Merrika lip balm
Leaves from the Merrika tree, or Broad Leafed Wattle, are wild harvested then blended by hand with certified organic coconut oil, beeswax, and certified organic eucalyptus, tea tree and peppermint oils to create a soothing and nourishing lip balm with a subtle fragrance in a handy 10 gram travel tin.
The Merrika tree is a super star of bush medicine, and is prized for its soothing and nourishing properties. Merrika is used in balms, soaps and body butter made by the women at Bush Medijina.
