Bug Balm - the Natural Alternative to Chemical Insect Repellent

Picnic, camping, evening stroll along the beach, then you feel that twinge. The first little nibble. And before you realise it you are swatting and scratching like mad. The most perfect moment can be completely ruined by a swarm of mosquitoes. But frankly, the nasty stench of synthetic-based insect repellents doesn't do much for me either.

Our Bug Balm is the natural way to keep pesky insects like mosquitoes at bay, with herbs that naturally repel insects like Citronella, Lemongrass & Geranium. We also add Chickweed in a Shea Butter base which moisturises skin, and it smells delish, so it's win win both ways!

Apply to exposed areas and existing bites. For ages 2 years & up.
