Kawakawa leaves were traditionally used topically for numerous conditions including, bruises, rheumatism, dry - irritated skin and minor cuts and infections. 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 incorporated into your formulations.This product is intended for external use only.
