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.

    Works Well

    Stopped the itch from mozzie bite but such a strong smell...

    This stuff is incredible

    Even the Daintree mozzies and midgies couldn’t handle this stuff.

    Fab balm

    My daughter gets eaten by mozzies at night, she puts the balm on before she goes to bed. Even when she forgets the next day she uses it to heal her bites works like magic. It heals up the bites quickly. We are very happy with this balm.

    Beautiful texture & smell (+it works)

    Discovered these products at Ceres in Brunswick & completely converted to this brand!

    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
