Summertime! And the living is...easy? Here in the downunderlands, summer can indeed be golden and easy, but only with the right tools on board for tempering the other truths of the season: Christmas indulgences, biting insects, and a harsh sun.

Summer essentials for your toolkit need to be potent and effective. Targeted herbal preparations are just the ticket, and entirely natural too.

Kiwiherb Stomach Calm combines the power of New Zealand native Kawakawa with the qualities of Ginger root, both traditionally used for the relief of digestive discomfort. For anyone who gets cramping, bloating, or digestive pain this remedy can provide support on an ongoing basis. For those who simply get a “gutsache” from overindulging during the party season, this makes a wonderful stocking-filler! You can drink it neat, add it to boiling water to have it as you would tea, or it’s refreshingly cold as a fizzy mocktail with soda.

Kiwiherb Stomach Calm is perfect for a non-alcoholic summer refresher that will ease your guests’ tummies too (see our website for ideas). Not forgetting that this can be a busy time of year for the youngest amongst us, for babies and children with upset tummies, Kiwiherb Kid’s Calm is soothing for both the stomach and the nerves. This is ideally suited to little ones with changes in routine and diet over the summer months, and for easing the frazzle of travelling for summer holidays.

Kiwiherb Calendula Ointment is a staple item for the summer first aid kit for all the family. Our Calendula flowers are certified organically grown in New Zealand and produce a tell-tale golden yellow ointment that may assist in healing and skin repair, no-matter what the matter is!

Kiwiherb Skin Restore Cream helps with the effects of sun-induced oxidative damage. It supports skin regeneration … those pesky fine lines, wrinkles, redness and age spots that creep in as the years go by! Absolutely paraben and petrochemical free, key ingredients include New Zealand-grown Green Tea, Grapeseed extract, Kiwifruit extract and the wonderful New Zealand native herb Hoheria (Lacebark).

Get ready for summer with Kiwiherb!
