Moisturising Outdoor Balm

Bug Balm is a deliciously moisturising balm with citronella, geranium and eucalyptus. Outdoor weather can be tough on skin, especially in the drying Summer, so Bug Balm provides a protective barrier to help keep skin moisturised. Beautiful shea butter infused with chickweed is deeply moisturising and skin loving. And with the lemony fresh scent of citronella and eucalyptus, you'll smell like you just stepped out of the garden.

Apply to exposed areas before venturing outside or as an aftercare balm. Avoid eyes. If irritation occurs discontinue use. For ages 2 years & up.

Can’t live without it

Have been using Bug Balm since a friend introduced it to me about 2 yrs ago but was quite sceptical at first so bought the tester tin and tested it on my toddler (mozzies love her so she’s the best test) and I was blown away when she didn’t get bitten. I use this religiously and have since bought the 50g which I keep at home. The tin I refill and carry with me everywhere (in case of impromptu late nights outdoors, beer gardens). I used it in Hawaii with great success. I sometimes use aeroguard just to see what works better and I usually get bitten. So bug balm for the win! Will use this always


I was looking for a more sustainable, vegan repellent for too long and tried a few other products that didn't work, but this is amazing! Smells so good and small to enough carry in my purse

For the whole family

I have found Bug Balm to be super effective, I put it on once every 2-3hrs when we go rainforest walking and it has made such a difference. I am usually the one that mozzies go for, but not with this on! I use this on my baby as well, and haven't had an issue!


I love this, It is the only thing that works on my 2 year old daughter to repel the mozzies. I love that it is all natural so no nasties, I have bought so many jars of this in the past and will continue to buy this product for our whole family.

Sleep Balm

My whole family uses this amazing balm. I’m spreading the word it’s so great! Thank you
