Do you sell in local markets?
Due to disability sadly currently we don’t.
Do you allow pickups in Dunedin where you are located?
Yes. To grow and manufacture takes time, to allow ourselves to focus on this we have found it easier to make pickups contactless, and on Tuesday, Thursday, and Weekends. Otherwise orders are sent via NZ Post Couriers every other day, ensuring you receive your order safely, and promptly.
Why do you not refer to your salves as balms?
Traditionally Salves are a combination of beeswax and a herbal oil, just as we make them. Balms are similar to salves, containing herbal oils and beeswax, but have more of a buttery texture with the addition of plant butters, such as shea or cocoa butter, because of this additional ingredient are not as strong in the herbal effectiveness per say. Balms are more moisturising and are often used on larger areas, such as the hands, or as a full body balm. The lack of water in both salves and balms means they have a long shelf life.
