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.
Made with: Maceration of Titoki leaves (Alectryon excelsus) in Olive oil, Beeswax, Essential Oils of Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) and Lemon Gum (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.
