Plantain (Plantago lanceolate)
Plantain is well known to alleviate inflammation caused by bites, stings, rashes, eczema, burns and cuts. Plantain also contains wide ranging antibacterial activity attributable to the biochemical aucubin and can also behave as an analgesic, soothing bites and superficial wounds. The component allantoin aids in tissue regeneration and so accelerates healing.
Calendula (Calendula officinalis)
Calendula contains flavonoids which possess powerful antioxidant properties. These compounds protect cells from pro-inflammatory compounds like C-reactive proteins. Studies have shown that calendula infused products speed the healing process and decrease recovery times. This wonder-healer contains anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which makes it an amazing wound healer and all round soothing addition to this soothing balm.
Our beeswax is sourced from Australia and is unrefined maintaining its powerful healing properties. Beeswax is rich in fatty acids and has been shown to possess antimicrobial activity and be effective for the treatment of atopic dermatitis and psoriasis with local application. It is excellent at helping keep moisture in the skin while Vitamin A gets to work to stimulate the production of new skin cells.
Immortelle (Helichrysum italicum) Essential Oil
Helichrysum italicum is a true wonder. It has anti-inflammatory, strong antioxidant and anti-microbial (both anti-fungal and anti-bacterial) properties which makes it a perfect addition to our healing Soothe It Balm.
