The Physic Garden Saving Our Skin

Jul 06, 2018by Julie - F&F

Winter has truly made its mark and it’s now that your skin takes another turn for the worse - your skin is dry and the red patches have taken over new territories. 

It isn’t all doom and gloom as the F&F customer favourite The Physic Garden is here to soothe the struggles and irritations that your winter skin is putting you through.

Based in Melbourne, The Physic Garden use organic and wildcrafted herbs to produce soothing, velvety natural balms and deodorants. All their ingredients come from healing herbs and nourishing oils that the company source locally to ensure that each jar contains only the best performing ingredients. The company’s ethos is that nature has provided us with our very own medicine cabinet which can easily be incorporated back into our lives - this philosophy is one we adore and champion here at F&F as our go-to salves this winter have been the Eucalyptus and Skin Rescue balms.

Thicker than your average lotion, these rich formulations absorb easily into the skin and don’t leave a greasy residue behind. They're easy to use and carry around with you. 


The Physic Garden Skin Rescue with its shea butter and olive oil is a saviour this winter by creating a protective barrier from the harsh elements while also nourishing dry and irritated skin. Calendula is another skin healing powerhouse that is naturally antibacterial and works beautifully with gotu kola and chickweed - both of which have anti-inflammatory properties which help soothe itching and calm redness. The Skin Rescue contains only natural ingredients and non-irritating oils making it safe and effective to use wherever needed or for any age (it is essential oil and fragrance free). The balm is gentle and easy to apply, and a little goes a long way. It is an easy solution to keep that skin smiling throughout the remainder of the season - or any time of the year!


Another cabinet essential is The Physic Garden Vapour Rub, aka the best natural alternative to mainstream chest rubs. This Vapour Rub has all the good stuff including Eucalyptus, Peppermint, White Camphor & Rosemary, without the rubbish. It's completely natural and smells delicious. The rub can be applied to the chest & pulse points to moisturise & keep you feeling cosy. The balm works best when applied with slow circular strokes as this allows the healing herbs to absorb completely. With its 5 star rating, it’s clearly not only our favourite but our customers too!

Both balms are vegan & certified cruelty-free and are available in two sizes - mini 25g and 50g.
