Mellow – Kawakawa Balm


Mellow Kawakawa Balm – a not-so-secret silver bullet for irritated skin.

Smooth and creamy, Mellow kawakawa balm has a wonderful green fragrance courtesy of its cold-processed hemp seed oil and shea butter, and is especially good for super dry or cracked skin, or those who can’t have nut products in their sphere. Hemp seed oil can help with developing smoother, happier skin and stronger nails. As with all kawakawa balms, it works great on irritated skin such as razor burn, bug bites and sunburn.

Mellow’s cold pressed hemp seed oil is sourced from a company that grows and presses its oil right here in Aotearoa! Hailing from Canterbury, this new oil is fantastically fresh and deeply nourishing.

What the heck is Kawakawa Balm?

Kawakawa is a native New Zealand bush whose leaves have famously anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and analgesic properties. Treebrush Apothecary balms infuse these leaves into a skin-nourishing carrier oil, then blend with natural butters and waxes, a few choice essential oils, and packaged in convenient, reusable tins/jars. Mellow kawakawa balm can help soothe all manner of angry skin – bug bites, dry or cracked skin, chapped lips, cuts, scrapes, abrasions, eczema & psoriasis, razor burn, overwashed hands, and so much more.

Why Mellow?

Mellow started out as a request from someone for a balm without common allergens – primarily, anything nut-derived. This left hemp seed oil and shea butter as the main ingredients, with beeswax and mānuka essential oil – it’s the best of both Thuck and Thun. If you cannot use nut-derived products or have skin sensitivities, this balm might just be the ticket!

Mellow kawakawa balm is exceptionally smooth, creamy, soft and designed to soothe dry and angry skin. It has a green, earthy fragrance and absorbs readily. Give it a try if you have: cracked heels or elbows; eczema or itchy and irritated skin; chapped or cracked lips; dry or damaged cuticles; sore, overwashed hands; or razor burn. Kawakawa balm may also help with minor bruises and joint pain.

Which size to choose

One of the big differences between Treebrush Apothecary’s offerings and the rest of the pack, aside from superior texture and divine creaminess, is size options. Seriously. We understand that sometimes you just want to try a bit of everything, and sometimes you want to share a tub with the whole family!

10mL “Mini” tin: Aside from fear-of-commitment sized, our 10mL Minis are pocket-sized, lip balm-sized, whoops-there-you-are-sized, glovebox-sized, Santa mode-sized, take-on-an-adventure-sized! The most popular size sold. Grab this if you want to try before committing to a bigger vessel, compare products against each other, or want several to share around as gifts.

30mL tin: This is the one to get when you’ve got a favourite in the range, or want some mileage beyond just lips! If you’ve got quite a few places you like to load kawakawa balm onto, or you’re sharing, 30mL will last you a wee while. It’s also perfectly sized to slip into hiking packs, beach bags, or handbags for busy people and adventurers.

60mL amber jar: The serious business size. Some folks absolutely swear by kawakawa balm and use it in all manner of places. Some use it as a massage balm. Some have a pot for the whole family. In every case, this size is the one filling these boots!

To use: take a small amount of balm and gently massage into the affected area until it absorbs. If the balm is cold, you may find it easier to run your fingernail across it backwards. It can also be used as a lip balm – a little goes a long way.
