The Herbs in Our Bump Balm and How They Benefit You

Mangata Apothecary Botanical Bump Balm

Dating back up to half a million years ago, various herb seeds have been found in cave dwellings. Undoubtedly, herbs are older than human history. Humans developed an understanding and knowledge of these herbs over time.

Have you ever wondered how these aromatic fragrances, vibrant hues, and an incredible array of flavours and properties are always grabbing human attention?

Certainly, herbs grabbed Stefanie’s attention, and she ended up creating a whole range of herbal products.

Today, I am here to explain our versatile bump balm and why the following herbs are used in it. I will unravel the captivating secrets behind our magical formula and how these botanical wonders can transform your skin.

Chickweed is a cute little flowering plant packed with vitamins, minerals, and anti-inflammatory benefits, especially for the skin. Our bump balm contains chickweed.

Stellaria Media (Chickweed)

Chickweed is a cute little flowering plant packed with vitamins, minerals, and anti-inflammatory benefits, especially for the skin. This delicate plant has been serving our ancestors as a herbal medicine and ointment for several decades. Now, it’s your turn to avail the benefits.

  • Healing Properties of Chickweed

This compact herb has vitamin C, saponins, flavonoids, and anti-inflammatory compounds that aid in tackling inflammation. When applied on the skin, it helps with irritation, rashes, wounds, dryness, eczema, redness, insect bite, and the list goes on.

  • Cooling and Soothing Effects

It is well known for its cooling properties. The presence of mucilage and antioxidants promotes skin repair and tissue regeneration. When applied on the skin, it forms a soothing layer giving you a cooling and healing effect.

These are the few major reasons behind choosing chickweed as a main ingredient in the bump balm. Stefanie did her research to understand the far-reaching benefits and how it can be restorative for various skin types.

Plantago Lanceolata (Ribwort Plantain)

This is another beautiful herb loaded with benefits from mother nature. It also has a rich history of usage as a herbal medicine for both body and skin. When it comes to skin benefits, it provides similar usefulness as chickweed. It also helps with skin irritation, redness, and dryness (restores skin’s moisture balance).

The antioxidants present in it along with its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties may help reduce the signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles.

Calendula Officinalis (Pot Marigold) is a vibrant ingredient in our bump balm

Calendula Officinalis (Pot Marigold)

These radiant and uplifting flowers are commonly found in various skincare products usually in the form of oil and extract. If you turn to the back label of skin care products such as creams, lotions and ointments, you might find cannula oil/extract in the ingredient list.

Basically, it also has anti-inflammatory compounds including flavonoids and saponins which promote healthy skin. Thus it can also treat skin conditions like redness, rashes, minor burns, eczema, wounds and bruises.

The anti-fungal properties of this herb may also benefit in preventing infections in minor cuts and scrapes.

Synergy of Ingredients

The combined benefits of chickweed, ribwort plantain, and calendula include:

  • Soothing and anti-inflammatory effects on the skin

The Takeaway:

It’s always advisable to read the product label, follow usage instructions, and perform a patch test before using any new skincare product.
We do realize that herbs are also composed of chemical compounds that can have side effects. We did our research and carefully composed each product with the safest possible amount that can nourish your skin in every possible way, but if you find symptoms like itching, irritation or maybe redness, please discontinue the usage and rinse your skin with cold water.
