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).
