*Karanja Oil (Pongamia Glabra) is pressed from the seeds of the Pongam Tree. This cousin of Neem offers an array of similar therapeutic benefits to that of its pungent relative. Karanja Oil is prized for its insecticidal and antiseptic properties and is often used in pet care for the treatment of fleas, mange, and scabies. In skin care, Karanja Oil is used to treat eczema, psoriasis, skin ulcers, dandruff or to promote wound healing. 

*Borage Oil is extracted from seeds of the Borage plant, or starflower. This oil has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years. Used topically, it’s said to treat acne and similar minor bacterial eruptions, as well as more long-term skin conditions like dermatitis and psoriasis.  The magic potion in borage seed oil is a fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an omega-6 fatty acid which helps to reduce inflammation and moisture loss from the skin--thus reducing scaliness and itchiness, and increasing skin’s feeling of suppleness. It also provides a barrier against some of the triggers that can cause flare ups to worsen, such as exposure to sunlight and dry air.

*Curcuma Xanthorrhiza grows in Southeast Asia and is a member of the Zingiberaceae (ginger family). This beautiful plant is sometimes referred to as Javanese Turmeric or temu lawak. The rhizome and root of this plant contain beneficial constituents that have been used traditionally in the treatment of acne and skin inflammations as used in Thai traditional medicine. More recently studies have demonstrated antioxidative, detoxifying and anticarcinogenic characteristics. Several studies have also demonstrated antimicrobial efficacy, especially against the staphylococcus aureus bacteria.

*Tamanu oil is derived from the large, blonde nuts of the Ati tree and has been used by natives of South East Asia and the Pacific Islands for centuries as a cure-all for any kind of skin problem because of its antineuralgic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibiotic and antioxidant properties. Tamanu oil is known as a pharmacy in a bottle because it works more effectively against bacterial and fungal infections than many antibiotics.  Tamanu is also one of the most effective agents in promoting the formation of new tissue, thereby accelerating wound healing and the growth of healthy skin. This property, "cicatrization", makes the oil perfect for those suffering from acne, rashes, sunburn, insect bites and eczema, not to mention as a daily standby for razor nicks to speed healing and avoid scarring.

Please note: This balm was created to provide relief for irritated skin, however, it will not fix the root of the problem as it is usually diet, energy or stress related. If symptoms persist with continued use, you should seek advice from a health practitioner who specializes in functional medicine for proper diagnosis and treatment.
