Summer Essentials


  • 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
  • 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
  • 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!!!
    – Alex Lazzaro
  • My wife and I have been using this product for years and they are amazing and work fantastic!!! We have the all the children's stuff including the echinature, chest syrup, throats syrup and the De-stuff!!! Absolutely amazing products We love them
    – Craig Hume
  • Brought a bottle of children's chest syrup and it works like magic no more coughing during the night. Also my son loves the taste
    – Philippa Quigley
  • 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!
    – Melissa White
  • 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.
    – Bridgette Robinson
  • 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

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: End-of-Year stress, 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.

StressArrest is the perfect companion for the stresses that can accumulate at the end of a busy year. Work parties, school break-ups, Christmas shopping, planning holidays; despite our best intentions sometimes we can feel overwhelmed with the end-of-year chaos. StressArrest combines three researched herbal extracts designed to provide relief when you’re feeling the pressure. Liquid Kava root extract is like gold for the anxious or stressed person, easing the tension. Passionflower helps with stress and worry while calming the nerves, and Withania helps our ability to cope under pressure. You really have to try it to believe it- herbs are incredibly powerful when they’re grown well, made well, and taken in the right dosages. This is your ticket to a peaceful summer season!

Herbal Insect Repellent is a wonderful-smelling, highly effective insect deterrent to pack in your summer first aid kit. Essential for campers, trampers and holiday-makers, this is a repellent that really does work for all kinds of biting insects. With sound research to back it up, the combination of Lemongrass and Fennel essential oils with Chaste Tree extract is a natural option for the whole family.

Kiwiherb Skin Restore Cream helps protect against 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).
