We’ve covered quite a few different topics so far in our “New Year, New You” season. Beauty concepts, new wonder products and gadgets are all the rage as people focus on a healthy new year. We wanted to bring to you something a bit more down to earth, less gimmicky and basically genuinely fabulous.
Niki’s Organic Balms
Niki’s Organic Balms are the perfect multi-tasking balm for health and beauty. Niki McGlynn, Managing Director at Niki’s Organic Balms has a background in homeopathy and reflexology and built her product range after years of searching for the right products, not finding them and then deciding to make her own.
“After years making complimentary balms to use in my therapy sessions my clients began asking me to make balms for them. It was at this point I decided to start the business and have worked hard to create all natural products that I feel comfortable using both personally and professionally.”
The products in Niki’s Organic Balms range are all natural and multi-tasking; perfect for hands and feet, face and body, plus they smell amazing! If you are looking for natural alternatives to high street beauty products, skin barriers, protectors, moisturisers then these are the ones for you.
Niki’s Organic Balms has unveiled its natural collection of balms, designed to soothe, relax and moisturise. The range features five balms, handmade in the UK, that smell and feel luxurious.
Niki’s Organic Original Balm
The balm that started the whole range off, the Organic Original Balm is a great product. When we opened it up it was like a burst of summer; a scent like citronella candles on a summers day and a hint of those yummy sherbet lemon sweets from our childhood! This balm’s sweet lemon scent helps to invigorate and uplift the senses. Made with tea tree oil and lemon tea tree essential oils, it also contains sunflower, calendula and hypericum oils, with beeswax and Vitamin E.
Naturally antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal, this balm can help to ease cracked skin, insect bites and athlete’s foot. It also acts as a hygienic hand balm and moisturiser.
Niki’s Organic Rose Balm
Light and non-greasy, it’s a great daily facial moisturiser and makes a good base for under foundation. Suitable for all skin types, it moisturises dry skin and reduces oily patches.
With rosehip, thistle and argan oils, this balm could help to repair skin damage, minimise scarring, reduce discoloration and brighten complexion.
Niki’s Organic Lavender & Chamomile Balm
Rich and moisturising, this product can be used on the entire body, including the face. Its lavender and chamomile combination calms both skin and mind. Brilliant as a hot cloth cleanser it may also be beneficial in the treatment of; psoriasis, sunburn, sleeplessness, headaches and more.
Niki’s Organic Warming Balm
When we opened this balm up; we felt a nostalgic memory of Christmas. Infused with cinnamon this balm may help to improve circulation and is perfect for people who suffer with cold hands and feet. It certainly helped warm our fingers up after a day outside in the cold. It is also popular with athletes as a way to soothe stiff muscles and cramps.
Niki’s Organic Baby Bottom Balm
A much milder version of the Organic Lavender and Chamomile Balm developed specifically for use on babies aged over six months. 100% organic, totally free from artificial preservatives and petrochemicals, this balm is a natural choice to help soothe delicate skin. Its lavender aroma can also help with relaxation and sleep.

One top tip from Niki which we found too, is that the balms are very effective moisturisers and you only need to use a tiny, tiny amount. They should soak in and moisturise your skin, if you find that they feel greasy, just put a little less on next time!
