Balmonds Scalp Oil 50ml
Scalp Oil is a totally natural hair & scalp treatment, formulated as an alternative to synthetic treatments and shampoos which can strip natural oils from the skin and dry out sensitive scalps, aggravating conditions such as scalp psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, eczema or dandruff.
This gorgeous blend of different oils - herb-infused oils of nettle, calendula and chickweed, antimicrobial and stimulating essential tea tree and rosemary oils, incredibly nourishing hemp and borage seed oils - gives hair and skin exactly what they need to stay clean, healthy and hydrated. You can use Scalp Oil as an intensive overnight conditioning treatment for the whole scalp or apply just to areas that need some extra care.
Although it’s called Scalp Oil, this is actually a brilliant oil which has so many other uses all over the body!
As a beard or hair oil: with its invigorating, herbal scent of tea tree and rosemary, it makes a really great conditioning beard or ‘tache oil, smoothing, moisturising and softening facial hair of any shape or size!
As a foot rub: because we use naturally antimicrobial rosemary and tea tree oils, this blend makes a fantastic massage oil for feet that get hot, sweaty, itchy and tired! Keep toes and other areas clean and fresh with daily applications of the oil.
As a topical rescue oil: fantastic for all kinds of skin emergencies because it’s so incredibly rich in nutrients and is packed full of naturally anti-itch, antiseptic, antibacterial essential oils. Dab onto areas that need some TLC without the harsh synthetic ingredients. Great for reducing blemishes or purifying the skin.
As an inhalation oil: add several drops to a bowl of steaming water to clear stuffy heads and noses
Pro-parent anti-nit tip: it can even help ward off those annoying little visitors and is excellent for smoothing hair out for comb-throughs.
Scalp Oil is totally free from parabens, petrochemicals, preservatives or perfumes, which makes it perfect for dry skin and also suitable for people who may be prone to eczema, itchy, flaky or sore scalps, scalp psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis and other dry skin conditions.
Suitable for all skin types.

How to use
As a scalp or hair conditioning treatment: apply a few pumps of the oil to the scalp and massage in gently. It’s best used at night time and left on overnight. After applying the oil, lay a soft, old towel on the pillow to avoid staining. In the morning wash the hair out thoroughly with our Hair & Body Wash (coming soon) and Natural Conditioner (coming soon).
As a beard or hair Oil: massage a few drops into your clean, towel-dried beard or hair, preferably after bathing.
It can be used as much and as often as needed as a topical emollient, massage or cleansing oil.
Do not expose skin to strong sunlight directly after applying, as there is a risk of burning due to the product’s high oil content.
Keep cool. For external use only.
We recommend customers patch test on an unaffected area close to the affected area before use (leave for 24 hours) as some people may be allergic even to the very gentle ingredients we use in this product.
Do not use if you are sensitive or allergic to any of the ingredients in this product.

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.
It had to be better so we made it ourselves
