ORA BODY ESSENTIALS - Kawakawa Body Bar
Kawakawa - The Kawakawa Body Bar is ideal for those with sensitive or easily irritated skin. Kawakawa is known for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial properties to give you a soothing, healing and refreshed experience.
Kawakawa is a native plant to New Zealand, traditionally a medicinal plant used by the Maori people in healing, used both externally and internally to treat a large range of health conditions .
They have foraged the dense bush land surrounding Te Mata Peak and Waimarama Beach to harvest these bright green, heart shaped leaves.
Its leaves and roots are used in many ways. At Ora they have infused Kawakawa into their products and thanks to its anti-bacterial properties it can be used to soothe skin conditions, such as eczema, cuts, bruises, insect bites, rashes and grazes. Its anti-inflammatory ability works to ease pain and discomfort associated with swollen joints and inflammation caused by arthritis and starts to heal the body.
