    Balm a la Tiger

    In 1870, a druggist in the city of Rangoon (Myanmar, formerly Burma) developed a Far Eastern ointment that became famous under the name “Tiger Balm”.

    I worked on the recipe for this balm for a long time. My recipe is inspired by the traditional Tiger Balm. It contains a variety of essential oils such as cajeput, camphor, peppermint, eucalyptus, cinnamon bark and clove. Also an olive oil macerate with chilli, lanolin wool wax and beeswax.

    Each jar of my natural balm a la Tiger is made with love and intention to ensure a quality product that can complement your wellness routine. Please note that although our product contains information about traditional uses, it does not make any medical claims.

    Vegan: No, contains beeswax and lanolin wool wax
    Weight: about 30g
    All my products are handmade, so size, color and weight may vary.

    The balm is only effective when used correctly. In order for the balm to fully develop its effect, it should be rubbed into the area in circular movements until a feeling of warmth is created. This indicates that the product is working. The feeling of freshness that follows confirms that the balm was used correctly. If necessary, it can be applied 2 to 3 times a day.

    What do you have to pay attention to?
    My balm a la Tiger contains many essential oils, which is why it should not come into contact with mucous membranes. Avoid contact with eyes and eye contour area.
    The use in children, during pregnancy and breastfeeding is not recommended!!!
    Do not use on broken skin.
    Do not use the balm if you are allergic to any of the essential oils or their contents. If in doubt, carry out a patch test.


    Keep out of the reach of children.
    Store at room temperature (15-25°C).

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

Tips to extend the life of your soap

Place your soap in a bowl that will drain (not flat on the tile or in a non-draining bowl!) And make sure it doesn't get wet between uses. This is optional, but it will definitely help your soap last longer

How long do your soaps mature?

My soaps mature 4 to 6 weeks open on the shelf so that they can dry well. My pure olive oil soap needs to mature for at least 6 months or more.

What do you use titanium dioxide for?

I use titanium dioxide to lighten the soap, depending on the raw materials, the natural soap can be green, yellow or brown. In nature, titanium dioxide is widespread in the form of the minerals rutile and ilmenite (together with iron). Titanium dioxide is non-toxic and not harmful to water.

Which soap for extremely dry skin?

All of my natural soaps are suitable for dry skin. Milk soaps in particular are ideal for dry skin.

PH of soaps, don't they dry out the skin?

Definitely no. Natural soaps (please do not confuse them with industrial soaps) are always basic. The pH value is 8.5 - 10. This is absolutely harmless to our skin. Amniotic fluid. E.g. has a pH value of 8.5 and let's be honest, is there a more beautiful and softer skin than baby skin?

What is NaOH?

NaOH aka caustic soda or sodium hydroxide is an essential ingredient in soap production. Our lye is made from common table salt dissolved in water, and electrodes add electricity to the mixture, creating chloride, hydrogen and lye. This material has been used in natural soap production for centuries. When used correctly, it can help make safe natural products. However, according to European cosmetic laws, you will not find sodium hydroxide on our labels as it is not included in the end products.

Can children use natural soaps?

Yeah sure! Children in particular benefit from the mild cleaning and natural care

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, of course I can. Just contact me directly, then we can discuss it.

Versendest du auch ausserhalb der Schweiz?

Ja ich versende auch in andere Länder. Leider kann ich dies nicht kostenlos anbieten!

Es können Zölle und Einfuhrgebühren fällig werden. Bitte informiert euch über die gesetzlichen Bedienungen in eurem Land.

Where do your raw materials come from?

It is very different. Raw materials such as rapeseed oil, sunflower oil, hemp oil, goat and sheep milk, honey, herbs and plants come from Switzerland.
Well-known raw materials such as coconut oil, shea butter, babassu oil, olive oil, grape seed oil etc. are often very transparent and easily traceable (fair trade etc.) available from wholesalers in the respective country. I don't use palm oil.

I try to avoid other raw materials or to reduce their consumption. Often I have to rely on my feelings. Transparency is important to me so that I and my customers can decide yes or no.
