SOUTH NEW Brighton is about

to be revitalised.

Nearly eight years since the

February 22, 2011, earthquake

wrecked shops on the corner of

Estuary Rd and Bridge St, new

commercial and entertainment

activities may only be weeks away.

The empty plot of land on the

corner is set to be filled with a

community common ground.

Live music and food from food

vendors will be on offer and it is

hoped that it will be up and running

before Christmas.

The common ground will be

managed by the Bridge South

Brighton Trust, the food will be

provided by the Food Collective

and Sustain South Brighton will

organise the events.

Sustain South Brighton community

activator Samantha Fay

said the common ground was

exactly what the community

needed.

“To have that common ground,

that gathering space where people

can come together and hang out

and share knowledge and learn

from each other, that’s going to be

amazing to have,” she said.

THAT’S GOOD news on page 1 today

about plans for the corner of Estuary Rd

and Bridge St in South New Brighton.

Three community groups have come together

with a plan to make use of the land

which was a casualty of the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

There isn’t much south of New Brighton these days, so the

plan for live music, food stalls and vendors is a good one.

Before the 2011 quake, the area was a busy one.

What the groups involved, and the trust overseeing the

project, need to do though is promote the heck out of it.

Talking is a good start.

Beware of leopard seals (page 7). They are unpredictable.

DREDGING WORK will begin

on the lower Heathcote River to

help reduce flood risk.

The dredging is part of the

city council’s land drainage

recovery programme and will

be carried out by contractor City

Care between Opawa Rd and the

Woolston Cut (an engineered

channel).

The work

below Opawa

Rd will remove

more than

20,000 cu m of

sediment that

has built up

since regular

dredging of the

river stopped

in the mid-1980s.

The river will be closed to recreational

vessels such as kayaks

and canoes, between Opawa Rd

and Radley Park, while dredging

is under way.

City council land drainage

manager Keith Davison said it

will restore capacity lost after

the earthquakes and through

ongoing silt deposits in the lower

Heathcote River channel.

“By restoring the capacity of

the river channel, the risk of

properties and streets flooding

during heavy rainfall will be

reduced, benefiting local residents

and those who live further

upstream,” he said.

“There will be some disruption

while this project is carried out

but the contractor will minimise

that as much as possible and we

think the benefits to residents in

the long-term will be valuable.”

Mr Davison said the dredging

will also remove contaminated

sediment which entered the river

from commercial and street

storm water run-off to improve

the habitat in the river.

“This will complement benefits

from the new storm water filter

being built nearby on Richardson

Tce.”

“We’ll be planting native trees

and plants during the landscaping

phase following the dredging work

which will enhance the ecological

and landscape values of the area.”

The project will be carried out

in two stages.

Stage one, between Radley

St and the Woolston Cut, will

begin with tree removals from

riverbanks this week before

dredging with an excavator and

barge starts at Connal Reserve in

mid-October.

Work on this reach below Radley

St will continue until June,

including tidying up the site and

landscaping from April.

Heathcote River dredging to reduce flooding risk

Keith Davison

PROGRESS:

The city council

is set to begin

dredging on

the Heathcote

River.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Walkways on both sides of

the river will be closed during

some periods of the work, with

safety fencing and signage in

place. Access will remain open

through Radley Park and to

Laura Kent Reserve through

Laura Kent Pl.

Stage two, between Opawa

Rd and Radley St, will also

start mid-October with dredging

by an excavator based on the

Clarendon Tce side of the river.

Dredging on the stage two

reach will be split into two phases

to minimise the impact on

whitebait during their spawning

season of March to June.

It is expected to be complete by

September.

There will be some parking

restrictions and traffic disruption,

including single-laning, on

Clarendon Tce while trucks are

being loaded.

The city council has asked residents

to keep children and pets at

a safe distance from the worksite

and construction machinery

while the project is under way.

Investigation and design work

for the Stage three reach from

Opawa Rd to Hansen Park is

under way and dredging of this

section is expected to happen late

next year through to early 2020.

Riccarton residents say

no to more booze

• By Anan Zaki

RICCARTON RESIDENTS are

trying to sink a pool hall’s bid to

get a liquor licence.

The Common Room on Riccarton

Rd has applied to sell alcohol

at the premises from 8-2am daily.

Residents nearby believe this

could cause a return to anti-social

behaviour that marred the Riccarton

bus lounges.

The pool hall is located opposite

the eastbound Riccarton Rd

bus lounge and about 50m from

the westbound bus lounge.

The Common Room is owned

by fast-food restaurant Arcadia

owner Matthew Glanville.

It was previously known as

More Pool.

Mr Glanville could not be

reached for comment.

Riccarton Bush-Kilmarnock

Residents’ Association chairman

Tony Simons said the residents

are against the proposed hours.

The residents submitted their

objection to the city council’s

district licencing committee.

“The bus lounges and Division

St are previously known trouble

spots and the flow on effect of

delinquent behaviour has been

felt by the surrounding businesses

and residential areas,” the

submission stated.

“A bar/tavern will potentially

inflame those problems again.”

Neighbours say there are three

other bars in the area. A new liquor

provider will add to drunken

behaviour.

Riccarton Ward community

board member and Rata St

resident Helen Broughton is also

against the licence.

“I’m concerned from a planning

perspective that it could be

turned into a bar completely,” Ms

Broughton said.

“In our city plan, night life is

meant to be for the central city

and Riccarton is more for community

activities,” she said.

Riccarton Community Constable

Aaron Thorn did not believe

the new license will increase

drunken behaviour.

“You’ve got liquor agencies

around that immediate areas, so

I don’t know if one more is really

going to terribly make a much of

difference,” Constable Thorn said.

The behaviour at the bus lounges

has also improved. Should

drunken behaviour increase,

police will intervene, Constable

Thorn said.

Ms Broughton expects a

licencing committee decision in

the next two to three weeks.

Library exhibit recalls worst pandemic

• By Matt Salmons

A NEW exhibition at Lyttelton

Library recalls an era when the

flu killed half as many New

Zealanders as World War 1.

Returning soldiers brought

with them an influenza strain

which killed more than 9000

over about six weeks in 1918.

In commemoration, Lyttelton

Library is hosting a joint

exhibition with Lyttelton

Museum until October 27.

Lyttelton Library team leader

Annette Williams said the When

Death Jumped Ship exhibit

included a replica medicine

depot, complete with inhalation

apparatus, as well as information

boards and medicine bottles

from the time.

“They had medicine depots

set up all around the city, ours is

the combination of a couple of

them,” she said.

As well as medicine, people

could get “alcoholic stimulants”

from the depots, Ms Williams

said.

“On prescription, you could

get a bottle of whiskey, brandy or

stout.”

Inhalation apparatus and

larger chambers, which

produced a weak zinc-sulphate

spray for people to breathe in,

were also a common sight. Ms

Williams said there was one

in Lyttelton to service those

disembarking from ferries and

ships.

In Christchurch, 14 trams were

used as inhalation centres, with

the air-breaking system used

to run the sprayers. The trams

were taken to outlying suburbs

so people could climb aboard to

walk through the steam cloud.

Ms Williams said the image

of people lining up for the spray,

sometimes in queues of up to

700, was like something from a

science-fiction novel.

“I think it’s a wee bit scary that

they did that.”

Ms Williams said it was

an important event in New

Zealand’s history and

something people could learn

from.

“This was an event which

impacted the home front in a

very different way.”

Canterbury University

Emeritus Professor Geoffrey Rice

said the pandemic remained the

world’s worst since the Black

Death and changed the outcome

of World War 1.

Prof Rice will host a public

lecture tomorrow at Lyttelton

Library on how lessons learned

in 1918 can help prepare for

future outbreaks.

He said he believed the risk

of another major pandemic

was greater due to the ease of

international travel.

•Public talk tomorrow,

7pm-8pm, Lyttelton Library.

Emeritus Professor Geoffrey

Rice will look at the question:

could it happen again? Free

• By Sophie Cornish

AS NEW Zealanders face the

end of the plastic bag era, one

woman is helping the cause with

an ancient Maori tradition.

Lana Hart is the

founder of Kai Baskets,

an initiative to help

shoppers reduce their

plastic consumption –

and it’s proving popular.

The company’s

Facebook page has

reached 250,000 people

in 10 days.

The baskets, made

entirely of flax, are designed to

hang on the side of trolleys and

are used to hold fresh produce.

Kai Baskets began its first

pilot programme at the end

last month at Raeward Fresh

Lana Hart

Tower Junction. Like trolleys,

the baskets are free to use for

customers.

The project came about

through Ms Hart’s own

frustration when food shopping

for her family of five.

“I would end up walking

home with a bunch of

plastic bags that I didn’t

want . . . I always just

wanted them to provide

something to cart the

produce from the produce

section to the checkout.”

she said.

Ms Hart said it “made

sense” to use a plant material

which is prevalent in New

Zealand and has already been

traditionally woven into Maori

kete – flax baskets.

A small team of about 30,

many of whom are volunteers,

worked on creating the baskets,

which are made from the

same design as wahakura baby

baskets, which are made for

newborns to help reduce cot

death.

The pilot is being funded by

the Sustainable Initiatives Fund

Trust.

To keep them clean, the

flax baskets are sanitised at the

time as the trolleys and other

baskets.

One basket can take about

45min to weave.

However a lot of preparation

work happens before this to

prepare the flax for weaving.

This includes stripping and

measuring the flax, boiling it to

get rid of germs and then airdrying

it.

Warning over leopard seals

• By Matt Salmons

A MARINE biologist is warning

people to be wary around

leopard seals on Canterbury

beaches.

It comes after a leopard seal

came on to Sumner Beach last

week.

The seal was photographed

Sumner woman Hanna

Zhionberg who had been heading

out to paddleboard on Tuesday

night.

Marine mammal biologist

Krista Hupman had been researching

leopard seal sightings

in New Zealand for about three

years.

She said in spite of most

people’s impressions, visiting

leopard seals were “not unusual

at all,” with up to 50 seals visiting

New Zealand each year.

Dr Hupman said it was difficult

to say why the creature

was here.

“It seems each leopard seal has

their own agenda. It’s hard to say

what each one is up to.”

The Department of Conservation

website recommended staying

at least 20m away from any

leopard seal and keeping dogs

on a leash.

Dr Hupman said the animals

could inflict serious injury, but

would not normally attack people

as they were usually on the

best to rest.

“They’re not this aggressive

animal that people have in

their minds,” Dr Hupman said.

Ms Zhionberg said she had

not heard of a leopard seal visiting

the area in the two years she

had lived in Sumner.

“I was honestly, really excited.

Antarctica for me is at the

top of my bucket list. Getting

something from Antarctica to

come here is really awesome.”

Keeping our drinking water safe

In this week’s

Soapbox, city

councillor

Spreydon

Ward Phil

Clearwater

writes about

keeping our

drinking water safe

CHRISTCHURCH HAS always

had pride in our pristine water

coming from the aquifers

beneath our city.

Unlike all other New Zealand

cities we have never had to

chlorinate our water on a

long term basis to ensure it

is safe. Our water has always

been regularly tested with few

transgressions.

However, after the Havelock

North inquiry, the Drinking

Water Standards were applied

at a stricter level and the

government’s Water Assessor

required city council to

chlorinate our water. Our city

council had no option other than

to chlorinate the water.

However, an advantage of city

council making the decision

was that it retains the decisionmaking

authority as to how we

remove the chlorine from our

water within a 12-month time

frame.

To achieve this goal, city

council staff have worked hard

to develop several protective

‘barriers’ to ensure our water is

absolutely safe. Chlorine is only

one of these ‘barriers.’ From the

first stage of work on alternative

options, we have 11 pumps from

wells that are above-ground

and where chlorine is not

required for nearly 25 per cent of

Christchurch.

Also we have been able

to reduce the chlorine dose

at another 15 wells. In the

second stage there are another

49 wells covering 50 per

cent of Christchurch where

we will either remediate the

below-ground wellheads

(which are more susceptible to

contamination) or we will use

ultraviolet treatment at pump

stations.

Last week council approved a

$2.5 million ultraviolet treatment

system near south Colombo St at

one of our largest pump stations.

Christchurch’s water has

always been safe compared to

the Havelock North water well

system but this has not been

the case with some rural water

supplies in the Canterbury

region which have been relatively

unsafe.

To resolve this wider problem

Government has a proposal

to consider some models for

regional drinking water schemes,

including the possibility of a

regional water authority.

However, Christchurch should

not be responsible for upgrading

other city councils’ water

supplies.

Also, personally, I am

determined that Christchurch

residents should not have to

pay any more than we are

currently paying to fix our water

infrastructure. I’m convinced

that Christchurch does not need

a water authority like Auckland

but we need to consider

alternative models to ensure

the continuation of safe, secure

water.

Our city council has done a

huge amount of work to develop

a range of treatment options

for safe drinking water and

to achieve the goal of having

chlorine out of our water.

However. I believe we also

need to ensure that Christchurch

city retains local control of our

drinking water.

Road barriers broken by 4WD vehicle

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LATE NIGHT vandalism and

rubbish is continuing to concern

residents in Dallington living on

the edge of the red zone.

A sport utility vehicle drove at

high speed through barriers on

both ends of Dallington Tce nine

days ago.

Land Information New

Zealand’s security team

responded but were unable to

locate the vehicle.

Dallington resident Pat

Boland said the car was a large

dark coloured four-wheel-drive

with bull bars. He was about

100m away but could not get the

vehicle’s registration.

“What he did was very

dangerous, he drove through at

high speed,” he said.

The barriers were repaired on

Wednesday.

Mr Boland said it is going

to continue to be a common

problem in the red zone area

in Dallington due to people no

longer living there.

Rubbish dumping, burnouts

and doing donuts on the grass

are common in the red zone

area of Dallington, Mr Boland

said.

He said a lot of residents live

on back sections which don’t

face into the street anymore.

The SHIFT programme

SHIFT is an innovative industry-driven programme for those who are seeking a new career path who may not have a

tech background. Open to degree holders in any discipline, SHIFT learners have come from diverse backgrounds such

as medicine, philosophy, sociology, commerce, geography, marketing, engineering and humanities. Available in both

Christchurch and Dunedin, this one-year programme offers relevant and current content and skills to ensure you are

well equipped to work within the tech area, where the skills you have learnt in previous work and study are highly valued.

Tech jobs exist in every industry,

from aviation to zoology.

Combine ANY DEGREE

with the innovative SHIFT

programme and kickstart your

new career today.

SHIFT uses immersive studio-based learning and real-world industry experience to produce graduates with

a solid base of core computing skills, as well as communication and employability skills required in today’s

collaborative workplaces. SHIFT includes opportunities to meet and work with local tech industry employers;

industry visits, group projects designed and

mentored by industry, and a 200-hour industry

placement, where you work within the organisation

on a project to add value to your host, and to

showcase your capabilities.

Opportunities

With tech roles existing in nearly every area from

aviation to zoology, career possibilities are extensive.

Through the SHIFT programme, learners can focus

on software design and development, or allied

roles, such as business analyst, data scientist, web

designer, project manager, user experience designer,

technical writer, sales and client support . . . and the

list goes on.

SIGNAL’s SHIFT programme transitions graduates

from any discipline into tech. Many new and mature

graduates are considering tech as a viable and lucrative

career option, and this is increasing as the range

of roles within tech becomes more widely known.

Diversity of background and experiences is

welcomed in the tech sector. It is strongly recognised that it takes many viewpoints to best design products that meet customer

requirements, and tech firms are actively recruiting to address gender and ethnic imbalances across their employees.

The next SHIFT intake commences Feb 2019 and partial scholarships are available.

Halswell’s history on show

•From page 1

Mr Ridder lived in Halswell for

81 years, until he passed away in

2002, aged 85.

“I got to know Doug very well

and he had a wonderful collection

of history of the Halswell Quarry,

and the early settlers of Halswell,”

Mr Moore said.

“When he retired and went

up to Napier to live, he gave me

all his boxes of photographs and

handwritten notes that he had,”

he said.

A lot of the history work

focused on the Halswell Quarry,

which opened in the 1860s and

closed in 1990.

Mr Ridder’s research showed

that much of the broken metal in

the quarry’s early years was used

to form roads replacing tracks that

were prone to winter flooding.

One of the tracks, that ran from

the south to the then new city of

Christchurch, was named Lincoln

Rd, now known as Halswell Rd.

The photographs will be

displayed at the Halswell Quarry

Information Centre on Saturday

and Sunday from 9am to 5pm.

Charity rally that follows road rules

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Anan Zaki

MOTORISTS WILL have

a chance to show off their

driving skills for a rally on

Sunday.

It is organised by Countdown

Church Corner, to raise money

for Christchurch Hospital’s

children’s ward.

The rally is the brainchild of

the store’s produce manager

Murray Young, who came up

with a concept of a car rally that

follows road rules.

Mr Young said the rally has

been running for seven years.

“We had to come up with ideas

for fundraising and I’ve always

had an interest for cars.

“So it was natural for me to

suggest a car rally or car trial,”

Mr Young said.

The rally begins at The Princess

Margaret Hospital car park and

participants are given a series of

questions.

The answers give drivers a clue

as to what route the drivers have

to follow.

“We take note of the time when

the driver leaves, their mileage

when they start off and the mileage

when they finish,” Mr Young

said.

“Who answers the questions

READY: Countdown Church

Corner produce manager

Murray Young with his 1975

Rover 3500.

correctly, who has the correct

mileage at the end and who

finishes within the required time,

gets a prize” he said.

Mr Young stressed that it was

not a race, instead it was about

finding the right route.

Last year, the rally attracted

20 cars and raised $500 for

Christchurch Hospital’s children’s

ward.

Each car can have co-drivers

or passengers helping the drivers

answer the questions and find the

correct route.

A barbecue will be held after

rally.

•Entry costs $20 per car,

and people who want to join

should meet at the Princess

Margaret Hospital car park at

1pm on Sunday.

SUCCESS: Cathedral

Grammar has won the

National Junior Theatre

RoboCup Championship.

The boys, Rian, Sam,

Cameron and Conor, who

range from year 4 to year 8

recently competed in the

championships in Dunedin.

The win was a first for

the school’s innovative

and successful Robotics

Club, which encompasses

engineering and IT skills,

and extends across the

Anxiety and breathing

– are they related?

When good breathing goes bad

Have you experienced any of these

breathing difficulty symptoms?

• Disturbed sleep

• Erratic heartbeats*

• Feeling anxious and uptight

• Upset gut/nausea

• Chest pains*

• Shattered confidence

• Tired all the time

• Achy muscles and joints

• Dizzy spells* or feeling spaced out

• Irritability or hypervigilance

• Frequent yawning and sighing

• Breathing discomfort*

• Pins and needles

• Feelings of ‘air hunger’

*Check with your doctor if you experience

these symptoms.

These questions are asked on

the website www.BradCliff.com.

BradCliff was started by North Island

physiotherapists Dinah Bradley and

Tania Cliffton Smith, who specialise in

hyperventilation and anxiety treatment.

Their website notes one in 10 people

experience some form of breathing pattern

disorder or chronic over breathing at some

time in their lives, resulting in a range

of disturbing or frightening symptoms

puzzling to you and your doctor.

You feel unwell because of overbreathing,

and overbreathing makes you feel unwell.

A vicious cycle is established, which is a

major stress all by itself. This is experienced

currently by many Cantabrians, says Ietje

van Stolk of Physical Sense Gym & Physio.

As she explains, it is normal to breathe fast

and in the upper chest when we are in danger

and fight or flight is needed. We know all

about that here, due to the earthquakes.

Normally, once the danger is gone, our

breathing should restore itself within a

couple of days. We would then be using the

diaphragm for our normal nonstressed

breathing. We have been having a hard

time restoring our breathing pattern

here in Canterbury because every time

our body tried to achieve that, the next

aftershock came rolling in. Even though the

aftershocks have significantly diminished,

some people’s fight or flight mode

breathing has become chronic, or habitual,

Ietje says. And, as she points out, using the

wrong muscles for breathing means these

overworked muscles cause headaches, neck

pain and jaw pain.

With fast upper chest breathing, sighing

and yawning, the resulting disturbance

of our oxygen and carbon dioxide levels

can give us the feeling we are not able to

control our own body. One moment you

are feeling fine, next moment your chest

feels tight, you feel out of breath, your

heart beats erratically and you may even

experience dizziness and/or tingling.

Very scary if you do not understand what

is happening. No wonder this causes

anxiety. Not being the boss over our own

body makes us anxious, anxiety feeds the

faulty breathing pattern, and so it goes on.

The BradCliff physiotherapists have

established a national network of

practitioners that regularly train together

and can help you overcome this problem.

Physical Sense is part of that network.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Centuries old folk

remedy supports

good health!

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an array of powerful health

benefits. It is none other than the popular apple cider vinegar or ACV.

Since the time of Hippocrates – the

“Father of Medicine” – ACV has been

renowned for its curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS and

FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis

reports how he found that Vermonters

who regularly consumed ACV and Honey

had excellent health with many putting in

a vigorous day’s work on the farm even

when well into their eighties. He also noted

the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be

remarkable with many patients reporting

almost total relief after taking a course

of the mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that

the acid and potassium in cider vinegar

counteracted calcium deposits and helped

the body control calcium use. He also noted

that Vermonters who consumed ACV and

H around meal time had excellent blood

pressure and circulation. The reason he

found was that protein foods thickened the

blood and vinegar thinned it. As the blood

thickens it cannot pass as easily and quickly

through the blood vessels and capillaries.

This poor blood flow would reduce cellular

health by limiting nutrients to the cells as

well as waste elimination from the cells.

To prevent cell damage the body naturally

increases blood pressure but this puts

more stress on the blood vessels, organs

and heart. Having ACV and H with meals

will help prevent protein raising the blood

pressure. It also contributes to a feeling

of greater well-being because the thinner

blood circulates quickly and more easily

through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found

regular consumption of CV and H to be

an excellent health tonic with numerous

health attributes.

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all

the goodness of the apple in a form that is

readily accepted by the body. Good health

starts with good digestion and assimilation

of nutrients. ACV taken before food will

stimulate and promote healthy digestion

and assimilation of vital nutrients for good

health. A well-functioning digestive system

helps prevent disease by neutralising any

toxic substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not all ACV is

produced in the traditional way and results

are likely to prove disappointing with these

other vinegars.

Marshall’s Premium ACV and ACV

with 20% Manuka Honey is produced in

Canterbury from Organic whole apples in

the traditional way. It is double strength so

you can use less.

Dilo Oil – The Remarkable

Skin Rejuvenator

Until Rachel

Hunter’s popular

TV series “TOUR OF

BEAUTY” Dilo Oil was

relatively unknown being

one of the best-kept secrets of

the Pacific Islands. It may however

be the number one natural beauty oil

available as it possesses powerful natural

skin regeneration, anti-aging and healing

properties.

According to ethnobotanist Chris

Kilham, Dilo (pronounced dee-low)

Oil is a powerful skin regenerator as

it is one of the most effective agents

in promoting the regeneration and

formation of new tissue, thereby

accelerating wound healing and the

growth of healthy skin. Dilo Oil is

super-absorbing and nourishing

and can penetrate all three layers

of the skin, offering exceptional

cell hydration and regeneration.

As well as this, Dilo Oil has potent

anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial,

antifungal and antioxidant properties.

Traditionally, Dilo Oil is used to keep the

skin young and youthful and for just about

any skin complaint. Some of the conditions

for which it is considered helpful include

abrasions, cuts and cracks, acne and acne

scars, pimples, blemishes, stretch marks,

wrinkles, blisters, burns (including chemical

and radiation), diabetic sores, rashes, shaving

irritation, dry or scaly skin, eczema, psoriasis,

NATURAL HEALING & BEAUTY OIL

As seen on Rachel Hunter’s Tour of Beauty

Revered for centuries by Polynesians & Southeast Asians for its remarkable

skin anti-aging & healing properties, Dilo oil comes from the nut of the sacred

Dilo tree, “the tree of a thousand virtues”. Dilo oil is often called the beauty oil

as it can penetrate all three layers of the skin offering exceptional cell hydration

& regeneration. It has a unique ability to stimulate the growth of healthy skin

cells & this gives it powerful anti-aging & healing properties that can help

reduce lines, blemishes, scars & damage to the skin. It also possesses

anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal & antioxidant properties.

Dilo Oil Supports

• Anti-aging & skin regeneration, helps reduce lines, blemishes, scars &

stretch marks

• Skin hydration

• Skin repair & growth, helps feed the skin & stimulate healthy new cells

• Wound healing & skin protection from bacteria, viruses & fungus

• Most skin problems, rosacea, pimples, ulcers & sores, acne, psoriasis,

eczema, dermatitis, rashes, blisters, skin eruptions, warts, insect bites &

stings, athlete’s foot, burns, nappy rash etc.

• Joint & muscular pain

contains absolutely no additives.

Polynesians and Southeast Asians

have revered Dilo Oil for centuries

believing it to be a sacred gift of

nature and the Gods. Dilo Oil

contains a unique blend of fatty

acids that stimulate and supports

the skins natural healing process through

the growth of new healthy skin tissue. It is a

remarkable product we highly recommend to

everyone. A 50ml bottle is $19.90 and 100ml

and spacious room - Ideal as a rumpus,

family or a significantly large office for those

professionals who work from home.

This home ticks all of the boxes for warmth

and natural sunlight and is set in a sheltered

micro-climate and as we know, the lower

slopes of St Andrews Hill / Mt Pleasant Hill
