Herbal remedies for little oinkers

Our sense of smell plays an important role in our memory. There are some scents that take me straight back to my childhood; when I was little my mother was a florist and whenever I had a day off school ill, it would be spent lying on a banana lounge in the back of the florist shop, the air filled with the scent of carnations (it was the 1970s!).

I also recall the comforting smell of the vapour rub used when we had colds and the odd but strangely pleasant scent of the ‘magic cream’ used on bruises. Relive some of those scented memories with herbal remedies made for children by Little Oinkers.

Little Oinkers is a range of natural, certified organic skincare products for children that combine traditional herbal remedies with essential oils in easy to use balms. The range includes: an Arnica balm for bumps and bruises with a modern cranberry twist; a soothing olive leaf, oat and chamomile balm for scratches; and a very Australian chest rub for relief during colds made from aromatic Lemon Myrtle, Peppermint, Blue Mallee Eucalyptus and more.

Little Oinkers is available at the Kido Store. Each balm is $14.95.
