I love a good multi-tasker - they save time, money and space, so I've put together this guide to the absolute best natural multi-purpose balms.
In the craziness of everyday life it is so helpful when one skin care item works for a variety of purposes. Ideal for nappy rash, scrapes, dry skin, hydrating chapped cuticles and moisturising chapped lips, natural multi-purpose balms and creams are worth their weight in gold! Anything that I can use on both myself and the kids is always bound to be a winner, and a good multi-tasker will save you time, money and even space in your bag. Here are some of our favourite:
Natural multi-purpose skin balms
Egyptian Magic All Purpose Cream
The Egyptian Magic All Purpose Cream is a longtime favourite thanks to its endless list of uses. It can be used on almost any skin condition including flaky skin from pimples, scars, wrinkles and mild forms of eczema. The smooth and creamy formula is based on an Egyptian balm inspired by the women of the Cleopatra era and their beautiful looking skin.
The Beauty Chef Beauty Fix Balm
The Beauty Chef Beauty Fix Balm is rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acid peptides thanks to nourishing ingredients including fermented Young Coconut, Brown Rice, Shea Butter and Quinoa. It may help to "fix" dry and damaged skin, smooth fine lines, dry lips, dry patches on the body, damaged cuticles ... just about anything! This can be used almost anywhere on the face, hands and body.
Skin Juice Green Juice All Over Skin Balm
One of my favourite multi-purpose skin salves is the Skin Juice Green Juice All Over Skin Balm. Like a green juice for the skin, this creamy balm can be safe to use on newborns to soothe nappy rash, and it can also be used on stretch marks during pregnancy. The rich green colour comes from juicy Alfalfa Grass, while nourishing Shea and Mango Butters and Pomegranate Oil lock in moisture.
MOA The Green Balm
With a base of creamy Coconut Oil, the MOA The Green Balm also features the key ingredient Yarrow, a herb that has been used for centuries in natural medicine and skin care, so this balm can be amazing for helping to soothe rashes and dry skin conditions as well as minor cuts, grazes, athlete's foot, stretch marks and scarring. It's also beautiful as a cleansing balm as it melts away your makeup naturally!
Sven's Island Miracle Manuka Medi-Salve All Body Ointment
The Sven's Island Miracle Manuka Medi-Salve All Body Ointment really can be a miracle worker thanks to its potent antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties from Organic Manuka Leaf Oil, Chamomile and Calendula in a base of soothing Shea Butter and Beeswax. It can be used on all skin types including those with mild forms of eczema, dry skin, skin rashes and insect bites, as well as minor cuts, grazes and burns.
