You’re viewing a MUNTED Treebrush Apothecary product.
Either a batch hasn’t gone to plan, the product is shipped in recycled or damaged packaging, or for some other reason it wouldn’t be sane to charge full price.
Why’s this one Munted?
What happens when you’re a clutz and accidentally throw a box of stock onto the ground? A few big ol’ dings! This batch of Buzzbox is brand new as of November 2022, but the packaging it’s in is slightly damaged from being yeeted onto the ground. None of the glass is damaged, it’s just big dents on the aluminium lids. If you’ve got a hard knock life planned for a brand new tin of Buzzbox, these might just have your name on them!
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. It can soothe and help to heal 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.
This honey-inspired barrier balm is designed to stay on the skin rather than quickly absorb, making it ideal as wind protection and on chapped lips, dry/flaky/cracked skin, and anything you want a barrier on.
This formula is a flavour and fragrance bomb, slightly heavy and sticky to the touch at first but excellent at shielding skin from the elements and allowing it to heal. It also contains our kawakawa and horopito infused hemp seed oil for a soothing, healing, anti-inflammatory kick, and a delightful mix of fragrant essential oils to complement the delicious honey and beeswax base note.
Why Buzzbox instead of Thuck, Thun, No Regerts or Mellow? While this balm is soothing and anti-inflammatory like the rest of the range, this balm contains lanolin, lecithin, honey and a higher percentage of beeswax than our other balms. As a result, it sits on the skin for longer and is ideal for protecting it in harsh environments, or as a barrier over angry and healing skin. It’s an excellent lip balm alternative, and is a little more waterproof than the rest of the range.
