Marvel Oils are very versatile when it comes to soothing and healing life’s little accidents. The inevitable cuts and scrapes, burns and irritations can be quickly remedied if you have a few of these marvellous oils on hand.

These oils soothe the irritation and inflammation arising from insect bites through their antiseptic and antibacterial activities.

Bruises form when an area of skin is traumatised and blood vessels under the skin rupture.
