How We Use Our Healing Balm

The original organic healing balm plant therapy

Our Healing Balm is The Bomb. (Like, literally, it’s now part of our Balm Squad!)

It’s nourishing, so soft and silky, and the perfect PT product to save your skin! Dry? Say goodbye. Itchy and flaky? Gone. Irritated? Not anymore.

We don’t like to brag….but…when you have something as amazing as the Original Organic Healing Balm, it’s hard not to! Our PT family is full of healing balm lovers and we want to share that love with you guys. Here’s some of the reason we think it’s a must-have and how we use it ourselves.

Mykeah Kranzler, Director of Marketing

child with cream on her itchy armI could go on and on about our healing balm! It was one of the first products I used from Plant Therapy when I joined, and I think I went through my first jar in a month! I use it on my hands, my feet, my elbows…it truly nourishes and moisturizes like nothing else. But more than that, it has been so good for my 6-year-old daughter and her issues with Eczema.  She struggles with flare-ups on her arms and legs, and the only thing that gives her relief is Healing Balm. It has significantly reduced her skin issues and that has been so amazing.

Mykeah is the creative genius behind all the fun we have here in the PT Marketing Department!

You might not have heard of Jamie, but trust me she keeps the Marketing Department here at Plant Therapy running smoothly!

  1. Taming frizzy hair: Rub a little Organic Healing Balm between your hands and smooth over your hair to prevent flyaways! The Balm soaks into your hair without leaving it feeling greasy and keeps frizz tamed all day. (I even got our Marketing Project Manager, Jamie Chaffin, started on doing this!)
  2. For Eczema: My youngest has very sensitive skin and serious issues with Eczema in this dry climate! Organic Healing Balm (and Better Than Kisses from our Balm Squad) are basically all I ever use on his skin. It really helps clear up his “itchy spots” and he loves that he can put it on all by himself!
  3. Cuticle repair: Jamie mentioned this above, but if you pick your cuticles (like me), our Organic Healing Balm is the BEST product to help them heal and soothe dryness.
  4. As a facial moisturizer: I replaced my very, very expensive Philosophy facial serum with straight-up Healing Balm. My skin approves of this swap.

There are so many more! But I think my awesome co-workers have got it covered.

I mean…do we even need to introduce Retha? We all love her! She’s the face and voice of the PT brand!

Itchy feet on shoesHealing Balm is so versatile! A little goes a long way. We use it for dry cracked feet, overworked hands, and sore toddler bottoms. It is a great base for Respir Aid and Sniffle Stopper during the cold season. We put a dab of Healing Balm in our hand and mix in 1-2 drops of Sniffle Stopper and apply it to our toddler’s chest when they are congested. It works great! We love it and it is a must in our home.

P.S. You may know Danny as being the man behind the camera during our Facebook Lives!

Sunburns, sunburns, sunburns! There’s really nothing better for pasty white skin trying to make its debut after a dreary winter. It helps soothe the hot discomfort and my skin recovers so quickly! Plus, the Healing Balm doesn’t break my sensitive skin out so I can use it when my face gets too much sun without having to worry about a new zit taking up residence. And I definitely cannot say that about a ton of products!

You guys know Katrina…keep an eye out for her on our Facebook Live videos and be sure to tell her you read her blog posts!

Tyler Hagan, Certified Aromatherapist & SEOR Admin

I use the healing balm in my house every day. One of my favorite ways to use our Organic Healing Balm is to moisturize and hydrate dry, cracked elbows. I also use it to ensure my little guy’s skin is nice and healthy from head to toe!

  1. Love this healing balm! I had no idea you could use it for flyaways, that’s what I will be using it for next!

  2. Nothing works on my cuticles, and if I am not careful I can get infected cuticles. So, I just opened my jar of Healing Balm and will start using it on my cuticles!!

  3. I absolutely love my healing balm. I keep it by my bed and rub a little on my feet each night to help my heels. This stuff is amazing! I never thought about using it in my hair though. Great Idea!!

  4. Thanks for these tips! I got healing balm as a part of the “Balm Squad” not too long ago. I’m so excited about using it often.

  5. So so loving the new healing balm. I had cracked a dry hands before trying the new healing balm. My hands are getting softer each time I use it. It will definitely be a staple in my home. My daughter had a suspicious spot removed on her back. The dr told her to use to keep it covered and apply vaseline, but that’s kept it moist and not healing at all. She then started to apply the new healing balm, well it started to work right away. Her spot is completely healed now. Thank you for another great product ❤️❤️❤️ Love you all at Plant Therapy

    1. I have not tried this on my hands yet, mainly scars. But this is good to know because I get very chapped hands! Thanks!

  6. I had no idea there were so many uses. I would love to try this on my hair. Can anyone describe the texture? It’s it a cream or more solid(like a lip balm)?

    1. Jen, it’s like a very pliable lip balm. Definitely not a cream, but also not something you have to dig your fingers into in order to get it out of the tin 🙂

  7. Wow! I can’t wait to try this Healing Balm! I have a little left from another brand that I thought I’d love (it’s just ok). As soon as it’s gone, I’m ordering!

  8. Recently purchased this for the first time. So many uses and can be changed up so easily by adding a little essential oil of choice.

  9. My hands are finally clearing up from winter cracking and dryness, but I’ll definitely arm myself with healing balm for next year! Will be ordering the Balm Squad soon!

  10. I love healing balm and use it frequently! Right now I’m using it to soothe my red nose from all the blowing due to newly attained allergies (blech!) I can’t wait to get the balm squad – I know it will be a great addition to my natural healing kit!

  11. Loved this article. We use healing balm for dry cracked heels ,works great & dry itchie spots. Does the old formula work on faces without breakout? Never thought i would be sorry i have a lg unopened balm i bought over Christmas sales. Lol. Cant wait to try the new recipe.

  12. Oh I LOVE this post! My daughter is newly diagnosed with eczema and I’ve tried everything. I’m definitely going to purchase the healing balm to go with the Balm Squad set that’s in my cart. Here’s to hoping it helps!

  13. We love heading balm. I use it on our baby’s bum, dry skin, and also as a cheat rub. I didn’t think to use it for hair. Interesting! We’ll always have healing balm in our house.

  14. I have been thinking about trying it for awhile. I never thought about using it for my hair or face. That definitely increases its usefulness!

  15. Just received my first order of healing bombs!! Can’t wait to start using them. So happy I found “Plant Therapy”!! Goodbye dry cracked skin.

  16. I love these types of posts with all the ways to use a great PT product. Can’t wait to try the mini set for myself and my kids.

  17. I loved the old balm and I can’t wait to try the new version. I’ve used it mostly for my feet and hands but I had no idea it could be used for face or hair?!? Good info as always.

  18. Looks like ive got something else to add to my next order….

    Wish I could have found this earlier…maybe it would have saved me from my winter eczema flareup.

  19. I’m interested in using the healing balm due to the fact that I ALWAYS burn in the summer no matter what I put on. My daughter is the same way and I think this would be useful for the warmer months quickly approaching.

  20. I use it all the time. With 2 young children, we get daily scrapes and bumps and the healing balm helps them heal fast and soothes the kids hurts quickly.

  21. I LOVE the healing balm! I already use it a ton but this gave me a few new ideas on how to use it even more! I also love how you guys just came out with the balm squad and hope you guys continue to carry it and even add more synergies to it as well!

  22. I just got some healing balm for the first time and I love it! I am using it everywhere. I also took 2 ounces of it and melted it so I could add Itch Away to it. The bugs are bad here, and I get bit every year. The hair tip was new to me. I am going to have to try that.

    1. Now that’s brilliant!! I’m going to immediately do that. Mosquito season is fast approaching in these parts.

  23. Gosh, new uses for my beloved Healing Balm! I ALREADY use it on my nails, but now I read I can use it on my hair! Awesome! Thanks PT for such a quality versatile product!

  24. I just returned from Costa Rica and I diligently applied sunscreen each morning and afternoon, except one afternoon when I forgot my feet. Ouch! I’m ordering some of this now. Thank you for the article and other suggested uses for this balm. I have dry skin year-round so I’m sure it will come in handy for the hands, elbows, etc.

  25. This is my new favorite thing from PT. We use it everyday for one thing or another. Need to order another jar soon!!!

  26. awesome info! I love the healing balm! It was good to learn many different uses for it. I am excited to try the new balm squad set.

  27. I have been looking for something to help with my sons road rash from his dirt bike accident, I have some of this and think I’ll give it a try!! So thankful for PT and all the awesome products you have and the knowledge you share!!

  28. We had really good luck with skin soother clearing up eczema on my daughter’s hands. When would you recommend using healing balm vs skin soother? Is one better in some cases then the other?

    1. Laura, if you’ve had good luck with Skin Soother it sounds like a great one to stick to! Or, you could dilute the Skin Soother in some Healing Balm for the best of both worlds 🙂 Typically I will try the Healing Balm first for a situation, then add some EOs if I feel like I need a little extra support. I hope this helps!

  29. Is the Organic Healing Balm safe to use on a 1 year old? I see that it’s kid safe, and my daughter has been developing irritations behind her knees and in her elbows, I just want to be sure it’s safe for that little before I try it.
    Thanks!

  30. I’ve used Healing Balm to prevent dry cracked hands all winter and it’s worked amazingly well!! But now I’m excited to try it on my hair. Why didn’t I think of that?!!

  31. I love the healing balm. I use it on my face, elbows, feet…anywhere that may be dry or need some TLC. I have the full-size tub as well as the Balm Squad mini’s. Love the convenience! I mixed 2 oz of healing balm with sleep and just smell-good (Rose, Jasmine, Neroli) Essential Oils and gave to my daughter to use on her feet at night to get the effect of the sleep oils and benefit from softer feet. She recently told me that she actually had callouses on her feet and they had peeled off from her putting the balm on. Wow!! I’m impressed and so was she. She doesn’t want to be without healing balm for her feet now. I just have to figure out how to get her to start paying for it. LOL. I do prefer the new formula…just a little more smooth. Less grainy! Both work great though!!
