Are itchy, inflamed mosquito or sandfly bites driving you crazy?
Is this hot weather causing your delicate skin to chafe?
Do your children always get little cuts and scratches that need a little TLC?
Are your cuticles dry and ragged?
There is one balm that I always have on hand to help with all of these little life emergencies – can you guess what it is?
My Go-To Balm
If you read my newsletters and follow me on social media, you will know that I’m all for keeping things simple and getting the most out of life. Less is definitely more.
So, if I can use one natural product that multi-tasks and helps me care for my family, I will!
For my family that is my Minty Foot Balm.
Yes, you read that correctly!
I use it when we get pesky sandfly and mosquito bites after a day outdoors in summer. We use it to soothe any painful chaffing. It’s our go-to healing remedy/balm to apply when our girls get little cuts and scratches.
Why does it work so well?
Our Minty Foot Balm is one of our most popular products because the special blend of natural ingredients deeply moisturise and nourish dry, cracked heels and soothe sore feet.
But it is so much more than just a foot balm!
Peppermint and Tea Tree oils have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antifungal properties that help to heal minor cuts and scrapes. Both oils are also known to keep insects away while also prevent their bites from becoming infected. They are a safe and natural remedy to soothe itchy bites, especially on young children through their cooling effect which calms the “need to scratch” feeling around a bite. Minty Foot Balm has a subtle, fresh scent that is not overpowering.
Beeswax has an amazing list of health benefits. Not only does it help to protect and repair dry skin, but it also contains hypoallergenic, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory qualities that help to care for irritated skin. Just more reasons to look after our precious bee population.
Mango butter is another gift from nature. Extracted from the mango seed, it is rich in nutrients including vitamins A, C, E, and B as well as several essential minerals and antioxidants which help to heal the skin. It also contains anti-inflammatory qualities that reduce minor swelling and itching.
