Bug off Balm

$24.00
$20.87

This effective and safe all natural balm is a great insect repellent. Made from beesewax, cocoa butter, coconut and castor oils  it contains citronella , lemongrass, lemon eucalyptus, peppermint and geranium essential oils. All these oils are known for their insect repellent properties. We took a 30 gm pot of this away with us for a three week Sth East Asia holiday, which we thought would be an excellent way to trial it out .........    Verdict: Great! the balm was in constant use and we seemed to barely make a hole in the pot as a little goes a very long way. Best of all we were bite free! We have also had excellent feedback from users closer to home.

To use: Dot the balm around ankles and exposed 'interesting to insects' body parts. Reapply as necessary. The balm is usefully applied before bed, especially if there are mosquitoes about. Dot on temples shoulders and arms if exposed. Do not use on children under 2 years of age.

We are also looking at developing a room diffuser using the oils.

We use the same essential oil blend in our insect repelling candles, with excellent feedback from customers.

The balm comes in two sizes, a 30 gm pot ($15.00) and a 65 gm tin ($ 24.00)
