Self Heal's Spider Bite Formula is based on the individual NZ native herbs that were traditionally used for Katipo spider bites. Combining these herbs increases their effectiveness.
This formula has been soothing for both katipo (lactodectrus) andWhite-tailed (Lampona) spiders.
Directions: For Adults: 1/2 Teaspoon (2.5ml) For children: 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon every 4 hours until relief.
Alternatively an external compress may be made by soaking a cotton ball or piece of clean cloth in the formula and applying to the affected area. Dilute 50:50 for children as this may sting on first contact with the bite. To further reduce the sting the herbs may be heated for a minute, left to cool then applied.
Self Heal's spider bite formula has been safely used for over 12 years.
Sold in 100ml, 50ml and 25ml sizes. We recommend 25ml as a great addition to your first aid kit.
