Kawakawa Balm - A Natural Healing Balm

A multi-purpose soothing balm, based on the traditional use of Kawakawa for irritations, abrasions, and inflammation. Kawakawa leaves naturally have high anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and analgesic properties, making their extracts incredibly beneficial for relieving skin issues. Made with Sweet Almond and Mānuka Oil, and beeswax from our own bee hives, this Kawakawa Balm is the natural and native skincare remedy that is perfect for dry lips, skin irritations (eczema and psoriasis), bites, sores, and nappy rash.

Handmade in small batches on Aotea. Product may vary slightly from batch to batch.


  • skin irritations such as eczema, psoriasis, and nappy rash
  • chapped lips, dry patches, and damaged skin
  • reduces inflammation in the skin


Apply Kawakawa Balm 2-3 times a day to irritated skin and then daily as skin begins to heal. For dry / chapped skin and lips, apply a pea size amount as needed throughout the day.


Macropiper Excelsum, better known as Kawakawa, is incredibly healing. Research shows that it decreases inflammatory markers of nitric oxide as it possesses the bioactive constituents Myrsitcin and Diayangambin, which are anti-inflammatory. When your Aotea Kawakawa Balm is applied the bioactive properties seep into the inflamed or damaged tissue to reduce swelling and aid the healing process. Further, the beeswax creates a natural protective seal and the mānuka oil is deeply cleansing. Your Kawakawa Balm is 100% natural and made of only three ingredients: kawakawa infused sweet almond oil, mānuka oil and beeswax.


  • mānuka oil
  • kawakawa infused sweet almond oil
  • beeswax

Aotea was founded in 2017. We are inspired by mātauranga māori (māori knowledge) and this knowledge manifests itself in our range of therapeutic skincare. Aotea is the māori name for Great Barrier Island and it is here where we are from and where we grow the native flora we use (and extract their oils) and spin these into the products in our range. This is all done by our team on our papakāinga (land).
