The Green Balm
Using the old ways of green alchemy this balm has been specially handcrafted using the finest botanics and oils.
Use this balm on cuts, scrapes, bruises, to heal tattoos.. any kind of skin complaint.
Yarrow is an antiseptic that is known to stop bleeding. Believed to aid in pain relief, calm spasms and inflammation.
In astrology, Yarrow is considered to be feminine and is associated with Venus, the goddess of love. It can help with menstrual pain if rubbed on sore spots to ease cramping.
Yarrow's Latin name "Achillea millefolium" is said to derive from the Greek hero Achilles, who was dipped in the river Styx to make him immortal - no wonder yarrow is considered a master healer!
Plantain is a magnificent plant that has wonderful healing properties and is loaded with vitamins and minerals. Plantain is anti-inflammatory, astringent and anti-microbial with excellent healing properties. It has historically been used throughout the years for soothing inflammation and as a poultice for the treatment of stings and bites of snakes, spiders and insects.
With added Tea Tree, Green Tea and a soothing base of coconut and sweet almond oil.
Note: Please check ingredients listed to make sure that you have no known sensitivity to them.
Packaged in a handy aluminium silver, screw top tin which you can carry with you on the go and also re-use when your balm is finished.
30ml in total.
I recommend keeping this salve in the fridge in warmer weather to keep it from melting (it will always harden again however).

This balm has been a life saver with the cold weather coming in. It's perfect for cracked, chapped skin - super moisturising and doesn't leave that oily residue that other balms have because the coconut oil base just melts away into the skin. It smells incredible too with the green tea and the yarrow, I honestly can't stop using it with how good it smells. I ordered the big tin which is perfect for home but the small one might be better to keep in a bag or pocket.
I ordered 2 different lots of things from Lunar & Lux and am absolutely thrilled with them all. Some are for me and others are a christmas gift which i know my friend will adore! The packaging across the whole order is stunning， personal touches and little extras make all the difference and the products themselves smell beautiful. The Hygge candle smells creamy and sweet with a little sharpness. The Samhain candle is very gingery and a lovely alternative to the popular but artificial scents of the season. The green balm smells amazing and I am actually searching for an excuse to use it immediately! In summary I am incredibly happy with my first experience of Lunar & Lux! I will absolutely be ordering again and I wish the company every success <3
