The good stuff:

Organic Coconut Oil

We only use unrefined, raw, organic coconut oil. Like coconuts themselves, coconut oil is rich in many proteins. These proteins keep skin healthy and rejuvenated, both internally and externally. Proteins also contribute to cellular health and tissue repair.  Coconut oil is a brilliant moisturiser for all skin types, especially dry skin and is safe for babies and kids making an excellent nappy and skin cream. It also speeds up the healing process of bruises by helping to repair damaged tissue, it penetrates deeply and is nutrient rich. Also amazing to use if your kids have knits!!  We adore coconut oil for its therapeutic activity and use it as a base of many of our products.

Organic Beeswax

We only use natural unbleached organic beeswax. Beeswax has a number of benefits for the skin, including an anti-inflammatory action that helps to calm and soothe. It forms a protective barrier on the skin to guard against irritants and lock in moisture.  Unlike ingredients made from petroleum beeswax doesn’t suffocate the skin and won’t clog the pores. It is excellent to use for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. I have chosen to use organic unbleached beeswax for its skin healing properties. It’s also antibacterial and soothes tender skin! Bees are amazing and are in great danger around the world. Bees are not harmed during this process of the removal of the wax. We adore and respect our bees!

 Natural Vitamin E  

We use Vitamin E not only for its amazing skin benefits but also because it acts as a natural preservative and stops our formulas from going rancid. Vitamin E helps normal red blood cells, muscles and other body tissues to grow and remain healthy.  It stimulates the immune system, helps block lipid peroxidation in cells and tissues, and can alleviate allergic reactions and help heal scar tissue. You will see Vitamin E in a few of our products as we love how it makes our products feel on the skin.

Organic Carnauba Wax

Carnauba wax is a vegetable wax obtained from the leaves of a Brazilian palm tree (Copernica cerifera) known as the “Tree of Life.”  Carnuba Wax is known for it’s beautiful hydrating properties increasing moisture in the skin as well as naturally protecting it.

Organic Lanolin

Lanolin is a natural and organic substance that is mainly known for its moisturizing effects on the skin. It provides a smooth barrier which protects the skin and is a natural emollient.

Organic Lavender Essential Oil

We are obsessed with organic lavender essential oil. We feature it in almost all of our products because it benefits almost every body system.  Lavender essential oil smells divine and is an excellent tonic for the nervous system soothing and relaxing and supporting healthy nervous tissue function. Brilliant for anxiety, migraines, headaches, depression, nervous tension and emotional stress.  Lavender is one of the three essential oils which most powerfully stimulate the growth of healthy new cells – Tea Tree and Neroli are the others. Lavender has numerous active constituents but above all, it is primarily the balancing and normalising action of the oil which makes it so beneficially versatile.

Organic Menthol Oil

Our beautiful menthol oil smells incredible and medically it’s used to clear sinus congestion, help headaches and support the respiratory system. Also really good for nausea and fever and we love it in our chesty rub.

Organic Cederwood Oil

A beautiful warm woody essential oil designed to give comfort known for it’s support of the respiratory and nervous systems.

Organic Eucalyptus Essential Oil

This oil has many healing properties and has been used in epidemics and infectious illnesses for thousands of years. It’s particularly known for its effective expectorant properties and is amazing for coughs, colds and respiratory conditions.

Organic Nutmeg Essential Oil

We use beautiful organic nutmeg essential oil for it’s calming and sedative effect and is a known sleeping aid. Nutmeg oil can help relieve muscle aches and pains, swelling and inflammation within the body.

Wild Crafted Murunga (Kakadu Plum)

This miracle of nature is from the Kimberleys in Western Australia and is a potent, natural wholefood source of Vitamin C and a beautiful emollient designed to soothe the skin.

 Homeopathics/ Bach Flower Remedies

Bach Flower Remedies are a safe and natural method of healing discovered by Dr. Bach from 1920 – 1930’s in England. They gently restore the balance between mind and body by casting out negative emotions such as fear, worry, and indecision, which interfere with the equilibrium of the being as a whole. The Bach Flower Remedies allow peace and happiness to return to the sufferer so that the body is free to heal itself.

The Bach Flower Remedies are made from wild flowers and are safe for the whole family including pets and children. There are no known side effects or allergic reactions.

Rock Rose for terror and panic

Cherry Plum for irrational thoughts

White Chestnut – to cam the mind of worrying thoughts.

Love and Hugs

This is without a doubt our most important ingredient in every one of our products. Our beautiful hand blended Chesty Rub is filled to the brim with love and hugs and designed to promote and enhance the health and wellbeing of your family.

    My sons are autistic and it’s a fight to use the usual store bought vapour rubs, they react to the heat & the smell. Have just tried this on our youngest and he let us rub it on him without complaint and has not reacted to any smell (which smells awesome by the way). Super happy, can’t wait to try some of the other products you have available!

    We purchased the Chesty Rub not knowing what to expect in honesty as we had such bad experiences with shop brought chest rubs, they flared our 3 sons excema and their asthma up, we decided to try the Chesty Rub after reading it had no chemicals in it and what an absolutely amazing product it has been. With 3 sick boys and hubby it has helped them breathe better at night , it eases the coughing within 10 minutes and as a mother it feel so good knowing its all natural oils that im putting on my families skin. Our only regret is not finding this product sooner , thank you so much!

    The first night I used this on Mr 4, he slept until 8.30am the next morning – the first good nights sleep since before catching a virus. It smells amazing and I’m so happy to have found an alternative to Vicks that I can trust. Def going into the yearly Winter Arsenal Box

    Both my girls (4 & 2) have been fighting colds and coughing for months. Within minutes of using chesty rub coughing eases and after a couple of days, their cough is nearly nonexistent! So very happy the girls are finally getting some uninterrupted sleep and regaining their energy.

    Excellent chesty rub- the only natural one I’ve found that I actually am happy to use on my kids. Beautiful smooth texture, not too oily, gorgeous fragrance that actually helps clear snuffles but also soothing at the same time. Only one I’ll buy now!

    Such a great product and chemical free. I love the smell and it’s not just for kids, I used it on myself and it was wonderful to finally get a goodnight sleep and ease my blocked nose and head cold.

    This isn’t just for kids!! My husband has come down sick and was coughing a lot last night so I made him put on the chesty rub!! It stopped him coughing all night and we all managed to get some sleep!! Thanks again Alisa. Makes me so happy to have a product in my medicine stash that I know is safe for us all, and actually works!

    Amazing product. Used it on my 14 month old when she had a cold and was struggling to breathe and in minutes she was asleep and so much more comfortable. Thank you!

  12. Rated 5 out of 5

    Used this for the first time this morning when my son woke at 2am coughing and congested! Rubbed on his chest, back and feet. He fell straight back to sleep and not a single cough to disturb his sleep and woke at 8am! Thank you so much! This is brilliant and will remain a staple in our household!!

  13. Rated 5 out of 5

    This product came in sooo handy last week, in a short few days he is all better.
    Our son also inhales it out of the container. He gets a bit carried away sometimes and ends up with his nose in it!

    LOVE having something I can rub on the kids… & me… when they are unwell and knowing that it isn’t filled with nasty ingredients.
    Love the smell and love the texture of all your balms. AMAZING, highly recommend.

    I love this product. Anytime my children have a cold and/or cough they ask too have this rubbed on their chests and feet. It helps so much to relive their symptoms especially their coughs. It also smells amazing!!

  16. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have used this a couple of times so far and not only does it smell amazing but it has done wonders for my daughter whenever she has a cough. It’s so reassuring to know that I’m not putting any toxic chemicals onto my daughter’s skin that could potentially be absorbed into her little body. Thank you for a great product!

  17. Rated 5 out of 5

    It is so nice to be able to use a natural non toxic rub and actually enjoy smelling this rub knowing it’s healing us!(& not putting who knows what into our skin) It’s not over powering which the kids love! We have a range of ages and we all love our chest rub!

  18. Rated 5 out of 5

    This is a fantastic product (my equal fav of all the ones I have tried so far).

    I love how comforting the smell of this is without the overpowering smell you can get with some of the commercial products. I feel confident using this on my girls.

    And it works! My Miss 2.5 suffers from the sniffles and coughs quite regularly (hello day care germs!) but this has helped so much.

    Really like this rub. I’m a convert for sure. Have been looking for a Vicks alternative. A LITTLE pricey though, so I’ll be using it sparingly.

  21. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have had a long run of my children getting sick and yes yet another one today. I have put this lovely Rub on my sons chest for a good night sleep. He was coughing earlier and I had put a bit on his throat and his cough didn’t come back. He loved the minty smell….Love it so far….and loving all the goodness in your products. I already feel like a better mum.
    “Time for a rant”………. Im just sick of depending on the chemist shelves items that are meant to be helping us but slowly poising us and our kids. Thank you, you clever little chookies, good stuff…. Your products are in my house for good. Hooray!!!!!
