Jungle Balm: Healing from the Indonesian Rainforest

Jungle Balm: Healing from the Indonesian Rainforest

Hailing from the rainforest in Indonesia, Jungle Balm – formally known as lawang oil – has been used for over 400 years for its marked soothing effects when applied topically to the skin.

It was a curious villager in a rainforest in Indonesia who was the first person documented to use the leaf of the Cullilawan tree on his skin, where he noticed the soothing effects within minutes. It was not long after this discovery that the leaves and bark of this unique Indonesian tree, Cinnamomum cullilawan, were cultivated and distilled to produce the essential oil known as lawang oil.

Jungle Balm has been anecdotally and traditionally used for relief of:

  • Arthritis & rheumatism
  • Sport related injuries
  • Headaches, nerve, muscular & joint pain
  • Insect bites

Jungle Balm is a sacred medicine to the Indonesian locals and the trees are carefully guarded by the locals to preserve their native cultivation practices and industry. Further to the unique effects traditionally recorded of Jungle Balm, and as it is a naturally derived essential oil, it is impossible to artificially replicate. In order to respect the traditional processes of acquiring lawang oil, and to ensure that the existence of this species is preserved, the cultivation process is ecologically sustainable and remains true to the historical methods.

To see the benefits of Jungle Balm for yourself, apply it to the affected areas of your skin and gently rub the balm in. The balm will begin taking affect within minutes of application.
