Testimonials

  • Received a bottle of children's chest syrup to trial and what can I say it's magic in a bottle!! After a single dose they didn’t cough the whole night which meant a better sleep for everyone after two days they were so much better and they liked the taste which is great, can't wait to try more of your products
    – Daniella Bhagat
  • I'm not often inspired enough to go seek out a brand's Facebook page just to give them my positive feedback - in fact this is the first time ever. I just wanted to express how much I love the children's cough syrup, it's always worked wonders on my kids - it's now taken to the next level with the inclusion of the syringe which is long enough to reach the bottom of the bottle - hurray! It's always been the bane of my mum-life trying to reach the medicine when the bottles have run low with syringes that aren't long enough - thank you!

  • On Sunday we bought De-Stuff for our 3 year old daughter who has struggled with a cold all week. After 2 doses of it, along with the Chesty formula, she slept so well that night and woke up looking and sounding so much better. Now almost 3 days later her cold is all but gone. I wish I had have found out about it sooner.

  • I brought a bottle of De-stuff for my 11 month old daughter yesterday who has had a runny nose for the last 5 days, I've been wiping her nose constantly but after 2 doses of De-stuff I've only had to wipe her nose twice today. I wish I'd known about this sooner. I will be using this straight away in the future

  • I love Kiwiherb! Finding something that worked so well, and was safe for my daughter when she was at an age where she couldn't have all other medicines, it was such a great help! And now I use nothing else
    – Alyssa Francis-King
  • Absolutely love baby balm. My 6 week old had flakey, dry skin and nothing I had tried was helping until I tried baby balm. Her skin is so much better. I can't believe how fast it worked. Thank you Kiwiherb!!!

Chamomile

Botanical name: Matricaria recutita
Common name: German Chamomile, Scented Mayweed
Part used: Flower

Popular as a tea, Chamomile has been used as a medicinal plant for centuries, primarily for digestive complaints including colic, reflux, wind and gripe in infants and children, and as gentle relaxant. The essential oil is also a popular ingredient in skin care products and is one of the most commonly used oils in aromatherapy.

Apigenin, a constituent of Chamomile, has been shown in clinical studies to decrease anxiety and act as a mild sedative. This gentle, calming action makes it an ideal herb for restless and anxious children.

Apigenin and various components of the volatile oil of Chamomile, have also been shown to inhibit the formation of inflammatory chemicals in the body and to have antispasmodic activity.  These actions make it useful as a digestive tonic.  A study showed Chamomile, in combination with pectin (found in fruits & vegetables), to be effective in reducing the duration and discomfort of diarrhoea in children.
