Based on centuries of herbal wisdom, Archeus Vital Balm is a gentle all-rounder balm that is handcrafted with love right here in New Zealand. It can be used on skin irritations, cuts, scrapes, insect bites, bee stings, bruises, sunburn, chapped skin, dry feet and elbows. On the Archeus blog and Facebook pages you can find reviews from people who have used it on skin conditions such as eczema.
Archeus Vital Balm is only made from the finest natural ingredients. There are no synthetic nasties in it, no parabens and no artificial fragrances. We use organically certified beeswax, cocoa butter and camellia oil. These oils are then infused with the beneficial properties of comfrey, plantain and chickweed.
Over the centuries comfrey has gained a reputation for aiding the healing of broken bones and sprains and for the rapid healing of cuts and bruises; chickweed has been used for centuries to treat irritated skin and has been known to soothe severe itchiness where other remedies have failed. Plantain is excellent for all skin ailments, it is great for burns, minor wounds and rashes and acts speedily to take the sting and itch out of insect bites and stings. In addition to these infused oils, a few drops of tea tree, chamomile and myrrh essential oils have been added for their antibacterial and anti-viral properties. This is all topped off with vitamin E, which is rich in antioxidants.
How to use Vital Balm
Apply Archeus Vital Balm to clean, dry skin with your fingertips or a cotton bud. Apply as often as needed. In the unlikely event of a negative reaction, discontinue use and consult a health practitioner. Store in a cool dark place as the oil will melt if left out in the sun.
