First of all, we eat more parsley than your average bear family. We live on a 5-acre organic property in Kerikeri, New Zealand and grow heaps of yummy food. (The kids agree, except for the kale. They draw the line at kale.)
Hi, we’re John, Becky, Helena and Isaac. In 1999 (pre-kids) we created a natural bug repellent called Goodbye Sandfly, which very slowly grew, and since 2009 has been the NZ’s #1 selling natural repellent. Through that time, Becky has been making remedies and blends, first for her massage therapy clinic, then just for the family.
In October 2013, we added sister brands Goodbye Nits and Goodbye Ouch.
We have been using various versions of Goodbye Ouch for about as long as we’ve been married. This is not because we’re married, mind you! It’s also when Becky finished her massage therapy and products training.
We use it in our family on a huge range of pains, aches, and injuries, as well as cough and cold ailments (see 80 Uses for our very extensive list!). We’ve even used Goodbye Ouch on our goat (he got a leg gash from being kicked by our cow) and one of our hens (who broke her leg). Even more ridiculous, we’ve used it to stop a squeaky hinge, lubricate a barrel pump and polish a scratch on our wood table. Among other things!
Goodbye Ouch is a product that we’ve developed with love and care, right in our own kitchen. Our children are often our most important product critics. They know how to distinguish between the ingredients, consistency and texture and help us make a great product!
We’re a very active family – sailing, tramping, working outdoors so we needed a product that was light, easy to carry and had maximum effectiveness. We hope you enjoy the product as we much as we have enjoyed making it for you.
Becky, John, Helena and Isaac
