Tui Balms

Tui is one of our brands that hail from the beautiful Golden Bay in New Zealand’s South Island, and is based at the Tui Community, which has practiced and embodied natural alternatives for over 20 years.

Tui produces a range of balms that are made purely from ingredients that occur naturally in nature. Their popular balms include warming ingredients such as ginger, arnica and camphor, while their baby balms use the regenerative properties of coconut oil and the cooling effects of aloe vera.

Bee Balm is one of our most popular healing balms. It is a great all-natural salve that can be used as a soothing cream for scratches or grazes, moisturising cracked heels or skin, applied to ease sunburn as well as many other uses!

Brilliant! Review by
  • star

Living here in the UK we had never heard of Tui Bug Balm until Dec 2016 when we met a lovely NZ couple while my hubby and I were travelling in South Africa.
They used this Tui Bug Balm and had no bites from mosi's etc... and I used my usual product and was fine UNTIL Victoria Falls town in Zimbabwe, and then I was bitten badly on my ankles despite having applied my usual product.
Tanya gave me some of this Tui Bug Balm that she could spare and I began using that...within a couple of days the bites had disappeared, I used the balm daily and I wasn't bitten again as we travelled through Zimbabwe back to Johannesburg.
I loved the Citronella scent of the balm, I didn't find it greasy and it certainly does the job!! I have ordered a few here in the UK I work outside and although we get a lot of rain here ..I am taking no chances in case any UK flying insects fancy biting me in future!
Fantastic delivery service too, parcel arrived in less than 7 days! Big THANK YOU !!

Worked awesome on an 8 day trip round Stewart Island, little bit goes a long way. This bug balm will go everywhere now, only wish it didn't leave an oily residue on clothes/raincoats etc. Smelt good enough to eat as well.

Fantastic non toxic insect repellant Review by
  • star

With so many toxic and strong scented repellents on the market, it was a relief to stumble across this one. Not only is this brand incredible - it really works! It does have a strong smell, but not chemical based - more citrussy(!?) which is absolutely fine. It feels wonderful to support a NZ made brand as well.

I really like this insect repellant. It is very effective in keeping bugs away and as a natural product I am very happy to use it on my children.

Awesome! My 4yo is a huge attraction for mozzies, and every bite swells up hugely. I just dab 3 dots of the Bug Balm on his face, and smear a thin line on his arms/legs when we are around mozzies, and they have not come NEAR him all summer. Fantastic stuff. You need very little of the product as it is quite strong smelling. Will definitely repurchase.

Very pleasant to use - soothing on irritated bites for those in our party who didn't use repellent (!), effective repellent for those of us who were prepared :)

Yes, it works but has a very strong lemony smell. Several washings of hands still didn't get rid of it! Good thing is you don't need to use much (certainly doesn't need to be applied as much as directions say), bad thing is that it doesn't absorb so well so smell/wax will rub off onto your furnishings, clothes if you're not careful.

We've enjoyed the Tui Bug Balm since our visit to NZ a few years ago, purchased a 50 gm jar there. My brother and I resently hiked Mt. St. Helens volcano blast zone and found your bug balm very effective, safer and better smelling than "Deet" or "6-12" brands we've tried against misquitoes, biting flies and "no-see-ums." We couldn't have been more comfortable on hot dusty treks over three day period. Sincerely,Jack (Portland, Oregon)
