Spruce resin

Records of the healing effects of spruce resin and methods of use date back to the time of Hippocrates. Spruce resin protects spruce from drying out and helps it heal the damaged part of the trunk or branch. Conifer resins are a mixture of diterpene organic carboxylic acids and essential oil. The resin is formed in the resin glands in the tree. Heals damage to the trunk of a tree and does the same with damage to our skin.


Smrekomaz was created on the basis of our own research conducted in recent years in collaboration with an experienced team and test users of different age groups. We had designed texture of Smrekomaz in cooperation with the massage and relaxation center. Taking into environmental aspect, we prepared returnable glass packaging.


Spruce resin, sunflower oil, olive oil and beeswax. Sunflower oil is rich in vitamins A, C, D and E and does not clog skin pores. Olive oil is an indispensable part of a healthy life and personal care products. Beeswax provides a firmer texture to the balm, but it also has a few healing properties. The lifespan of balm is extended by storage in the refrigerator, but is not necessarily necessary.


Spruce resin is a mixture of a firmer structure that is soluble in oil and contains essential oil and a lot of resin acids.

Records of the healing effects of spruce resin and methods of use date back to the time of Hippocrates. It was mostly used for skin diseases and injuries - healing wounds, inflammations, purulent and fungal ulcers, burns, abrasions, bruising, bruising and similar skin problems.

The main and unique ingredient of Smrekomaz is spruce resin, which can be harvested throughout the year.

We collect spruce resin with the help of a wooden stick, without damaging the tree. There are many spruces that have damage for one reason or another (harvesting wood, woodpeckers etc.) 

Smrekomaz is filled into 40 ml returnable glass jars. 

Spruce balm is applied to the skin in a thin layer, if necessary, continue with thicker layers (burns, blisters, bedsores, wounds). If itching occurs, stop using balm (possibility of allergic reactions).
