Favorite Products: Honest Healing Balm

honesthealingbalm

Switching to eco-friendly or natural products can be daunting.  Conventional over-the-counter antibacterial ointment was all my mom ever used when I was a child.  But many of these petroleum-based ointments contain chemicals that I refuse to put on my child.  The Honest Company Honest Healing Balm is the only all-natural ointment I’ve ever purchased, but it has worked so well and is so conveniently packaged that I haven’t felt the urge to try other products yet.

My family has successfully used this balm for minor issues such as:

  • dry cuticles
  • blisters
  • scratches
  • mild sunburn
  • minor cuts
  • razor burn
  • hand and foot balm
  • cracked skin

The smell reminds me of salted sunflower seeds, which isn’t a bad thing.  The texture is an ultra-thick ointment – it won’t be a runny mess when you’re trying to apply it to a squirming child.  It is in a plastic tube, which some people might not like, but it’s acceptable for me.  And I have to admit, the flip-top cap and the ability to squeeze a small amount out makes it wonderfully convenient and hygenic, as opposed to glass jars of ointment that must be scraped out with a finger or spoon.

The ingredients are very clean and I have no issues with anything listed.  The fact that I can use this instead of conventional ointments makes me very happy.  This retails for $12.95 and while that is more than a tube of ointment at the local store, the price is worth it to me because at 3 ounces, it has much more product and is healthier.

This balm is great for a myriad of minor skin irritations, but if someone in my family had a major cut or infectious looking skin issue, I would naturally look into a more appropriate treatment.  But for our everyday scraps, burns, and dry skin, this balm has been excellent.
