This handy tin of multi-purpose balm is a great natural way to help relieve stress and encourage calm whenever needed. It contains a peace inducing combination of lavender, bergamot, thyme and ylang ylang essential oils which are known for their relaxing and anxiety-relieving properties. The base of the balm is made with four simple ingredients - organic cocoa butter, extra virgin olive oil, vitamin E oil and candelilla wax, and is very concentrated so a little will go a long way.

Just rub a finger on the surface of the balm until it's lightly greased and apply where needed. Can be used on temples, lips, cuticles, under the nose – any patch of problem skin. Keep it beside the bed to help you drift off at night and in your pocket all day, handy for the moment you need a little fix.

Hand made in small batches in Cambridge, UK from 100% natural ingredients and produced using 100% renewable energy. Comes in 100% tinplate tin with brown paper label. The tin is reusable or recyclable and the label, which has been glued with a plastic-free natural almond-based glue, cannot currently be composted.

The idea for a Zero Waste Path Shop was born when two Italians, Bianca and Giulio moved to the UK to pursue their sustainability postgraduate studies.

Living in Rome, Bianca decided at the beginning of 2016 to try and produce less waste after reading an article about Lauren Singer and her trash jar. Being a Political Science graduate, Bianca moved to Scotland to follow her passion for the environment and complete a Masters' Degree in Environmental Sustainability. Together with Giulio, her very patient boyfriend, Bianca began her zero waste journey and in February 2018, decided she wanted to use what they had learned to create something that put their values into practice. They learned more about ingredients, processes and materials, and 6 months later they began producing home made zero waste products in small batches.

The couple recently moved to Cambridge where Giulio is studying a PhD in International Environmental Law, so Bianca is currently running the business solo and still makes all the products herself. She continues to put a huge amount of effort into creating a range of body care products that are sustainable in every aspect, from the ingredients used, production methods, packaging materials, and the energy used in all processes.
