What people say

Life changing balm
After a long time on medication I tried Zoe's Kawakawa Balm and haven't looked back. My skin feels nourished and protected day to day. I have confidence again.


I got Zoe’s Sleep Balm for Eli (3). I've been able to replace Vicks Baby Balm with this much nicer and safer balm, plus he's falling asleep faster. Last night he slept 9 hours straight and for him that’s great. Thank you, I love that you are continuing to make lovely useful products


I have used Zoe's Bugs Away Kawakawa Spray for years and it's brilliant at keeping bugs away from me and my little girl. It also soothes the bites that we get, when we don't get this on in time. Highly recommend!


I adore Zoe’s Kawakawa Balm, if there's one thing I have to select to take in my bathroom bag it's this!


I used Zoe's Bugs Away Kawakawa Spray over the holidays and it is the first time that I have not been attacked by mosquitoes. Everyone else was covering up, swatting mosquitoes while I sat there hoping this new product I had purchased would work? Well it did work! The next day I had not received any bites so I used it with confidence the next night also (and again no bites). THANK YOU, not only does it have a lovely fragrance (which others commented on) but most of all it works! I highly recommend this product.

Does Zoe’s Kawakawa balm help with eczema?

Yes, Zoe’s Kawakawa balm has helped many people with relieving eczema symptoms. This is because kawakawa leaves contain two strong active ingredients - Myristicin and Elemicin which are anti-inflammatory markers reducing itching and pain.

What connection does Zoe’s Kawakawa hold to mātauranga Māori and the iwi of Manawatū?

In 2012, when Zoe began her science fair project, she connected with the local Rangitāne iwi of Manawatū to seek guideance. Zoe’s Kawakawa regularly seeks guidance and support around respecting and celebrating mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge) and rongoā Māori (Māori medicine) rather than appropriating knowledge. The mātauranga of kawakawa’s healing properties was discovered and developed by Māori, and guardianship of this mātauranga will always be theirs. The team at Zoe’s Kawakawa invest in rangatahi Māori (youth) at local schools to support and whakanui (celebrate) Te Ao Māori (the Māori world).

Can I use Zoe’s Kawakawa products on my baby?

Yes, it is safe to use Zoe’s Kawakawa balm (60ml) on your baby. It’s antimicrobial, reduces inflammation, helps with circulation, is soothing, and moisturizing for baby skin which is sensitive and dry. Essential oils should not be used on babies under three months old - therefore, Zoe’s Kawakawa lip-balms and aromatic balms should only be used on babies over three months old.

Can I use Zoe’s Kawakawa balm on my pets?
Yes, Zoe’s Kawakawa balm is great for animals, moistening skin, healing injuries, especially on itchy rashy paws and noses. Animals may try to lick the balm off, however it is not toxic to your pet. 

Is the packing recyclable?
Yes, all glass and aluminum are recyclable. Unfortunately the spray pump is not yet recyclable in Aotearoa, hopefully soon. 

Can I get a refill?
Yes, Zoe’s Kawakawa spray refills are currently available at Good House Keeping on Cuba Street in Wellington, and we are exploring refill options in other parts of Aotearoa too, for the balms and spray. Contact us if you would like to purchase a refill bottle.

Where do you get your ingredients from?

Kawakawa and Mānuka is grown and harvested in Te Papaioaea, Palmerston North. The other ingredients - beeswax, olive oil and essential oils are sourced locally where possible.
