Certified Organic Fairtrade Pregnancy Massage Oil Blend
The sensual, floral and earthy aroma of Mumanu’s Organic Fairtrade ‘Love’ Balm will transport you to a summer’s day. The sweet, dry rose like aroma of Palmarosa and the woody, floral Neroli like scent of Petitgrain, bring a perfect balance to this pregnancy massage oil. ‘Love’ (formerly known as Aroha) Certified Organic Fairtrade Massage 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. All Mumanu Balms are safe to use as pregnancy massage oil.
Gone are the days where you’re dripping pregnancy 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 reapply.
We use only the highest grade ingredients in our massage oil bends. ‘Love’ is safe to use on sensitive skin.
Therapeutic Properties of Palmarosa & Petitgrain
Palmarosa is calming on the nervous system helping to relieve panic attacks and anxieties, bringing about a state of harmony. It’s strongly antibacterial and antiviral and helps to ease eczema, sinusitis, acne and fluid retention. Petitgrain is great for nervous exhaustion, helping to lift the spirit, strengthen self-confidence and promotes optimism. Petitgrain also helps to ease insomnia, flatulence (useful if you want to feel sensual!!) and nervous indigestion. Together, Palmarosa and Petitgrain smell beautiful and fresh.

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.
