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 after you have been bitten, as subsequent swelling, itching and infection following bites is the main problem. The cream helps to soothe, reduce the itch, disinfect and help 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.

Contains: Purified water, chamomile and calendula extracts and infused oils, evening primrose, jojoba, rosehip, wheatgerm and carrot oils, emulsifying wax NF, witch hazel, beeswax, hydroxypropyl starch phosphate, chickweed & plantain extracts, vegetable glycerine, Vitamin E, pure essential oils of lavender, tickbush (kunzea ambigua), niaouli, German chamomile, frankincense & rosalina (Melaleuca ericifolia), fragrance (natural plant derived preservative), potassium sorbate.

This product works 100% very happy with it, smell and texture.

It works!

My Dad first introduced me to midgie magic. It relieves the awful itch and smells great. You can feel it beginning to work as soon as you spread it on.


We have been using Midgie Magic for years. It is the best product for insect bites hands down. And it helps enormously with Tick bites!
Thank you Hidden Valley :-)

Midgie Magic...does it work?

Midgie Magic a Hidden Valley product...does it work?

After enjoying three nights of camping at Willie Creek in a swag on the rocks (with sighted crocs lurking under the mangroves) I realised that I must a culinary delicacy for those darned midgie and mosquitos. I stopped counting at 150 bites, needless to say, extremely itchy beyond belief.

I tried everything to soothe them and to stop the itch, all the usual products (Vinegar, Isopropyl alcohol, my usual favourite and fantastic if you get them straight away), but nothing worked.

Until...I spoke to a local at Total Work Wear and she suggested Midgie Magic, because it is the ONLY thing she has found that works.

And it does...and I am very, very thankful about that. A natural product made in Broome that works wonders. Thank you Hidden Valley for your wonderful and aptly name product!

Thank you so much Lawrence for your really lovely review! We are so glad it has helped you, and also grateful to our existing customers (Totally Work Wear!) for spreading the word. We have always hated seeing the red itchy blotches on tourists' skins & vowed many years ago to help as best we could with our herbal ingredients. Thankfully they do work!

Midgie is really magic

Honestly, Midgie Magic is just the best. Bites stop itching immediately and disappear overnight. I live on Qld and had bought some years ago when visiting Broome. I was totally thrilled to still be able to order it on the internet. Love these products.

Thank you so much for your glowing review Gail - we are so glad you've found relief from those pesky critters!
