So good for you and your skin
Goodbye Sandfly is New Zealand’s #1 selling natural bug repellent. It also works fantastically as a bite soother. It is blended to the standards of a high quality massage oil. How many repellents can you say that about?
We have just set up an on-line shop so that it is easily available outside of New Zealand. After years of your patient e-mails back and forth, we decided it was time to make it easier on you (and on us.)

Essential Oils & Sweet Almond Oil
It is made of essential oils of Eucalyptus, Lavender, Pine, Manuka, Tea Tree and Lemongrass in a base of expeller pressed Sweet Almond Oil. We use True Blue Organics Tea Tree oil, distilled in Karamea; the best! Wild manuka from the East Cape of New Zealand. The unique combination of oils makes an amazing oil with both bug repelling and skin healing properties.
Safe & Soothing
Goodbye Sandfly is safe for a wide range of people, including during pregnancy and for children.
We have blended the essential oils at a rate of 2.2%. As using essential oils at higher doses increases the risk of skin sensitization, we chose the lowest effective concentration so that it can be used everyday.
Sweet Almond oil has long been prized as a natural emollient, meaning it soothes and softens the skin. It is absorbed by the skin easily, allowing the skin to benefit from the nutrients in the oil, especially vitamin E.
Before First Use
A very few people may find one of the essential oils sensitizes the skin, or be unable to use the product due to a nut allergy. We suggest patch testing on the inside of the elbow before first use. If any irritation or rash develops, wash the product from the skin and discontinue use.
The essential oils do not make the skin photosensitive, ie more inclined to sunburn, and the almond oil adds a natural SPF of 2. Product can be used in conjunction with a sunscreen.
