Aotea Kawakawa Nautral Healing Balm

By Aotea


A multi-purpose soothing balm based on the traditional use of Kawakawa for irritations, abrasions, and inflammation. Kawakawa leaves naturally have high anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and analgesic properties, making their extracts incredibly beneficial for relieving skin issues. Made with Sweet Almond and Mānuka Oil and beeswax from our beehives, this Kawakawa Balm is the natural and native skincare remedy perfect for dry lips and skin irritations (eczema and psoriasis), bites, sores, and nappy rash.

Handmade in small batches on Aotea. Product may vary slightly from batch to batch.


  • skin irritations such as eczema, psoriasis, and nappy rash
  • chapped lips, dry patches, and damaged skin
  • reduces inflammation in the skin


Apply Kawakawa Balm 2-3 times a day to irritated skin and then daily as the skin begins to heal. For dry/chapped skin and lips, apply a pea-size amount as needed throughout the day.

Macropiper excelsum, better known as Kawakawa, is incredibly healing. Research shows that it decreases inflammatory markers of nitric oxide as it possesses the bioactive constituents Myrsitcin and Diayangambin, which are anti-inflammatory. When your Aotea Kawakawa Balm is applied the bioactive properties seep into the inflamed or damaged tissue to reduce swelling and aid the healing process. Further, the beeswax creates a natural protective seal and the mānuka oil is deeply cleansing. Your Kawakawa Balm is 100% natural and made of only three ingredients: kawakawa infused sweet almond oil, mānuka oil, and beeswax.


  • mānuka oil
