Review: Monkey Balm

Organic, All Natural, and  Cruelty Free were just a few of the reasons why I was drawn to Monkey Balm.  When I read that it is used for eczema, I knew we needed to give it a try. My oldest son, Cameron, has a skin condition (similar to eczema) on one foot that causes it to constantly be dry and flaky (gross!).  His poor little toes will crack and bleed when untreated. The doctor has recommended numerous creams, including one steroid cream. Nothing has been able to make it go away completely. We have been putting Monkey Balm on it every night after bath time for a week and its almost completely gone! He reminds me every night that we have to “monkey up” his feet.

About a month ago, I had a nasty accident with a fence.  I sliced my ankle open and was barely able to avoid stitches.  For the last few weeks, the skin has been very tight and was making walking painful. After seeing how well it worked for Cameron, I figured it was worth a try.  I've been using Monkey Balm twice a day for three days now and can't believe the difference.  The skin has relaxed and is allowing free movement.  My favorite part: It is looking more like healing tissue and less like scar tissue.  I try not to be vain, but I REALLY didn't want a two inch scar on my ankle.

I absolutely love this product and will be ordering a few others.  Now, I wonder if I can get my husband to try it out on his feet….

    Thank you so much for the information! This is without a doubt something I’ll look into trying around winter time!    – Also that packaging is TOO cute!!

  2. I would love have this kind of product on hand for my 12 year old boy, but never realized all the uses for it. His skin is so awful for him {very very dry}, it brings me to tears. This sounds like it just might offer some comfort for him. Thank you for the review.

  3. Wynter Reign says:

    Something that works this well is definitely something that I need to keep on hand.

    I had never heard of this heard of this company! I have a friend with eczema & she is always looking for new natural products to try!

  6. This will be great for the winter time! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  7. I wish I would have known about this a couple of years ago when we were living in Colorado. My daughter had a mild case of eczema and nothing was helping- even Eucerin or Aqauaphor which was recoomended by her doctor. I love that its in stick form! Easy to throw in the diaper bag or purse.

  8. I have never heard of this product but think I must try it! I had an injuyr to me ear several months ago and this might work on the healing!

  9. Wow this sounds like a great product! I’m glad you didn’t have to get stitches!

    • Me too! I am terrified of needles – was my least favorite part of being pregnant. I actually called my doctor to see when my last tetanus was, because no way am I getting another one before I have too!

  10. Great for use in winter!!

  11. Wendy Buckel says:

    I love this stuff. It work wonders for my little man’s eczema. It even helped with a little sunburn on his nose. I need a stick for myself. 

  12. I absolutely love this product….it even heals acne!!!!

  13. I always get dry cracked knuckles in the winter I hope this would help that.

  14. I am so eager to try this on my children’s eczema 🙂

  15. Shaunda E. says:

    This would be great for my nephew who has eczema.

  16. Leslie Luu says:

    wow…this is like a magic stick

  17. Nena Sinclair says:

    Thanks for the info, I’m happy to see that this is all natural! I also would love to try this on my son’s eczema!

  18. Christopher Roundell says:

    Thanks for the detailed review. Would love to try this on dry, cracked elbows in the winter months.

  19. I would love to try this as I have eczema on my hands and fingers and really don’t like to put steroid cream on it as the one thing they tell you to do after applying it, is to wash your hands…but what about when it’s on your hands for treatment?

  20. i get cracked ankle just about the minority here..

  21. Lindsey Roberts says:

    Winter time is coming and this looks like it would be perfect for my families dry, cracked skin during the Winter months!!

    My son suffers from severe eczema during the winter I hope I have the chance to try it thank you!

  26. My dad has really cracked skin, I wonder if this would work? He’s tried so many different things

    • If its caused by dry skin, I’m pretty sure it will work. If its caused by something else, I don’t know. Sorry!

  27. I would love to try this on my son who always seems itchy! 

  28. What a cute name/packaging for such an essential item.  

  29. Sounds great! I’m very curious about the product and the description really explained the product very well! Thank you!
