Nature Essentials’ Moisture Soap and Massage Balm
I’ve tried some Nature Essentials products before and they have not disappointed me yet. I like the fact that the company uses natural ingredients which I think is a must in this time and age.
I think that it’s important to try to go healthy in every way. The world has evolved. Everything, from the food you eat, the products you use, or the quality of air you breathe, contributes to your state of health. You don’t need to be an expert to figure that out.

Anyway, when my small jar of massage balm came, the first thing I noticed about it when I opened it was how clean the content looked. I put it under my nose and I fell in love with the scent. The label says Virgin Coconut oil, Base Balm with Peppermint and Ginger.
It’s got Peppermint in it, no wonder it smells so good!
Plus, can anything in this world be any healthier than coconut products? I remember the time when everyone I knew were taking Virgin Coconut oil and it was being sold in boxes for really steep prices.
Do you remember that? I still hear health-conscious people talking about it.
My friend, who’s gone clean in most everything she buys for her family, highly recommends coconut products. In fact, it was because of her that we’ve ditched all other cooking oils (except for olive oil) in favor of coconut oil. That’s how healthy that is.
Anyway, the label on the jar also talks about the benefits of ginger, which was one of the very few ingredients in the balm. It says that it promotes blood circulation and is anti-inflammatory, which makes it great for muscle and joint pains.
Did you know that a lot of the minor health problems you experience are related to your blood’s circulation? When you’re feeling more tired than usual, when you’re experiencing cramps, or when your scratches are taking longer to heal, these are all related to your blood circulation.
Massage balm and migraine
I knew exactly when to use my jar of massage balm. Every month, I go through migraine, which basically stops my world because of how painful it gets. The scent of the balm alone helped soothe my headaches.
Because I’m a writer who’s stuck a certain pose as I type on my desk for hours, most of my back pains are concentrated in my upper back, shoulders and neck. I could really feel the peppermint penetrate through my skin and relieve me of some of my discomfort when I used it.
I have my Nature Essentials massage balm in my desk drawer now, so I can easily get some whenever I need to.
I also use it to give my kids back rubs and they’re all so senorito-like, lying there, loving every minute of it, haha! It helps calm them down and put them to sleep, especially our youngest who is such a ball of energy!
By the way, you can’t use the balm on the kids’ faces, just on their legs, arms and back.
Nature Moisture Soap
I used to buy bars of soaps from an all natural soap stand in ATC when I was in my youth. I love soaps like this because they’re gentle to the skin.
Nature Essentials made the soap unscented so it can be used for babies. That’s how gentle it’s made.
I used it on my face the night I got it and in the morning, I saw that my face was brighter and so much clean-looking than the day before. I checked the skin of my face with my fingers and it felt supple, not dry and squeaky.
Soaps that do that (dry and squeaky) usually cause break outs.
I also tried it on my kids and I really felt how soft their skin got. I wasn’t afraid to use it on their faces because I knew it was safe for them.
Nature Moisture soap has healing properties. It’s good for really dry skin, like the areas I’m having problems with such the balls on the outer side of my feet and my elbows.
I also like that it helps soothe itchiness. You see, I’ve got boys and they’re pretty rowdy, I can’t help them being bitten by insects and ants. And the worse part is when they start scratching them hard.
I tried it on our youngest and immediately, his scratching stopped. Label says it calms stings and rashes. I haven’t tried it on those yet, but I tend to take the manufacturer’s word when I’ve tested that everything else they say on the label is true.
So there goes my verdict on Nature Essentials Moisture soap and Massage balm. If you’re interested to purchase these products, you can order them online or connect with Charm at the contact details I’ve included below.

Very gratifying to hear that your massage balm can relieve your headaches. I guess that is the peppermint at work. Interesting too how the soap can arrest itching.

My weakness <3
The soap looks so promising… Will definitely try this, especially the balm. These turning to be a collection! Lol
I’m a hoarder of “natural” and “organic” soaps before. Just say those magic words and I’m sold. I still use them once in while, when I need to take a break from all the whitening soaps I use. Sorta like a detox 😛
If it is natural it is definitely worth trying for my kids as nowadays with so many products in the market really difficult to figure out which is best. Peppermint smells awesome.
These products sound amazing! I’m also quite obsessed with natural soaps and the like so I’m definitely checking this out! 😀
Seems it is a great product. If I can find it at my place, I will have a try. Thank you.

This is something I can use for my kids. A must try for me 🙂
I’m a big fan of healthy and natural products, especially if it means helping people and the environment. Nice review! I hope to try this product soon. 🙂
You had me at coconut oil. :-).

I’m interested to try the soap! My skin has been rebelling lately coz of the dust I’ve been exposed to from moving houses. I think this might be exactly what I need.

I love the sound of the ingredients, you got my attention at peppermint lol!
These sound like great products. I like using peppermint oil for minor aches and pains.
I haven’t heard of these products and I’d want to try massage balm. I’m happy to know that it has a peppermint scent which I really love.

I’m a huge fan of massage balms. I use it for headaches too ( it’s always my go-to remedy over paracetamol ). It also relaxes me mid-day or after a long day. I’ll definitely check out Nature Essentials.
I would love to try their moisture soap too 😀
organic peppermint masage balm, just the sound of it paints rest for me. thanks for sharing.
I have migraine problem from past couple of years and tried many products, but didn’t get a longer relief. And now as per your review I hope to try this product soon.
Peppermint and ginger oil sounds wonderful! Also need this as I sit for long hours at my desk, too!
I like that they made it really tender and even good for babies. It is also really effective.

I’m already thinking about the happy smell of peppermint! Will love to try this if there;s a chance!
I wonder how much does the moisture soap and massage balm costs?
May De Jesus-Palacpac
Hi Karen! Nature Essential Moisture Soap is Php 250 and the Massage Balm is Php 260. You order them online or you can viber them at the details I’ve provided above.
I like anything with peppermint. The scent is just so soothing. gonna ask my wife to look for this.
peppermint! plus coconut oil equals feeling good after massage
Natural products are the best. Hmm..coconut ang maganda for cooking? 🙂
The massage balm looks interesting. Anything with “mint” agrees with me 🙂
peppermint and ginger sounds like a lovely scent combination! mmmm
Not a fan of massage balms but I love the smell of peppermint, lol. The soap got me really interested, I love that it can soothe itchiness.
I love using this product. I have one here, but its another product from Nature Essentials. Nice review.

I am eyeing the Peppermint flavored massage balm. I think it will suit my aching back and feet. 🙂
I like the idea of kids acting like senorito and senorito while having the calming back massage.
I know and I understand to enjoy life to its fulleset is to stay healthy. Happiness is too dependent on one’s state of being healthy. Health is wealth so to speak.
How’s ur migraine now? I suffer from chronic headaches too. Would be good to find a product that helps.

Migraine was over in a day’s time. 🙂 I still had to take a pain reliever but the balm helped a lot.
Hmmm, one fact about these natural solutions: they are really effective. I will check this out soon because Mike’s skin is sensitive and he needs the massage balm badly!
I learn so much from reading your blog and others that do similar posts. Frankly i had never had about a massage balm until i read it here. 🙂
I like to try their soap. When I was in college, my facial cleanser is just a soap that you can buy on any natural product stands in the mall. So far, they did well in clearing my break outs compared to branded facial cleanser in the market.

I love Peppermint! I wanna try that Massage Balm and I’m sure I will love it.
I want to try the massage balm. I’m sure it’s going to help cure the aches and pains I get after doing chores. 🙂
