Midgie Magic (formerly Sandfly Salve) was designed many years ago to help newcomers to Broome cope with biting midges and other insects. This cream is to put on afteryou have been bitten, as subsequent swelling, itching and infection following midge bites is the main problem. The cream helps to soothe, reduce the itch, disinfect and heal up bites with natural anti-inflammatory ingredients. Works also on bee stings and even, so we are told, on Scottish midgies!
Make sure you download the pamphlet "Biting Midges in Broome" for more information to understand and cope with them. If this link doesn't work, please get in touch with us so we can send you one via email.
Apply frequently until bites have healed. Can be used in conjunction with Herbal Skin Calm, a cooling soothing gel for all itchy skin conditions
Please note that an unlucky few will have severe reactions to midge bites, requiring medical attention and anti-histamines.

500g mixed Hidden Valley soap offcuts, unchopped, ideal for making soap mitts (try our Soap Saver), or soap sachets, or even laundry soap in soft water areas. Some slices or pieces are big enough for guest soaps. Some people simply fill a bowl as pot pourri to scent a room. Others squish them together, or give them to the kids (less wasted in the water!).
These are the slices and pieces that are cut off the sides of our large blocks when they pass through our cutting machine. They have been cured (dried).
