  1. Kayla

    Love this balm. Whenever my eczema gets bad, I use this and it calms it down immediately! I love the smell and the ease of use.
    I use it pretty permanently at the moment with washing hands all the time, and it helps keep my skin in tip top condition. Thank you!

  2. Rose Wilks

    I had some for my son and it cleared up his eczema on his face. It’s a great balm.

  3. Johnny

    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.

  4. Dianne

    This kawakawa balm worked a treat on helping to heal bilateral mastectomy scars and the nerve damage rash with eczema that followed. I’ll definately continue to use this great healing and soothing balm. Thanks Ange, you’re a star !
