Neal’s Yard Remedies is the epitome of a natural and organic British health and beauty brand. With ethically sourced, herbal, botanical and organic ingredients in their high quality products, it’s easy to see why they’re one of the leaders in natural and organic health and beauty.
If you live in the UK, I’m almost certain you’ve encountered this brand before, even just in passing by one of their stores in your local city! I’ve already used Neal’s Yard Remedies products for years as their values align with my own holistic approach, so I was excited to try a few more of their products recently.
Did you know that Neal’s Yard Remedies was the UK’s first certified organic health and beauty brand, and they also helped in the campaign to ban plastic microbeads?! Those are some pretty great achievements! Their holistic ethos is reflected in their tree logo which symbolises that outer beauty and inner health should be in perfect balance.

Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm Review
Wild Rose Beauty Balm* is a multipurpose must-have! This award-winning one pot wonder is for all skin types to help your skin glow with radiance. It’s made with a blend of antioxidant-rich wild rosehip oil and balancing geranium and patchouli.
The beauty of this product is there’s so many different ways you can use it. One of my favourite ways is as an exfoliating cleanser – using the balm to cleanse the skin and then removing with the enclosed organic muslin face cloth. This is one of the gentlest ways to exfoliate the skin, leaving it looking bright and radiant!
I also love to apply this like a facial mask before showering to protect the skin from the hot water. You can also use it as an intense moisture boost for any particularly dry areas like elbows, knees, nails and you can even use it as a nourishing lip balm too.
You really can’t go wrong with such a versatile product! It’s definitely a luxe price point at £40 for 50ml, but a little really goes a long way with this product! It’s also 99.6% organic and the scent is just beautiful too. Try Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm here.
Frankincense Intense Cleansing Melt
I instantly fell in love with Neal’s Yard Remedies Frankincense Intense Cleansing Melt when I first discovered a mini in a Naturisimo box last year. If you follow me over on Instagram @naturiabeauty you might have already seen me mention this one before!
It’s one of those more unique products as it changes through 3 different textures. It starts off as a gel which then melts into oil on the skin. Then, when you add warm water, it emulsifies into a creamy milk consistency.
It’s just the loveliest luxurious and relaxing product to use as it has the most amazing scent of frankincense. It melts away makeup effortlessly and leaves the skin feeling super soft too. It’s another luxe price point at £38 for 100ml considering the high quality, 100% natural ingredients. I’ve already repurchased this one!
Neal’s Yard Remedies Arnica Salve
If you’ve ever experienced body aches and pains, this Arnica Salve* is a must-have soothing miracle worker! Made with organic arnica extract, this salve is super soothing and nourishing for aching muscles and joints. It can be used for massage after exercise, improving recovery time and easing any strain. Arnica is also great for bruising, and there’s even reviews online of this salve helping to reduce pain from arthritis too.
I often have aching shoulders from working at the computer and rubbing in this Arnica Salve gives almost instant relief for me! It has a lovely warming effect that soothes the muscles and it has a relaxing scent with lavender and rosemary too. It also pairs perfectly with magnesium oil spray for aching muscles so the duo are my go-to on a regular basis!

Neal’s Yard Remedies Baby Bath & Shampoo
I’ve only ever used gentle and organic products on my son’s skin. We’ve tried a few different brands, but we absolutely love Neal’s Yard Remedies Baby Bath & Shampoo! This two-in-one product is ideal for keeping clutter down in the bathroom as it can be used as both a body wash and shampoo. It works well for a bubble bath too as it makes a light foam, although the bubbles don’t hang around for too long with those little splashing hands!
It has a relaxing mild lavender and chamomile scent which makes it ideal for a bedtime bath. My son’s skin is left feeling soft and nourished and it makes his hair feel super soft too! I even enjoy using this myself occasionally! Just like other Neal’s Yard Remedies products, a little goes a long way so the bottle easily lasts several months. It’s great value for money at £8.50 for 200ml.
Children’s Hand Wash
Another great product for little ones is the Children’s Hand Wash*. It’s made with a natural blend of chamomile, lavender and propolis to gently cleanse and soothe little hands. It’s gentle enough for newborns (3kg / 6lb 10oz and over) and dermatologically tested too. It has a gentle lather and smells really lovely as well. We’ll definitely be repurchasing this one again!
Geranium & Orange Body Balm
Balms are your best friend if you have dry skin! This Geranium & Orange Body Balm* is formulated to intensely nourish dry or dull skin. It’s made with olive, pumpkin and nourishing shea butter to give the skin a moisture boost.
As I write this review, it’s currently winter so it takes some effort warming the balm in my hands to fully melt. I imagine it would be much easier to apply in the warmer months! I think it’s going to last a long time as you only need to use small amounts. It really does work great for dry skin and I enjoy using this as a spa-like treat a couple of times a week for soothed and renewed skin.
You can find these products along with their full natural and organic beauty and health ranges at Neal’s Yard Remedies.
