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.
Presented in an attractive tin attached to an information card, this is a great product for yourself or to give as a gift.
To use: Apply a thin layer to skin as needed.
Product weight: 50 grams
Ingredients: Maceration of Titoki leaves (Alectryon excelsus) in Sunflower Oil, Beeswax, Essential Oils of Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) and Lemon Gum (Eucalyptus citriodora).
*Please note - Geoff and Jan have recently changed from using olive oil as a base in their balms to New Zealand grown sunflower oil. They've decided to use their remaining packaging rather than waste it (a move we whole-heartedly support!), so some packaging may still refer to olive oil, however all balms now contain sunflower.
Dee says: "I'm so pleased to be able to bring you some of Millstream Gardens' wonderful natural products. I've known Geoff and Jan for a few years now, since they invited us to keep some of our hives at Millstream, and they are absolutely the real deal. Their knowledge of plants and herbal remedies is incredible, and most of the plants used in their products are grown and harvested right in their own gardens. With 30 years of learning and experience under their belts, their skill and commitment shows in every tin."
