Lúlum Calendula & Plantain Everything Balm
Lúlum (low-lum) means "to sing" in the Squamish language. The name reflects the nurturing love of a mother, bringing to mind the act of singing to calm and soothe her child.
This soothing skin balm blends the ultra-gentle plant ingredients of calendula and plantain to alleviate dry, aggravated skin, or as a belly balm for pregnant women to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. It's gentle enough for use on babies and kids' skin. Take with you anywhere as a nourishing balm suitable for the whole family. The delicate floral scent of chamomile essential oil promotes serenity.

What we LOVE about Sḵwálwen Botanicals:
Sḵwálwen (skwall - win) is a luxury Indigenous brand creating botanical skin care products. Honouring traditional Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) plant knowledge, they incorporate sustainably harvested and sourced plants and organic, high quality ingredients. Each product has a Squamish name to honour the place where this plant knowledge comes from.
Creating Sḵwálwen products begins with time spent on the land — forests, estuaries, or subalpine meadows — to harvest plant foods and medicines. Using Squamish cultural teachings, Leigh approaches the natural world gently and respectfully, harvesting with techniques that are ethical and sustainable.
Once the plants are harvested it’s time to process them. This usually includes scraping bark, cleaning, hanging to dry, infusing in oil and more. After processing, it’s time to create! Leigh loves this part — developing each recipe, pairing particular plants based on their healing properties with the highest quality oils, clays and plant butters. (Her five-year-old daughter calls these her “potions”.)
Each batch of Sḵwálwen products is made with care and intention, bringing you luxurious skincare products free from harsh chemicals, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic colors and parabens.
