Alchemy Skin & Soul
MIRACLE BALM Healing Balm
Healing balm for skin irritations and inflammations, apt for aiding the skin in curing rashes, stings, eruptions and spots. This is a light balm, which melts on contact with the skin, made with a base of all-natural, skin-loving oils and butters, enriched with Propolis, Calendula and Tea tree.
Propolis is a resin produced by bees and is found in their hives. It is one of nature’s most effective antimicrobial and antibacterial substances. Its healing properties are numerous and seem to have activity against bacteria, viruses, and fungi. When rubbed onto the skin, bee propolis can help to soothe inflammations and reduce pain in affected areas. Propolis has been used by many civilizations throughout our history, back to as early as 350 B.C. The ancient Assyrians and Greeks used Propolis for healing wounds and treating abscesses and tumours. The Egyptians have also used it for mummification.
Tea tree is a camphorous and highly antibacterial essential oil that has been used to treat minor wounds and prevent infection. May be effective in a variety of dermatological conditions including dandruff, acne and other skin infections.
Castor oil is a detoxifying and moisturizing oil. Penetrates deep into the skin due to its low molecular mass and is renowned for its healing skin conditioning properties. Castor oil fights off infection by inhibiting the growth of bacteria and fungi. It is an excellent antioxidant and contains many compounds which help to fight off the effects of ageing.
Calendula is well known for its properties to heal the skin and wounds, it is used in herbal medicine for cuts, burns, scratches and irritations etc. as well as for dry and sensitive skin conditions. Calendula can be incorporated into many different topical treatments such as washes, salves, poultices, steams, ointments, oils, as well as tinctures, syrups and teas as used in herbal medicine. This is a wonderful plant for using on sensitive skins and is found very often in baby care products due to its delicate and soothing action, healing the skin.

Naturally, products with natural butters will soften during the warmer months and harden in the winter which is totally normal. If melting at any time occurs, simply place the product upright in a cool place and it will harden up.
