Herbaceutikals Decongestion, Lip Balm and Body Butter

My thanks to the lovely Vibe Veda of Vibe’s Beauty and Jenevieve of Herbaceutikals for sending me these products.

Decongestion Vapour Rub

Ingredients: Cloves and cinnamon infused grapeseed oil blended with coconut oil, beeswax and essential oils (rosemary, lavender, eucalyptus and mints). 100% organic

Thank goodness I received this in the winter time. Herbaceutikals Decongestion Vapour Rub has been a godsend. I had a stuffed up nose a couple of times and putting this rub on my nose helped me to get over my cold much quicker than normal. This might be TMI (too much information), but putting the rub on my nose would make it run. Having a running nose would then prompt me to blow my nose. In this way the congestion and phlegm got expelled from my system much quicker than if I didn’t have this rub. Cloves, cinnamon and eucalyptus help to open the nasal passages, while grapeseed oil, coconut oil and beeswax nourish my skin and keep it moist. I didn’t get tissue paper burn from blowing my nose so often thanks to this rub. This rub can also be used for lung congestion by rubbing this into your back. I love love love this rub! It’s a great general purpose product to have around all the time. I think I will add this to my All Natural First Aid Kit! I would definitely repurchase this.

Cost: $14.00 USD, 28 g / 1 oz OR $18.95 CAD, 57 g / 2 oz

Smooth On Lip Balm

Ingredients: Calendula, comfrey, lavender, plantain, yarrow, extra virgin olive oil, virgin coconut oil, beeswax, and essential oils (a blend of mints). 100% organic

This balm is appropriately named. Smooth On promotes nice, smooth lips. I must have the Sahara Desert of lips because when I would use this balm my lips would absorb it completely and I would reapply all the time. After a week of doing this my lips finally reached their optimal hydration point and now I only have to reapply after I’ve eaten.  I love the simple and pure ingredients of this lip balm. There are some stellar ingredients in this balm. Calendula, comfrey, lavender, yarrow and plantain are anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and promote healing of the skin. Then we have the skin moisturizers: olive oil, coconut oil and beeswax which help to keep the skin hydrated. The price is really reasonable as well. My only teensy weensy complaint is that the balm is quite soft. I’m not sure how this balm would fare living in my purse during the summer time. Will it melt? I’ll have to repurchase this balm in the future to find out!

Cost: $4.00 USD, 4 g / 0.15 oz

Body Butter

Ingredients: Shea butter, coconut oil, calendula infused extra virgin olive oil and a mild blend of essential oils (ginger and a blend of mints). 100% organic

What a lovely body butter! In the jar it looks grainy but melts immediately on contact with skin. This balm has no strong scents. I couldn’t smell much of anything besides the olive oil and shea butter smell. I wish I had a larger jar because this 4 oz one went pretty quickly. My skin soaked up this butter quickly and thoroughly. Calendula calms inflamed or irritated skin, and shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil are wonderful skin moisturizers.

Cost: $16.00 USD, 113 g / 4 oz

  1. I’m definitely interested in trying this brand. My lips have been chapped lately thanks to the winter weather from my trip to the West Coast, so I’d love to try out the Smooth On Lip Balm.
