Songbird Bee Balm is our original healing and soothing balm for scratches, burns, sunburn, cracked skin, grazes, rashes and scar tissue. It may also help with severe conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Bee Balm is excellent for everyday use as a skin conditioner and barrier cream – especially for working hands.
Consistent feedback from mothers over many years confirms Bee Balm as a highly effective and truly natural application for nappy rash. It’s natural richness makes it an ideal medium for stretch marks both pre and post natally. It is also effective for cradle cap.
Propolis, used in Bee Balm, is increasingly referred to as ‘nature’s antibiotic’ – a marvellous natural substance utilised by bees to prevent bacterial infection in the hive. Vitamin E accelerates the healing of burns and damaged skin and there is plenty of it in Bee Balm!
On application, the idea of ‘use less more often’ is one to remember. Massage into dry areas properly, working in all the excess, rather than having too much. It’s not that it will do any harm – it’s just a waste as the efficacy is at the point of contact, not on top of the layer already applied.
We have had great feedback on its use in secondary healing of scar tissue as it softens and nourishes the skin.
There are no Essential Oils or Almond Oil in Bee Balm which makes it the medium of choice for professionals who have nut-allergic clients.
It is also used by professionals who are massaging pregnant clients, or are pregnant themselves.
