Updated: Oct 5, 2022

Although we had a good warm winter thus far, the changes in temperatures from the freezing mornings till the warm afternoons has caused all kinds of havoc with our immune system. Sniffles are in abundance with wheezy chests & blocked noses.

Kaapse Smeervet is made from Tallow (fat) and is infused with Camphor and Eucalyptus oil. The older generations know that is good for all kinds of dry skin even eczema & when combined with camphor and Eucayptus that it creates a powerful vapour balm. The tallow insulates the chest & the oils decongests the nasal passages & airways. Bokvet is the local name for Kaapse Smeervet balm.

Baba Bors Balsam (balm) is the modern version of Kaapse Smeervet. It also has Camphor, Eucalyptus & one added essential oil - Clove oil.
