Key ingredients


Calendula, also known as Calendula officinalis or pot marigold, is a flowering plant that has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties.

Calendula has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-septic and anti-bacterial properties making it useful in healing wounds, acne, soothing eczema, psoriasis, cradle cap and relieving diaper rash.

Calendula is also an antiseptic which prevents infection from occurring. By promoting the production of collagen, Calendula aids in sustaining soothed, hydrated skin.

Anti-inflammatory: Calendula has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation and soothe irritated skin. It is commonly used topically to alleviate symptoms of skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and minor burns.

Wound Healing: Calendula promotes wound healing by stimulating tissue regeneration and increasing blood flow to the affected area. It can be applied topically to cuts, scrapes, and minor wounds to speed up the healing process.

Antimicrobial: Calendula has antimicrobial properties that can help prevent and treat infections. It can be used topically to cleanse and disinfect wounds, as well as to treat fungal infections like athlete’s foot.

Skin Care: Calendula is often used in skincare products due to its soothing and moisturizing properties. It can help hydrate and nourish the skin, making it suitable for dry or sensitive skin types.

Anti-aging: Calendula contains antioxidants that can help protect the skin from free radicals, which contribute to premature aging. It can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.

Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet almond oil is the oil extracted from the fruit of the deciduous almond tree. It has been used for centuries to soothe the skin and treat minor wounds and cuts. It’s highly emollient which means it helps to balance the absorption of moisture and water loss.

Sweet almond oil is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and packed full of vitamins such as A, D, E and K, making it a great choice to help treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and also to reduce the signs of aging.

Moisturising: Sweet almond oil is an excellent moisturizer for the skin. It helps to hydrate and nourish the skin, leaving it soft, smooth, and supple. It is suitable for all skin types, including dry and sensitive skin.

Emollient: Sweet almond oil has emollient properties, which means it helps to seal in moisture and create a protective barrier on the skin. This can help prevent moisture loss and keep the skin hydrated for longer periods.

Soothing and Calming: Sweet almond oil has soothing and calming properties that can help relieve skin irritation and inflammation. It may be beneficial for conditions like eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.

Anti-aging: Sweet almond oil is rich in antioxidants, such as vitamin E, which can help protect the skin from free radicals and environmental damage. These antioxidants may help reduce the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines.

Lavender essential Oil

Lavender essential oil is one of the most popular and versatile essential oils. It is derived from the flowers of the lavender plant (Lavandula angustifolia) through steam distillation.

Skincare Benefits: Lavender essential oil has various skincare benefits. It is known for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, making it useful for soothing and healing skin conditions like acne, eczema, and minor burns. It can also help reduce redness and irritation.

  1. Pip

    I was gifted a pottle of this shortly after my daughter was born. Since then I have used it multiple times daily. When she was newborn and breastfeeding it was a lifesaver on sore nipples. I have also consistently used it to prevent nappy rash. Its just an excellent all round product!

    I had some pretty severe eczema on my legs, arms and back. Ange sorted me out with Kawakawa balm, Calendula and Hemp+Kawakawa and told me to try them all. I used them on different patches to see how each balm worked and was surprised to find they all worked rather quickly. They didn’t just clear up the eczema they fixed the thinning and damage done by the steroid cream as well. Would recommend rakiura balms to anyone with skin issues.

    I suffer from dermatitis around my eyes and have struggled to find anything that works and is safe. I wanted to avoid the steroid cream I was given, so spent lots of money trying to find something that worked. Then I tried Rakiura’s Calendula Balm… it took only two days for it to be pretty much gone! This stuff is amazing! Only tiny amount needed to apply, natural & organic, and a fraction of the cost of others I have tried – that’s a win win win to me! This is now a permanent feature in my morning & night routine.
