This organic NZ-made balm has been handcrafted in small batches using wild foraged kawakawa and plantain. The kawakawa has had a hot infusion over three hours in olive oil. Fresh plant material with the addition of plantain has been used for a second and third infusion. This makes a potent oil saturated with the properties of the herb. The infused oil is then made into a balm with beeswax and essential oils.

I have been using both the Kawakawa Balm and the Skin Healing Balm throughout the last year for skin problems. When I apply the Kawakawa Balm I find it takes away the pain and discomfort and promotes healing. A little goes a long way. It has worked well to combat the skin infections I have had. It is a useful addition to our first aid kit as we use it on scratches to prevent infection and bites to reduce itchiness. The Skin Healing Balm is very soothing also and has helped reduce scarring. I had a carbuncle and applied this twice a day. The wound healed quickly and there was no scar. An added bonus of the Skin Healing Balm is it is non-greasy so I am happy to use it on dry patches on my face. I highly recommend these products.


I used the Kawawa Balm on some chafing and a rash on my hand. ‘Worked like magic’!


I was so happy to find these beautiful skincare products and I have bought the facial oil and Kawakawa Balm on repeat for a while now and can’t find anything better! have dry skin and also suffer from psoriasis so my skin Doesn’t tolerate anything synthetic. I love using Holistic Recharge’s Kawakawa balm as a healing tonic for my skin as its essential oils and its medicinal qualities both soothe and heal any flare-ups. 

Using the facial oil feels like a visit to the spa as just a few drops smells divine and leaves my skin so soft without feeling oily. The essential oils within the balm and in the facial oil give a wonderful feeling of calm and well-being as well as soothes and moisturises my skin. I also love the quality of the natural ingredients and the beautiful glass bottles and jars. The balm and facial oil are very reasonably priced compared to other products on the market. 

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these fabulous holistic skin care products that soothe, moisturise, calm and heal. I love them so much I give the Kawakawa Balm to many tourists and guests as a special healing gift that has many practical uses from healing insect bites to moisturising dry skin.  I always receive such wonderful feedback and one guest used the Kawakawa Balm for sand fly bites that wouldn’t heal and the balm cleared them up in a couple of days.
