Kawakawa Balm

What is Kawakawa?

Kawakawa was used topically in traditional Māori herbal medicine, or Rongoā, for wounds and abrasions as well as skin conditions. Kawakawa leaves contain Myristicin and Elemicin which have shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory properties, it works by removing nitric oxides from cells, reducing inflammation. The anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties makes Kawakawa Balm a hero of tackling rashes, swelling, and inflammation, as well as more comprehensive problems such as eczema and psoriasis.
