ABOUT

Handmade at Odd Fellows Dispensary in Arrowtown New Zealand.

Magic Balm uses a third generation recipe of 100% natural ingredients. Protecting your skin from harsh environments and the wear and tear of day-to-day life.

The local success of this multi purpose balm has led to the establishment of Odd Fellows Dispensary in 2001.

Magic balm was created during World War II by famous actress Angela Wall with the help of an admiring chemist.
Jean Condon, the mother of Sam Gent (founder of Odd Fellows Dispensary) fell in love with the recipe during her days as a famous model in London during the 1960's and 1970's.
Through out the years she sold the product and eventually passed on the recipe to her daughter Sam.
Following in her mother’s footsteps, Sam began modelling and soon after become qualified as a beauty therapist at the young age of 16. Sam started hand making Magic Balm, while living above her mothers salon in London, carrying on the family practice.
After meeting husband David Gent in London, the bass player for the Exponents, the two decided to moved back to his home country of New Zealand.
Sam, not straying from her passion, eventually opened Odd Fellows Beauty Lodge. Inspired by the natural beauty of Arrowtown, in conjunction with the challenging climate, Sam decided to bring the age-old recipe back to life and Magic Balm was born again.
Keeping the family tradition alive, Magic balm is now being handmade by the Arrowtown community. With humble beginnings, Magic balm is now available online and across selected retailers throughout New Zealand.
