Monkey Balm review

Balmers naturals send me a stick of Monkey balm. I have actually used this for a few years now so I am very familiar with this product. One stick lasts FOREVER and works like magic.

Co-founder and product developer Meagan McMullin explained “I am the mother of 3 wonderful boys, each with terribly dry-skin and eczema.  They would scratch that itchy dry skin to the point it would bleed.  Living in the Mountain West didn’t help either, with the super dry climate and extreme temperature swings.  After years of trying every over-the-counter and prescription cream under the sun to help my poor little Monkeys, I found out about Sea Buckthorn Oil.  It’s used in many luxury Asian and European skin care products and natural skin treatments due to its unique power to heal damaged skin and protect it from the elements. ”


The first ingredient is Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) which has been used in eastern civilizations for centuries.  My belief is that natural products should be tried before any other alternative, especially for our children and their delicate skin. Skin is the largest organ and everything we use goes into our system.

The ingredients in Monkey Balm are natural and I love them. I use coconut oil a lot in my house, but the fact that this stick has coconut oil, castor seed oil, jojoba seed oil, cocoa butter, vitamin E, beeswax, seabuckthorn berry, seed and fruit oils and plant sourced Squalene make me extremely happy.

Monkey Balm comes in an over sized stick. I LOVE that I don't have to put the product on my hands to apply. I have a spot on my neck that comes back every summer due to having longer, thick hair. I don't always have time to dry my hair before rushing out of the house, so this creates a moisture spot on my neck. This is the ONLY product that I have successfully been able to get rid of the rash. 
This will definitely stay in my must have products. I have read claims that this works on eczema, diaper rash, rough feet, dry patches of skin, and many other issues.
