Traditionally used for soothing insect bites and stings, skin rashes, poor circulation, bruises, wounds, burns, aches and pains.
Kawakawa (Macropiper excelsum) is known as the “Pharmacy of the Forest”. The small tree, with distinctive heart shaped leaves, is a significant and sacred plant to Maori. Among its many healing properties, it is reputed to soothe insect bites and stings, skin rashes, poor circulation, bruises, wounds, burns, aches and pains.
We are continually surprised at the wide range of problems that Kawakawa seems to be able to remedy, and receive positive feedback on a regular basis, including treatment for eczema, arthritis, burns, as an insect repellant, and for leg pains. We've added in a large pot now due to popular demand.
Made with: Maceration of Kawakawa leaves (Macropiper excelsum) in Olive oil and Beeswax.
