Kiwiherb organic remedies for winter ills - giveaway

With the forever changing weather – snow, rain, wind and (thank heavens) sun, it’s no wonder we feel under the weather at times, coughing and spluttering our way through to spring. Never fear, 40s Chic has come to the rescue with our latest giveaway, designed to get you through this tough spell in one of the most natural ways possible.
Thanks to the guys at Kiwiherbs we have a few herbal lovelies to help soothe your cough, boost your immune system and banish dry lips (the chapped look just doesn’t work).

First up from our terrific trio is Marshmallow & Mullein Syrup. This herbal blend works for both dry and wet coughs, including the chest congestion and phlegm that often go with them, relieving inflammation and irritation in the respiratory tract.
Organic and 100 per cent natural, this remedy helps in the breakdown of catarrh, it also tackles the awful wheezing and tightness in your chest that often accompany a cough, as well as fighting infection.
The syrup, which also contains manuka honey, organic apple juice and natural flavourings, is suitable for children and adults, and can be taken diluted in water or straight from the spoon.

If your lips could do with a bit of TLC then pucker up and try this organic Calendula Ointment. The high strength formulation is gentle on the skin and hydrating, thanks to the beeswax and organic sunflower oil it contains. It is effective in kissing goodbye to chapped lips, and can also be used on cuts, grazes, eczema and blisters.
Calendula has long been a skin saviour in herbal circles, thanks to its potent healing ability – it improves blood flow to wounds and encourages the body’s natural healing processes. It is antiseptic, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory, and is gentle enough to use on children.

Antiviral Echinacea boosts your immune system and let’s face it, we could all do with a boost now and then. Take it to ward of colds and flu, or if you’re unlucky enough to be suffering   already, then try it to help fight infection and hopefully, have you feeling better in no time. Kiwiherb’s Organic Echinacea Root Extract could also be for you if you’re stressed or anxious, as these negative emotions can also lower your immune defences.

  1. I just launched a new party and gift ideas website called It’s got ideas for all sorts of special occasions. I’m trying to start the blog, the purpose of which is to get everyone to share their gift ideas, their party ideas and any cool sort of stories they have about special occasions like Birthdays or Halloween parties. I plan to feature the ideas on the website and expand the pages, which would be really cool. I’d appreciate if you guys would take a look at it and let me know what you thinks. Cheers!

    I just love that you are doing this competition and the review.

    Not a lot of people know that I am an Adv Hoistic & Sports Therapist and I have only the best things to say about curing all ills using organic and natural remedies - it's a lot less aggressive on your body and as a result actually has benefits for you.

    Happy to advise if I can help
