Lift Your Spirits With This Comforting Balm
A hugely popular balm, ‘Sunshine’ really is an amazing mix of aromas. One minute it’s lifting your spirits with citrus, but sniff again and it’s cosy and warm Organic Lavender and Organic Fairtrade Vanilla. The Organic essential oils of Tangerine and Mandarin make this a perfect summer balm, while the undertones of lavender and vanilla make this an ideal balm when you’re in need of some TLC.
Mumanu’s gorgeously smooth ‘Sunshine’ Organic Fairtrade Massage Oil and Body Balm gives the perfect amount of slip during a massage without feeling overly greasy and sticky like other balms can. A little goes a long way and with no spills this is the ideal balm for professionals and home use. This product is safe to use during pregnancy.
Gone are the days where you’re dripping massage oil on your sheets and towels! Solid at room temperature, just rub a little of our Mumanu Organic Fairtrade Massage Balm in your hands to turn it to oil, ready to apply for massage or, as an every day natural moisturiser. A little goes a long way… you will be able to apply enough massage oil in one go without needing to reapplying.
Silky smooth and easy to apply, our range of Organic Fairtrade Aromatherapy Massage & Body Balms are all certified to use in pregnancy. You’re in safe hands… We have EU Safety Assessments for each of our Organic Fairtrade Skincare products, specifying their use in pregnancy (and baby where stated).
Some oils, such as Lavender, are often wrongly accused of not being safe in pregnancy because it stimulates menstrual bleeding. As the International Association of Aromatherapists point out, women use lavender on their clients almost every day but don’t have continuous bleeding. ‘… the human body is intelligent and that the essential oils (found in everyday food and drink) are no stranger to the human metabolism. The body knows how to break them down and utilise them to balance the human physiology.’
We use only the highest grade ingredients in our massage oil bends. ‘Sunshine’ is safe to use on sensitive skin.

Why Organic and Fairtrade?
Why wouldn’t we?! The fundamental philosophy of Mumanu is love, kindness and respect for nature. It makes sense then to certify our balms with the Soil Association and Fairtrade Foundation. We don’t like nasty pesticides or damaging farming practises so, the only way we can avoid them is to use certified organic products. We also want people to get a fair deal, be treated well and to ensure that communities are not taken advantage of. Using ingredients from Africa and Asia, we want to know that the people we buy from are paid well and their community get direct benefits. The Cocoa industry is rife with slavery; we don’t want to be part of that. Yes, our products are more expensive than non-organic, non-Fairtrade products but this is the real, fair price of goods… that don’t cost the earth.
