The scent of this is very unique. I don’t know how to express it. It’s just different from everything else I ever smell. The balm itself is quite good. It can be used in multiple ways. It’s good for irritate skin, eczema, sunburn and even cuts. Not sure I will put it over cuts, but it says it can. The only thing I don’t like about this is the residue it leaves behind. I feel like my hands becomes quite oily, like after eating fried banana and you only use a tissue to clean your hand. It’s just not a comfortable feeling. The “oil” is not there, but you can feel it. So it’s not the best soothing cream to me.
