Simply put, Mangala is the best moisturising cream I have ever used. My dry, sensitive skin is hydrated and soft and feels completely rejuvenated. Many thanks.
Rione Kilcullen from Co. Mayo


I know this cream is pure natural goodness for my skin. When applied, it is easily absorbed and leaves my skin feeling moisturised, soft, supple and protected. As a woman of 46 I have noticed over the past few years that skin has become drier and duller. I have tried many skincare products to enhance the feel and appearance of my skin and have found it difficult to find a good moisturiser that works well for me. This works perfectly. Knowing that all the ingredients are natural and have been carefully selected and blended is a huge bonus and strengthens my belief that my skin is getting the nourishment and goodness that it need”.
Anne Marie (from Boyle, Co. Roscommon)


I will never be able to speak highly enough about this product- a cream, at last, that satisfies and refreshes my skin. I have tried so many other products but found none as effective for the dryness and sensitivity of my skin. Mangala Face Cream has the “X factor”, leaving my skin feeling naturally hydrated and alive. The combination of calendula balm and cream has, I found, effectively cleared nasty spots faster.”

This is such an amazing natural product! Grown locally in Boyle by the inspirational Karen Stewart. We have used it daily for the last ten months on our little boys skin to prevent nappy rash and it works a treat… Great for skin irritations and burns too. We would highly recommend it.

I have been using Mangala Face Cream for a number of years. It is so refreshing and gives my skin a healthy glow. I am also using Calendula Balm. Its great for any skin ailment.

We have been using Calendula balm for 3-4 years now, we use it on all skin ailments, cuts and scratches, skin rashes, bruises, dry skin, face moisturiser, spots, nappy rashes, literally everything!! We recommend it to everyone and everyone who has tried it loves it! I recently tried the oil and lip balm, gorgeous products! We literally always have at least 3 jars of calendula balm in the house!

I love using Karen’s Karuna Essentials products. They feel divine on my skin. Surprising immediate difference in skin moisture/softness and shine when using the Mangala face cream and hot clothe cleanser! And the smells of all the creams are so luxurious; I feel pampered, loved and like I’ve been to a health spa! And you only need to use very small amounts. The Calendula cream is amazing I have used it on burns and dry skin patch with over night results! If I use it before going out in the sun I am less likely to burn.

Great product… Personal touch. Organic, truthful to nature and the client and best of all, these products work. Karuna Essentials is a wonderful addition to my home.
