Natural Insect Repellant
A gentle salve to help keep mozzies, sandflies and other annoying insects away. It will also soothe itching from bites and stings. The backbone of this repellant is the Titoki tree, or the N.Z. Oak – an attractive tree, widespread in Hawke’s Bay. Traditionally used by the Maori, the Titoki leaves have no noticeable smell but repel insects and relieve itching. We’ve taken the liberty of enhancing it’s effectiveness by adding essential oils of N.Z. Manuka (Tea Tree) and Aussie Lemon Gum.
Contents: Maceration of Titoki leaves (Alectryon excelsus) in Olive oil (Olea europaea), Beeswax, Essential Oils of Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) and Eucalyptus citriodora.
Kiwi Slang Definition: ‘Bugger Off’ – Not as rude as it sounds, it means ‘go away, scram, beat it, vamoose.’ ‘Little Buggers’ – Nuisances, annoying critters, also used as a term of affection.
We've developed this new range of tins with a strong Kiwi theme, inspired by the old 'Retro' tourism posters. We've used our own original photographs and all the design work was done by our son, Giles. We've also selected iconic Kiwi sayings as the names for the tins, which are a bit of fun, and also reflect the product within.
They are a departure from our usual minimal labeling. We think they make ideal gifts - perfect for nostalgic Kiwi's overseas, travelers and visitors to NZ, and of course for your own use.
