This ointment cleared our baby's eczema in two days! The salve that the pediatrician prescribed as well as other creams we've tried did nothing for her eczema but this worked wonderfully! I rub her in with it after her bath everyday. It has been months and no sign of it returning.

Had a really bad spider bite on my face. It was swollen big and I planned to stay indoors for the day. After rubbing the ointment in, the redness was gone and you could barely tell anything was there after an hour. Really magical stuff.

Love this ointment. My toddler gets very dry skin around his mouth in winter and this ointment sorts it out within 2 days.

I used everything I could lay my hands on to try to heal a bad burn. This was the only thing which helped. It is wonderful.
25/04/2022, By Zama
I am not saying its a bad product, but it did not work for ME.
09/02/2022, By Alison
I cannot be without this wonderful balm - calms all skin itches and ailments. I actually bought this tiny jar for a friend - and she LOVES it too.
22/10/2021, By Gabby
I’m using this on my mum’s sprained arm. She says it works! It took the constant pain she had away!
19/08/2021, By Kay
As a general scrapes / wound / burn /stings / irritated skin balm, this is just the best product.
It lasts ages and the whole family makes a beeline for it when they get an 'ow-wee'.
Highly recommended.

As an aside, for burns we also use an aloe gel product.
03/06/2021, By Jay B
So disappointed that this product did not work at all on my eczema. It made no difference even after using it for a week.
23/05/2021, By A
It did work for me with regards to pain, but it unfortunately stains my clothing Hence the 3 stars

I absolutely love this product. I suffer from occasional boils and my son suffers from eczema. It is definitely working for us. What's amazing is that it works within hours. I am definitely repurchasing.
25/09/2020, By Chelle
Had a rash from Vit E oil that i used on my neck. Took the itch and rash away within two days !
Great product. Just be ware, it does have a green colour to it, so it can stain linen and clothes.
24/09/2020, By Trisha

28/07/2020, By kwadele
I have very dry and thin skin. The skin on my hands burns and itch from the sanitizers that they use at store entrances. This Comfrey Lavender and Plantain wax works very well. I feel immediate relief

Well done
27/12/2019, By Andrea
This is a little gem, smells delicious and works wonderfully. I used quite often and it is like a pat on your back, good self-care ointment.
25/12/2019, By Phumzile
My mother has been suffering from arthritis and sore knee for a while. I bought this for her as she prefers only natural products on her skin. She can't stop singing praises about it, I think she is literally obsessed with this ointment. She applies it every night before bed and she says her knee is slowly healing. I am happy I bought it for her.
25/12/2019, By Phumzile
During the day I use this tissue oil in conjunction with my body cream, but at night I apply it directly to my body because it is non-greasy and my skin loves it. It contains one of my favourite ingredients, honey. So yes, it was love at first use with this Bee Natural Tissue Oil.
11/11/2019, By Brenda
It works well
I will definitely buy it again
25/10/2019, By Margot
The uses for this product are endless, but specifically for my eczema and my personal want to use handmade products that have no unnecessary additional ingredients it's been a dream come true. I doubt I'll use anything else ever again
02/10/2019, By Hanlie
This ointment is a life saver! So many uses and discover more every day!
30/09/2019, By Melissa
Great for skin ailments. Used it on a nappy rash as well as eczema and helped. Absorbs well into the skin.
23/09/2019, By mini
Burned myself accidentally with the iron, I immediately put on this ointment - after half an hour the burning feeling was gone as well as the redness around it, no blisters occurred. Amazing!!
31/08/2019, By A
What a lovely find. Have been using it for awhile
26/08/2019, By Yoyo
Love this product! I use it on all my bites, eczema, sunburns, etc and it works like a charm
31/07/2019, By Max
This is a brilliant multipurpose ointment! I buy it whenever I'm lucky enough that it's still in stock at month end. My gran uses it on her arthritic hands, my mom on shingles and as a night moisturiser, a colleague used it on her broken ankle (had to purchase more for her after that, it helped her so much) and it's been used on sore muscles, spots, rashy dogs, and every general eina you can think of. It deserves a rating higher than the 5 stars avaliable.
22/07/2019, By Michelle
I started using this balm after being diagnosed with peri-oral dermatitis. It cleared the dermatitis completely. I now use it every day and my skin has never looked better. We also use it on rashes, cuts, scrapes and burns. My daughter uses it on facial breakouts with great success. Definitely recommended.
23/05/2019, By EM
This works!! We use it on just about anything skin related in our house. Never been disappointed. And the smell is fantastic. Love. Love. Love.
16/05/2019, By pearlene
Highly recommend, lovely multi-purpose ointment
08/05/2019, By Julia
I first bought this 7 years ago when I was visiting Bathurst. I had a boil in my nose that I tried everything for a week but nothing worked. Then I bought this ointment and by the next morning it had completely healed. Since then my family has used it for every skin ailment you can think of, there is panic in the house when it’s run out. We call it the ‘green stuff’ and we tell everyone about it!
29/04/2019, By Debbie
This ointment is the only thing that managed to heal my peeling lips and cracks on the sides of my mouth. I tried so many different brands, but none worked. It is also a great healer for elbows and any area where you may be experiencing rashes or eczema. It's really an excellent healer.
29/04/2019, By M
This ointment works quickly and effectively- we have used it for eczema, bruising and a sprain
29/01/2019, By Elisabeth B
I brought this for my son who has a genetic skin condition. He loves the fact that the ointment is not sticky and is absorbed almost immediately. It has a lovely earth aroma which we both love. Beautifully moisturising and it doesn't stain his clothes or bedding - a real bonus. His skin looks calmer and less irritated.
28/12/2018, By Juliana
Awesome product! I use it for everything from rashes to Dru skinnavd it works wonders. . I gave some to a friend for haemhorroids and it has healed them. Definitely a keeper.
21/12/2018, By Dani
A lovely ointment that I've used for burns, sunburn and itchy bites and it's been great so far! I have a large jar to keep at home and a smaller jar to keep in my bag, works a treat :)
AND so impressed that the ingredients are all grown / produced in the garden of the lady who makes it!
07/12/2018, By Sam
What a remarkable find! I am loving this particular little jar and I have to say a little does go a very long way - good value for money
04/12/2018, By Newgirlharper
My GO-TO wound care ointment. Use it on the adults and boisterous grandchildren, also on my dogs. I have 13 of them and this product is a great all rounder. I do not have to keep products for individual problems now that I keep this in my medical box.
03/12/2018, By Hanlie
I highly recommend this wonderful ointment!! For me it really works!!
14/11/2018, By Lucinda
Highly recommend for haemorroids
26/10/2018, By anonymous
This ointment really works. It delivers all the results it promises. I bought a couple of jars and stocked up
27/09/2018, By MK
I've been making the transition towards only using earth friendly products in my household. While this is a bit oily, it works wonderfully at moisturising and healing my cracked hands. I now always have a tub in my handbag!
21/08/2018, By Mignonkie
This definitely helps with healing & dryness, it also seems to lighten my scars a little. Little open wounds heal a lot faster with this ointment. Also smells divine and love the consistency
14/06/2018, By Sam
Very happy with this ointment
05/06/2018, By Tarna
I am a firm believer of Comfrey and usually buy it from my supplier. I use it on bruises and bites. My mum had a fall recently which resulted in a black eye it was terrible I applied comfrey and the next day the swelling was down. On the 3rd days the bruises around the eye that was the colour of a rainbow had disapperead. So this btl with essential oils I bought because of my mums liking to the product and the lavender that is in it. She uses it daily as a moisturiser because of the lavender and is a firm believer of comfrey. So yes I will buy this brand again
20/04/2018, By Monique
I was so happy when I found out this product is doggy friendly. My Jack Russel has a severe grass allergy which leaves him with itchy red rashes. We use the ointment every night before we go to bed and it has a wonderful soothing effect and smells amazing!
10/04/2018, By Fern
Amazing smell, perfect for all sorts of uses! From bites to sores to dry lips
07/02/2018, By Sindy
I had terrible tension on my shoulders and was surprised how quickly this product worked.
My skin takes forever to heal especially from burns. I had a minor burn on my elbow within days the skin was healing after applying the ointment daily.
Beautiful product.
09/01/2018, By Janine
Unfortunately wherever my brother and I go we always end up getting bitten by something or other. This works great to calm the itching and the redness.
30/12/2017, By CariM
This is our fourth jar - I even took one to my DIL for a general "Owie Ointment." We use it for everything from cuts and burns to insect bites and rashes. It hasn't failed me yet!
12/10/2017, By Dean
I bought this mainly to get rid of my fever blister. A few days and it was already healing well. It also helped my lips as they were dry at the time too. Very good and will purchase again when my jar is finished.
30/09/2017, By Peter
The product is helpful, being using on cystic acne. Have helped in reducing the inflammation, and the pain. I am using it too for sores on my head from shaving. A worthwhile product, and useful.
17/09/2017, By Newgirlharper
Excited to find a product which not only includes plantain but comfrey as well! A friend introduced me to the wonderful healing properties of comfrey. The lavender is a bonus. Great product to have in my medicine chest, especially when my boisterous, much loved grandkids come to visit.
22/08/2017, By Jani
This balm is amazing! It works for every skin condition you can think of. A friend inherited the last bit left, so I need to get myself a new one! The smell is great too!
30/05/2017, By Debbie
Remarkable soothing wonderful for all skin issues. Love the packaging also.
10/02/2017, By Leza
I bought this product as my young son gets so many mozzie bites despite all the various prevention methods we use, that he looks like he has chicken pox. I tried putting antihistamine creams and other insect-bite ointments on, but he still scratches them open in his sleep and they then take weeks to heal. However, having used Greenaways one night, I was amazed to find that not only did he not scratch any bites open, all of them were almost completely gone!

I have used this ointment for other skin irritations with equal success. There is one disappointment, however, that if a bite has been scratched open already, the ointment doesn work as amazingly well as if you put it on unbroken skin.
31/10/2016, By Angelique
This balm is great for healing acne and preventing moisture loss while you sleep! I use it as a spot treatment when I have breakouts and also as the last step in my evening skincare routine (over my moisturizers) to lock in the moisture and prevent my face from becoming dehydrated during the night. Works great! I am curious to try the AYA balm and compare.
10/05/2016, By Louise
love this ointment for arthritis pain! even gave some to someone else with arthritis and promised my aunt a jar too!
29/04/2016, By Tanja
From first using this to treat a rash caused by allergies to being our go to for all mozzie other insect bites, this really is a marvelous product. We use it for all skin related issues from scrapes to rashes to dry lips etc, but it truly shines in taking away an itch. A must have in our minimalist medicine box
12/09/2015, By Kwadele
My husband suffers from cold sores and this is the best lip balm that he has ever used.
13/02/2015, By Tamlyn
This is the most moisturizing , healing and soothing I have experienced on my skin. I use it to keep eczema skin from cracking and also to heal the open scratches, and it has been such a great help. So thankful!
25/08/2014, By sasha
I woke up one morning and found about 6 mosquito bites on one cheek. Usually these things takes ages to finally disappear on me, but I used this ointment and they had vanished by the next day. This balm has a lovely smooth texture and works almost immediately on itching and burning. Plus, I love the cute old-world packaging. Definitely a household must-have!
31/07/2013, By Tara
Great product. works really well at healing all my cat scratches ( I tame feral cats so I get scratched quite often). Lovely texture.
