Balmonds Bath & Body Oil 200ml
A totally natural emollient oil made from a unique blend of super nutritious botanicals, including hemp, olive and chamomile, suitable for use anywhere on the body, and for all skin types and all ages (from 6 weeks).
This fabulously versatile blend has a multitude of uses: you can use it as a gorgeously-scented massage oil, as a shaving oil, as an emollient after a shower to lock moisture into thirsty skin, as a facial cleansing oil or as part of a baby changing kit.
If you need an oil without even the gentle essential oils we use in this formula, try our pure and simple Omega-Rich Cleansing Oil instead.
Balmonds Bath & Body Oil is totally free from parabens, petrochemicals, preservatives or perfumes, which makes it perfect for dry skin and is also suitable for people who may be prone to eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and dry, sore, itchy skin conditions.
Suitable for all ages and skin types, including babies from 6 weeks.
Cruelty-free and suitable for vegans
This product was previously called Purepotions Skin Salvation Bath & Body Emollient Oil.
How to use
As a bath oil: add about one tablespoon of oil to warm* bath water. Take care to wash the bath thoroughly after use and to use a anti-slip bath mat as calendula oil can stain and the oils can make the bath slippy.
*if your skin is prone to eczema or other dry skin conditions, it’s a good idea to avoid having really hot baths as this can make your skin extra itchy and dry.
As a body oil: apply the oil liberally to any part of the body, face or hands as often as you need to throughout the day. Balmonds Bath & Body Oil is particularly effective as an emollient when used during or after bathing: apply the oil to skin that has been patted dry but is still a little damp to lock in moisture and keep skin soft and smooth.
As a facial cleansing oil: tip a small amount of oil - about the size of a fifty pence piece – into your palm and massage it carefully into your face, very gently working it into the areas around the eyes to loosen make-up. Can be left on for a couple of minutes if needed, especially if it’s tackling thick mascara! Then remove with either a warm, wet washcloth or warm, damp cotton wool.
It can also be used as a shaving oil, an after shaving balm, or as a beautifully calming massage oil.
Balmonds Bath & Body Oil is safe for use on babies (from six weeks) and children. It can be safely used on any area of the body, including your face, hands and feet.
Keep in a cool dark place. For external use only.

Balmonds began with a mother so desperate to find an effective, non-steroidal moisturiser for her daughter’s painful skin that she ended up making one herself.
A mother's solution
Natalie Balmond had tried countless lotions and potions, both prescribed and alternative, but every single cream on offer stung Lula’s sore skin and seemed to make things worse rather than better.
Natalie knew exactly what she needed: a cream that didn't contain anything unnecessary or irritating that might trigger a flare-up.
- no preservatives
- no fragrances
- no chemical emulsifiers
- no ingredients only there for the sake of appearance
- no known irritants, such as parabens, pegs, sls, etc.
Instead, the moisturiser had to be:
- 100% natural
- as mild as possible
- intensively hydrating
Natalie worked in her kitchen, mixing together combinations of nourishing organic oils, skin-kind herbs and beeswax. The gentle, entirely natural balm she ended up formulating worked so well and so quickly to hydrate Lula’s thirsty skin that Natalie could see straight awayshe should make it available to everyone else she knew might need it.
What is Skin Salvation?
Skin Salvation is a thick, rich, oily, beeswax-based salve, designed to soothe the itch, lock in moisture and protect from further irritation to break the itch-scratch cycle. It contains hemp seed oil which is very rich in essential fatty acids which eczema sufferers often lack, so long-term use will nourish the skin with the nutrients and oils needed to regenerate, regulate and repair the skin.
The company Natalie founded, Balmonds, now makes a whole range of natural skincare for people prone to allergies and eczema, those with sensitive or dry skin, or anyone who wants to avoid irritants, toxins or pollutants in their skincare regime.
