Herbs are great for helping us care for our bodies on the outside as well as the inside. Using herbs grown here at Liliwen Herbs and adding only organic plant oils and sometimes beeswax, we have created a few special skin balms and oils for helping with a variety of conditions. So, whether it’s chapped skin, a chesty cough, or tired muscles we have something to help and support you.
So natural you could eat them!
There are no chemicals of any kind in our products, and they have only ever been tested on (willing) people! What goes on your skin is absorbed into your body, so organic and natural principles are just as important to us in skincare as in food. In fact all the ingredients are so natural and simple you could eat these products too – but we think you’ll enjoy them more on the outside! They are pure enough to use on any skin – many of our customers are buying for sensitive skin or babies’ needs. In fact the original inspiration for the first Liliwen Herbs skin balm Calendula was Lucie’s search for an all-natural product to use daily on her baby daughter, Liliwen, at nappy change time.
Made with care
We make all the body oils and balms in small batches by hand, so we can keep a sharp eye on the quality. They may have a shorter shelf life than some factory-made, synthetic alternatives, but we think they are so good you will want to use them up pretty quickly, and we make a range of sizes to suit everyone’s needs.
Calendula Skin Balm
Calendula Skin Balm is the original Liliwen Herbs bodycare product and still the most popular. Uses include soothing dry and chapped skin, lip balm, antiseptic balm for cuts/grazes, nappy barrier cream/anti-nappy rash, to soothe eczema, psoriasis. This is a high quality, very pure and natural product, containing only organic sunflower oil which is double-infused with our own-grown Calendula flowers and then set to a balm with beeswax from our own bees.
