Macropiper excelsum (Kawakawa) is native to New Zealand and is one of the most versatile natives in Rongoa (Traditional Maori medicine); it is said to be the Pharmacy of the forest!
This healing balm is amazing for helping with skin irritations such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, nappy rash, bites, burns, abrasions, general dry skin and can be used for massage as well.
The medicinal properties of Macropiper excelsum
- Analgesic & local anaesthetic
- Circulatory stimulant
This balm is purely for external use, but Kawakawa botanical extract comes in different forms which can be more beneficial for harnessing the above properties in helping with other health complaints. It is widely used in either a Tea, a botanical extract, poultice or in an infused oil form. Ive been making this balm since 2010 and absolutely love this diverse plant.
Available in 30g or 60g
This little stunner is the first part of the New Zealand Native series currently in development made in small batches with love at the clinic dispensary in Hawkes bay, New Zealand.
