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

  • it works!
    I've been having huge problems with my skin breaking out and was recommended to try kawakawa. I find I need to choose the time to use it as it leaves the skin very shiny and greasy-looking but hey it is doing the healing! I find a good time to use it is when I sit with a cuppa or in the evening when I'm not going to be washing my hands for a while. Loving this product.

  • Kawakawa Balm
    I wouldn't be without this and I use it for everything. Great for bites and dry patches as well as dry lips. It's lovely to use as a deep moisturiser once and a while too.
