Kawakawa (Macropiper excelsum) is known as the “Pharmacy of the Forest”. The small tree, with distinctive heart shaped leaves, is a significant and sacred plant to Maori. Kawakawa has exceptional healing properties and will relieve a variety of skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, Psoriasis etc. Can be used on minor cuts and grazes, pimples, chapped lips, nappy rash, cradle cap and just about anything else you can think of.
Kawakawa leaves contain volatile oil and two key components of this, Myristicin and Elemicin have been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory properties. By infusing the leaves in almond oil, these oil soluble constituents are able to be extracted and therefore easily applied to your skin.
