Kawakawa (Macropiper excelsum) is known as the “Pharmacy of the Forest”. The small bush, with distinctive heart shaped leaves, is a significant and sacred plant to Maori. It has been used traditionally to treat cuts, wounds, stomach and rheumatic pain, skin disorders, toothache, bruises & abrasions.

Among its many healing properties, it is reputed to soothe:

  • dry, irritated and eczema-prone skin
  • insect bites and stings
  • skin rashes
  • poor circulation
  • bruises
  • wounds & cuts
  • burns
  • aches and pains
  • cradle cap

Kawakawa's antimicrobial and analgesic properties make it useful for treating infections, and it is really helpful in reducing inflammation of various skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and rashes.

It's non-sting, so perfect for kids and any skin scrapes!

For sensitive skin, this Organic Kawakawa Balm can help by relieving the itch and creating a gentle barrier on the skin, locking in moisture and supporting active repair. Plus it's great as an intensive night time moisturiser. Apply as needed during a flare-up, or to ease discomfort.

We recommend using kawakawa balm alongside our healing eczema balm as a soothing cream during the day to keep the skin from drying out and itching too much.

If you need some more power-packed healing, we recommend this Healing Balm.

Packaged in an Earth-friendly black cardboard jar (30g) or glass & metal jar (65g) or a metal tin (150g).

"Best purchase I've ever made, it's my 'go to' first aid balm. Especially great when I burnt my leg on my partners motorbike exhaust pipe... I was very lucky it kept the blistering at bay, took the heat and sting of it out too. Also takes the itch & pain out of cat scratches and insect bites too."  Alyze Lindsay

Sustainable Kawakawa Harvesting

We only ever harvest Kawakawa from healthy plants, on the sunny side of the bush after the dew has dried on the plant and before the heat of the day. We say a Karakia (prayer) on entering the grove and give thanks after harvesting, following Māori rongoā.

We only harvest "grandparent" leaves, the ones with the flare at their base and with "parent" and "child" leaves above them, so the plant can keep growing. If the parent or child leaves are picked, that stem cannot continue growing.

Ingredients: organic kawakawa steeped in organic olive & organic hempseed oil, organic beeswax. 30gm Earth-friendly black cardboard jar.

"The kawakawa balm is FANTASTIC! Said child also has been putting this on himself without Complaints and has taken the jar! Most definitely winners there ☺" Danielle van Hof

"Best purchase I've ever made, it's my 'go to' first aid balm. Especially great when I burnt my leg on my partners motorbike exhaust pipe... I was very lucky it kept the blistering at bay, took the heat and sting of it out too. This is it almost completely healed now. Burnt 12th of January. Also takes the itch & pain out of cat scratches and insect bites too."  Alyze Lindsay

"I have used your Kawakawa balm through a friend. It’s amazing on healing tattoos. I absolutely loved it." - Janice Nelmes

  • Light and works amazingly on my baby’s skin
    Very light weighted balm and works wonders on my 2months old’s skin -heat rashes and random inflamed redness/rashes that appears on face and body.

  • Fabulous
    Loving this balm! I have only been using it for about 3 weeks but I can already notice a difference in a pesky rash thats been troubling me (has taken the redness away so its a lot less noticeable and soothed).

  • Kawakawa Balm
    This is a lovely and nourishing balm. I've most recently been using it on a swollen leg to keep the skin soft and prevent it splitting. It's ideal for this and any other bumps, bruises and dry skin,

  • Best Product Ever!
    This beautiful Kawakawa balm is the best product I've ever used. It works magically when my dog gets rashes all over her skin with exposure to certain parks/spraying/plants. She loves it, she knows it is helping her and just relaxes into it, almost smiling as I'm applying it. She loves it so much, I left the balm (tin container) on the bench the other day, when I came home Bella had jumped on to the bench and eaten the whole tin of balm...all I was left with was a squashed, teeth mark saturated empty tin, and a very happy dog 🥰 Very grateful for such a quality and effective product 🙏
