing abilities. Lavender oil restores the skin’s elasticity and helps take the sting and redness out of burns. Marigold and kukui herbal balm also contains vitamin E oil which is well known for it’s ability to soothe and soften damaged skin.

The combination of these simple ingredients makes this herbal balm the perfect solution for a wide range of irritating skin complaints including eczema and psoriasis.

As with all my hand made products, marigold and kukui balm carries the Herb Mark symbol which guarantees it’s been crafted by a practitioner trained in the manufacture of herbal medicines. Please note that this product is not suitable for people with a nut allergy.

    I bought this to help with the healing of a new tattoo, which it really did help with, but what amazed me more was the amazing (like magic) effect it had on my son’s nappy rash! He got really sore one day (to the point of bleeding) and i just reached for this salve and gave it a try, and the next day his bottom was clear, so amazed at the healing effect so quickly! I would highly recommend this salve

    Don’t be put off by the name of this wonderful salve. I have never been near a rash vest so it isn’t just for surfers! I have a beautiful blue jar of this wonderful calendula and lavender scented balm in my kitchen and use it as a hand cream. What a saviour it is as I love gardening and my hands often bear the brunt. It lifts my spirits each time I use it, as well as leaving my hands soft. Also great for cracked heels, dry skin patches and helping to heal scraped knees.

    ” Like many other good people out there, I have spent small fortunes of my hard earned money looking for skincare that works. Before I knew any better I bought high end brands with huge price-tags to help me cleanse, tone and moisturise my way to a healthy complexion and skin comfort. I listened to beautiful counter assistants who would assure me that their product was the best one for me only to find out that I paid for an expensive ornament to adorn my bathroom shelves as once again the product did not suit my particular needs. I now have an understanding that natural is best and for me it is more important now than ever to use natural products that work in harmony with my body and I am delighted to have found exactly what I need. Sarah Murphy’s skin care products are fantastic and they work. I am using the Sausage Tree Cream and the Marigold and Kukui soothing herbal balm with exceptional results and genuine skin comfort. Never again will I return to the beauty counters to stock up on chemical and preservative type skincare. Nature knows best, trust in her. Thank you Sarah”
